Interesting...ive always subscribed to that theory of logic, but its nice to hear someone else preach it and ready the science behind it...Break-in procedure: Run it hard as described in link below.
Anyone have knowledge or experience on this topic.
Break In Secrets--How To Break In New Motorcycle and Car Engines For More Power
I have been running my hard (after normal operating temps are reached) and planning on changing my oil right at 5 hours...Reading the link it probably ought to be normally run after a few minute warm up with varying speed.What about the first oil change. The manual seems to indicate 50 hours. The link says 20 miles on a road vehicle. That's immediately.
I bought my Spark yesterday and the dealership told me I had to have the first servicing after the 10 hour break in period. $200 for the service and another $150 to have the ski picked up at the marina and then brought back since they have to take the whole top off and cant just do the work there at the marina. Someone else told me from another forum that its 5 hrs break in time and i dont need my first service until 50hrs. also they dont mean you have to be on the thing 5 hrs straight right? sorry about stupid questions but this is my first PWC. im calling seadoo to clarify but what do you guys think. i paid the service and pick up delivery already with the cost of the ski so i dont have to pay later but if i can wait longer to get it serviced im all for it. my dealer said to break it in by running it at mid speed but okay to open it up a few times. i could wait until i get the manual but want to hear from you guys and good question about the oil change, i heard its easy, reminder : to keep warranty valid you have to use seadoo parts so get a seadoo filter if you are doing a DIY oil change
