    New RXP-X Owner

    Well I bit the bullet and bought a brand new 08 RXP-X. Anyone with any advice please let me know. 4 years ago I bought a used Polaris MSX140 and I've spent more money fixing that I paid for it. The dude I bought in from saw me coming!!!
    So, that's why I bought new this time!!

    Thanks for any advice!

    Congratulations on your new ride and welcome to greenhulk. Just break it in by the book and don't use the training key cause it supposedly cuts ignition to one cylinder to limit rpm. Try to limit the habit of snapping the throttle shut when slowing. Just ease out of it and this will decrease wear on the clutch washers. You might consider putting in Riva clutch washers at 40-50 hours of operation. Staying in the throttle when the pump comes unhooked is also a no-no, try to feather it when airborne. Have fun and let us know how you like it.

    Wow!!!!

    I would consider myself a novice skier and all I can say is wow about this thing. We put 2 hrs. on it yesterday breaking it in nothing over 5k RPM's. This thing is smooth as silk compared to the MSX140. Dealer told me after 2 hrs I could bury it in short bursts up to about 4 hrs. then give it hell after that. Right now I'm happy.
    Trim the nozzle up and this thing will jump out of the water on take off!! Unbelievable!
