I would say follow the manual and vary the throttle between ide and 2000 for the first 15 hours. Then vary the throttle between idle and 3000 rpms for the next 10 hours. At 25 hours she needs to go back to the dealer for and oil change and a check up. Then letter rip and get ready for that odiferous "burn off" smell the first time you really heat that motor up.

You got the MCX in an X1. That boat is going to jump out of the water. El Jeffe - Welcome aboard....

10 hours is the standard break-in, and I suggest you follow it. Not only is it the best for your engine, but it is the only way to keep your warranty up to date.

Also, change that oil at 10hrs. Check your lug nuts on the trailer, brake fluid, and tire pressure.

Did you get a manual from the dealership? They list out what to do for each of the hours from 1-10.
