In the owners manual I read to only break in the waverunner for an hour. When I called the service dept at Mission Motorsports one of the mechanics told me 1/2 throttle for first 10 hours and 3/4 throttle for the next 15 after that. Any input from long time owners who have successfully put bunches of hours on their craft would be appreciated.

There are a few different schools of thought here. I have read articles regarding break in for motorcycle engines, the easy break in and hard break in.

I just got an 09 VX Deluxe week before last, for what it's worth I ran the engine normal just didn't hold WOT (wide open throttle) for more than a moment.

Its fine to use it to 100% throttle. Just dont give it a hard time by loading the motor. What i mean by that is spinning out time and time again and giving full throttle. Also probably dont tow for the first few hours. But it will be ran in in like 5hours max.
