    What should I have the Dealer check on a 11' Rxt-x before I take possesion?

    Im fixing to buy a 2011 Rxt-x and was working on a list of things I should have the dealer check before I take possesion and it hits the water? This is all I have so far so any help would be appreciated.

    1) Jet pump bolts

    IMO the SMARTEST move u can make is just get the ski home and completely go over everything YOURSELF...good luck!

    1) Jet pump bolts
    1. ALL Bolts not just pump! Steering bolts have fallen out, pump bolts, iBrake mechanism bolts,etc. Blue Loctite EVERY friggin bolt you can get to and check torque.

    2. Tighten every hose clamp on Intercooler(IC), Supercharger(SC), Throttle Body(TB).

    3. DESS post has been sensitive with key to start. Start the ski, several times BEFORE you take delivery. Start and stop the ski several times - before you drive off......

    4. Make sure NO "Maint Req" messages appear on dash cluster - BUDS service reset required.

    5. Check OIL level make sure it is NOT overfilled!!

    6. Some guys have had problems with drive shaft splines and impeller splines - engine alignment has been the problem. Obviously, your dealer is not going to pull the iBR and pump to check this first......

    7. Purchase a "Shop Manual", cost about $129 but is worth it - you WILL need it -to do your own work - which you WILL want to do!

    8. Read your Owners Manual 2-3 times before you ride the first time, then read it again after your first ride - it will save you lots of dumb questions.......

    9. Check rear hatch panels alignment, make sure rubber tips on bolt heads have been siliconed on, they are a PITA to dig out of the hull and effect the rear seal.....

    10. Purchase the 4 year extended warranty.

    Enjoy

    Yeah, have the stealer check the warranty. It has a habit of not working when you need it most.

    What all takes place during the PDI of these machine's? Dealer just called and said he just got one in thats in the crate and would honor the 5yr warranty promotion that the boat show is now offering. Looks like I will be the proud new owner of a RXT-X real soon.

    Here is the deal that im getting.
    2011 Rxt-x
    $13,200 before tax's
    Trailer $650
