First ride coming this weekend
My first ride of the season will be this weekend. Last night I was up until 10:00 p.m washing the skis to prep them for riding. I have to get some spark plugs for the GTX, and after that its all riding from there. Hopefully I can crack 65 mph on it this season, the new engine is broke in and was gainging RPM's at the end of last year, this year with fresh plugs I expect 65 or higher. Last years high was 63.1 mph. Just thought I'd share!

the first ride is always the most fun. I am ready to start modding mine so I can have a 2nd and 3rd first ride

Money is too tight for me to start modding the RXP, plus my dad won't allow it. He's still pondering wether or not to let me get the washer upgrade. The GTX is a bit modded, its my sentimental favorite, but the RXP is loads of fun as well...

05-11-2007, 12:12 PM #5just show your dad all the horror stories on this site about people who had ceramic washer failures and he will be begging you to have metal ones put in
1. Don't use Synthetic oil
2. Get Metal Washers.
Until I started coming on this site, I just put it behind me. After countless hours reading about washer failures and the damage it could do- it just wasn't worth the hassle, not to mention the time to repair it.
So, because of this site, I got the washers installed and now I'm looking forward to a great season.

800AMSOIL4U is right, synthetic is fine as long as there are no friction modifiers.
Metal washers are a necessity!

Kevin should i be worried about havving the 0w-40 in there instead of the 10w-40 ? You used to post both but now just the 10w-40, for my next order ill be getting the 10w-40.
