    you dont have to do shit
    you can run the SC until it explodes
    they are just recommendations
    a few facts.... the SC spins at about 48000 rpm
    it has tiny bearings that are not really rated for that high of rpm
    last if the SC fails it will be a very expensive repair bill
    and it may destroy the motor
    sure BRP now says the SC is good to 200 hours
    but still uses the same parts that they used to say needed a rebuild at 100hours
    remember the higher you spin the motor the faster the tiny SC bearings spin

    On my '12 GTX 215 the SC was rebuilt at 225 hrs. My mechanic said old parts were still in good shape, no visible wear. No mods on the ski, didn't beat the crap out of it, lots of two up cruising. I would consider rebuild sooner on a modded and ridden hard ski.......

    I would change the oil & plugs, lube any moving parts ( throttle body, steering, reverse gate etc, with Seadoo Lube ) and pull the SC and have it rebuilt.

    I have some friends with 300h on theire 215hp and they never rebuild theire sc, but i think its not à good idea, my dealer say to me to rebuild it à 100h (i have a 260 rxpx)
    You have to know that the sc need to be rebuild every 2 years (brp said this)

    Friction sleeves on the IBR are recommended at 100 hrs. While IBR is out might as well pull pump cover and inspect bearing for contamination, add grease, could pull pump and change wear ring if not done recently....
