    hello from a first time owner (tips?)

    Hello,
    About to put my ski in the water for the first time tomorrow 5/28.
    Its a 1300r 2008. Picked it up used a month ago. Has 32 hours and it looks stock.

    Any tips for me? Gas in the ski is from last year and has stabilizer in it. Should i try mixing it with higher octane or just go with it? 3/4 of the tank is full.

    Never been on the ski before, not even sure what tips i am looking for or what to expect from a ride.
    Any suggestions are welcome.

    welcome to the HULK ! top it off with super/high octane. have you ridden before? this hull design takes a little getting used to . i just got mine last fall and coming from a 3 seater to a 2 was a new world when it comes to moving around on it. if you plan on riding 2 up be cautious. it is kinda of a 1 person ski ... make sure to ck the oil before you fire it up also check the plugs...have fun !!!

    Once you figure out what you are doing you will be fine .....until then hold on and remember NO BRAKES !!! Throttle = turning ability
