    New 2011 300x.. what to check before i put it on the water?

    Ok as the title states, i just got home with a new 2011 300x... Aside from me already pulling the engine oil dipstick, what else needs checked?

    I understand about the impeller nut needing checked... how big of a job am i getting into time wise... i dont have a spline tool so i dont see that happening yet...

    need some advice !! what all do i need to look for?

    You forgot the most important thing. Install tassels on the handle bars lol.

    Also check the oil with the ski level. But go out and have some fun congrats again on the new ski.

    At some point soon, I would make a decision if "you" or the "dealer" will do your scheduled maintenance. If it will be "you" doing the maintenance than two things you will want soon are an Oil Extractor device and a Oil Filter Wrench (for obvious purposes). And I would surf these threads; there is a ton of info here. Here and there you may come across some "contentiousness" in the threads . . . . . don't read too much into that. Actually, we all like each other here. Hope you become a Regular. JB
