    Sea Doo RXT-X breakin and updates

    Is there a thread somewhere on how to properly break in a new Sea-Doo.
    I did a search on breakin and found nothing.
    I also seached through the topics in the FAQ section.
    I am probably going to purchase a new non current 2008 RXT-X this weekend and want to know how to properly break it in and if I should have any updates or things done to it at the dealer before I pick it up.
    I would also like to know what kind of oil to run in it during and after breakin.

    Thanks for you help.

    the owner's manual tells you to vary RPM's and no WFO throttle runs... i varied RPMs and did short wide open bursts after a few hours

    I run the Seadoo oil from the 4tec store...lots of people run amsoil...and i've even heard of Castrol... I'll run BRP oil until the warranty is up. just be careful i've heard of some oils being to "slick" therefore causing the SC clutch to slip
