    2008 RXP, and 2008 wake 215. What do i need to do?

    Picking up 2 new rides this weekend. 2008 RXP and a wake 215. They have been sitting covered at my buddies beach house for probably something around 2 years. what do i need to do to these things to get them going again? 35 hours on the RXP, and 25 hours on the wake. any advice is appreciated.

    1......If they haven't been kept on a trickle charger, Both are going to need batteries $100+ X2

    2......Drain all the gas out of the tanks........then refill with fresh

    3......Do an oil/filter change $150 +/- for both.....do yourself and you'll need an extractor to suck the old oil out....There is no drain plug

    4......Go ride

    You're looking at 350-400 to do everything depending on where you buy the stuff

    Cool

    Put a double dose of fuel injector cleaner in them and change the spark plugs after the 1st tank of fuel.

    Change oil and filter.

    Also dooo everything 4skis said.

    Thanks guys. I got a great deal on these things so i just need them to run good so i don't have to worry. Been reading on hear about supercharger rebuilds. They have low hours but i really don't want anything to fail on me. Any ideas on how long i should ride them before sending them out?

    You should be good on the 08's for washers....I believe it was the first year for the change from the ceramics......I have an 08 rxtx with 44 hours.....hard riding no problems.

    Due to there age I would suggest rebuilding them soon.
    Bearings, washers and seals every time.
    There is no crystal ball that will say how long they will last.

    Maybe at least inspect them.....Taking the SC off only takes a few minutes......I agree with wotxxxsd though.....DEALER=WORST

    Thanks guys, I already plan to send them to Jerry when i do it, im not a fan at all of dealerships especially powersports dealerships. I guess i will pull them pretty soon after i get the skis and send them out. Any recommendations on good spark plugs and batteries?
