    Dilemma on how to flush my 2011 RXT-X 260 RS

    Hi guys. I have a 2011 RXT-X 260 RS and I want to make sure how to flush it properly (I use salt away). I've been reading here that some say like 60 seconds fresh water and maybe 30 with salt away. But that's just one opinion because others say 2 minutes and even 4 minutes fresh water and 1 salt away. I can't find a specific time in my 2011 Operator's Guide, anyone knows the exact page? Thanks.

    never run your ski on a hose for more than 2 minutes straight on the hose..
    unless you have a way of cooling the carbon ring from underneath the ski..

    I don't use salt away, i ride in salt all the time.. i rinse everything down that can have salt on it..

    ok. It was only one time, but I ran it for 5 minutes. It's theres a way to know if my carbon ring suffered any damage?

    Yeah...
    When your riding your ski it starts taking on water around where the drive shaft goes thru the hull.
    Then you know you cooked the carbon ring.
    I would also suggest adding a bilge pump or 2 to your ski.
    There are many threads on installing a bilge pump.. just use the search function.

    You for sure got it hot...
    I've seen people run them alot longer than 5 min and have no issues.
    But I really wouldn't doooo it again.

    Get a bilge or 2 anyway... they can save you and your ski the 1st time they come on..
    Salt water is the worst enemy of any pwc

    Ok, thanks. I was unaware of this because I'm really new to all this. Specially when I've always seen my brother in law keep the seadoo running on the garden hose while he clean the outside of the ski. He has a 2005 RXT and never gave him any carbon ring trouble, but I will definitely let him know too. Thanks.
