    Well my plan tomorrow was to launch the RXT in fresh water early.
    With approximately a 2 to 3 minute transit through the no wake perform a series of incremental speed excursions, 15, 25, 35. I figure do this for about an hour and all the while listening to the ski and getting a feel for it.

    After ready that web page its got me thinking.

    I believe the seals are the most important thing here. You have approximately 40min to seat them correctly. Vary your RPM, never let them stay constant. Do short full throttle bursts. Start out for like 1 second, then 3 seconds, then 5 second bursts. Keep carying those RPM, this cannot be stressed enough. After the first 2 hours of ride time, ride it like you stole it. Your ski will keep loosening up and you will see your best RPM and speeds after about 10 hours of ride time.

    MANY people on here follow that web page.

    dude, just go in and out of turns and accelerate through the rpm range every chance you get.
    seriously

    I said don't keep them constant. By varying your RPM only every 5 or 10 min you are keeping them constant more than you are varying them.....not good. Don't keep the same RPM for more than a few seconds. I agree with Fizzle, but at the same time don't do too many really hard turns and hammer the throttle because you will put a lot of stress on a new engine.

    Best thing you can do is thoroughly read that site I posted and follow it.
