GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
Avoid Carbon Monoxide
Poisoning
All engine exhaust contains carbon
monoxide, a deadly gas. Breathing carbon monoxide can cause headaches,
dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, confusion and eventually death.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that may be present
even if you do not see or smell any engine exhaust. Deadly levels of carbon
monoxide can collect rapidly, and you
can quickly be overcome and unable
to save yourself. Also, deadly levels of
carbon monoxide can linger for hours
or days in enclosed or poorly ventilated
areas. If you experience any symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning,
leave the area immediately, get fresh
air and seek medical treatment.
To prevent serious injury or death from
carbon monoxide:
– Never run the watercraft in poorly
ventilated or partially enclosed areas such as watercraft houses, seawalls or other boats in close proximity. Even if you try to ventilate
engine exhaust, carbon monoxide
can rapidly reach dangerous levels.
– Never run the watercraft outdoors
where engine exhaust can be drawn
into a building through openings
such as windows and doors.
– Never stand behind the watercraft
while the engine is running. A person standing behind a running engine may inhale high concentrations
of exhaust fumes. Inhalation of concentrated exhaust fumes that contain carbon monoxide can result in
CO poisoning, serious health problems and death.
Avoid Gasoline Fires and
Other Hazards
Gasoline is extremely flammable and
highly explosive. Fuel vapors can
spread and be ignited by a spark or
8
________
flame many feet away from the engine. To reduce the risk of fire or explosion, follow these instructions:
– Use only an approved red gasoline
container to store fuel.
– Strictly adhere to the instructions in
FUELING section.
– Never start watercraft if gasoline or
gasoline vapor odors is present in
the engine compartment.
– Never start or operate the engine if
the fuel cap is not properly secured.
– Do not carry gasoline containers in
the storage bin (if equipped) or anywhere else on the watercraft.
Gasoline is poisonous and can cause
injury or death.
– Never siphon gasoline with your
mouth.
– If you swallow gasoline, get any in
your eyes, or inhale gasoline vapors,
see a doctor immediately.
If gasoline is spilled on you, wash
thoroughly with soap and water and
change your clothes.
Avoid Burns from Hot Parts
Certain components may become hot
during operation. Avoid contact during and shortly after operation to avoid
burns.
Accessories and
Modifications
Do not make unauthorized modifications, or use accessories that are not
approved by BRP. Since these changes
have not been tested by BRP, they
may increase the risk of accidents or
injuries, and they can make the watercraft illegal for use on water.
See your authorized Sea-Doo dealer
for available accessories for your watercraft.

________
SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
Reminders Regarding Safe
Operation
The performance of this watercraft
may significantly exceed that of other
watercraft you may have operated.
Make sure you read and understand
the content of this Operator's Guide
to become completely familiar with
the controls and operation of the watercraft before embarking on your first
trip, or taking on a passenger(s). If you
have not had the opportunity to do so,
practice driving solo in a suitable traffic free area to become accustomed
to the feel and response of each control. Be fully familiar with all controls
before accelerating above idle speed.
Do not assume that all PWCs handle
identically. Each model differs, often
substantially.
Always keep in mind that as the throttle lever is returned to the idle position,
less directional control is available. To
turn the watercraft, both steering and
throttle are necessary. Do not release
throttle when trying to steer away from
objects. Your need throttle to steer. If
the engine is shut off, directional control is lost.
Although most watercraft have no
means of braking, advancement in
technologies now permit us to offer
some models that are equipped with
a braking system called the iBRTM system. Practice braking maneuvers in
a safe traffic-free area to become familiar with handling under braking and
with stopping distances under various
operating conditions.
WARNING
Stopping distance will vary depending on initial speed, load,
wind, number of riders and water
conditions. The amount of braking
power commanded by the operator using the iBR lever (intelligent
Brake and Reverse) will also affect
stopping distance.
________
When braking, riders must brace themselves against the deceleration force
to prevent from moving forward on the
watercraft and losing balance.
When operating an iBR equipped watercraft, be aware that other boats following or operating in close proximity
may not be able to stop as quickly.
When at speed and the brake is first
applied, a plume of water will shoot up
in the air behind the watercraft which
may cause the operator of a following
watercraft to momentarily loose sight
of your PWC. It is important to inform
the operator of a watercraft who intends to follow in a convoy formation,
of the braking and maneuvering capability of your PWC, what the plume of
water indicates, and that a greater distance should be maintained between
watercraft.
When actuating the iBR control lever
while the watercraft has some forward speed, the braking mode will
engage and generate a deceleration
proportional to the iBR lever position.
The more you pull in the iBR lever, the
greater the braking force becomes.
Be careful to gradually actuate the iBR
lever to adjust the intensity of the braking force, and to simultaneously release the throttle lever.
The brake feature of the iBR system
cannot prevent your PWC from drifting due to current or wind. It has no
braking effect on the rearward motion.
Also note that your engine must be
running to be able to use the brake.
The personal watercraft jet thrust can
cause injury. The jet pump may pick up
debris and throw it rearward causing a
risk of injuring people, damaging the jet
pump, or other property.
Observe the instructions on all safety
labels. They are there to help assure
that you have a safe and enjoyable outing.

SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
Do not store any objects in areas that
are not designed specifically for storage.
Riding with passenger(s), pulling
tubes, a skier, or a wake boarder makes
the PWC handle differently and requires greater skill.
All PWC models come equipped with
tow eyelets that can be used for mooring and as tie-down points when trailering, can be used to attach a tow rope
for a skier, tube or wake boarder. Do
not use these attachment points or any
other portion of the watercraft to tow
a para-sail or any other craft. Personal
injury or severe damage may occur.
Combustion engines need air to operate; consequently this PWC cannot
be totally watertight. Any maneuvers
such as turning constantly in tight circles, plunging the bow through waves,
or capsizing the watercraft, that cause
the air inlet openings to be under water may cause severe engine problems
due to water ingestion. Refer to OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS subsection
and the WARRANTY section contained
in this Operator's Guide.
Engine exhaust contains carbon
monoxide (CO), which can cause serious health problems or death if inhaled
in sufficient quantities. Do not operate
the PWC in a confined area or allow
CO to accumulate around the PWC,
or in enclosed or sheltered areas such
as when docked, or when rafting. Be
aware of the risk of CO emanations
from exhaust of other PWCs.
Know the waters in which the watercraft is to be operated. Current, tides,
rapids, hidden obstacles, wakes and
waves etc. can affect safe operation.
It is not advisable to operate the watercraft in rough waters or inclement
weather.
In shallow water, proceed with caution
and at very low speeds. Grounding or
abrupt stops may result in injury and
10
_______
watercraft damage. Debris may also
be picked up and thrown rearward by
the jet pump onto people or property.
Keep the tether cord attached to the
operator's PFD or wrist (wrist strap
required) at all times and keep it free
from snagging on the handlebars to
help ensure the engine stops should
the operator fall off. After riding, remove the tether cord from the engine
cut-off switch to avoid unauthorized
use by children or others. If the operator falls off the watercraft and the
tether cord is not attached as recommended, the watercraft engine will not
stop.
Ride within your limits and level of riding ability.
Always ride responsibly and safely.
Use common sense and courtesy.
Respect the environment and the
rights of other users of the waterways.
As the operator and owner of a PWC,
you are responsible for damage by the
wake of your PWC. Do not let anyone
throw refuse overboard.
While your watercraft has the capacity of operating at high speeds, it
is strongly recommended that high
speed operation only be applied when
ideal conditions exist and are permitted. Higher speed operation requires a
higher degree of skill and increases the
risk of severe injuries.
The forces generated on the body of
riders while turning, negotiating waves
or wakes, operating in choppy waters,
or falling off the watercraft, especially
at higher speeds, may cause injury including the possibility of broken bones
or more serious bodily injuries. Remain flexible and avoid sharp turns.
PWCs are not designed for night-time
operation.
Avoid riding in very rough waters or
practicing extreme maneuvers like
jumping wakes or waves.
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
Before Getting Underway
For safety reasons and proper care, always perform the pre-ride inspection
as specified in your Operator's Guide
before operating your watercraft.
Do not exceed the payload or passenger capacities for your watercraft.
Overloading can affect maneuverability, stability and performance. Also,
heavy seas reduce capacity. A payload
or person capacity plate is not an excuse for failure to use common sense
or good judgment.
Regularly inspect the PWC, hull, engine, safety equipment, and all other
boating gear and keep them in safe operating condition.
Be sure you have the minimum required safety equipment, PFDs and
any additional gear needed for your
cruise.
Ensure that all lifesaving equipment,
including fire extinguisher (not supplied with vehicle), are in safe operating condition and easily accessible.
Show all passengers where this equipment is stored on the PWC, and make
sure they know how to use it.
Keep an eye on the weather. Check local weather broadcasts before departure. Be alert to changing conditions.
Keep accurate and up-to-date charts of
the boating area on board. Before getting underway, check water conditions
in the planned boating area.
Ensure there is enough fuel on board
for the planned trip. Always verify fuel
level before use and during the ride.
Apply the principle of 1/3 of the fuel
to reach your destination, 1/3 to return, and keep 1/3 in reserve. Allow
for changes due to adverse weather or
other delays.
________
Operator and Passenger Awareness
Read and understand all safety labels
on the Sea-Doo PWC, the Operator's
Guide, all other safety documents, and
watch the SAFETY DVD video before
operating the PWC.
Respect applicable laws. Check local
and federal boating laws applicable
to the waterways where you intend
to use your watercraft. Learn the local navigation rules. Know and understand the applicable navigation system
(such as buoys and signs).
Remember that sun, wind, fatigue or
illness may impair your judgement and
reaction time.
Operation of this PWC by a person under 16 years of age, or a person with a
disability that impairs vision, reaction
time, judgment, or operation of the
controls is NOT recommended.
Always properly use the tether cord
when operating the watercraft and ensure that all passengers are familiar
with its use.
Ensure that any operator and all passengers know how to swim and how
to reboard the PWC from the water.
Boarding in deep water can be strenuous. Practice in chest-deep water
before operating or embarking your
watercraft in deep water. Ensure that
any operator and all passengers wear a
PFD at all times and take extra precautions when boating.
Never turn handlebar while someone
is near the rear of watercraft. Keep
away from steering moving parts (nozzle, iBR gate, linkages, etc.).
Do not start the engine or operate the
watercraft if anyone is in the water
nearby, or near the rear of the watercraft
Be aware of the iBR gate movement
when starting the engine, shutting
down the engine or using the iBR lever.
Automatic movement of the gate may
squeeze fingers or toes of people taking a hold on the back or your PWC.
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
11
SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
The operator and passenger(s) should
be properly seated and have a firm grip
on a handhold before starting the watercraft, and at all times when the watercraft is in motion. All passenger(s)
should be instructed to use the handholds provided, or to hold on to the
waist of the person in front of them.
Each passenger must be able to simultaneously place both feet firmly flat
against each footwell when properly
seated. When going over waves, or in
rough water, passenger(s) may raise
their body slightly off the seat to absorb the shocks with their legs.
When braking or decelerating, riders
must brace themselves against the deceleration force to prevent from moving forward on the watercraft and losing balance.
When accelerating on a PWC with passenger(s), whether from a complete
stop or while underway, always do so
progressively. Fast acceleration may
cause your passenger(s) to lose their
balance and fall rearward off the watercraft. Make sure that your passenger(s) are aware of or can anticipate
any rapid acceleration.
Severe internal injuries can occur if
water is forced into body cavities as a
result of falling into water or being near
a jet thrust nozzle. Consequently, the
wearing of a wet suit bottom is highly
recommended.
Keep away from the intake grate while
the engine is running. Items such
as long hair, loose clothing, or PFD
straps can become entangled in moving parts.
If the throttle lever is depressed while
braking, the iBR system will disable the
throttle command by the user. When
releasing the iBR lever while the throttle lever is still depressed, the throttle command will regain control and
generate an acceleration after a short
delay. Release throttle lever if acceleration is not needed.
12
_______
Before reboarding, make sure engine
is off and the tether cord is removed
from the engine cut-off switch.
To prevent accidental starting, always
remove the tether cord from the engine cut-off switch when swimmers
are boarding, nearby, or during removal
of any weeds or debris from the intake
grate.
On a PWC, never place your feet and
legs in the water to aid turning.
Operation by Minors
Minors should always be supervised
by an adult whenever operating a watercraft. Laws regarding the minimum
age and licensing requirements of minors may vary from one jurisdiction to
another. Be sure to contact the local
boating authorities for information regarding the legal operation of a PWC in
the intended jurisdiction of use. BRP
recommends a minimum operator age
of 16 years old.
Drugs and Alcohol
Never use with drugs or alcohol. Like
driving a car, driving a watercraft requires the operator to be sober, attentive and alert. Operating a watercraft
while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs is not only dangerous,
but it is also a Federal offense carrying a significant penalty. These laws
are vigorously enforced. The use of
drugs and alcohol, singly or in combination, decreases reaction time, impedes judgment, impairs vision, and
inhibits your ability to safely operate a
watercraft.
WARNING
Alcohol consumption and boating do not mix! Operating with
the use of drugs or alcohol endangers the lives of your passengers,
other boaters, and yourself. Federal laws prohibit operating a watercraft with the use of drugs or
alcohol.
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
Water Sports (Towing
with the Watercraft) (3UP
Models Only)
WARNING
Avoid personal injury! Your PWC
is not designed for and should not
be used for pulling another craft,
parasails, kites, gliders, or any device which can become airborne.
Use your watercraft only for water
sports it was designed for.
Water skiing, wakeboarding, or riding
a towed inflatable apparatus are some
of the more popular water sports. Taking part in any water sport requires
increased safety awareness by the participant and the watercraft operator. If
you have never towed someone behind your PWC before, it is a good idea
to spend some hours as an observer,
working with and learning from an experienced operator. It is also important
to be aware of the skill and experience
of the person being towed.
Everyone participating in a water sport
should observe these guidelines:
– Riding with passenger(s) or pulling
a tube, skier or wakeboarder makes
the watercraft handle differently
and requires greater skill.
– Always respect the safety and comfort of your passenger(s) and person
being towed on skis, wakeboard or
other water products.
– Always carry an observer when
pulling a tube, skier or wakeboarder
to observe the person being towed
and inform the operator about the
participants' hand signals. The operator must focus his attention on
operating the watercraft and the
waters ahead.
– Proceed with only as much speed as
required and follow the observers'
instructions.
________
– When pulling a tube, skier, or a wake
boarder, do not make tight sharp
turns or use the braking system
unless absolutely necessary. Remember that although this PWC
is manoeuvrable and has stopping
capabilities (models with iBR), the
person in tow may not be able to
avoid an obstacle, or the PWC with
which it is being towed.
– Allow only capable swimmers to
take part in any water sport.
– Always wear an approved personal
flotation device (PFD). Wearing
a properly designed PFD helps a
stunned or unconscious person stay
afloat.
– Be considerate to others you share
the water with.
– Both the operator and observer
should monitor the location of the
tow rope when participating in watersports. A slack tow rope can become entangled with a person(s) or
objects on the PWC or in the water, particularly when making a tight
turn or circling, and cause serious
personal injury.
– Do not tow a person in any water
sport on a short tow rope such that
the person inhales exhaust fumes
in concentration. Inhalation of concentrated exhaust fumes, which
contain carbon monoxide, can result in CO poisoning, personal injury
and death.
– Use a tow rope of sufficient length
and size, and make sure it is adequately secured to your watercraft. While some watercraft are
equipped or can be fitted with a
specially designed towing mechanism, avoid installing a tow pole
on a PWC. It can become a hazard
should someone fall on it.
– Give immediate attention to a person who has fallen. He or she is
vulnerable in the water alone and
may not be seen by other boaters.
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
13
SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
– Approach a person in the water from
the lee side (opposite the direction
of the wind). Turn off the motor before coming close to the person.
– Participate in water sports only
in safe areas. Stay away from
other boats, channels, beaches,
restricted areas, swimmers, and
heavily traveled waterways and underwater obstructions.
– Turn off the engine and anchor the
watercraft before swimming.
– Swim only in areas designated as
safe for swimming. These are usually marked with a swim area buoy.
Do not swim alone or at night.
straps can become entangled in moving parts resulting in serious injury or
drowning. In shallow water, shells,
sand, pebbles or other objects could
be drawn up by the jet pump and be
thrown rearward.

Hypothermia
– Do not water ski between sunset
and sunrise. It is illegal in most areas.
– Do not drive the watercraft directly
behind a water skier, tuber or wakeboarder. At 40 km/h (25 MPH) per
hour, the watercraft will overtake a
person who falls in the water 60 m
(197 ft) in front of your watercraft in
about 5 seconds.
– Shut off the engine and remove the
tether cord from the engine cut-off
switch when anyone is in the water
nearby.
– Stay at least 45 m (148 ft) away
from areas marked by a diver down
float.
Avoid personal injury! Do not allow
anyone near the propulsion system or
intake grate, even when the engine
is off. Items such as long hair, loose
clothing or personal flotation device
Hypothermia, the loss of body heat
resulting in a subnormal body temperature, is a significant cause of death in
boating accidents. After an individual
has succumbed to hypothermia, he or
she will lose consciousness and then
drown.
PFDs can increase survival time because of the insulation they provide.
Naturally, the warmer the water, the
less insulation one will require. When
operating in cold water (below 4°C
(40°F)) consideration should be given
to using a coat or jacket style PFD as
they cover more body area than the
vest style PFDs.

_______
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
Some points to remember about hypothermia protection:
– While afloat in the water, do not attempt to swim unless it is to reach
a nearby watercraft, fellow survivor, or a floating object onto which
you can lean or climb. Unnecessary swimming increases the rate
of body heat loss. In cold water,
drown-proof methods that require
putting your head in the water are
not recommended. Keep your head
out of the water. This will greatly
lessen heat loss and increase your
survival time.
– Maintain a positive attitude about
your survival and rescue. This will
improve your chances of extending
your survival time until you can be
rescued. Your will to live does make
a difference!
– If there is more than one person
in the water, huddling together is
recommended. This action tends to
reduce the rate of heat loss and thus
increase the survival time.
– Always wear your PFD. It won't help
you fight off the effects of hypothermia if you don't have it on when you
go into the water.
Safe Boating Courses
Many countries recommend or require
a boating safety course. Check with
your local competent authorities.
Check local and federal boating laws
applicable to the waterways where
you intend to use your watercraft.
Learn the local navigation rules. Know
and understand the applicable navigation system (such as buoys and signs).

ACTIVE TECHNOLOGIES (iCONTROL)
Introduction
NOTE: Some functions or features described in this section may not apply to
every PWC model, or may be available
as an option.
iControlTM (intelligent Control systems) provides an environment
whereby the operator can control
many systems without taking his
hands off the handlebars.
All controls are at the operator's finger
tips and activated by pressing a button
or pulling a lever. The operator's attention can thus remain focused on the
water and driving the watercraft.
Each control is electronic and provides
a command signal to an electronic
module whose function is to assure
proper operation of its system within
set parameters.
The various systems grouped under
iControl are the:
– iTCTM (intelligent Throttle Control)
– iBR (intelligent Brake and Reverse)
(if equipped)
– O.T.A.S. (Off Throttle Assisted
Steering).
These systems function together to
provide features such as braking, improved watercraft response to operator inputs, increased maneuverability
and control.
It is extremely important for operators
to read all information contained in this
Operator's Guide so as to become familiar with this watercraft, its systems,
controls, capabilities and limitations.
iTC (intelligent Throttle
Control)
The system uses an electronic throttle
control (ETC) that provides command
signals to the ECM (Engine Control
Module). With this system, there is no
need for a traditional throttle cable.
16
_______
The iTC allows the following operating
modes:
– Touring mode
– Sport mode
– O.T.A.S.TM.
Touring Mode (Rotax ACE 900 HO)
In touring mode, available engine
power and acceleration is reduced
when accelerating from a complete
stop and when operating in the low
engine power range under certain conditions.
When throttle is applied, the engine
will progressively accelerate through
its operating range whereby full power
eventually becomes available. If the
engine is throttled down sufficiently
and for a long enough period of time,
engine power and acceleration will
again be reduced.
Sport Mode (Rotax ACE 900 HO)
In sport mode, maximum engine
power is available throughout the engine operational range.
Refer to MULTIFUNCTION GAUGE
subsection for detailed instructions.
O.T.A.S. TM System
(Off-Throttle Assisted Steering)
The O.T.A.S.TM (Off Throttle Assisted
Steering) is also controlled by the iTC.
The O.T.A.S. (Off-Throttle Assisted
Steering) system provides additional
maneuverability in off-throttle situations.
The OTAS system is electronically activated when the operator initiates a
full turn and releases the throttle at the
same time.
Limitations
The O.T.A.S. system cannot help you
maintain control or prevent collisions
in all situations.
Refer to OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
subsection for details.
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
ACTIVE TECHNOLOGIES (iCONTROL)
iBR (intelligent Brake and
Reverse System) (Models
with iBR)
It cannot prevent your watercraft from
drifting in current or wind.
This watercraft uses an electronically
controlled braking and reverse system
called the iBR system (intelligent Brake
and Reverse).
The iBR module controls the position
of the iBR gate to provide:
– Forward
– Reverse
– Neutral
– Braking.
The operator commands the position
of the iBR gate using either the throttle
lever for forward position, or the iBR
lever for neutral, reverse, and for the
braking function.
NOTE: The iBR lever can only be used
to command a change in the gate position if the engine is running.
Using the iBR system significantly reduces the stopping distance of this
watercraft and can increase its maneuverability as it can be used in a straight
line, in a turn, at high or low speeds, or
to propel the watercraft in reverse for
docking or maneuvering in very close
quarters.
Under ideal conditions, experienced
operators were consistently able to
reduce the stopping distance of a watercraft equipped with an iBR system
by approximately 33%, from an initial
speed of 80 km/h (50 MPH).
Limitations
Even when equipped with an iBR system, watercraft do not have the ability
of land based vehicles.
Stopping distance will vary notably depending on initial speed, load, wind,
current, water conditions and the
amount of braking.
The iBR system has no effect on the
rearward motion.

Wind, water spray and speed may
cause a person's eyes to water and
create blurred vision.
As the owner of the watercraft, you
are responsible for assuring that all
required safety equipment is aboard.
You should also consider supplying additional equipment as needed for your
safety and that of your passengers.
Check state and local regulations about
required safety equipment.
Safety equipment required by regulations is mandatory. If local regulations
require additional equipment, it must
be approved by a competent authority.
Minimum requirements include the
following:
– Personal flotation devices (PFDs)
– A buoyant heaving line of 15 m
(50 ft) minimum
– A watertight flashlight or approved
flares
– Signaling device
– Sound producing devices (air horn or
whistle).
Recommended Protective Gear
The operator and passenger(s) of
PWCs must wear protective gear, including:
– A wet suit bottom, or thick tightly
woven and snug fitting clothing that
provides equivalent protection. As
an example, thin bike shorts would
not be appropriate. Severe internal injuries can occur if water is
forced into body cavities as a result of falling in the water or being near jet thrust nozzle. Normal
swimwear does not adequately protect against forceful entry of water
into the lower male or female body
opening(s).
– Footwear, gloves, safety goggles
or glasses are also recommended.
Some type of lightweight, flexible
foot protection is recommended.
This will help reduce possible injury,
should you step on sharp underwater objects.

Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs)
Each person on a recreational watercraft must wear a personal flotation
device (PFD) at all times. Ensure that
these PFDs meet your country's regulations.
A PFD provides buoyancy to help keep
the head and face above the water, and
to help maintain a satisfactory body position while in the water. Body weight
and age should be considered when
selecting a PFD. The buoyancy provided by the PFD should support your
weight in water. The size of the PFD
should be appropriate for the wearer.
Body weight and chest size are common methods used to size PFDs. It is
your responsibility to ensure that you
have the proper number and types of
PFDs on board to comply with federal
and local regulations, and that your
passengers know where they are and
how to use them.
PFD Types
There are five types of approved PFDs.
PFD Type I, Wearable, has the greatest
required buoyancy. Its design allows
for turning most unconscious persons
in the water from face down position to
a vertical or slightly backward, face-up
position. It can greatly increase the
chances of survival. Type I is most
effective for all waters, especially offshore when rescue may be delayed. It
is also the most effective in rough waters.
PFD Type II, Wearable, turns its
wearer in the same way as Type I, but
not as effectively. The Type Il does not
turn as many persons under the same
conditions as a Type I. You may prefer
to use this PFD where there is a probability of quick rescue such as in areas
where other people are commonly involved in water activities.
F00A2DY
TYPE II — WEARABLE
PFD Type III, Wearable, allows wearers to place themselves in a vertical
or slightly backward position. It does
not turn the wearer. It maintains the
wearer in a vertical or slightly backward position and has no tendency
to turn the wearer face down. It has
the same buoyancy as a Type Il PFD
and may be appropriate in areas where
other people are commonly involved in
water activities.
F00A2EY
TYPE III — WEARABLE
F00A2CY
TYPE I — WEARABLE
________
PFD Type V, Wearable, must be worn.
When inflated, it provides buoyancy
equivalent to Type I, Il or III PFDs.
When it is deflated, however, it may
not support some people.

SAFETY EQUIPMENT
Weighing the Risks vs Benefits
In order to decide whether or not you
should wear a helmet, it is best to consider the particular environment you
will be riding in, as well as other factors such as personal experience. Will
there be a lot of traffic on the water?
What is your riding style?
F00A2GY
TYPE V — WEARABLE
Helmets
Some Important Considerations
Helmets are designed to offer some
degree of protection in case of impacts to the head. In most motorized
sports, the benefits of wearing a helmet clearly outweigh the drawbacks.
However, in the case of motorized watersports such as riding personal watercraft, this is not necessarily true as
there are some particular risks associated with the water.
Benefits
A helmet helps to reduce the risk of
injury in case of a head impact against
a hard surface such as another craft in
the case of a collision. Similarly, a helmet with a chin guard might help prevent injuries to the face, jaw or teeth.
Risks
On the other hand, in some situations
when falling off the watercraft, helmets have a tendency to catch the
water, like a “bucket”, and put severe
stresses on the neck or spine. This
could result in choking, severe or permanent neck or spine injury or death.
Helmets may also interfere with peripheral vision and hearing, or increase
fatigue which, could contribute to increase the risk of a collision.
20
_______
The Bottom Line
Since each option minimizes some
risks, but increases others, before
each ride you must decide whether
to wear or not wear a helmet based on
your particular situation.
If you decide to wear a helmet, you
must then decide what type is the
most appropriate for the circumstances. Look for helmets that meet
DOT or Snell standards, and if possible, choose one designed for motorized watersports.
Additional Recommended
Equipment
It is recommended that you acquire
additional equipment for safe, enjoyable cruising. This list, which is not all
inclusive, includes items you should
consider acquiring.
– Local map
– First aid kit
– Tow rope
– Flares
– Mooring cords.
A cellular telephone in a waterproof
bag or container has also been found
to be beneficial to boaters when in distress or just for contacting someone
on shore.
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
PRACTICE EXERCISES
It is always a good idea to practice and
get familiar with all controls, functions
and handling characteristics of your
watercraft before venturing on the water.
Always secure the tether cord to the
engine cut-off switch and the clip to
your PFD or a wrist strap.
Where to Practice
Exercises
Find a suitable area to practice the exercises. Ensure the area meet the following requirements:
– No traffic
– No obstacles
– No swimmers
– No current
– Ample space to maneuver
– Water depth is adequate.
Practice Exercises
Practice alone the following exercises.
Turning
Practice turning in circles in both directions at slow speed. When comfortable with the exercise, increase
difficulty by making some figure 8.
When this is mastered, repeat the
above exercises but at increased
speed.
Stopping Distances
Watercraft not Equipped with iBR
Practice stopping the watercraft in a
straight line at different speeds.
Remember, water drag is the main
factor which reduces the watercraft
speed and thus the stopping distance.
NOTE: The watercraft speed, load,
current and wind also play an important
role in affecting stopping distances.
________
Watercraft Equipped with iBR
Practice stopping the watercraft in
a straight line at various speeds and
braking force.
Remember that watercraft speed,
load, water conditions, current and
wind also affect stopping distances.
Reverse (Watercraft Equipped with
iBR)
Practice reverse operation to learn
how the watercraft operates in reverse
and reacts with steering inputs.
NOTE: Always perform this exercise
at slow speeds.
Avoiding an Obstacle
Practice obstacle avoidance (choose a
virtual point on the water) by steering
the watercraft and maintaining throttle.
Repeat exercise, but this time release
throttle while turning.
NOTE: With this exercise, you will
learn that you need throttle to steer the
watercraft in a different direction.
Docking
Watercraft not Equipped with iBR
NOTE: You can use the start and stop
button to reduce the docking speed.
Practice docking using the throttle and
steering to become familiar with the
response of the PWC and to develop
good control skills.

Important Factors Not to
Neglect
In addition, always remember that the
following conditions have a direct impact on how your watercraft will behave and respond to different inputs:
– Loads
– Currents
– Wind
– Water conditions.
Make sure to be alert to these conditions, and adapt accordingly. If possible, practice further in these conditions.
For delicate maneuvers, the best advice is always to try to reduce your
speed to a minimum.

NAVIGATION RULES
Operating Rules
Operating a watercraft can be compared with driving on unmarked highways and roads. To prevent collisions
or avoid other boaters, a system of operating rules must be followed. It’s not
only common sense... it’s the law!
Generally keep to your right and safely
avoid collisions by keeping a safe distance from other watercraft, boats,
people and objects.
The following illustration identifies different parts of a boat that are used
as directional reference points, the
bow being the front of the boat. The
port side of boat (left side) is visually
identifiable by a RED light off the bow,
and the starboard side (right side) by a
GREEN light.
smo2012-003-200
TYPICAL
Like a street traffic light, if you see a
RED light, STOP, give the right of way.
The other boat is to your right and it has
the right of way.
If you see a GREEN light, pass with
caution. The other boat is to your left,
you have the right of way.

Navigation System
Navigational aids, such as signs or
buoys, can assist you in identifying safe waters. Buoys will indicate
whether you should keep to the right

NAVIGATION RULES
buoy, or to which channel you can continue. They may also indicate whether
you are entering a restricted or controlled area such as a no wake or low
speed zone. They may also indicate
hazards or pertinent boating information. Markers may be located on shore
or on the water. They can also indicate speed limits, no power craft or
boating, anchorage and other useful
information. (The shape of each type
of marker will provide assistance).
Make sure you know and understand
the navigation system applicable to
the waterways where you intend to
use the watercraft.
Collision Avoidance
Do not release the throttle when trying to steer away from an obstacle.
Engine power and jet pump thrust is
required to steer the watercraft.
Always keep a constant lookout for
other water users, other boats or objects, especially when turning. Be alert
for conditions that may limit your visibility or block your vision of others.
Respect the rights of other recreationists and/or bystanders and always
keep a safe distance from all other
watercraft, boats, people and objects.
Do not wake or wave jump, ride the
surf line or attempt to spray or splash
others with your watercraft. You may
misjudge the ability of the watercraft
or your own riding skills and strike a
boat, watercraft or person.
This watercraft has the capability of
turning more sharply than other boats,
however, unless in an emergency, do
not negotiate sharp, high speed turns.
Such maneuvers make it hard for others to avoid you or understand where
you are going. Also, you and/or your
passenger(s) could be thrown from the
watercraft.
24
_______
Models with iBR
Unlike most other watercraft, this
PWC has a braking system (iBR).
When operating an iBR equipped watercraft, be aware that other boats following or operating in close proximity
may not be able to stop as quickly.
When at speed and the brake is first applied, a plume of water will shoot up in
the air behind the watercraft indicating
a braking manoeuvre.
It is important to inform the operator of
a watercraft who intends to follow in
a convoy formation of the braking and
maneuvering capability of your PWC,
what the plume of water indicates, and
that a greater distance should be maintained between both of you.
Stopping distance will vary depending
on initial speed, load, wind and water
conditions.
Although the preferable maneuver to
avoid an obstacle is to steer away while
applying throttle, the iBR can also be
used by fully braking and turning in the
appropriate direction to avoid the obstacle.

and varnish deposits which can
damage the fuel system.
NOTICE Do NOT use fuel from fuel
pumps labeled E85.
Use of fuel labeled E15 is prohibited by
U.S. EPA Regulations.
Alcohol fuel blending varies by country and region. Your vehicle has been
designed to operate using the recommended fuels, however, be aware of
the following:
– Use of fuel containing alcohol above
the percentage specified by government regulations is not recommended and can result in the following problems in the fuel system
components:
• Starting and operating difficulties.
• Deterioration of rubber or plastic
parts.
• Corrosion of metal parts.
• Damage to internal engine parts.
– Inspect frequently for the presence
of fuel leaks or other fuel system
abnormalities if you suspect the
presence of alcohol in gasoline exceeds the current government regulations.
– Alcohol blended fuels attract and
hold moisture which may lead to
fuel phase separation and can result
in engine performance problems or
engine damage.

Collisions result in more INJURIES AND DEATHS than any other type of accident for personal
watercraft (PWC).
TO AVOID COLLISIONS: SCAN CONSTANTLY for poeple, objects, and
other watercraft. Be alert for conditions that limit your visibility or block
your vision of others.
OPERATE DEFENSIVELY at safe speeds and keep a safe distance away from people, objects, and others
watercraft. • Do not follow directly behind PWCs or other boats. • Do not go near others to spray or splash them
with water. • Avoid sharp turns or other maneuvers that make it hard for others to avoid you or understand where
you are going.• Avoid areas with submerged objects or shallow water.
TAKE EARLY ACTION to avoid collisions. Remember, generally PWCs and other boats do not have brakes.
DO NOT RELEASE THROTTLE WHEN TRYING TO STEER away from objects - you need throttle to steer. Always check
throttle and steering controls for proper operation before starting PWC. Follow navigation rules and province / state
and local laws that apply to PWCs. See operator’s guide for more information.
To reduce the risk of SEVERE INJURY OR DEATH: WEAR A PERSONAL FLOTATION DEVICE (PFD).
All riders must wear a Coast Guard approved PFD that is suitable for personal watercraft (PWC) use.
WEAR PROTECTIVE CLOTHING. Severe internal injuries can occur if water is forced into body cavities as
a result of falling into water or being near jet thrust nozzle. Normal swimwear does not
adequately protect against forceful water entry into lower body opening(s) of males or
females. All riders must wear a wet suit bottom or clothing that privides equivalent
protection (see operator’s guide). Footwear, gloves, and goggles / glasses are
recommended.
KNOW BOATING LAWS. BRP recommends a minimum operator age of
16 years old. Know the operator age and training requirements for your province /
state. A boating safety course is recommended and may be required in your province /
state.
ATTACH ENGINE SHUT-OFF CORD (LANYARD) to PFD and keep it free from
handlebars so that engine stops if operator falls off. After riding, remove cord from
PWC to avoid unauthorized use by children or others.
RIDE WITHIN YOUR LIMITS AND AVOID AGGRESSIVE MANEUVERS to reduce the risk of
loss of control, ejection, and collision. This is a high performance boat - not a toy. Sharp
turns or jumping wakes or waves can increase the risk of back / spinal injury (paralysis),
facial injuries, and broken legs, ankles, and other bones. Do not jump wakes or waves.
DO NOT APPLY THROTTLE WHEN ANYONE IS AT REAR OF PWC - turn engine off or keep
engine at idle. Water and / or debris exiting jet thrust nozzle can cause severe injury.
KEEP AWAY FROM INTAKE GRATE while engine is on. Items
such as long hair, loose clothing, or PFD straps can become
entangled in moving parts resulting in severe injury or
drowning.
NEVER RIDE AFTER CONSUMING DRUGS OR ALCOHOL.

Before starting the engine, the operator and passenger(s) should always:
– Be properly seated on the watercraft
– Have a firm grip on a handhold
or hold on to the waist of the person in front of them
– Wear appropriate protective
clothing including a PFD approved by local authorities and
a wet suit bottom.
– On models with no iBR, the PWC
will move forward as soon as
engine is started.
NOTICE Ensure there is at least
90 cm (3 ft) of water under the lowest rear portion of the hull when all
passengers are aboard prior to starting the engine. Otherwise damage
to the propulsion system components may occur.
1. Attach the tether cord clip to your
PFD or to the wrist (wrist strap required).
2. Firmly grip the handlebar with your
left hand and place both feet on the
footboards.
3. Install the tether cord on the engine
cut-off switch.
4. Depress the engine START/STOP

How to Stop the Engine
Models with iBR
WARNING
To maintain watercraft directional
control, the engine should be
running until the watercraft is
stopped.
Models Without iBR
WARNING
The engine must stop running for
the watercraft to come to a full
stop.
smo2014-005-081_a
Turning the handlebar pivots the jet
pump nozzle which controls the watercraft direction. Turning the handlebar
to the right will turn the watercraft to
the right, turning the handlebar to the
left turns the watercraft to the left.
The throttle should be applied to turn
the watercraft.
All Models
The engine may be shut off using one
of two methods:
– Pressing the engine START/STOP
button, or
– Removing the tether cord from the
engine cut-off switch.
WARNING
Never leave the tether cord on the
engine cut-off switch when disembarking watercraft to prevent
theft, accidental engine starting,
and to avoid unauthorized use by
children or others.
WARNING
Throttle should be applied and
handlebar turned to change the direction of the watercraft. Steering
efficiency will differ depending on
the amount of throttle applied, the
number of passengers, the load,
the water conditions and the environmental factors such as the
wind.
Unlike a car, a watercraft needs some
throttle to turn. Practice in a safe area
applying the throttle and turning away
from an imaginary object. This is a
good collision avoidance technique.
WARNING
Directional control is reduced
when the throttle is released and
lost when the engine is off.
60
______________
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
The watercraft behaves differently
with a passenger and requires greater
skill. The passenger(s) should always
grip the seat strap, the molded grab
handle, or the waist of the person
ahead of them. Reduce speed and
avoid sharp turns. Avoid choppy water
conditions when carrying a passenger.
Tight Turns and Other Special
Maneuvers
Any tight turns or special maneuvers
that will cause the air inlet openings to
be kept under water for a prolonged
time, water will seep into the bilge.
Combustion engines need air to operate; consequently this watercraft cannot be totally watertight.
NOTICE If the air inlet openings
are kept under water, such as turning
constantly in tight circles, plunging
the bow through waves, or capsizing the watercraft, water may seep
into the bilge, which may cause severe damage to internal parts of the
engine. Refer to the WARRANTY
section contained in this guide.
O.T.A.S.TM System
(Off-Throttle Assisted Steering)
The O.T.A.S. (Off-Throttle Assisted
Steering) system provides additional
maneuverability in off-throttle situations.
If the driver releases the throttle to idle
when initiating a full turn, the O.T.A.S.
system will be electronically activated,
and will slightly increase engine speed
to allow completion of the turn.
When the handlebar is brought back
towards its center position, the throttle reverts to idle.
We recommend that you familiarize
yourself with this feature during your
first ride.
How to Engage Neutral
(Models with iBR)
WARNING
The drive shaft and impeller are
always turning when the engine is
running, even in neutral position.
Keep away from the propulsion
system of the watercraft.
When the watercraft is first started,
the iBR system automatically sets the
neutral position by default.
To engage neutral from forward position, tap the iBR lever.
To engage neutral from reverse position, release the iBR lever and throttle
lever.
How to Engage Forward
(Models with iBR)
To engage forward from neutral position, tap on the throttle lever. The
watercraft will accelerate forward.
To engage forward from reverse position, release the iBR lever, then tap the
throttle lever.
To re-engage forward from braking, simultaneously pull in the throttle lever
while releasing the iBR lever. The watercraft will accelerate forward after a
short delay.

How to Engage and Use
Reverse (Models with iBR)
Reverse can only be engaged between
idle speed and the threshold forward
speed of 7 km/h (4 MPH).
To engage reverse position, the iBR
lever on the LH handlebar must be
pulled in at least 25% of the lever
travel.
Available engine power is limited in
reverse mode, which limits reverse
speed.
WARNING
Only use reverse at slow speed
and for the shortest time possible.
Always ensure the path behind
is clear of objects, obstacles and
people.
When operating in reverse, turn the
handlebar in the opposite direction
that you want to move the rear of the
watercraft.
For example, to steer the rear of the
watercraft to port (left), turn the handlebar to starboard (right).

TYPICAL - iBR LEVER
1. iBR lever
2. Lever released position
3. Approximate 25% position
4. Operating range
When operating the iBR lever in reverse mode, the throttle lever can
be used to control engine RPM, and
thus the amount of reverse thrust produced.
By modulating throttle lever, reverse
thrust can be more precisely controlled. Too much RPM will create
water turbulence and reduce reverse
efficiency.
NOTE: Engine power will be limited

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
How to Engage and Use
Braking (Models with iBR)
WARNING
– The engine must be running to
be able to use the brake.
– The brake is only applicable
when operating in forward
movement, it has no effect on
rearward motion.
– The brake cannot prevent your
PWC from drifting due to current or wind.
The braking function can only be engaged during forward operation at or
above the threshold speed of 7 km/h
(4 MPH).
Braking is engaged and controlled
when the iBR lever on the LH handlebar is pulled in at least 25% of its travel.
on the iBR lever position. Braking can
thus be modulated by using only the
iBR lever.
Watercraft deceleration is proportional
to the braking force. The more the iBR
lever is pulled in, the greater the braking force applied.
NOTE: Be careful to gradually actuate
the iBR lever to adjust intensity of the
braking force and simultaneously release the throttle lever.
CAUTION When braking, riders must brace themselves against
the deceleration force to prevent
from moving forward on the watercraft and losing balance. The operator should always keep both hands
on the handlebars, and all passengers should maintain a firm grip of a
handhold or the waist of the person
in front of them.
WARNING
Stopping distance will vary depending on initial speed, load,
wind, number of riders, water conditions, and the amount of braking
power commanded by the operator. Always adjust your riding
style accordingly.
When the watercraft slows to less
than 7 km/h (4 MPH), braking mode
ends and reverse mode is engaged.
Release the iBR lever once the watercraft is stopped. Otherwise, a rearward movement will be initiated.

WARNING
Braking should be practiced in
open waters and at gradually increasing speeds in order to become fully familiar with the controls and watercraft handling characteristics.
CAUTION As the watercraft
slows to a stop, the wake created
by the watercraft will catch up and
tend to push the watercraft forward.
Ensure there are no obstacles or
bathers in the direction of travel.
When iBR lever is applied, the throttle
lever command is overridden and engine throttle control is now dependant
_______________
63
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
If the throttle lever is still pulled in
when releasing the iBR lever, the watercraft will accelerate forward after a
short delay. Acceleration will be proportional to the throttle lever position.
WARNING
If forward acceleration is not desired when the brake lever is released, release the throttle lever.
When at speed and the brake is first
applied, a plume of water will shoot up
in the air behind the watercraft which
may cause the operator of a following
watercraft to momentarily loose sight
of your PWC.
WARNING
– It is important to inform the
operator of a watercraft who
intends to follow in a convoy
formation, of the braking and
maneuvering capability of your
PWC, what the plume of water
indicates, and that a greater distance must be maintained between watercraft.
– Be aware that other boats following or operating in close
proximity may not be able to
stop as quickly.
Braking in a Turn
Braking can be initiated during a turn
using the iBR lever as previously described. Get ready to maintain your
balance while the wake is crossing
your PWC.
CAUTION As the watercraft
slows to a stop while braking in a
turn, the wake created by the watercraft will catch up and tend to push
the watercraft sideways. Be prepared to maintain balance as the
wake crossed the watercraft.
64
General Operating
Recommendations
Rough Water or Poor Visibility
Operation
Avoid operation in these conditions. If
you must do so, proceed with caution
using minimum speed.
Crossing Waves
The operator must grip the handlebar
firmly and keep both feet on the footboards.
The passenger must grip the handholds with both hands and keep both
feet on the footboards.
Reduce speed.
Always be prepared to steer and maintain your balance as necessary.
When going over waves, raise your
body slightly off the seat to absorb the
shocks with your legs.
When crossing wakes, always keep a
safe distance from watercraft ahead.
WARNING
When crossing wakes, slow down.
Operator and passenger(s) should
brace themselves and adopt a
semi-standing position to help
absorb the bumps. Do not jump
waves or wakes.
Stopping/Docking
When the throttle is released, the watercraft is slowed by water drag against
the hull. The stopping distance will
vary depending on the watercraft size,
weight, speed, water surface condition, presence and direction of wind
and current.
______________
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
When at speed and the brake is first
applied, a plume of water will shoot
up in the air behind the watercraft and
may cause the operator of a following
watercraft to momentarily loose sight
of your PWC.
WARNING
smo2014-005-083
The operator should practice in open
waters at various speeds to become
familiar with the stopping distances
under different conditions.
Models Without iBR
WARNING
The engine must stop running for
the watercraft to come to a full
stop.
Models with iBR
WARNING
Always practice braking in open
waters ensuring there are no watercraft or boats in your immediate
vicinity, especially astern. Other
users of the waterways may not be
able to maneuver or stop in time
to avoid you should you unexpectedly come to a full stop in front of
them.
The iBR system can also be used for
slowing down or for stopping the
watercraft more quickly, and for increasing maneuverability especially
when docking. Stopping using the
iBR system in a straight line and in a
turn should be practiced extensively
to become familiar with the handling
characteristics of the watercraft under
partial or full braking conditions.
It is important to inform the operator of a watercraft who intends to
follow in a convoy formation of the
braking and maneuvering capability of your PWC, what the plume of
water indicates, and that a greater
distance should be maintained between both of you.
The operator should also practice docking with an imaginary dock using the
various controls available (iBR lever
and throttle lever).
Release the throttle at a sufficient distance before the expected landing
area.
Reduce speed to idle.
Maneuver using a combination of the
iBR lever and throttle lever, shifting
to neutral, reverse, or forward as required.
Remember that when operating in reverse, steering direction is reversed.
Turning the handlebars to the left will
move the stern to the right when backing up, and vice-versa.
WARNING
Directional control is reduced
when the throttle is released
and/or when engine is off. Steering direction is reversed when operating the watercraft in reverse.

SPECIAL PROCEDURES
Jet Pump Water Intake and
Impeller Cleaning
WARNING
Keep away from intake grate while
engine is running. Items such as
long hair, loose clothing or personal flotation device straps can
become entangled in moving
parts.
Weeds, shells or debris can get caught
on the intake grate, drive shaft and/or
impeller. A clogged water intake may
cause troubles such as:
– Cavitation: Engine speed is high
but watercraft moves slowly due to
reduced jet thrust, jet pump components may be damaged.
– Overheating: Since the jet pump
operation controls the flow of water to cool the exhaust system, a
clogged intake will cause the exhaust to overheat and damage exhaust components.
A weed clogged area can be cleaned as
follows:
WARNING
If it is necessary to reach in to remove any foreign object caught in
the propulsion system, the tether
cord MUST BE REMOVED from the
engine cut-off switch

ENGINE EMISSIONS INFORMATION
NOTE: Maintenance, replacement, or
repair of the emission control devices
and systems may be performed by any
marine SI (Spark Ignition) engine repair
establishments or individual.
Manufacturer's
Responsibility
The owner/operator is not to, and
should not allow anyone to modify the
engine in any manner that would alter
the horsepower or allow emissions
levels to exceed their predetermined
factory specifications.
EPA Emission Regulations
Beginning with 1999 model year engines, PWC manufacturers of marine
engines must determine the exhaust
emission levels for each engine horsepower family and certify these engines
with the United States of America Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
An emissions control information label,
showing emission levels and engine
specifications, must be placed on each
watercraft at the time of manufacture.
Dealer's Responsibility
When performing service on all 1999
and more recent Sea-Doo watercraft
that carry an emissions control information label, adjustments must be
kept within published factory specifications.
Replacement or repair of any emission
related component must be executed
in a manner that maintains emission
levels within the prescribed certification standards.
Dealers are not to modify the engine in
any manner that would alter the horsepower or allow emission levels to exceed their predetermined factory specifications.
Exceptions include manufacturer's
prescribed changes, such as altitude
adjustments for example.
All 1999 and more recent Sea-Doo
watercraft manufactured by BRP are
certified to the EPA as conforming to
the requirements of the regulations for
the control of air pollution from new
watercraft engines. This certification
is contingent on certain adjustments
being set to factory standards. For
this reason, the factory procedure for
servicing the product must be strictly
followed and, whenever practicable,
returned to the original intent of the
design.
The responsibilities listed above are
general and in no way a complete listing of the rules and regulations pertaining to the EPA requirements on
exhaust emissions for marine products. For more detailed information on

MONITORING SYSTEM
A system monitors the electronic components of the EMS (engine management system) iBR (models with iBR),
and other components of the electrical
system. When a fault occurs, it sends
visual messages through the multifunction gauge and/or audible signals
through a beeper to inform you of a
particular condition.
When a minor or transient fault occurs, the fault message and beeper
will cease automatically if the condition that caused the fault does not exist anymore.
Releasing the throttle and letting the
engine return to idle speed may allow
normal operation to return. If this does
not work, try removing the tether cord
from the engine cut-off switch, waiting
5 minutes, then restarting.
The electronic system will react differently depending on the fault type. If a
severe failure occured, the engine may
not be allowed to be started. In other
cases, the engine will operate in limp
home mode (reduced speed).
When a fault occurs, see an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer as soon as possible for
inspection.
Fault Indicators and Message Display Information
The fault indicators and messages displayed in the multifunction gauge will inform
you of a particular condition or if an anomaly occurs.
If a fault indicator or a fault message comes ON in the multifunction gauge, contact
your authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
For information on usual function indicators, refer to MULTIFUNCTION GAUGE
