    new to the site

    hey all new to the site i just bought an 05 rxp and rxt.
    still haven't got to ride it yet have to wait for my next days off.
    had to drive 800 miles to pick them up in texas.
    got the rxp for $8999 otd and the rxt for $9600.
    had a question for you all would breaking in the engine over a period of 2 days be a bad thing?
    i wanted to have it serviced before next month when i go on a 10 day camping trip at the lake
    thanks

    You just need to get 10 hrs of running time on them for break in.
    You could do it in a day if you wanted.

    Welcome aboard!

    In my opinion breaking in the RXP and RXT in a 2 day period is fine as long as your not going full throttle. You need to start out slow and work you way up in speeds and make sure you run at different speeds levels!. Just give it bursts of full throttle for maybe 5-10 seconds at a time! Also make sure you are using your yellow key to break it in. The learning key does not allow you to vary the rpm levels!

    Every couple of hours just check you fittings to make sure nothing is loose, and make sure your oil level in between the 2 bends on the stick!

    I'm from Dallas TX and just curious where did you get your ski's from?

    Again Congrads on your new purchases, and welcome aboard!

    Jungo Welcome. You will get allot from all the great people on this site.

    Also you got a sweet deal, and what dealer was this so others might be able to take advantage of it.


    Break in! Ok here is how I did mine and she runs hard. There has been much talk on how the rings actually seat in break in. But what I did is I warmed it up for 15 mins and then went to shore and checked for any leaks or things that didn't look good and also check to make sure oil level was good.
    I then took it out for a 1 hour ride and on the first 20 mins of this ride I did 5 hard 10-15 second WOT burst. They claim you have a short window to seat the rings. Then after this I did the normal break in as I varied the throttle for the next 9 hours of break in. My ski runs stock 68-69mph.

    I hope this helps, but most will tell you not to baby it. That you need WOT in the break in.

    WOT means, (Wide open throttle).

    Have fun and be safe, Austin
