When the world wants to win, the world rides Sea-Doo watercraft. 

All of these riders will have an almost unfair advantage by riding the new Sea-Doo RXP-X watercraft.

The 2014 Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 model is the ideal watercraft for closed course racers and performance enthusiasts. It continues to build its performance legacy with a new Viper Red color, ominous visual appeal, ingenious hull design and ergonomics that allow riders to realize 100% of their riding potential. The T3 hull design allows the RXP-X 260 model to aggressively lean into corners and penetrate chop better than any of its two-seater counterparts. T3 stands for “tight-turning t-hull” and uses an advanced, dual surface hull design with a unique combination of soft and hard chines, dual axis adjustable rear sponsons and performance trim tabs. This allows the rider to lean further into corners, turning tighter and faster, leaving the competition’s two-seaters in its wake.

The revolutionary Ergolock system integrates a narrowing, body-molded racing seat, Adjustable Ergonomic Steering (A.E.S.) system and angled footwell wedges, all complementing the lean-in characteristics. With the A.E.S. system, the rider can adjust the handlebar width and grip angle for a perfect upper body connection. The unique RXP-X 260 seat form-fits the rider’s legs, alleviating upper body strain in hard turns, using the leg muscles to lock the rider into the machine, and ultimately the water, better than any other two-seater.

BRP’s Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR) and Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) systems complete the picture and make the 2014 RXP-X 260 the most feature- and technology-rich two-seater in high-performance watercraft history.

The 2014 Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty racer contingency program will be announced in the coming weeks with bigger payouts and bonuses.

HOW TO: Winterizing your Sea-Doo Watercraft

| Seadoo | November 26, 2013

Sea-Doo RXT-X 260Sea-Doo owners who live in the northern climates are ready to send their watercraft into hibernation for the winter, not to be heard from again until the first blooms of spring arrive. Winterizing is a critical maintenance function to ensure your prized Sea-Doo watercraft will be ready to go spring rolls around.

Even Sea-Doo owners in the south may be working towards winterizing their watercraft, not necessarily for the same reasons, but to prepare it for storage during the cooler winter months of non-use.

Winterizing is about preventive maintenance and the steps needed for proper storage, and where and how you choose to store your watercraft will vary depending on temperature exposure, weather, duration of storage, etc. Non-use can be damaging if specific procedures and maintenance products are not used, leaving you on the shore next spring while the others are on the water. We recommend consulting your authorized Sea-Doo dealer as they offer valuable advice and can assist in the maintenance of your personal watercraft.

Many negative implications can result from improper storage: gummed-up fuel systems, prematurely failed batteries, rusted precious internal metals to actual broken engine cases, and other areas with cooling jackets. Going through the proper motions is key to keeping your watercraft at peak performance. If you are in an area that reaches the water freezing range, complete winterization is a must.

Some individuals are able to do this on their own, but we recommend consulting your authorized Sea-Doo dealer as they offer valuable advice and can assist in the maintenance of your personal watercraft. This way you can be assured the right maintenance products, the right tools and technicians armed with the latest tech updates from BRP engineering, are utilized to ensure the best preventive maintenance is performed.

Here are a few tips to help you in the process of winterizing your watercraft.

Dry it: The biggest enemy of cold winters is water freezing where it isn’t supposed to be. Before you do anything, start your watercraft engine and give it several short bursts of power to blow out any excess water in the exhaust system. Do this until you don’t see any water existing the exhaust port, but not more than 20 seconds.

Soak it: Another option to protect the exhaust system from freezing fluids is to run a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water through the exhaust system via the flush system. Produce a two gallon mix of antifreeze and water in a five gallon bucket and using a hose or using a water pump or bilge pump attaché to the flush outlet and start the watercraft engine. Flush the system with the antifreeze mix and then shut the engine off when the mix has filtered through the exhaust system thoroughly and completely. The antifreeze should protect any fluids from freezing in the exhaust system.

Battery Care: As you are prepare your Sea-Doo watercraft for hibernation, pay special smart start batteryattention to your battery. Your battery is where it all starts (or doesn’t start) and batteries can and do lose their ability to maintain a charge over time and proper battery storage is essential.

Your watercraft battery should be removed from your watercraft to ensure no draw of any kind is made on the battery during months of non-use. To keep your battery fresh and healthy we suggest a Yuasa Smart Shot Automatic Battery Charger be attached to the battery to maintain a full charge. Ensure the battery is place on a secure surface in an open-air location away from any flammable substances.  If the battery is not showing a full charge after a day or two on the yuasa batteries 2charger, ensure all connections are solid and if the battery still does not charge, it is time to replace the battery with a new Yuasa battery.  Please see your local dealer about purchasing a new Yuasa battery for your Sea-Doo watercraft.

Fuel System Care: Time is the enemy with fuels that are untreated. This procedure should be conducted in below freezing climates as well as any time the Sea-Doo watercraft is going to be stored for an extended amount of time.

First, add a fuel stabilizer to the tank. The XPS’s fuel stabilizer will help prevent fuel fuel stabilizercontamination and residue build up in carburetor, fuel injection system and gas lines.  This stabilizer should always be used before storing your Sea-Doo watercraft for a long period of time and is suitable for all gasoline engines. If you do not have a full tank, we recommend adding the stabilizer before you fill your tank, and we recommend to fill your tank with premium gasoline if possible.

To further ensure your fuel system will deliver fuel to the engine properly, check fuel hoses for leaks and loose or damaged hose clamps. If you smell fuel or worse yet see fuel in the bilge you will need to trace the source of the leak using your hands and/or fingers and replace worn or cracked fuel lines, clamps, or gaskets.  Ensure you inspect your fuel cap and rubber gasket for cracks or leaks.

Winterizing is also the ideal time to check other normal wear items and possibly replace them if needed.

Drive Line: Wear on the impeller and impeller wear ring can negatively affect the performance of your watercraft. Even if you avoid ingesting a large rock into the jet pump system, shells, sand, pebbles, and other debris can wear the edges of the impeller and/or grind away at the wear ring.

The wear ring is a plastic ring that encases the impeller and is intended to sacrifice itself when debris is ingested as it is much less expensive and easier to replace than the high-performance stainless steal impeller. If you feel the acceleration isn’t what it used to be on your Sea-Doo watercraft a new wear ring can help return that legendary acceleration. The Sea-Doo wear ring is made of a high density polymer material and the part number can be found in the Sea-Doo Parts Catalog or contact your local dealer.

The impeller is what ultimately grabs the water and pushes you over it and even though it is produced a very high grade and hardened stainless steel. It is a finely tuned piece of the performance equation and a rock or other hard object can cause damage to the blades leading edge and rob performance. The impeller damage is usually easier to see than the wear ring as the leading edge is usually bent, chipped, torn. If the impeller is damaged a replacement is in order.  If your impeller is damaged, we recommend consulting your local dealer.

jet pump oilAnd finish by completing the jet pump maintenance with a fresh dose of XPS jet pump oil. The water jet pump put tremendous pressure on the drive line and it is important that all moving parts are properly lubricated including the jet pump and the impeller shaft.

Lubrication: A fresh oil change with XPS 4-Stroke

xps oilsynthetic oil and fresh oil filter is recommended to again ensure that your Sea-Doo watercraft will be ready to go as soon as you unwrap it for spring.  XPS synthetic 4-stroke oilis specifically engineered to meet the particular lubrication requirements of Sea-Doo watercraft equipped with Rotax 4-TEC 4-stroke engines.  And to finish the pre-storage care xps lubeshould always include a lubrication of all moving parts such as the steering nozzle pivot points and reverse/brake mechanisms with XPS Lube. It is also helpful to mist over the engine and electrical components with XPS Lube as it also displaces any left over water on components.

We know nobody looks forward to putting their Sea-Doo watercraft in hibernation but if you follow the above recommendations, come spring you will be on the water trouble free.  Please consult your local dealer directly with any questions regarding winterizing your Sea-Doo watercraft.

Sea-Doo watercraft iBR features compliment unique Red Bull events

| Seadoo | November 26, 2013

BRP has partnered with Red Bull in many water based events over the past ten years starting with the Red Bull Tow-At surf event in Sebastian, Florida where an elite group of East Coast surfers including Cory and Shay Lopez, CJ Hobgood, Josh Kerr among others were pulled at waves behind a Sea-Doo WAKE watercraft to pop off of wave faces at higher speeds in efforts to pull off big aerial tricks. The Tow-At events continue with Sea-Doo watercraft powering the way to help put the wind underneath their “wings”.

 

Red Bull is also deeply involved with Wake sports and Sea-Doo has been there during their biggest events as the only watercraft specifically designed for board sports. The Red Bull Depth Charge is arguably the most elaborate and unique Wakeboard events ever to be produced and Sea-Doo WAKE models were the preferred tow vehicles for several reasons. The depth charge event took place 185 feet below the earth’s surface in Bonne Terre, Missouri on the world’s largest underground lake.

Sea-Doo watercraft were used as the tow vehicles noted for their low emissions, necessary in the caves of the lake, and for their nimble handling and tight quarter control. The Sea-Doo watercraft were lowered from their nose by a cable to the water where they pulled 14 of the sports elite riders. Legendary Wakebaorder Parks Bonifay won that one time event and has since utilized Sea-Doo watercraft to wakeboard among icebergs and other extreme conditions that normal boats can not accomplish.

 

Red Bull also provides a launch pad for teams who want to test out their idea of how to fly during the Red Bull Flugtag events. Flugtag means, ”Flying Day” in their native Austrian tongue but what the contestants are permitted to use to construct their flying machines is limited. Each team builds their flying machine according to the strict rules and propels it off of a 30-foot tall platform in attempts to fly the furthest over water, completely by human power.

And when the Flugtag team plops in the water Sea-Doo watercraft are there to pull them out of the water and back to their adoring fans on land. The Red Bull event teams utilize Sea-Doo as their watercraft of choice mainly because of the iBR (intelligent Brake & Reverse) system that allows the rescue drivers to approach and attend to flyers with ultimate control.

Sea-Doo watercraft have also been utilized in the recent Red Bull Storm Chase where an elite group of kite surfers chase extreme weather conditions in efforts of the ultimate kite surfing session.

Sea-Doo watercraft equipped with iBR and supercharged engines support to the windsurfers as they battle to stay on top of these massive waves. The competition is split into two parts in accordance with the main global storm seasons. Between January 10 and March 22, 2013, ten courageous windsurfers nominated via public voting were on standby to hunt down one massive storm at seven previously nominated destinations. Four of the original fleet were eliminated during the first mission in Brandon Bay, Ireland, at the end of January. From July 22, 2013, the six remaining windsurfers have been waiting for the second mission. Out of these six athletes, four emerged as qualifiers for the third and final mission to crown the victorious Red Bull Storm Chase Champion of 2013. To catch raging conditions, the participants have to be flexible-to-the-max during the holding period with just 48-hours to mobilize on-site before the next storm strikes.

Red Bull Storm Chase continues its mission of finding the most challenging waves to windsurf. Don’t miss the action clip of Mission #2 to Tasmania (Australia). This clip includes highlights from: Marcilio Browne (BRA), Daniel Bruch (GER), Victor Fernandez Lopez (ESP), Leon Jamaer (GER), Julien Taboulet (FRA), and Thomas Traversa (FRA) competing in hurricane-force winds and double mast-high waves.

Look for more unique events with Red Bull and Sea-Doo in 2014.
