300hr service

Recommended Posts

I've got an 06 vRide with 298 hours, just wondering what you guys/the dealers suggest replacing at the 300 hour mark?

No special 300 hour service. Keep up with your oil changes every 50 hours and the annual tune up/inspection stuff.

Thats good.

What do most suggest as the "annual tune up"? I replaced my impeller and fuel filter at 150hrs, but other than that, I've just changed the oil every 50hrs.

I would say fuel filter, cap and rotor, plugs, impeller (annual or biannual but that is a debate), and a transmission fluid change which is usually done at winterization. Also inspect and adjust the belt, replace if needed.

Check out this site and you can check the recommendations for maintenance in the manual. There's a nice table showing what needs to be inspected or changed and when.

You probably will not find anything about muffler bearings, however. You'll need to learn about that here. Welcome!

I don't have cap and rotor - these new motors are coil pack driven.

VinRLX - thanks for the Indmar link, the .pdf had the scheduled maintenance chart that I needed. Thats funny because I actually just replaced my muffler bearing and my blinker fluid in my tahoe last week. Thumbup.gif

Ok, great! And thanks for reminding me--I need to change the blinker fluid in my wife's car.

if you have the Platnimum plugs, they are good for 300 hours, so you should think about replacing. But you dont have to every season.

A local auto mechanic suggested to me to replace those plugs every 200 hrs. His suggestion was based on he has seen plugs sieze up if you wait for 300 hrs, but that was based on autos.

My plugs went 350 hrs before I replaced and I had no problems.

Oh Crap!

We just had a complete overhaul on the Expi and there was no mention of Blinker Fluid on the dealer '2000 point inspection.' That's it! I'm never taking my car to them again.

Anyone know of a good place / source to buy my own fluid? Does 303 make their own version?

No, but I think Valvoline does now. :)

Just got my 300 hr service done at Tilley's in Ventura. $700 by the way.

I feel better knowing that it was done properly though and not worrying if I missed something.

I agree about the peace of mind -

Personally I don't think it is worth the time & money to take it to the dealer. The length of time it takes to take it down, drop it off, pick it up etc, I can do all those things myself - and save the $ for Gas.

We all have different things we like to do with our time, so not flamin' your choice. Most on the list, I'm doing on a regular basis - just keepin' an eye on things under the "hood"

I like to do most myself but I don't have the time to spend doing a full service and worrying about "did I miss something" or "is that weird rattle something I did". I already had to take it to the dealer because of the windsheild issue which I have in another post. This is the first time since i've owned the boat that i've had it in for service so it does give me peace of mind to know things are fine from a pros standpoint. I will be doing future fluid & impeller changes myself.
