    new to the board

    wanted to say hello, new here to the board , my brother and i bought a pair of 07 rxt's and are really impressed with the performance of them.. awesome power and handling. we now have just over 10 hours and were wondering about the service and should we have the dealer do it to satisfy any warr. issues in the future?? i service all my own trucks, and bikes and boats so experience is not a problem, just need to learn the procedure for the sea-doo.. we are in jax. florida , thanks for your help

    1st welcome to the forum. second CHANGE THOSE CERAMIC WASHERS IN THE CLUTCH!!!!!!!

    you sound mechanical, do the 10hr and everything yourself, no sense in paying 150+ for an oil change. read everything in the how-to section and search for "10 hour service" or "10hr service"

    Read this about our clutches and their problems....http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthre...clutch+failure **edit, oops link already posted

    Washers are a must...bearings are good but not a must...word is 2008 superchargers will have the metal washers, just like the ones you are about to order for your ski...$100 or $4000 (new engine), not much of a choice!!!!

    Welcome!

    I just did the metals on my RXP. You can get them from the online store (see link on left side of the page).

    Damn-it, a lot of people have beat me to the punch, but here goes

    WARNING, IF CERAMIC SC WASHERS ARE NOT REPLACED YOU WILL BE OUT OF SKI WITHIN 15 HRS GUARANTEE. If your new 07 RXP/RXT has more than 15 hrs and are capable of engine rpms of 7,800 - 8,100, you are lucky so far, but in the near future the washers will fail and you will be out of ski for the rest of the season.

    By spending only a $150 (washers & labor) now, depending if you ski is turning 7,800-8,100 rpms, you will have a very reliable ski.
