    Picking up my 250Xs tomorrow!

    Whoo hooo - picking up my new '08 250Xs tomorrow. Both lime green/white, Rolls Axle aluminum trailer, covers, 4 life jackets, etc. Very, very excited.

    Tommorrow night I'll be de-stickering them both and take them out on Saturday. Whats the BEST break in for a these Skiis? I want to get the best reliability and performance out of them even if that entails a break in routine - same day oil change - then riding.

    Thanks in advance and will have pics by the end of the weekend!

    That is definately how Im breaking mine in. So since it wasn't Ski specific..

    30min-1HR of 20% hard on, 40% on, 60% on, 100% on and hard decels after proper warm up followed by a heavy weight oil change?

    How much oil do these things take again and will 10W40 Be ok (non synthetic)?

    Thanks again for the help.

    30min-is more like total time of 20% hard on, 40% on, 60% on, 100% on and hard decels after proper warm up followed by a heavy weight oil change?

    30-45min is your total time you will be running it in with ?
    hope So

    3.85qt , also buy your self a oil extractor (heaps easier to change oil)

    also see Skipps site +100

    Well here they are. We took them out and broke them in tonight (25 min). Doing an oil change/de-stickering them in the AM. Very fun Ski - and damn theyre quick.
