2012 RXP-X Idle and steering issues
I have just taken delivery of 2 2012 RXP-Xs. Both skis idle at about 2100 RPMs and both skis are biased to turn right. I can't figure out how to set the idle lower - is there an electronic way as it is fly by wire? With regard to the steering, I have heard you can adjust the nozzle but do I want to go there - difficulty? I called SeaDoo and they were absolutely no help. I hate to have to pull them off the lift and drive 2 hrs back to the dealer.

I would buy a manual for the ski. Extreamly helpful.

Welcome to GreenHulk.
Mine idles around 1800. Yours may idle down after they get broken in, if they dont you can always look at it this way. You will get through no wake zones faster.

First of all Welcome to the Hulk!
1. Order the Shop Manual from the dealer, it is the ONLY way to get one, they don't exist anymore in electronic form due to copy write laws.
2.Read your Owners Manual, the section that describes how to raise the iBR gate, so that you can see the steering nozzle. You NEED to know how to do this, to inspect the pump-venturi, steering nozzle area. You will need to make sure all of these bolts are tight and secure. You can adjust the steering nozzle here also and up front as described earlier. It is VERY common for the steering to pull one way or the other - I know it is BS - just a fact!
3. Install bilge pumps - period.
4. The ECU controls all engine functions, you are not broken in yet and won't until around 5-7 hours depending on how you ride. IMO, after the first hour, run the shit out of it, but for short bursts, not sustained long runs. Do as the Owners Manual says, vary RPM but run it hard to set the piston rings. Do NOT use the Learners Key to do this!!!!!! WHat you are seeing is normal.
5. Put a wrench on every single hose clamp, bolt head, nut you can get to and check that it is tight! These ski's take a pounding and things just get loose. The more you get familiar with these ski's the better off you will be and won't have to rely on the stealership!!

I'm running at 1700rpm at idle. I have 17 hours on it.

I'm 1700 as well. 38 hours
My steering pulls right. The dealer adjusted it twice to get it straight and its still doing it even though the nozzle points straight now.
Really annoying on a ski that leans sideways at the slightest turn of the bars... The faster I go the more I have to cock the bars left to compensate.
