    BREAK IN SUCKS!

    Finally got the ski in the water today (air temp 63, water 51). I had the learning key in the whole time just to be safe. I was dying during the whole ride. I have a buddy who has a Yami FX HO, he had the best time blowing by me and laughing as he did it. I sorta thought it was funny. I put 0.8 hrs on today, and it felt like an eternity. I really want to be sure this ski lasts a long time so im going to do everything i can not to open it up before the 10 hr. mark.

    As for my first impression: Im glad i invested in it. The ride was comfortable (to my surprise), coming off my GP1300R. This is my first four stroke, and i love how quiet it is at idle, and the sound during take off is awsome too. Cant wait for the 10hr. mark and my next day off

    Don't use the learning key to break in! You want to vary the rpm's you can't do that with the learning key!

    To properly break in your engine you need to vary your throttle in a wide range of RPM's and the learning key will prohibit you from doing so.

    Vary your throttle... do not hold to any one RPM for too long. After a couple hours of use do some short 15 second bursts of 3/4 throttle.
    After 4 hours or so do some short full throttle burts for 15 seconds or so.

    These bursts of throttle help to seat your rings which is a VERY important step in proper engine break in and to ensure your engine will make the most power that it can.

    all RPM ranges. Stay away from the upper RPM ranges for the first 3 hours or so. Definately give it some 3/4 throttle blips early on though. Seat those rings, it's very important.
