Seadoo RXP-X 260 – 100 hours of Perfection
Turned 100 hours on my 2014 RXP-X today.
I was happy to have it happen at wide open throttle, racing some hot chicks on Yamaha SHO skis and I smoked them!
Anything ever go wrong mechanically with the ski?
No mechanical issues ever. Zip. Nada. Still has the original supercharger, pump bearings, hoses and all other mechanical parts. This is still on stock intercooler! No Leaks at all! The ski has started every time without fail. The title says it all; 100 hours of perfection.
What type of modifications?
Added the Fizzle 4 inch Air Intake Kit, Fizzle Catch Can(Failed), Replaced with Riva Catch Can! Also, it has RD Grate, Riva Rear Thru-hull Exhaust with stock waterbox! The T3's did pretty amazing in the chop. Still on Stock ECU with all limiters!
How fast is it?
As fast as you want. At 1503 cc the RXPX's have the best Rotax engines in the industry and I could easily make it go a LOT faster. To be honest, 68-70 range is plenty fast for me now and I can barely hang on as it is.
What do we do to maintain the ski?
Someone asked me what type of “post ride maintenance” I do. I told him that I flush the ski with garden hose, rinse them off, wipe them down, wax it and put them in the garage. Outside of a couple of scheduled maintenance trips to the dealer! I have been changing the oil, oil filter, and spark plugs every 25 hrs. I use BRP Oil Change Kit from dealer! The ski has been run almost exclusively on Shell V-Power 93 Octane fuel, for whatever that's worth. Not that I prefer it or anything, but it just happens that we have a Shell station a few minutes from the condo. I just did slip test on my supercharger and its shows 92 inch lbs which is still good and have a good amount of life before it fails!
Not really. I'm solidly backed by free 4 year BRP B.E.S.T warranty. I really can't complain at all.
Is the RXP-X a good ski for you?
It could be. The Sea-doo RXP-X 260 is not a cadillac, or a cream puff ride, it’s a badass Lamborghini ski. It does have all the bells and whistles, like brakes and computer “sport modes,” etc. I love it! iBR is the best feature on this machine! For me it's been a great value; a very fast supercharged ski; low maintenance with amazing durability, and that's what I like about it.

at the end of the season send jerry your SC for a rebuild and youll be good for another 100+
sure you can gamble on it making it to 200 and if it doesn't and it blows
even with a warrantee it will be down for weeks at best

I'm a big believer of solid maintence, beyond the sevice recommendations. A small price to pay to keep the engine 100%. I also believe in riding it like to stole it but loving it like a spoilt child. Works for me with cars, skis, tools anything really - wife!?!?
Of course things can and do break, but prevention is always better and cheaper than the cure.

Good to hear yours is holding up.
Do you know what the typical slip numbers are on a factory fresh S/C?
