    Holding RPMs (6500) for about 10min

    Hey,
    Quick question. My new 06 GP1300R has 6 hrs on it. I have read that max rpm is a little over 7000. My question to all you that know the mechanics of this machine is this. If i hold the ski at 6000-6500 for several miles, will this hurt my ski. I was not holding it wide open, but close for several miles, being 10min or so. Would this affect the ski? No hot warnings or anything, but just checking, cause i will be doing alot of open water riding in the next couple of wks and im going to have to keep the RPMS up to stay with my buddys. Thanks all..

    IMHO...the ski is broken in. But for future reference, upon breakin, you want to fluctuate the RPMs and not keep them at a certain RPM for a prolong period of time. This helps to seat the rings on the pistons. Good luck and RIDE on.

    Would you say before i did this, with 5hrs on it, that the ski was not brokken in? I did follow the break in procedures of 1 tank of mixed gas and varying the throttle intailed by the manual and by the SBT website. I just figured with 4 hrs on it, that i would most likely of already been broken in. I hope i have not jeapordized the longivety of my ski now. What do you think? Thanks for the inputs.

    More likely than not, it's broken in just fine. Kudos for you for actualy reading and following the manual. If you only ran it 10 mins at that range, I doubt you caused any problems. If you are still worried, burn one more tank of mixed gas and vary the throttle some more before riding with your buddies.

    Go forth and enjoy your ski, my son... and welcome to the forum!

    Ok, one more thing. Riding a ski, that is not modded, will it hurt to hold it wide open for a period of time or is the rev limiter keeping it at an operating range that will not let it self destruct.

    I agree, a stock ski that has been properly broken in will run till the cows come home. I do believe that Yamaha anticipated that 80% of the owners would run the dogshit out of them (in stock form of course), so therefore they prepared the boats to handle it.

    If not, then the first year warranty claims would put them out of the watercraft business.

    Just like WFO said--ride like you stole it.
