On the old 350's.....Richen the carb up, warm the motor up
and drive it around, varying the throttle alot for about a 1/4
tank. Don't pin it. Let it cool down and check all torque values
on the head bolts. Repeat. Second half of tank, go have fun.
Change plug, and adjust carb as needed after first tank.
Checking the valves would also be a plus at this point. Just
some peace of mind.....

Half turn is fine.

Another thing I'll mention. I like to avoid synthetic oils for
break in. Just find a good old school oil that will work with
the clutch. Dump that oil after no more then 2 tanks.
