Tips needed for de-winterization
I purchased a 04 RXP that was winterized, what do you guys recommend to do before taking them out on the water the first time? Plugs, oil, new gas? Any help is appreciated!!

This spring I (in order)charged the battery, hooked the battery up, started on the trailer, run on hose for 1 min., changed the oil, run on hose for 1 min. checked oil, went to lake, run around on lake for awhile, put in fresh gas and spark plugs, good to go-test mods, do more mods, ect.

Before You Ride Your Rxp
Change the Engine Oil and engine Filter get K&N ones from Jerry and if your RXP got more than 90 hours change the clutch washers get the Metal Clutch washer and ceramic bearings for the supercharge… Change the spark plug and flush the intercooler with fresh water charged the battery, started on the trailer run for 1 min. drain old gas and put a fresh high octane 92+ gas. Spray the throttle wire and and the moving parts in the bump with W-40 or seadoo lope.
AND YOU ARE GOOD TO GO

Awesome, what oil, and plugs are recommended, and at what gap? It only has 35 hours on it.

I used OEM plugs-NGK- The part number can be found on the plug itself or there should be a sticker on the ski under the seat somewhere-I'm not to sure where it is on the RXP, I know where it is on a RXT, the sticker will have part number and gap spec.
For oil it is a personal preference-needs to be wet clutch compatible-will say on back of bottle. I am using AMS 10w40 synthetic. A buddy of mine is using the OEM BRP stuff.
