    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?

    The attachment is right out of the Owners Manual. You got it partially correct.

    Let her rip.

    Personally I like the wake zone method. As soon as your out of the wake zone pin it.

    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.

    So I should wait until 10 hrs? I live on Long Island so it's still pretty cold and I'm trying to rack up the hours asap. Still haven't broke an hour on the display.
