    Oil Change

    Guys when do you normally get your 2nd oil change? I have a 09 rxp-x with about 26 hours on it, got my first done at 10 hours.

    For unmodified the manual says Every 100 hours or annually. Unless you're going to mod the hell out of it you're fine till 100 hours.

    Still breaking in,, even though not officially anymore.
    I'd change it AT LEAST twice a year. Or every 25 hours.
    These engines lead a tough life. Oil and filters are cheap
    compared to a premature rebuild.
    Plus you can get to know your ski better and it puts'
    your head in there to check coolant, hoses, cables, etc etc

    No such thing as too much preventative maintenance.\

    I bet I've changed my oil 10 times in 110 hours.

    I change mine every 25 hours or at the end of every season, just before I winterize it. Whichever comes first.

    Changing it once a year should be more than enough. I dont think many people will ride 100 hours in one season. Well, I take that back it all depends on where you live. I only get to ride 5 months out of the year so I will be changing mine once a year.

    If you ride the sh!t out of it every 25hrs witch is what i do and will check sc slip while im at it. The harder you ride the sooner you need to change the oil, as the oil will break down. IMO you want to change the oil befor it breaks down. you can only change i think 3L 1.5L will stay in the motor so change it while its still good.
