Bones, what should I take pictures of? Correct me if I’m wrong but I thought the break in period was below 500miles right? It is currently at ~820miles.

Cubey what spark plug do you reccomend?
The Honda factory service manual says this. I ran a Spree in very hot weather with the standard plug and it never seized, but maybe it was luck. I will probably get the "extended high speed riding" plug for my Gyro and carry the standard in a tool bag on the scooter too.

Could this issue mean I need a new engine?
