    I would make sure you put fresh oil ( BRP oil only ) and make sure it is only 10w-40...you DO NOT want the synthetic oil in an RXP. Put a fresh oil filter in, new plugs and a fresh coat of "look at me" wax!!!!! LOL

    Make sure you have replaced the ceramic washers in the S/C!!!

    There is grease in the nose cone in the pump assembly but I have been told it doesn't need to changed until you are over 100hrs, I changed mine a few weeks ago ( 120hrs).
    From what I have read on this site there is no need to worry about the valve train until you put a Rude Charger on the machine and start swapping ECU'S etc, and generally get into the higher end of the performance scale.
    I have done nothing or had any valve train issues with my machine.

    Good luck!!!
    If you ever riding in the Trent Severn or Peterborough area PM me and let me know, some unbelievable riding around here.

    Sounds crazy, but even though these are 4 stroke machines, it is always best to change them in the spring. I can't count the times I let this go on all my friends skis only to have them limp around the corner on their yearly maiden voyage. I've received many a phone call from disgruntled friends saying, "What's up, I thought you just serviced this thing". Now I replace every plug, every spring, on every ski

    BTW, it is usually #1 that fails first... almost every time

    You can use synthetic oil in the ski. Here is the AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Oil and how it compared to Sea-Doo Synthetic and Petroleum Oil. http://www.amsoil.com/redirect.cgi?zo=367509&page=storefront/wcf
