New to the site
Just picked up my 2012 RXP-X last saturday. The dealer put 1/4 tank fuel and had to rush back to shore as we ran out of gas. Can it keep cheaper than this? Look forward to learning from all the experts on this site. So far I was told to use the green key for the 1st 10 hr. Scared me with warranty implications blah blah blah

Welcome to GreenHulk.
DONT USE THE GREEN KEY TO BREAK IN THE SKI.
Your ski will be limited for the first 5hrs by the ecu. Use the yellow key and just dont hold the trottle WOT for long periods of time.

Do not use the Green Key for the first 10 hours. Ride the ski how you plan on riding it with short bursts of WOT (wide open throttle). This will help the rings set correctly. Also, very your RPM's for the first 10 hours or so too.

Welcome to the Forums. Make sure to open a line of credit or loan. You are going to want to mod your ski!!! Its addicting. First thing i would do is install one or two Rule automatic Bilge pumps.750a. Ride Safe

DON'T use the green key, instead wrap it around your salesmans neck for giving you bad advise.
Use the normal yellow key and ride the ski at different speeds (RPM'S) in "Sport Mode" for the first few hours to allow proper break in. After 5 hours or so the ECU will open up and the ski will have full power.
On the 2012 RXPX, when the fuel light comes on you still have lots of fuel left.....
On the way home from the dealer stop at your bank and open up a line of credit to pay for the addiction.
Congratulations on your new ski.....

IMO the sales man gave him good advice
lower rpms and lower boost seems like good advice
you don’t need the extra rpms to break in the crank or SC
you don’t need the boost to break in the rings
boost on new rings will just push fuel in the crank case
6-7000 rpms seems like plenty for the first few hours
now I want to here why the green key is bad for break in

Second, the piston rings being set properly during the first few hours of run time IS critical. And following the Manufactures advice on proper break in, does this correctly.
Read your Owners Manual, operate your new ski as directed by the manufacture!
I am sure you will get many more opinions here - so let the flaming begin!!
