    Cool! But... Unless you have a roller cam in that engine, you do NOT want to let it idle until the cam has been broken in properly. Follow the directions that came with the camshaft or the cam lobes can be damaged.

    I also don't like to fire up a new engine until the exhaust and mufflers are hooked up. This makes it much easier to hear any unusual noises coming from the engine before major damage occurs. You'll be ripping up the roads and trails soon! [​IMG]
