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

Thanks guys , i knew those few things to do , i always change plugs and change the oil thats a no brainer, but for some reason i remember i think Jerry saying after like 50hr or something like that our valves losen up and we need to put shims in them or something along those lines can someone chime in on this!

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
