    2008 RXTX, hasnt run in two years.

    I have a 2008 RXTX and I havent had it in water or even started in two years. its parked at friends house cause HOV wont let me part at mine so I havent even seen it since 2010 I think. Had some injuries in last two years and work has been overwhelming so I havent even thought about the ski. is there anything I should do before I attempt to start it? I had it winterized in 2010 but thats it since then! Im sure battey will need to be changed unless im lucky and it still can hold a charge! anything else I should look into?

    drain old fuel
    put new fuel
    I'd change the oil after it sitting there for 2 years
    possibly change the plugs and start er up.

    sounds easy enough. I know some have useda bit of oil in combustion chamber to free up the rings on some old engines, either wd-40 or mystery oil!

    yeah, getting lube to the piston area isn't a bad idea after that long. I don't think it's that big of a deal, but I know some people on the boards here would recommend it.

    Yeah I just got my 07 rxp back up and running. Last it ran was in 08 after the washers let go. That along with just life events its been in pieces. A couple weeks ago I finished it up, put new oil in, made sure all old gas was out, replaced battery as it was dead and went out. Ran like a champ as I took it out for an ocean run.
