Maintenance

POST-OPERATION CARE

WARNING
Allow engine to cool before performing any maintenance

 

General Care

Remove the watercraft from the water every day to prevent marine organisms growth. Should any water be present in the hull, unscrew the drain plugs and tilt the watercraft to the rear in order to allow water to flow out.

Wipe up any remaining fluid in the engine compartment (bilge, engine, battery,etc.) with clean dry rags (this is particularly important in salt water use).

Additional Care for Foul Water or Salt Water

when the watercraft is operated in foulwater and particularly in salt water, additional care should be taken to protect the watercraft and its components. Rinse trailer and watercraft 's bilge area with fresh water.

CAUTION: Failure to perform propercare such as: watercraft rinsing, exhast cooling system flushing and anticorrosion treatment, when watercraft is used in salt water,will result in damage to the watercraft and its components. Never leave the watercraft stored in direct sunlight.

Cooling System Flushing and Engine Internal Lubrication

Flushing the cooling system with fresh Water is essential to neutralize corroding effects of salt or other chemical products present in water.It will help to clean up sand' salt, shells or other particles in water jackets (engine, exhaust manifold, tuned pipe) and/or hoses.

Engine lubrication and flushing should be performed when the watercraft is not expected to be used further the same day or when the watercraft is stored for any extended time.

 

WARNING
Perform this operation in a well ventilated area.

 

Proceed as follows:
Clean jet pump by spraying water in its inlet and outlet and then apply a coating of BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant or equivalent

SPX and GTS MODELS
Remove seat to allow access to cooling system.
Remove dust cap from fitting spigot and attach coupler hose (P/N 295 500 258). Make sure coupler hose is properly locked to fitting spigot. Install a hose pincher on water outlet hose.

NOTE: This prevents water from directly exiting cooling system.

Attach other end of coupler hose to a garden hose. Do not open water tap yet.

All Models Except SPX and GTS
To flush engine , connect a garden hose to connector located at the rear of watercraft near the jet pump.

NOTE: A quick connect adapter can be used (P/N 295 500 473). No hose pincher is required to flush engine.

 

TYPICAL
1. Hose adapter
2. Quick connect adapter (not mandatory)
3. Garden hose

 

NOTE: The quick connect adapter is supplied with GSX RFI and GTX RFI models.

 

WARNING
When operating the engine while the watercraft is out of the water, the heat exchanger in the ride plate may become very hot. Avoid any contact with ride plate as burns may occur.

 

GTX 4TEC

All Models
Start the engine then immediately open the water tap.

 

WARNING
Certain components in the engine compartment may be very hot. Direct contact may result in skin burn. Do not touch any electrical parts or jet pump area when engine is running.

 

WARNING
Do not touch any electrical parts or jet pump area when engine is running.

 

CAUTION
Never flush a hot engine. Always start the engine before opening the water tap. Open water tap immediately after engine is started to prevent overheating.

 

Run the engine about 2-3 minutes at a fast idle around 3500 RPM

All Models
Run the engine about 20 seconds at a fast idle between 4000-5000 RPM.

GTX 4TEC MODEL

CAUTION: Never run engine without supplying water to the exhaust cooling system when watercraft is out of water.
Ensure water flows out of exhaust out-let while flushing. Otherwise, refer to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer for servicing.

CAUTION: Never run engine longer than 5 minutes. Drive line seal has no cooling when watercraft is out of water.
Close the water tap, than stop the engine.

CAUTION: Always close the water tap before stopping the engine.

Lubrication
Spray BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant or equivalent, though hole of air intake silencer keeping engine at fast idle during one minute.

Spray BOMBADIER LUBE lubricant into air intake silencer keeping engine at fast idle.

 

TYPICAL
1. Hose adapter
2. Quick connect adapter (not mandatory)
3. Garden hose

 

NOTE: Lubrication of engine should be done for at least 1 minute. After approximately half a minute, close fuel valve to run engine out of fuel while lubricating.

 

CAUTION
When engine begins to run irregularly because of fuel starvation, immediately stop water flow before engine dies.

 

Close the water tap then stop the engine.

 

CAUTION
Always close the water tap before stopping the engine.

 

Disconnect the garden hose.

SPX and GTS Models
Unlock and remove coupler hose. Reinstall dust cap over fitting spigot. Remove hose pincher from water outlet hose.

 

CAUTION
Serious engine damage can occur if hose pincher is not removed.

 

All Models
Wipe up any residual water from the engine.
Remove spark plug cables and connect them on grounding device.

 

WARNING
Always use spark plug cable grounding device when removing spark plugs.

Remove both spark plugs and spray BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant into each cylinder.
Install safety lanyard on the switch. Fully apply throttle lever then depress start/stop button to crank the engine a few turns to distribute the oil onto cylinder well.

GSX RFI and GTX RFI Models

Full apply throttle lever then install safety lanyard on the switch. Depress start/stop button to crank engine a few turns.
NOTE: Proceeding in this order, no fuel will be injected into the engine. Apply anti-seize lubricant on spark plug threads then reinstall them. Reinstall plug on air intake silencer cover.

NOTE: Engine fogging should be done with BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant whenever the watercraft is to be stored for few days or a long period.

Anticorrosion Treatment
To prevent corrosion, spray a corrosion inhibitor (salt water resistant) such as BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant or equivalent over metallic components in engine compartment. Apply dielectric grease (salt water resistant) on battery posts and cable connectors.

 

CAUTION
Never leave rags or tools in the engine compartment or in the bilge.
