    2012 RXP-X 10 Hour Service?!!? First time poster long time searcher!!

    Long time reader first time poster.... I have been reading this forum for 2 years now and have really enjoyed it but I now have a question. I have a 04 RXP and new 2012 RXP-X so I know my way around the watercraft fairly well and I am not afraid to dive into the servicing of my watercraft.

    I have a 2012 RXP-X, I have searched high and low but can't seen to find a consistent answer.

    I was told by the dealer that if the 10 hour service isn't performed the ski will go into 'limp back mode' an hour or two after the 10 hour mark, is this true? Can I perform the 10 hour service or would I be better off taking it to the dealer just to be sure? I know it would need an oil change, no problem there but what else do they do to the ski?

    Thanks!!

    The advise is easy. Just let them Doo it. It will help maintain the integrity of the warranty. The only thing you hurt by letting them Doo it, is your pocketbook......

    Totally untrue. Will not happen.

    I cant understand how a dealer could give out such false info.

    The dealer is very wrong on his info.
    The 2011 and newer skis is 25hr 1st service.
    But you do want them to do it because of possible warranty issues in the future.

    Do it your self and save the coin for something else like gas.
    Not having the dealer do it will not affect your warranty.

    If you purchase your own oil and filter and have the receipt you are good. I never go to the dealership unless I need them for computer work. The Sea-Doo dealership is one of my biggest accounts here in CA. This is what I use and it is safe for the clutches. AMSOIL 10w-40 Synthetic Marine Oil
