Hey guys, its wilde here from the land down under. i picked up my new RXP-X about 5 days ago, it is un friggin beliveable, i am so impressed i can not stay of the thing. I have pics but i have lost my USB cord so i cant get them on at the moment. Guys i have a problem and i hope you guys can help - i now have 11 hours on my ski, i went to take it in this morning for its 10 hour service and they are telling me that they can not service it until tuesday next week, that is over a week away. How far over can i go on the hours until it gets serviced? this weekend is the easter long weekend and i have a lot of plans with my new baby. Can you go to 20 hours or should i not ride it at all???????

It would be a good idea to have it serviced at 10 hrs but if you can't do it, get it in when you can. Mainly it's to check over the doo and change the oil and filters. I have seen peopls go over the 10 hrs with out any problems.

Hey there Wilde. Hope the rxpx is going well for you!
Have you thought of seeing if another dealer could service it for you?
I'm guessing they'l all be pretty busy this time of year but you never know.

With this being brand new, the 10 hour service is not a request, I believe to keep your warranty valid, I'd take it in now.
Imagine you take it in at say, 22 hours, they service it, then at 32 hours, it blows up. I can tell you, the first thing the dealer is going to do is try to find you at fault for not bringing it in when the 10 service requirement was due. When you have a warranty, you have to dot your i's and cross your t's, or they will find some reason to not do your work, or hold you responsible.
I know your having fun, but a week really isn't a long wait time. Here in the U.S., a repair shop had my 35 hp Evinrude for over a month!......
Take it in for service, unless there is a clause that says, "service it between 10 to 20 hours of use".

Would doing the oil/ filter change yourself create any problems with a warranty claim down the road? If you had receipts/ hour meter photos in your file, I can't see how SeaDoo could claim you didn't service the boat properly
Any opinion/ experiences?

That's a good question but I'm afraid only one that could be answered by a dealer. The reason is, that they do more on their service than just change the oil. They inspect certain wear parts for abnormal wear and the like. So its not just abou the oil......:cheers:
