08 RXTX ECU holds back until certain hours?
Do I remember reading somewhere that the ECU on the 08 RXT X is designed to hold back until certain hours are reached on the ski?
Have just under 2 hours on mine, breaking in as per Jerry, and am wodering if mine will open up more. Right now feels alot like my 07 RXT.
Thanks for the info. everyone!!

Yeah the ECU holds the engine back for the first few hours and slowly opens up. You'll feel it really start to open up around five hours and it will continue to open up a little farther right beyound 10. I'd say 5 is the most dramatic though.

I don't think anyone actually KNOWS if the ECU holds back for 10 hours or not....highly suspected, but I don't think anyone has actually presented credible evidence to the contrary.
I could be (VERY) wrong, but I think it's just an internet rumor.

I havn't noticed as big of a difference since then and she shows 11 hours and should be close 12 hours. I also started jacking with the prop to get to 8,100 rpm and as it turns out I was tuning it out of its max power range.
I will say every time i get on the ski it has impressed me more and more.

People were saying this about the ecu when I got my 05, but I didn't notice anything. I think it is just the motor working in and loosening up.
But I really wish someone with some contacts would get an answer straight from the horses mouth

I think it is just a rumor, I got 8100 RPM's on my RXP-X within the first hour.

I think Shibbby posted once that it was true.
It backed timing out until you hit 10 hours?
Maybe he will chime in?
