Use good oil and you don't have to shake it.

As for warm-up, rev it slightly above idle and blip the throttle between idle and a little above. Keep doing this until the head feels warm on a blaster, or you can feel heat from the radiator on a banshee.

You want to warm it up until the throttle feels clean and smooth. 2-strokes are very fussy about their warming up, I always make sure its up to riding temp before I take it out. I've got some pics of what happens to your piston from riding with out warming up, if your intrested in seeing them.

Does it hurt four strokes to not warm them up because I don't do it too often (Or not like i should anyways)

It is interesting to see those pictures of the pistons riding without proper warm up.

I agree.
I don't blip the throttle much during warm up, but if the cylinder is not warm to the touch (a lot warmer than my hand), I don't take off till it is.

As far as shaking the tank, I would be surprized if it should take more than 10 seconds .

4-strokes are not as picky as 2-strokes, but you should still let it get close to operating temp before taking off on it. It WILL make your motor last longer. [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/img]

warm it up till the head pipes or radiator is warm to the touch,giving a 2 smoke blips of gas in between idle.4 strokes need this too,an when a 4 stroke isnt boggy when y rev it out it is warmed up to take off on.Both engine designs need to be properly warmed up or you will have a cold seizure,all 4 corners on the pistons will hve lines on them if ya ever had a cold seizure an had to rebuild our bike.
