    Truth or Farse??????

    Is it true there is a 10hr break in before the computer lets the engine full open up?? (ive heard this about ski-doo snowmobiles also)

    Ive got about 8hrs on my boat and rpms still wont excede 7800rpms..

    My dealer hasnt heard anything about this contraversy..

    Ive been told this something similar to this also. The version I was told for a 07 SeaDoo boat was that is when you bring it back to the dealer for the 10hr check that they hook it upto the BUDS system and change it from break-in operation to normal operation. Last year when I purchased a 06 RXT I was told the computer in the ski changes operation mode once it hits 10hrs.

    I know nothing of the watercraft, but Bombardier officials eventually did confirm this to be true about the snowmobiles.

    My performance/RPMs didn't change after the 10hr service. For me, it was like I heard, more of an automatic gradual improvement. I understood that the engine timing starts with six degrees retarded timing and +5% fuel flow, then slowly moves into spec. Between 5 -7 hours, your engine should be done with that. With the stock intake, stock prop, and 80F, I was only turning 7800. You know what you have to do.

    I don't think so. My RXT ran 8150 RPM right out of the box @ 66.7 mph.

    The 150 is 500lbs heavier than an RXT with much more hull in the water producing drag; makes the difference. I wish we weighed what an RXT weighed.

    Heard the rumor on the 06's also

    I never saw a change at 10 hours and have not heard of hard evedence to support the rumor. I do see 200 RPM difference depending on passenger load and ambient temp.
