    10 hr service question

    ok so basically all it is an oil change, and inspection of hoses. MY question is If I do the change myself is it going to impact my warrenty in that seadoo will have no idea that the 10hr service was done since it wont be on record?? I really dont want to take it to the dealer, its far its 160 bucks for the service, and I dont want to wait when I can do all this myself...

    also at 10 hrs does a maintnece light or something come on that the dealer has to clear?? I"m at 9hrs right now.

    I do not recall the maintenance message appearing on my RXP, like it did for all my previous machines. In the past it would appear for a few hours and then clear without the need for the dealer to clear.
    I would think your warranty should still be valid if you do the 10hr yourself, as it is badly overpriced for what they do. However I do not know for sure.

    Your warrenty will not be voided if you do the oil change yourself. As for the maint message. It will come on somewhere in the 10 hour time frame. When it does you will need the dealer to reset it.

    I have a 06 RXP and my wife has an 05 RXT with about 16 hours on both of them,I had the service done at 11 hours and never saw a light.
    the service was 150.00 dollars each and they even gave me the left over spray lube and a half quart of oil(big deal).I manage a Harley Davidson dealer in florida and the only thing harley says about the customer doing the services is to use good oil and parts and to save the receits,I think Sea-Doo would do the same

    There are 3 O-rings to do it right:
    1 on the Bolt, and 2 on the cap, at least change the 1 on the bolt and the thicker of the 2 o-rings if you don`t get all 3.

    I usually buy a few complete set-ups, so there is no surprises.
    When our machine was new in 2004, I had no maint light. But I`m hearing that since I have installed an off the shelf 2005 ecu, that the light will come on at around 10 hours, I`ll have to wait and see, 3.9 more hours to go...PR...

    I would just to the dealer ad have them do it. Im sure they will check out everything and make sure it is all running right. Its not like u spent 5 grand on a waverunner. I would just spend the 160 and know it is done right. Also know a certified tech worked on it and made sure of no metal shavings and what not. Plus its good to get to know ur dealer in case there s a problem in the future.
