Hello again. I am getting close to starting my buds 850 after new rings and valves. What oil and grade should I use for break in and how long. Can I get a new filter locally in Texas and what filter should I get. I plan to change to synthetic Mobil 1 15w-50 after break in. I used Hastings rings from MAPP with new guides valves and seals. I drained all oil from the oiltank and crankcase and need to replace the filter. After filling the oil tank with the proper amount should I lift the rear wheel and manually turn the engine over with the plugs out to get oil back in the crankcase before startup or just crank it a lot with the kickstart???? Thanks again--You guys are helping a lot. I wish you had some guitar repair questions as I have been a repairman for over 30 years. All kinds Gibson Martin Fender etc.etc. Muchas- Gracias from Tejas for all the great info.
