Break in period
Hey guys I just picked up a left over 2014 GTI limited 155 brand new and for the break in period I was told no more than 1/2 throttle for the first 10 hrs and vary the rpms. Is this true? I've used the ski once already doing as I was told but I just want to open it up and throw it around. Any info?

I like the old time method, couple of good heat cycles, then let it rip, oils have gotten tons better from way back when... The need to break in engines is far from being what it used to be. Now that being said, I wouldn't take a brand new ski and hold it 100% for hrs at a time. I would be a little gental

WFO the second it's off the trailer.
I break it in through wake zones. I have two good ones where I'll run 1/2 throttle for about 2 minutes between them. First one is about a minute ride, 2 minute half throttle, then another 10 minute wake zone. change my oil filter and 1qt of oil then WFO. That's just my religious ceremony.

the KEY to RING SET because that's what all this a is about anyway is the COOLING ALLOWED between the first two or three heat cycles..............PERIOD!!!!!!!

Lmao I love the part in the manual about long durations of full throttle will cause over hearing..... Wtf is the difference between 1hr and 20hrs.... Motor will run the same temp
