Doin’it on your new SEA-DOO watercraft
Congratulations, you are now the proud owner of a SEA-DOO personal watercraft.
Whether you are an experienced boater or are new to the sport of boating, we ask
you to take the time to view the safety videocassette provided with the watercraft,
to read this Operator’s Guide, the Safety Handbook and on-product warning/caution
labels and familiarize yourself with the contents. These manuals contain pertinent
information which, if followed, will provide you with the necessary knowledge to
help you fully enjoy the pleasures of this watercraft.
We strongly recommend that all watercraft operators complete a safety boating
course. Check with your local Coast Guard or Power and Sail Squadron in your
area for course availability. More serious boaters may want to obtain Chapman
Piloting by Elbert S. Maloney, available at most book stores.
When introducing your family or friends to the sport, be sure they fully understand
the controls and operation of the watercraft and the importance of courteous,
responsible riding.
Each operator has a responsibility to ensure the safety of his/her passenger(s)
and of other water users. Please follow all safety instructions and operate your
craft with care.
We encourage you to have an Annual Safety Inspection of your watercraft. Please
contact your dealer for further details.
Finally, we urge you to visit your dealer regularly for regular and safety maintenance as well as any watercraft accessories you may require.
Have fun and... Bon Voyage.
Please keep this guide and Safety Handbook on board at all times. These manuals along with the Safety Videocassette should remain with the watercraft
at time of resale.

FOREWORD
The Operator’s Guide and Safety Handbook have been prepared to acquaint
the owner/operator or passenger with
this personal watercraft and its various
controls, maintenance and safe riding
instructions. Each is indispensable for
the proper use of the product and
should be kept in a waterproof bag with
the watercraft at all times.
Make sure you read and understand the
content of the Operator’s Guide and
Safety Handbook.
For any questions pertaining to the
warranty and its application, consult
the WARRANTY section in this guide,
and/or an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
This guide uses the following safety
alert symbol in conjunction with signal
words to indicate a potential personal
injury hazard.
WARNING
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could
result in death or serious injury.
CAUTION
Indicates a potentially hazardous
situation which, if not avoided,
may result in minor or moderate injury. When used without the safety
alert symbol , potential hazard
exists for property damage only.
NOTE: Indicates supplementary information needed to fully complete an instruction.
Although the mere reading of such information does not eliminate the hazard, the understanding and application
of the information will promote the correct use of the watercraft.
The information and components/
system descriptions contained in this
guide are correct at the time of writing.
Bombardier Inc. however, maintains a
policy of continuous improvement of
its products without imposing upon itself any obligation to install them on
products previously manufactured.
Because of its ongoing commitment
to product quality and innovation,
Bombardier reserves the right at any
time to discontinue or change specifications, designs, features, models or
equipment without incurring obligation.

full detail or exact shape of the parts.
However, they represent parts that
have the same or similar function.
It is understood that this guide may be
translated into another language. In
the event of any discrepancy, the English version shall prevail.
Specifications are given in the SI metric system with the SAE U.S. equivalent in parenthesis. Where precise accuracy is not required, some conversions
are rounded off for easier use.

SAFETY MEASURES
General
Operation
To fully appreciate the pleasures,
enjoyment and excitement of boating there are some basic rules that
should be observed and followed by
any rider. Some rules may be new
to you or covered in the Sea-Doo
Safety Handbook or Safety Videocassette, others may be common
sense or obvious… irrespective, we
ask that you please take a few minutes of your time to read these safety instructions completely together
with your Safety Handbook before
you operate your watercraft. Failure to follow this safety information and safe boating rules could
result in injury, including the possibility of death to you, your passenger(s), or other water users.
Bombardier recommends not to operate a watercraft under the age of
16.
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
with your authorized Sea-Doo dealer,
practice driving solo in a suitable area
and feel the response of each control. Be fully familiar with all controls
before applying throttle above idle
speed. As its operator, you control
and are responsible for the watercraft’s safe operation.
Always carry the regulatory required
safety items on board. Check the local regulations or consult your authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
Make sure that all users of the watercraft read and understand all onproduct warnings.
Always perform the pre-operation
checks as specified in this guide.
Operator and passenger(s) should at
all times wear a coast guard approved
personal flotation device (PFD) that is
suitable for personal watercraft.
Operator and passenger(s) should
wear protective clothing. Severe internal injuries can occur if water is
forced into body cavities of males or
females as a result of falling into water or being near jet thrust nozzle.
Wet suit bottom (or thick, tightly woven, snug fitting clothing that provides equivalent protection. Thin bike
shorts for example would not be
appropriate), footwear, gloves and
goggles/glasses are recommended.
Always keep in mind that as the
throttle lever is released to idle position, less directional control is available. To turn the watercraft, both
steering and throttle are necessary.
Like any other craft, this watercraft
has no brake. Stopping distance will
vary depending on initial speed, load,
wind, and water conditions. Practice
stopping and docking in a safe, traffic
free area to have an idea of how long
it will take to stop the watercraft under varying conditions. Do not release throttle when trying to steer
away from objects. You need throttle
to steer. Do not use the watercraft’s
reverse, if so equipped, to stop.
Ensure that all passengers know
how to swim and how to reboard
the watercraft from the water.
The operator and passenger(s) should
be properly seated before starting
or moving the watercraft, and at all
times when watercraft is in motion.
7
smo2003-003a.book Page 8 Tuesday, August 27, 2002 9:23 AM
Do not start or operate the watercraft if someone is seated on the sun
deck (if so equipped) or swim platform, or is nearby in the water. The
watercraft’s jet thrust can cause injury. Always accelerate slowly.
To prevent accidental starting or unauthorized use, always detach the
safety lanyard from the watercraft especially when swimmers are boarding or nearby, or during removal of
any weeds or debris from the intake
grate.
Never turn handlebar while someone
is nearby rear of watercraft. Keep
away from steering moving parts
(nozzle, side vanes, linkage, etc.).
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.
Ride within your limits and avoid aggressive maneuvers to reduce the
risk of loss of control, ejection and
collision.
Riding with a passenger(s) or pulling
other crafts, tubes, skies or wakeboards makes the watercraft handle
differently and requires greater skill.
Do not overload the watercraft or
take on more passengers than designated for the particular watercraft.
Overloading can affect maneuverability, stability and performance.
Avoid adding on accessories, or
equipment which may alter the configuration, balance or control of the
watercraft. The watercraft maybe
fitted with tow eyelets which can be
used to attach a ski rope. However,
do not use these eyelets or the watercraft’s cleats to tow a parasail. Severe injury or watercraft damage
may occur.
In shallow water, proceed with caution and at very low speeds. Grounding or abrupt stops may result in injury. Debris may also be picked up
and be thrown rearward by the jet
pump onto people or property.
8
Respect no wake zones, the rights
of other water users and the environment. As the “skipper” and owner
of a watercraft you are responsible
for damage to other crafts caused by
the wake of your watercraft. Allow
no one to throw refuse overboard.
Remember that a watercraft is not
designed for night time operation.
Remember, gasoline fumes are
flammable and explosive. Always
adhere to the fueling procedure
contained in this guide and those
given to you by the marina. Always
verify fuel level before use and during the ride. Apply the principle of
1/3 fuel to destination, 1/3 back and
1/3 reserve fuel supply. Do not carry
spare fuel or flammable liquids in
any of the storage or engine compartments.
Combustion engine needs air to operate; consequently this watercraft
can not be totally watertight. Any
maneuvers such as figure eights
etc., that cause the upper deck to be
under water may cause severe engine problems due to water ingestion.
Refer to SPECIAL PROCEDURES and
LIMITED WARRANTY contained in
this guide.
Due to the close proximity of other
racers, it is recommended that an
approved personal watercraft helmet be used during racing events.
Read and follow all instructions and
warnings provided with the helmet.
Never ride after consuming drugs or
alcohol or if you feel tired or ill. Operate your watercraft prudently and
have fun.
Don’t forget that all persons must
assist other boaters in an emergency.
smo2003-003a.book Page 9 Tuesday, August 27, 2002 9:23 AM
Maintenance
Only perform servicing procedures
which are detailed in this guide. Further assistance or information can
be obtained from your authorized
Sea-Doo dealer. In many instances
proper tools and training is required
for certain servicing or repair procedures.
Maintain the watercraft and equipment in top condition at all times. Adhere to the prescribed maintenance
schedules. An annual inspection of the
watercraft is always a good recommendation that should be followed.
Always use spark plug cable grounding device when removing spark
plugs (if so equipped).
The bilge should be kept clean of oil,
water or other foreign materials.
Do not attempt to lift the watercraft
without special equipment and training.
The engine and the corresponding
components identified in this guide
should not be utilized on product(s)
other than for those they were designed. Maintenance procedures and
specified tightening torque should be
strictly adhered to. Never attempt repairs unless the appropriate tools are
available. These watercrafts are designed with parts dimensioned in
both the metric and the imperial systems. When replacing fasteners,
make sure to use only those recommended by Bombardier. If required,
contact your authorized Sea-Doo
dealer for further servicing information.

CONTROLS, COMPONENTS AND
INSTRUMENTS FUNCTIONS
1) Safety Lanyard
(engine cut-off cord)
The safety lanyard cap should be securely snapped onto its post to be fully
operational.
Pulling the safety lanyard cap from its
post stops the engine operation.
WARNING
While engine can be stopped using the engine start/stop button,
good habits recommend that the
safety lanyard also be disconnected when stopping.
Attach the safety lanyard to the operator’s Personal Flotation Device (PFD)
and snap the cap to the post to be able
to start the engine.
Two short beeps indicates the system
is ready to allow engine starting. Otherwise, refer to the TROUBLESHOOTING section for the coded signals chart.

28
WARNING
Should the engine be stopped, watercraft directional control is reduced. Always disconnect safety
lanyard when watercraft is not in
operation in order to prevent accidental engine starting or to avoid
unauthorized use by children or
others or theft.
If engine is not started within 5 seconds after installing the safety lanyard
on its post, 4 very short beeps every 3
second interval will sound for approximately 4 hours to remind you to start
the engine or to remove safety lanyard. Afterwards, the beeps will stop.
The same will occur when safety lanyard is left on its post 5 seconds after
engine is stopped.
Always ensure safety lanyard is not
left on its post after engine is stopped.
IMPORTANT: Leaving the safety lanyard on its post when engine is not
running will slowly discharge the battery.
Digitally Encoded Security
System (DESS)
The safety lanyard cap specifically contains an electronic circuit that gives it
a unique electronic serial number. This
is the equivalent of a conventional key.
This safety lanyard cannot be used on
another watercraft and conversely, the
one from another watercraft cannot be
used on your watercraft.
However, the DESS brings a great flexibility. You can buy an additional safety
lanyard and have it programmed for
your watercraft.
To have additional safety lanyard, refer
to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
smo2003-003a.book Page 29 Tuesday, August 27, 2002 9:23 AM
Limited-Speed Operation
The 4-TEC models also offers a special
safety lanyard — the SEA-DOO Learning KeyTM — which electronically limits
the speed of the watercraft to approximately 55 km/h (35 MPH) therefore
enabling first time users and less experienced operators to learn how to operate the watercraft while gaining the
necessary confidence and control.
Adjustment (if so equipped)
The handlebar height can be adjusted
to suit rider preferences.
To perform this adjustment, turn the
knob underneath the handlebar.

Water Flow in Exhaust
Manifold
(only when temperature is
below or close to freezing
point)
In Northern areas, if watercraft is to be
used when temperature is below or
close to freezing point (0°C (32°F)) or if
watercraft was left unused while temperature was below or close to freezing point, water may be frozen in the
supply hose going to the exhaust manifold. This could cause exhaust cooling
system overheating. To ensure it is
properly working, do the following prior to using thoe watercraft:
– The procedure is to be performed
with watercraft out of water.
– Connect a garden hose to the flushing connector at jet pump.
– Perform the flushing operation as explained in POST-OPERATION CARE.
– Ensure water flows out of jet pump.
Otherwise, water is frozen in supply
hose and restricts water flow. Do
not operate the watercraft in this
condition.
NOTE: Pay attention that some water
will also flow out of exhaust outlet.
Make sure water is effectively flowing
out of jet pump.
CAUTION: Operating watercraft with
frozen water in supply hose might
lead to engine components damage.
NOTE: When water freezes, no damage to engine components will occur
as water expands but it may cause
damage by preventing full flow of cooling water.
– Either wait until ice melt or pour some
hot water on supply hose going to exhaust manifold. Then, perform the
flushing operation again to make sure
water properly flows out of jet pump.
If you need asssitance, refer to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
WARNING
Do not use any electrical heating
device to heat the hose. Electrical
devices may generate sparks that
would ignite fuel vapors that might

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
Always perform the PRE-OPERATION
CHECKS before operating the watercraft. Become thoroughly familiar
with all controls and the function of
each. Should any control or instruction not be fully understood, refer to
an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
Principle of Operation
Propulsion
The engine is directly coupled to a
drive shaft which, in turn, rotates an
impeller. This impeller is accurately adjusted in a housing where the water is
drawn up from underneath the watercraft. Then the water flows through
the impeller to a venturi. The venturi
accelerates the water and produces
thrust to move the watercraft. Depressing the throttle lever increases
engine speed and therefore watercraft
speed.
F18J06Y
TYPICAL
WARNING
Whenever the engine is to be started, the operator and passenger(s)
should always be properly sitting
on the watercraft and be wearing
protective clothing including a Coast
Guard approved PFD and a wet suit
bottom.
54
WARNING
Keep away from intake grate while
engine is on. Items such as long
hair, loose clothing or personal flotation device straps can become
entangled in moving parts resulting in severe injury or drowning.
The shift lever should be in the forward
position in order for the watercraft to advance.
Neutral and Reverse
WARNING
Never use jet pump components as
a supporting point to board the watercraft. Shift lever should only be
used when the engine is idling and
watercraft is completely stopped.
Never rev the engine at high RPM
in reverse. Do not use reverse to
stop the watercraft. Only use reverse at slow speed and for the
shortest time possible. Always ensure the path behind is clear of objects and persons including children playing in shallow water.
To find the neutral, set in reverse then
push back until the watercraft stops
moving backwards.
The reverse gate will be in the middle
position, directing half of the thrust toward the front of the watercraft to minimize watercraft movement.
WARNING
When the watercraft is in neutral
position, the drive shaft and impeller are still turning.

WARNING
Shift lever should only be used when
the engine is idling and watercraft is
completely stopped. Do not use reverse to stop the watercraft.
Steering
The watercraft behaves differently with
a passenger and requires greater skill.
The passenger should always grip the
seat strap or grab handle. Reduce
speed and avoid sharp turns. Avoid
choppy water conditions when carrying
a passenger.
Off-Power Assisted Steering
System (O.P.A.S.)
The Off-Power Assisted Steering (O.P.A.S.)
system uses a dual side vanes design
that assists the watercraft steering in deceleration, to redirect watercraft path
when steering is turned after throttle has
been released or engine stopped.
The side vanes on the rear sides of the
hull, turn as the steering is turned to
assist the watercraft turning. At first,
carefully experiment turning with this
system.
F18J09Y
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 and inversely. The throttle should
be applied to turn the watercraft.
WARNING
Throttle should be applied and
handlebar turned to change the direction of the watercraft. Steering
efficiency will differ depending on
the number of passengers, load,
water conditions and 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/or when
engine is off.

1. Side vanes turn following steering
movement
When engine is running at approximately 75% or more RPM, the side vanes are
automatically raised to upper position
since they are not required at that vehicle speed range.
Between 30% and 75% engine RPM,
side vanes are gradually raised from
lower position to upper position.
smo2003-003a.book Page 57 Tuesday, August 27, 2002 9:23 AM

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 foul
water 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 proper
care such as: watercraft rinsing, exhaust 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.
62
Exhaust Cooling System
Flushing
General
Flushing the exhaust cooling system
with fresh water is essential to neutralize corroding effects of salt or other
chemical products present in water. It
will help to remove sand, salt, shells or
other particles in water jackets and/or
hoses.
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.
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.

smo2003-003a.book Page 65 Tuesday, August 27, 2002 9:23 AM
SPECIAL PROCEDURES
Monitoring System
To assist you when using the watercraft, a system monitors the electronic
components of the EMS (engine management system) and other components of the electrical system. When a
fault occurs, it sends visual messages
through the information center and/or
audible signals through a beeper to inform you of a particular condition. Refer to the INFORMATION CENTER for
the displayed messages and the TROUBLESHOOTING section for the beeper
coded signals chart.
When minor faults occur, the fault and
message/beeper will disappear automatically if the condition does not exist
anymore.
Releasing throttle and letting the engine returning at idle speed may allow
normal operation to come back. If it
does not work, try removing and reinstalling the safety lanyard on its post.
The electronic system will react differently depending on the fault type. In
severe failure, the engine might not be
allowed to be started. In other cases,
the engine will operate in limp home
mode. See below.
When a fault occurs, see an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer as soon as possible for
inspection.
Limp Home Modes
Besides the signals as seen above, the
EMS may automatically set default parameters to ensure the adequate operation of the watercraft if an electronic
component is not operating properly.
Depending on the severity of the malfunction, the watercraft speed may be
reduced and not allowed to reach its
top speed as usual.
In this mode, it may be necessary to
depress the throttle quite slowly to allow engine RPM to increase and operate the watercraft to go back home.
These performance-reduced modes
allow the rider to go back home which
would not be possible without this advanced system.
Engine Overheating
CAUTION: If the monitoring beeper
continuously sounds, stop engine as
soon as possible.
Check coolant level. Refer to LIQUIDS.
If engine still overheats, continue the
following procedure.
Perform JET PUMP WATER INTAKE
AND IMPELLER CLEANING procedure
described in this section.
When back to shore, flush exhaust cooling system, refer to POST-OPERATION
CARE.
If engine still overheats, refer to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer for servicing.
Engine Low Oil Pressure
CAUTION: If the monitoring beeper
continuously sounds, stop engine as
soon as possible.
Turn off engine as soon as possible.
Check oil level and refill.
Restart the engine. If this does not correct the situation, do not run the engine further. Refer to an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer for servicing.
CAUTION: Running engine with low
oil pressure may severely damage
the engine.

smo2003-003a.book Page 66 Tuesday, August 27, 2002 9:23 AM
Jet Pump Water Intake and
Impeller Cleaning
WARNING
Keep away from intake grate while
engine is on. Items such as long
hair, loose clothing or personal flotation device straps can become
entangled in moving parts resulting in severe injury or drowning.
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:
1. Cavitation: Engine speed is high but
watercraft moves slowly due to reduced jet thrust, jet pump components may be damaged.
2. Overheating: Since the jet pump
operation controls the flow of water
to cool the exhaust system, a
clogged intake will cause the engine to overheat and damage engine internal components.
A weed clogged area can be cleaned
as follows:
In-Water Cleaning
Rock the watercraft several times while
repeatedly pressing engine start/stop
button for short period without starting
engine. Most of the time, this will remove the blockage. Start engine and
make sure watercraft operates properly.
If system is still blocked, move the watercraft out of the water and remove
blockage manually.
If the aforementioned method does not
work, the following can be performed:
– With engine running and before applying throttle, put shift lever in reverse position and vary throttle quickly several times.
– Repeat procedure if necessary.
66
On-Beach Water Cleaning
WARNING
Always remove safety lanyard cap
from its post to prevent accidental
engine starting before cleaning the
jet pump area.
Place a cardboard or a carpet beside the
watercraft to prevent scratching when
turning the watercraft for cleaning.
Rotate the watercraft to any side for
cleaning.
F18L13Z
Clean the water intake area. If the system is still clogged, refer to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer for servicing.
CAUTION: Inspect water intake grate
for damage. Refer to an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer for repair as necessary.
Capsized Watercraft
The watercraft is designed so that it
should not turn over easily. Also two
sponsons mounted on the side of the
hull assist watercraft stability. If it turns
over, it will remain capsized.
smo2003-003a.book Page 67 Tuesday, August 27, 2002 9:23 AM
WARNING
When watercraft is capsized, do
not attempt to restart the engine.
Operator and passengers should
always wear approved personal
flotation devices.
To return the watercraft upright, ensure the engine is off and the safety
lanyard is NOT on its post then grab
the inlet grate, step on bumper rail and
use your weight to rotate the watercraft in any direction.
The 4-TEC engine features a tip-over
protection system (T.O.P.S.™). When
watercraft tips over, engine is automatically stopped, then a valve is
closed to prevent engine oil to flow
back in intake system.
When watercraft is returned to its normal operating position, engine can
then be started normally.
CAUTION: If watercraft has been capsized for more than 5 minutes, do not
attempt to crank engine to avoid water ingestion that would damage the
engine. See an authorized Sea-Doo
dealer as soon as possible.
CAUTION: If engine does not crank,
do not attempt to start engine anymore. Otherwise engine could be
damaged. See an authorized Sea-Doo
dealer as soon as possible.
As soon as possible, check for presence of water in the bilge. Drain as
necessary when back to the shore.
Submerged Watercraft
To limit damages to the engine, perform the following procedure as soon
as possible.
Drain bilge.
If it was submerged in salt water, spray
bilge and all components with fresh water using a garden hose to stop the salt
corroding effect.
CAUTION: Never try to crank or start
the engine. Water trapped in intake
manifold would flow towards the
engine and may cause severe damage to the engine.
Bring the watercraft to be serviced by
an authorized Sea-Doo dealer as soon
as possible.
CAUTION: The longer the delay before you have the engine serviced,
the greater the damage will be to the
engine.
Water-Flooded Engine
CAUTION: Never try to crank or start
the engine. Water trapped in intake
manifold would flow towards the
engine and may cause severe damage to the engine.
Bring the watercraft to be serviced by
an authorized Sea-Doo dealer as soon as
possible.
CAUTION: The longer the delay before you have the engine serviced,
the greater the damage will be to the
engine. Failure to have the engine
properly serviced may cause severe
engine damage.
Fuel-Flooded Engine
When the engine does not start after
several attempts, the engine may be
fuel-flooded. Proceed as follows.
To prevent fuel to be injected and also
to cut the ignition at the engine cranking, proceed as follows.
While engine is stopped, fully depress
throttle lever and HOLD for cranking.
Crank engine several times.
If it does not work:
Pull engine cover upward to remove it.

Disconnect ignition coil connectors.
WARNING
When disconnecting coil from
spark plug, always disconnect coil
from main harness first. Never
check for engine ignition spark
from an open coil and/or spark
plug in the engine compartment
as spark may cause fuel vapor to
ignite.
Remove ignition coils.
CAUTION: Ensure there is no dirt in
coil holes prior to removing the spark
plugs. Otherwise, dirt would fall into
cylinder and will damage the internal
components.
Remove spark plugs.
NOTE: After untightening the spark
plugs, a coil may be used to pull the
spark plugs out. Simply bring the coil
down to spark plug and “hook” it to
then extract spark plug.
Install new spark plugs if available or dry
spark plugs using a rag.
Cover spark plug holes with a rag.
Crank engine several times while
keeping throttle fully depressed.
Reinstall spark plugs and ignition coils.
Install clean dry spark plugs if possible.
Reconnect ignition coil connector.
NOTE: Prior to inserting the ignition coil to
its location, apply some Molykote 111
grease (P/N 413 707 000) around the seal
area that touches the spark plug hole. After installation, ensure the seal seats properly with the engine top surface.
To reinstall engine cover, push it downward until it snaps.
Start engine as explained above. If engine continues to flood, see an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
68
CAUTION: Never run engine without
supplying water to the exhaust cooling system when watercraft is out of
water.
Towing the Watercraft in
Water
Special precautions should be taken
when towing a SEA-DOO watercraft in
water.
Maximum recommended towing speed
is 24 km/h (15 MPH).
When towing your watercraft in water,
pinch the water supply hose from the
impeller housing to the exhaust manifold with a large hose pincher (P/N 529
032 500).
F01B23Y
This will prevent the exhaust cooling
system from filling which may lead to
water being injected into and filling the
engine. Without the engine running
there isn’t any exhaust pressure to carry the water out the exhaust outlet.
CAUTION: Failure to do this may result in damage to the engine. If you
must tow a stranded watercraft in
water and do not have a hose pincher, be sure to stay well below the
maximum towing speed of 24 km/h
(15 MPH).

watercraft manufactured by Bombardier
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.
