    2014 rxt-x 260

    I'm going to start this thread to list all of my questions, instead of making one after another.

    I'm still breaking in my engine, currently at 3 hours and this thing is a fu*ken beast! I can't help my self but to do WOT. I can't imagine what its going to be like at 10 hours.. it's amazing the difference between sport mode and touring!

    Question

    Should I do a 10 hour oil change? I have read that some people do one after the break in.

    Congrats on the ski. BRP changed their service timer on oil from 10 hours to what ever it is now a few years ago. They also changed the SC service from 100 to 200 hours (bad idea).

    If you feel it is a good idea and would feel better changing it at 10 hours go for it. Just save your self a LOT of money a do it yourself. All you need is 4 qts of oil and the filter. You will only remove and replace around 3.3 qts.

    And BTW, you CAN and SHOULD run it WOT for a few seconds at a time, read your Owners Manual again carefully as it should say something similar to this.

    It seems as my steering alignment is a bit off, is this common for a new ski?

    I slightly noticed it riding by myself, but with a passenger it's much more noticeable. In order for it to be straight, the handlebars need to be slightly more to the left.

    Any ideas?

    Raise the iBr gate per the Owners Manual iBr Override procedure. You need to know how to do this on the water to check for debris, etc.

    Remove bolt #5 from the steering nozzle, turn the turnbuckle #23 2 turns. Re-install, check handlebar alignment, go test. Repeat as necessary.

    Another way is:

    Use the alignment nut under the steering column.

    Try it the first time with the ski on the trailer.

    Once in the water leave the storage box out and make the fine adjustments when making a few runs.

    Don't forget to thighten the bolts evertytime !!

    Enjoy your new ski, even stock you will have lots of fun with it !!


    Btw take that advice from jpt7779 and buy that damn shopmanual . It's only a few bucks and gives you tons of info !!

    I was out riding yesterday, and I heard a beep. About 10-15 mins later I heard the beep again. The ski is at 9 hours. I checked the manual and it shows it could be the following 1) watercraft upside down. 2) Engine management system fault. 3) iBR fault.

    I'd get rid of 1 and 3 as it wasn't upside down and the iBR was working fine. The ski seemed to also be running fine as well.

    Do these skis get tricked if your jumping some waves and water is getting all over it, and making it think it was "upside down"

    Thanks!

    If there is a fault it should show on the display. I don't think I've ever had a beep without a corresponding message on the information display. Try going through the menu, I believe the last option is fault codes (will only show up if there is an active fault). If you can get a code from that menu, record it and follow up with what might be causing it.

    My dealer told me I needed to do 10 hours with the learners key varying rpms and throttle before using the regular key...so far I have 3 hours logged like this...is that right?

    Your dealer is flat out wrong.

    Use your regular key. Vary RPM's with some burst of full throttle. You'll notice right around 5 hours the ski will really wake up.

    By 5 hours the reality is your motor is broking in.
