Do you warm up your waverunner or just have at it?
I usually putt around at no wake speeds for a few minutes then cruise around not getting on it hard for another few minutes. Is this just about right, not long enough, or doesn't really matter?

I warm it up... Have a short ride from the ramp with no wake to get out to open water.

I give it 5-8 minutes of warm-up before I rip into it.

I have 10 minutes in no wake zone that suffices.

No wake for a minute, then putz around at 2-3k rpm for a couple minutes, then ride like I stole it till I'm out of fuel...Rinse and repeat.

Warm up is very necessary for many reason. First of all when the engine has been sitting for a while a lot of oil returns to the oil pan leaving some parts of the engine unlubricated such as the supercharger. Also some ECU's have parameters set to only allow it to perform at full potential between a certain temperature range such as the Vi-PEC.
It's good to warm up the engine and let it reach operating temp before you rip it.
