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 videocassette provided with the watercraft,
to read this Operator’s Guide, the safety handbook and familiarize yourself with
the contents. These Guides contain pertinent information which, if followed, will
provide you with the necessary knowledge to help you fully enjoy the pleasures
of this craft.
We strongly recommend that any watercraft operator 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 passenger safety and the safety
of other water users. Please follow all safety instructions and drive 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.

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.
For any questions pertaining to the
warranty and its application, consult

◆SAFETY WARNING ____________________________
◆ To fully appreciate the pleasures,
enjoyment and excitement of boating there are some basic rules that
MUST be observed and followed by
any boater. Some rules may be new
to you while 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 before you operate your craft. 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.
◆ Information in this Guide is limited.
It is strongly recommended that
you obtain further boating information from the local Coast Guard or
Power Squadron. We further recommend you take a boating safety
course. Check local and federal
boating laws applicable to the waterways where you intend to use
the craft. Learn the local rules of
the road.
◆ Become completely familiar with
the controls and operation of the
craft before taking on a passenger(s) or embarking on a trip. If you
have not had the opportunity to do
so with your dealer, practice driving
solo in a suitable area and feel the
response of each control. Be fully
familiar with all controls before fully
advancing the throttle.
◆ The performance of this craft may
significantly exceed that of other
craft you may have operated.
Therefore, use of this craft by a
novice or inexperienced operator is
not recommended.
◆ Observe and follow all on-product
warning labels and the content of
this Guide.
◆ Operator and passenger(s) should
wear suitable eye and body protection, as well as deck shoes or booties. Long hair or loose clothes
should be securely attached to prevent snagging in the water intake.
◆ Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices (PFD) must be worn
when riding the watercraft.
◆ Operation of this craft by a minor or
disabled person is NOT recommended.
◆ Do not operate the craft after consuming alcohol or drugs.
◆ Always perform the pre-operation
checks as specified in this Guide.
This includes:
– Attaching the safety lanyard.
– Verification of throttle lever and
steering movement.
– Verification of start/stop button
operation.
– Oil and fuel levels.
– Adequate water depth.
– Required boating equipment.
(Know how to use each).
◆ The operator and passenger(s)
must be properly seated before
starting or moving the craft.
◆ Wave or wake jumping can be dangerous and in many regions illegal.
◆ Most boating accidents result from
the failure of the operator to keep a
lookout for other water users or
other potential hazards. Keep a safe
distance from other boats. Do not
attempt to splash others with your
wake. Do not ride on the surf line.
◆ To prevent accidental starting or unauthorized use, always detach the
safety lanyard from the boat, especially during maintenance, cleaning
of the intake grate, or when swimmers are nearby.
5
www.SeaDooManuals.net
smo9701a.bk : smo9701b.fm5 Page 6 Monday, November 3, 1997 9:54 AM
◆ Ensure that all passengers know
how to reboard the craft from the
water.
◆ Always have an observer while
towing a skier.
◆ Know the waters in which the craft
is to be operated. Current, tides,
rapids, shallow water, hidden obstacles etc., can affect safe operation.
◆ When boating, apply the principle
of 1/3 fuel to destination, 1/3 back
and 1/3 reserve fuel supply.
◆ Maintain the craft and equipment in
top condition at all times. Adhere to
the prescribed maintenance schedules. Use a protective cover when
not in use. After salt or foul water
use, the craft should be thoroughly
rinsed and protected from corrosion. If you suspect water ingestion
into the engine, contact your dealer
for proper servicing.
◆ The bilge must be kept clean of oil,
water or other foreign materials. Do
not carry spare fuel and inflammable liquids in any of the storage or
engine compartments.
◆ Avoid adding on accessories, carrying equipment or passengers
which may alter the craft's configuration or balance.
◆ Only perform servicing procedures
which are detailed in this Guide.
Further assistance or information
can be obtained from your dealer. In
many instances proper tools and
training is required for certain servicing or repair procedures.
◆ Gasoline fumes are inflammable
and explosive. Always adhere to
the fueling procedure contained in
this Guide and those given to you
by the marina.
◆ Always keep in mind that as the
throttle lever is released to idle position, less directional control is
available. To turn the craft, both
steering and throttle are necessary.
This craft has the capability of turning more sharply than other boats,
however, unless in an emergency,
do not negotiate sharp, high speed
turns.
◆ Like any other boat, this craft has
no brake. Stopping distance will
vary depending on initial speed,
load, wind, and water conditions.
Practice stopping and docking in a
safe area to have an idea of how
long it will take to stop the craft under varying conditions.
◆ Prolonged exposure to the sun,
wind, etc., causes fatigue and may
affect your reaction time.
◆ Do not overload the craft or take on
more passengers than designated
for the intended type of boating.
Load and altitude will also affect
craft performance.
◆ Riding with a passenger(s) makes
the craft handle differently and requires greater skill.
◆ Proceed with caution and at very
low speeds in shallow water.
Grounding or abrupt stops may result, or debris may be picked up and
be jettisoned rearward to people or
property.
◆ As the "skipper" of a boat you are
responsible for damage to other
boats caused by the wake of your
craft. Respect no wake zones.
◆ Respect the rights of other water
users and the environment. Allow
no one to throw refuse overboard.
◆ Do not operate the craft in inclement weather.
◆ This watercraft is not designed for
night-time operation.

smo9701a.bk : smo9701b.fm5 Page 7 Monday, November 3, 1997 9:54 AM
◆ Lifting the craft requires special
equipment and experience. Do not
attempt to lift the craft without
such experience or equipment.
◆ Respect the safety and comfort of
your passenger(s) and persons being towed on skis or other water
toys.
◆ Always carry the regulatory required
safety items on board. Check with
local regulations or your dealer.
◆ 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.
Drive prudently and have fun.

FUEL AND LUBRICATION _______________________
Fueling Procedure
◆
Recommended Fuel
WARNING
Follow these safe boating fueling
instructions explicitly.
Do not allow anyone to remain on the
watercraft.
Do not smoke or allow open flames in
the vicinity.
Have a fire extinguisher close at hand.
Do not insert the spout too far in filler
neck.
Pour fuel slowly so that air can escape
from the reservoir and prevent fuel
flowback.
Do not lean watercraft while fueling.
Fill fuel tank to bottom of filler neck.
Do not overfill. Fully tighten fuel tank
cap and wipe off any fuel spillage.
◆
WARNING
Do not lean the watercraft to allow more fuel to fill the fuel tank.
The tank design makes provision
for fuel expansion of about 5%. If
this area is filled, fuel will expand
and may come out through fuel
vent hose. Keep watercraft horizontal while fueling. Always stop
the engine before refueling. Fuel
is inflammable and explosive under certain conditions. Always
work in a well ventilated area. Do
not smoke or allow open flames
or sparks in the vicinity. Never
top off the fuel tank and leave watercraft in the sun. As temperature increases, fuel expands and
might overflow. Always wipe off
any fuel spillage from the watercraft.
Use regular unleaded gasoline with 87
octane (Ron + Mon/2) specification.
NOTE: Look on service station
pump sticker for octane specification. Do not mix oil with fuel except at
engine break-in. Refer to BREAK-IN
PERIOD. Always check injection oil
reservoir level when refueling.
The use of good quality fuel is necessary. A well known fuel brand is highly
recommended.
'
-
CAUTION
Never experiment with other fuels or fuel ratios. Never use fuel
containing alcohol, methanol or
similar products including naphtha. The use of unrecommended
fuel can result in watercraft performance deterioration and damage to critical parts in the fuel
system and engine components.
Recommended Oil
All Models Except SPX/GSX/GTX/
XP
Use BOMBARDIER ROTAX INJECTION OIL which is available from authorized dealers. It is a blend of specially selected base oils and additives
which provides outstanding lubrication, engine cleanliness and minimum
spark plug fouling.

CAUTION
Never use 4-cycle petroleum or
synthetic motor oil and never mix
these with outboard motor oil.
Do not use NMMA TC-W, TC-W2
or TC-W3 outboard motor oils or
other ashless type 2-cycle oil.
Avoid mixing different brands of
API TC oil as resulting chemical
reaction may cause severe engine damage.
SPX/GSX/GTX/XP Models Only
Use only BOMBARDIER ROTAX FORMULA XP-S synthetic injection oil (or
the equivalent synthetic oil).
This fully synthetic oil will provide outstanding cleanliness, less friction and
wear for greater engine performance
and durability.
-
CAUTION
The 787 engine requires the use
of Bombardier Rotax Formula
XP-S SYNTHETIC injection oil (or
the equivalent synthetic oil). The
use of any other non-synthetic oil
may cause severe damage to internal parts of the engine.

All Models
-
CAUTION
Always maintain a sufficient
amount of injection oil in the oil
reservoir. Check and refill every
time you refuel. Do not overfill. If
the engine runs out of oil, severe
engine damage will occur. If the
oil reservoir is found almost
empty, air can enter in the system
and it must be bled. Immediately
refer to an authorized dealer to
have the oil injection system inspected.
This watercraft features an oil injection system which does not require
manual fuel/oil mixing.
A sufficient amount of injection oil
should be maintained in the reservoir.

BREAK-IN PERIOD_______________________________
Engine
With Bombardier-Rotax® watercraft
engines, a break-in period is required
before operating the engine at full
throttle. Engine manufacturer recommendation is about 10 operating
hours.
During this period, maximum throttle
should not exceed 3/4, however, brief
acceleration and speed variations contribute to a good break-in. Continued
wide open throttle accelerations, prolonged cruising speeds and overloading the engine are detrimental during
the break-in period.
To assure additional protection during
the initial engine break-in, BOMBARDIER ROTAX INJECTION OIL should
be added in the fuel tank for the first
full fuel tank filling only.

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 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.
F01J3Y
TYPICAL
◆
WARNING
Whenever the engine is to be
started, the operator and any
passenger(s) should always be
sitting on the watercraft.
Reverse
(GTS/GTI/GTX Models)
The selector lever is used for either
driving the watercraft forward or backward. With the lever pushed in, the
watercraft is in forward position, with
the lever fully pulled out, reverse position is obtained. The lever middle position is neutral. These 3 functions are
produced by the mean of a gate,
which is installed on jet pump venturi
housing. This gate directs the water
flow to get the proper function.
◆
WARNING
Selector lever should only be
used when the engine is idling.
Ensure lever is pushed in and
locked.
Variable Trim System (VTS)
(SPX/GSI/GSX/XP Models)
The variable trim system (VTS) changes the angle of the jet pump nozzle to
provide the operator with a fast, effective system to compensate for load,
thrust, riding position and water conditions. Correctly adjusted, it can improve handling, reduce porpoising,
and position the watercraft at its best
riding angle to attain maximum performance.
When first using the craft, the operator should become familiar with the
use of the variable trim system (VTS)
at varying speeds and water conditions. A mid-range trim is generally
used when cruising. Experience alone
will dictate the best trim for the conditions. During the watercraft break-in
period, when lower speeds are recommended, it is an excellent opportunity to gain familiarity of trim adjustment and its effects.
53
www.SeaDooManuals.net
smo9701a.bk : smo9701b.fm5 Page 54 Monday, November 3, 1997 9:54 AM
When the nozzle is positioned in an
upward angle, the water thrust directs
the bow of the watercraft upward.
This position is used to optimize high
speed.

and operator body position and movement (body English), will determine
the degree and sharpness of the craft
turn. Porpoising can be reduced or
eliminated if the nozzle is downward

must be applied and handlebar
turned to change the direction of
the watercraft. Steering efficiency will differ with carrying loads
and water conditions.
The more the throttle is applied while
turning the handlebar, the sharper the
turn will be.
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.

POST-OPERATION CARE ________________________
General Care
Should any water be present in the
hull, unscrew the drain plug and tilt the
watercraft to the rear in order to allow
water to flow out.
Wipe up any remaining liquid in the engine compartment (bilge, engine, battery, etc.) with clean dry rags (this is particularly important in salt water use).
Remove the watercraft from the water every day to prevent marine organisms growth.
Leave the seat partially opened (except HX). This will avoid engine compartment condensation and possible
corrosion.
HX Model
Open rear cover partially.
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.
Proceed as follows:
◆
All Models
NOTE: When the watercraft is
stored with seat partially opened
and without a tarpaulin, unscrew the
drain plug in order to avoid water build
up in the bilge during rainfall.
'
Additional Care for Foul
Water or Salt Water
When the watercraft is operated in
foul water and particularly in salt water, additional care must be taken to
protect the watercraft and its components. Rinse bilge area with fresh water.

SPECIAL PROCEDURES _________________________
Engine Overheating
If the monitoring beeper sounds continuously, stop engine immediately.
Perform Jet Pump Water Intake and
Impeller Cleaning procedure shown
in this section.
Flush cooling system, refer to POSTOPERATION CARE.
If engine still overheats, refer to an authorized dealer for servicing.
Jet Pump Water Intake
and Impeller Cleaning
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 engine, a clogged intake
will cause the engine to overheat
and damage engine internal components.
A weed clogged area can be cleaned
as follows:
GTS/GTI/GTX Models Only
If the afore mentioned method does
not work, the following can be performed:
– With engine running, put selector
lever in reverse position and vary
throttle quickly several times.
– Retry.
On-Beach Cleaning
Place a cardboard or a carpet beside
the watercraft to prevent scratching
when turning the watercraft for cleaning.
◆
WARNING
Always remove safety lanyard
cap from switch to prevent accidental engine starting before
cleaning the jet pump area.
Rotate the watercraft counterclockwise (seen from rear) to its left side
for cleaning. Rotating watercraft counterclockwise eliminates the possibility
of residual water in the tuned pipe entering the engine and causing engine
damage.
Max. 90°
In-Water Cleaning
Rock the watercraft several times
while repeatedly pressing start/stop
button for short period without starting engine. Most of the time, this will
result in letting the weeds fall from the
intake area. Start engine and make
sure water flows out from bleed outlet(s) and watercraft operates properly.
F01L450
Clean the water intake area. If the system is still clogged, refer to an authorized dealer for servicing.
66
www.SeaDooManuals.net
smo9701a.bk : smo9701b.fm5 Page 67 Monday, November 3, 1997 9:54 AM
-
CAUTION
Inspect water intake grate for
damage. Refer to an authorized
dealer for repair as necessary.
-
CAUTION
Avoid watercraft operation in
weeded areas. If unavoidable,
vary watercraft speed. Weeds
tend to entangle more at steady
speed and at slow speed.
Capsized Watercraft
SP Series
The watercraft is designed so that if it
is turned over, it should not remain
capsized due to its self-righting capability.
After roll over, always tip watercraft
counterclockwise (maximum 90°) before restarting engine.
GS Series/GTS/GTI/GTX/HX/XP
Models
The watercraft is designed so that it
should not turn over easily, due to its
longer and larger dimensions and its
full vee hull. Also two sponsons
mounted on the side of the hull assist
watercraft stability. If it turns over, it
will remain capsized due to its non
self-righting capability. To return the
watercraft upright rotate it clockwise
(seen from rear) by pushing on the
right side then handhold the side of
water intake HOLE and use your
weight to complete the rotation of watercraft.
-
CAUTION
Always refer to decal located on
stern of watercraft before tipping
over.
F02L1ZY
Submerged Watercraft
If the watercraft is submerged and engine is water-flooded, it is strongly recommended that the watercraft be serviced by an authorized dealer immediately.
In the event the engine cannot be serviced within a few hours, remove
spark plug cables and connect them
on the grounding device.
◆
WARNING
Never crank engine with spark
plugs removed unless spark plug
cables are connected to the
grounding device.
Remove spark plugs and dry them
with a clean and dry cloth.
Cover spark plug holes with a rag.
Crank engine to allow water to escape
from spark plug openings.
Spray BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant
into spark plug holes.
Crank engine again.

the watercraft stored in direct
sunlight. UV rays will dull finishes.
The seat should be partially left
o p e n e d d u r in g s t o r a g e ( e x c e p t
HX/XP). This will avoid engine compartment condensation and possible
corrosion.
NOTE: If the watercraft is stored
outside with seat partially opened
and without a tarpaulin, unscrew the
rear drain plug in order to avoid water
build up in the bilge during rainfall. Tilt
the watercraft to the rear so that water can flow out of floorboard.
