    Breaking In

    I came across this on another forum, what is your guy's consensus?

    Thanks,

    I agree with it somewhat, but the newer Seadoo's rpm's are limited for the first 5 hrs.

    Everybody has their own opinion on this sort of thing.

    The way I have always done it, is to not baby it but also to not hammer the crap out if it for about the first 2 hours or so.

    ride it like you stole it.. vary the rpms during break in.. don't hold any rpm for longer than a 30 or so seconds..
    do that until the ski is fully opened up at 10 hours..
    first 5 hours ski will only max out at about 60-62mph about (7000ish rpms) gaining about 200 rpms for every hour after that up to the speed/rpm limiter..
    speeds and rpms are approximate I don't remember exact numbers..

    Will be getting 2 Sparks. Do they still limit the RPM during break in?

    If my RPM's are not limited, I would be able to change the oil much sooner like in the article. Is this a good idea. That is where I am wanting guidence, at which point should I change the oil if I don't have to wait for RPM's to unlock.
