    Purchasing RXP-X today.

    I have done a thread seach and cannot find the stuff I remember seeing before on how to properly break in the ski? Also wasn't there something before on you were suppose to drill a hole somewhere to prevent bucking? Anything else I should know to help break the ski in? Like I said I know this has all been answered before, so even if you could lead me to the link that would be great. Thanks!

    Well, there are no holes to drill to keep the pump tunnel from cracking. You might ask the dealer what they will do if the tunnel cracks... Ron

    +2, run it like your going to ride it for the next 4 years.....HARD. For me that was 4 years ago and 260 hours of extra hard use!

    Might want to get a couple of early oil changes, at 8 hours I pulled my oil filter apart, some fresh metal shavings on the first couple of oil changes, after that clean. Change oil very often ,screw the recommended changes, I double/tripled my change intervals.

    Thanks for all the responses. Here is EXACTLY what the dealer told me.."Take it very very easy for 10-20hrs..no hard launches or high rpms"...Now this was coming from the guy who didn't know where the fire extinguiser was located..I don't know what we would do if we didn't have forums like greenhulk. Now here is my other question that of coarse the dealer could not answer. Do you need to pinch a hose if towing in water? If so which one? BTW...I already through the learner key away and will be ordering a TON of stuff in the next week after I take it back to the dealer for the 10hr service for my warrenty.

    Welcome to the forum. Where in Southern Ontario are you from? And yes, you are correct... just don't use the ski at WOT for long periods of time.

    You can have the learner key reprogrammed as a standard key.
