Where is the break in procedure?
I just bought a brand new 2009 GTX. This is my first new ski and I want to get it right. I've read several post were people have said just do whats in the operators guide. I've read this book twice now and still can't find that section, can someone help me out? Page numbers?
Here is the part number of my operators manual 219 000 588.
Thank you green hulk,

page 63 in the 08 operators guide.
to achieve a good break-in, throttle lever should not exceed 3/4 opening. However, brief acceleration and speed variations contribute to a good break-in.
dont be afraid to pin it for a sec and let off, key to a breakin is to very your rpms

Wonder how long?
I wonder how long this thread will last before someone will recommend this?:
I sure wouldn't feel comfortable doing it on a brand new $10K+ ski but it seems like there are quite a few people on here that recommend it .

for the average person break in is just normal riding around just dont thrash the thing for the first 5-10 hours and dont baby it either.

I was running 8640 RPM on my motor yesterday with less than 2 hours on the rebuild. Didnt stay ther more than about 5 seconds though.
Seating the rings in is the biggest concern, if you dont seat the rings early on, you will never seat them in. You just want to idle around varying the throttle for the first 15 minutes, then start going a little faster constantly varying the throttle. Do some short good hard accelerations to about 8000 RPM for 3 - 5 secons to seat the rings. After couple of heat cycles, take it to short hard accelerations to WOT for about 5 seconds.

when you guys are saying vary the throttle is this kind of the same thing as when riding a two stroke dirt bike?
