    new ski checklist

    I finally get to pick up my p-x from the dealer tomorrow. Im assuming it was one of the early runs as it has been at the dealer since Jan.

    What are some things I should be looking for before I drive off with it. This is my first ski so any insight is appreciated

    same situation here.... got my wetsuit and ready for this weekend but what he wants to know (i think) is if there are any problems like the hosing for example or something he needs to look out for or fix before he rides...

    Do not start it in water shallower than knee deep step up on the back and push off the bottom and get it to deeper water to start so you do not suck anything up in the pump. Use yellow key for breaking my personal choice. make sure you buy 93 octane gas no 87 try not to buy hess or bp they use ethonal mix again my choice

    +1 and do not gun it in reverse when loading on or off the trailer to back up or to stop when loading, unless you are positive that you are loading on concrete and there is zero rocks under you.
    Trust me, been there, done that.

    got off topic but is still good advice for once you have driven off with it and ready to launch.

    Awesome and early congrats! Definitely check the hoses to make sure they are tight and might be a good idea to bring a tow rope and something to clamp off the hose during towing worse case scenario.

    I had a dream that I was breaking in my ski and I think this came after the topic about the learning key. So I look down and I see that the RPMs are about 10,500 but instead of being on a PWC I was on a street bike...crazy dream but I think that might be a sign that I'm supposed to gun it at least once or maybe twice after making sure it's fully warmed up - say after 15 minutes and not to stay at high RPM but for only a short duration.

    When are you going to Florida and where? I frequent the Ft Myers area. Might take the new RXT-X down there.....
