every Ducati gets a full-on dyno run up to the red line the same way... the rings are already seated before it leaves the factory floor.

Yes, Motoman does explain exactly why his method should work better than easy break in. Did you read his web page? Here is just a small part of what he said:



"The Problem With "Easy Break In" ...

The honed crosshatch pattern in the cylinder bore acts like a file to allow the rings to wear. The rings quickly wear down the "peaks" of this roughness, regardless of how hard the engine is run.



There's a very small window of opportunity to get the rings to seal really well ... the first 20 miles !!



If the rings aren't forced against the walls soon enough, they'll use up the roughness before they fully seat. Once that happens there is no solution but to re hone the cylinders, install new rings and start over again."



The web page goes on to show photos of two pistons, one from a engine that was raced immediately with no easy break in, the other from an engine that was broken in by the manual.



Those of you that are saying "where's the evidence?"...evidence has been provided on the website. You can believe what you want, but the MototuneUSA web site does provide evidence and reasoning to back up their statements about engine break in

There's no such thing as idiot proof -- just idiot resistant...
