    10 hour service, does it void warranty if I do myself?

    I plan to do all my own oil changes, what else is needed for the 10 hour service? Lube the steering/reverse bucket gears/cables, Check all hose clamps, Anything else? Just trying to be prepared for when the time comes.

    Is there a specific pwc oil extractor or will any one work?

    There is a maintence interval checklist in the manual. It won't void your warranty doing your own maintenance unless you screw something up which is pretty hard to do until you get to the valve train adjustments at 200 hrs.

    Keep details (receipts (that you bought oil, filters), date, hours) of your oil changes so you can prove that you have done them just in case.

    the intermediate shaft correct?

    in order to grease mine i had to take the shaft on the grease gun and spin it sideways so that i could get on the fitting... but i did just today buy a flexible whip hose to make life easier next time.

    and it's somewhat tough to do, but i did remove the hose from the lower end that actually is down where it bearing is, and pumped the grease gun until i had grease come out of the hose, i then reattached the hose and pumped it 3 times... that hose is completely empty.


    i did my own 10 hour service as well... couldnt justify the $250 my dealer wanted... esp since i'm more than capable to do it myself. just make sure you buy oil and filters that are approved for your engine and keep the receipts.

    it seems like my dealer must have done it during prep, cuase the hose was full. but yeah, talk about a bad place to put it, so much easier on my other skis
