GTI 2011 - Two Questions (Carbon seal/boot And Engine Light)
Was going along about 1/2 throttle and had one long beep and the Engine Light (not scroll) appeared on the cluster.
I pulled the lanyard immediately waited a few seconds, reattached and restarted, no beep after.
The Maintenance Light (wrench) has been on since 204 hours, but I think it is early -- First maintenance was 10 hours, second at 110 and I expected the light would come for the third at 210 (one hundred hours after the last). It appeared at 204 and I have my dealer appointment booked for next week.
Could the engine light come on with the long beep as a reminder that maintenance is required - The manual suggests this could be the case.
As per a post ride check I noticed this black line around the carbon seal/boot area on the hull, and the boot has some up/down
Photo attached. Should there be any up/down play in the boot?
Any thoughts on these items?
Would appreciate your input!!

A short video of the play in the boot.
Is this normal - is this a problem? Can I still ride like this?
Any input would be appreciated!

Your right about the long beep and maintenance light.
It is programed to remind you for service.
That line on the hull really isn't that bad.
Ive seen a lot worse lines and they didn't have issues.
Your doing good for a 2011 and over 200+ hours.
Just change oil and rip on.
Check the oil after the stealership visit.
Run it for 10-20 min to really warm it up then check the oil.
Reason I say that is 9 out of 10 skis I buy that have been dealership serviced are over full on oil by 1+- quarts of oil.

Yes you use a pump.
They have it in the hulk store but I got mine from west marine.
I will get back to you on the pm you sent later today.
