    STX-15F Break In

    We just bought a new STX-15F. How many hours are recommended before pulling skiis and wakeboards?

    Thanks!

    It should be in the manual. Enjoy the ski!

    I started pulling skier and tube from the day 1 on my then brand new 15F in 2004 and the ski still runs like new.
    Just do your normal maintenance, oil change, pump bearing check, etc. on the ski and it will be fine.

    Warm it up and ride it like you stole it, change the oil and filter at 5 or 10 hours and make sure to flush the cooling system with the engine running. Pull the spark plugs and put antiseize on them and use a tq wrench to tighten them
