    Just got a brand new gtx limited is 260

    Hello:
    hey guys I just got a new gtx limited is 260 and I put 11 hours already on it. Manual said first service at 25 hours but selling dealer said after first 10 hours. I bought the 5 year warranty on it so I don't want to get my warranty canceled. I am very mechanically inclined and have done complete engine overhaul on my other skis but they were 2 stroke. After first service what's required by them so they don't cancel my warranty? Thanks in advance.

    You can doo all your own services just keep records and receipts just in case there is an issue.
    I think doo has pushed the 2014 models to 50 hr 1 st service.

    Thanks wot. So that means that the 10 hr service is not needed. I don't mind spending the money if it's required. After first service I plan to do all my maintenance. Hey wot we are from the same area, where do you usually ride?

    The first service is at 25 hours on the newer skis. BRP now says the 2014's can goto 50 hours before first service.

    They cant cancel your warranty for not doing a service, they maybe less likely to want to help, but they wont cancel your warranty.

    I have the same boat as the OP. My dealer said 25 hours. I'm at 13 hours on it now-and haven't touched the oil.
    I can change it myself. But, the 1 thing that scares me, is replacing the oil filter. IF, you drop that stupid little Acorn Nut on the top, on a non-iS ski, you're going fishing for about an hour, with a magnet on a stick(been there, done that).
    On an iS ski-I shudder to think about dropping that little nut. Therefore, I will be having a "professional" do my oil/filter change at 25 hours.

    Interesting conversation with the Service Manager at the Dealer; he said 25 hours. But, the 25 hour Service is $289!!! Which includes oil/filter, and get this-they change the spark plugs!!! Why??
    He said "they all show a brown ring around them at about 25 hours, so they should be changed".....da hell??
    I used to change my own plugs on my 2008 RXT-X, and usually went 100 hours or so...never had a plug go bad. In fact, the plugs I pulled out at 100 hours still looked serviceable.
    So, what am I missing here? Why do the plugs on a 2013 GXT 260 Limited iS need to be changed at the first 25 hour service? I don't have the manual in front of me-so I don't know that it's even required.

    OP-here is my posts when I bought my Limited; http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=203868
    Pay attention to the 2 Fault Codes my boat displayed in the first 2 hours of riding. You may get these fault codes. They are not an issue. And, I'm curious if you've already gotten them, or will in the future. Read the post about what they mean, and why the occur.

    So far, after 13 hours-no issues.
