    It is highly recommended that you DO NOT use the learning key for break in.

    Proper break in requires the engine to be run thru all the RPM ranges and not hold any RPM for too long a period.

    You only have a short window of opportunity to seat the rings in properly and you do that by doing some short bursts of 3/4 throttle..... or if you are me WOT but only after the ski has warmed up properly.

    Okay, I see. Well, with my gtx I used the Learner's Key and varied the RPMs because someone told me not to stay in the same range. So why would Seadoo tell its owners to use it or rather use the Learners Key?..Is it because they assume or do not want customers to overheat their skis? And some other post mentioned time-ing, so using a LKey can lead to problems or no?
    Thanks for your time...

    I will say this about break in on my GTXL. At about 4 hours I gave mine a WOT test to get GPS on it. By my lonesome I was making 60.1 GPS, 63 Dream-o, and 7600 rpms. 8 hours later on the ski, no GPS but me and the wife hot 69 on the Dream-o and 7800 +rpms.

    So there was a performance difference for me between broken in and not.
