    Flushing

    Ive only used my new RXT a couple times. Im always using it in saltwater, so I always flush it. The manual says to flush at a "high idle" 4000-5000 rpm for 20 seconds. I turn the ski on, then the water. When its just idling it sounds fine, but once I rev it to around 4000, it starts making a really ugly, raspy sound. It sounds like im hurting it, so im hesitant to keep it there for long. But the manual says to? Im just wondering if it would be adequate to just let it idle for a couple minutes.....

    Yeah it tends to make like somethings is loose. have no fears.

    I flush mine running idel for a minute or 2.

    After I shut off the water I give it a quick throttle up. Then shut it down.

    What you are hearing is normal. Just never run it without water going through it. Yes, I let mine idle on the water for 2 minutes then shut the water off, throttle it twice to blow water out and shut it off.
    Also, since you are running in salt water like me check out threads about 'Salt
    Away'. You use it to flush the ski and leave it in the ski to neutralize any salt in the intercooler, manifold and exhaust. Good stuff.
