    New 300 rxpx- few questions

    The dealer said no need to break the engine in. I know the engine is held back for the first few hours but do we need to do anything else?

    Lastly, it shows Boost on the gauge but not displaying anything. Is that something i need to add or am i missing this in the settings?

    It's just a bar gauge. It will light up when your in the water under heavy throttle. Also after break in when it allows you to get to 8000 rpms it will have more boost then during the break in.

    If you want to read a actual boost Psi number on the dash you need a DashPac for that.

    I personally still think it's important to heat cycle the engine and adhere to the break in procedure listed in your owners manual.

    Ok after 3 hrs on the ski the boost finally displayed. We varied the throttle all day and never went wot for more than a few seconds.

    Yeah after 3 hours it opens up some and allows more rpm. More rpm = more boost!

    I am at 4 hours at the moment and the thing hauls when I do short bursts of WOT. Are you telling me it opens up even more at 5 hours?!

    Im with Hamad on this, I think they do this to more to keep new riders from killing themselves the first time they get on a 300hp machine than can do 0-t0 in 4 seconds.
