I start it and run for 5 min and let it cool. I do that 2 times,then run it easy a couple of times and let it cool down. after first hour drain oil and change filter,check all bolts for tightness.than ride it easy for tankfull of gas or even 2 tankfulls.Thats the hard part riding a predator easy. than check every thing again,change oil if you want to, dont have to though,I would after 8 to 10 hours of riding.I use what polaris recommends.Riding easy means no fast starts,dont wind it out ,dont ride at same speed for long periods of time, dont let idle for a long time,and let it cool down,dont get motor to hot,let fan come on but dont keep running to long or hard after that,let it cool.Keep an Eye on coolant level also it will move alittle but thats OK just dont let it get to low. That is how I break my quads in,hope it helps you and good luck.
