    hey guys!
    I just got a new Seadoo RXP260 (thanks for the people who made the choice easier) attached are pics of my new ski.
    The dealer told me that the break in should take around 10 hours.
    1) I was just wondering if i could just use the yellow key now (after they come and service it off course). i just hit 7 hours.
    2) Also when the handle bar is straight i feel the ski going slightly to the left. a lot of people told me it can be because of the green key and that the pump isn't using the maximum pressure, or because of the sea but it was calm that day.
    3) Also a quick question about Salt away. Everyone recomened that i have to use salt away every time. should i flash it the regular way then use salt away, or just with salt away is fine? I also have the move 1 trailer, witch means i can't fully lift the trailer from the front to let all the water out. Is it okay to keep the tap flushing water in the jet ski. till the next day or even week?

    hope to hear from you guys soon!

    1. Never use the green key.
    2. Always use the yellow key.
    3. Purchase the Shop Manual, invaluable.
    4. Steering adjustment located on the nozzle might be enough.
    5. Salt Away is an excellent product. Make sure ski is running when flushing. No need to flush after.
    6. Always run in Fresh water lake after ocean ride if possible.
    7. Congratulation on your new ski.

    Does the ski track straight at 35MPH....if it does its fine. They hull is cut very deep so it reacts to weight distribution very quickly. Over time your body just compensates for it and you won't even notice. Put two people on you'll really feel it until your over 30MPH.

    The faster you go the better it becomes. Yep i had my friend behind me thats when i really felt it. as soon as he got off it was much better. So less then 10 hours for the break in is okay??

    The 10 hour break in is to break you in

    45 sec on salt away right after your done riding, rinse inside/outside of ski, spray every thing metal with seadoo lube and your ski will last along time even in salt water .

    Many owners found at about 5-7 hours the ECU opens up completely.

    Www.brpmanuals.com for a shop manual

    read your owners manual to use iBr override, raise the gate, use 10mm socket and wrench to adjust steering knuckle on the steering nozzle. Very easy to adjust.

    welcome to the hulk!
