    Ordered a 2022 black GTX

    This past August I put a down payment on a new GTX 300.
    I expect to receive the ski around the end of March.
    I've been thinking about summer riding sense there is no snow to snowmobile ride, yet.
    Is there anything I should/could do when I go to pick it up? I'm getting a new one up trailer with it.
    Anything to look out for?
    Any good ideas?
    I see there may be a need for a catch can.

    My recommendations:

    1. Ask if it comes with 2 keys.
    2. Give it a thorough inspection to ensure there was no damage in shipping.
    3. Inspect bunk placement to ensure the ski sits properly on the trailer.
    4. Check every hose clamp.

    Thanks, that's excellent advice.
    Any thoughts on extended warranty?
    Is there any room under the seat to work on it?

    Depending on the price, an extended warranty could be worth the money. Most "major" work is gonna cost well above $500.

    I do my own oil changes, and simple stuff, but I leave the pump rebuilds, etc. up to the pros.

    I don't have direct experience with that ski, but no matter the make/model, they're all cramped and hard to work on.

    they only come with one key, so be sure to get an extra one, and yes check all the hoses, two coolant lines were loose at the tstat housing on my 21 tx and friends 21 gtr,

    Good advice from everyone. I've had 2 hoses blow off my 19 RXT. The top intake hose blew off (easy peasy) and then the coolant overflow to water pump hose waaaay down underneath everything (not so easy).

    Great reminder to check all the hoses and snug all the hose clamps. I also rinse/clean the hull out before riding. There has been lots of dust in my last 3 new skis.

    LOL your right there. First time sinking water craft too.
    So there is no mention of adding the catch can as soon as you get the ski.
