    finally got to try out my rides

    well all i have to say is that these machines are amazing. brought 4 friends with me to help get the hours on em and 2 of em are in the process of getting one. my only problem is i only got to 8.2 hours on both of em. not sure if i really need to get the extra 1.8 hours.
    the thing is the lake is 2 hours away and if i have to take it just to get the 1.8 hours then come back to have them serviced sounds like a really long day. my question is do i really have to get all the way to 10 hours or can i have them serviced now. my next lake trip is on tuesday will be camping for 3 nights with a bunch of friends i didn't want to stop the fun in the begining and tell them i have to leave cause my skis need to get serviced.
    any help is much appreciated

    You can have them service over 10 hrs I had mine service closer to the 20 hr mark! 12-15 hrs would be fine! You don't have to have it done exactly at 10 hrs

    it doens't need to be exactly at 10..... 8.5 is fine...

    or you can wait and do it when ur at 20 hours.... get it done tho! that's the important part.... i wouldn't personally go anymore than 15-20 hours without getting the original oil out of there.

    I got mine at 17 because of the same reason...
    Seadoo dealership just said to make sure the oil is ok.

    Check the oil, coolant and make sure you vary the rpms....

    You BETTER be giving it some short bursts of WOT now. 10-15 seconds is fine. This helps seat the rings properly.
