    New GTR. Question about 10 hr service.

    Just picked up a 2013 GTR. I was wondering if anyone's user guide actually calls for a 10hr service? I couldn't find anywhere in mine where it does.
    My schedule starts with the 25hr service.

    I got my 2012 GTR about a month+ ago from a dealer and it had 17 hours on it from the previous owner and the dealer said they had done a service on it. They also said they service anything they get used before they put it out on the lot. This really doesn't answer your question though. Sorry. I'm sure at any point after it's broken in you could get it serviced.

    On another note. I'm sure noticing a lot of GTR's being bought.

    I finally got mine on the water for the first time just this past Sunday and between the wife and I we put about 2 hours on it and we are both very happy with it so far. It works great for her more mellow riding style and works great for my faster style. Perfect ski if you can only have one ski. The ibs is great for coming back in too. I can't wait to take it out again and really start getting more used to it.

    When are you going to change your avatar to a nice picture of your new GTR?

    I too noticed that in the Manuel for my 13 gtr only calls for a 25 hour service as your first. I asked the salesmen and he said "we'll they use to all be 10hr for the first service hmmmm." I just figured I'd do mine somewhere in between 15-20 hours.

    From talking to the dealership by me that even if you bring it in for a "10 hour" service its more or less a tune up(oil change ect.)Regardless you would have to bring it in at 25 hours. The dash will remind you of the 25 hour service and I am only assuming here but if you go past the 25 hour service it would affect your warranty.

    You can change your own oil and save big $$$.

    9 out of 10 stealership serviced skis I get are Atleast a quart over full on oil.
    So if you do use a stealership for your oil change then check it after.
    Remember its not like checking a cars oil.

    Gtr is a bad ASS ski...

    Probably never, "I've got to show off my paint work "


    Sounds like the 10hr service is not needed any longer.
    I will be doing my own maintenance, and switching to Amzoil or some other full synthetic with the MA2 rating after the break-in period.

    You can do the maintenance yourself and not void the warranty as long as you keep records.

    Avoid full synthetic oil. With the s/c skis you need wet clutch formula.
    I've been using Valveoline 10/40 wet clutch motorcycle oil.

    I noticed the manual still says that too. but as long as the oil is MA1 or MA2 rated you should be fine "or better" with full synthetic. Those are the ratings used for wet clutches.
