INTRODUCTION
Congratulations, you are now the
proud owner of a Sea-Doo personal
watercraft. You have selected one
of the most popular watercraft on
water. Your Sea-Doo® personal watercraft (PWC) can provide you and
your family or friends the opportunity
to fully enjoy the natural beauty and
excitement of the world’s waterways.
Welcome to fun on water!
With this new enjoyment and freedom however comes the responsibility of safety for yourself, the people
you lend your watercraft to, and other water users. Please follow all safety instructions and operate your watercraft with care. Be sure every operator of your watercraft fully understands the controls and operation of it
and the importance of courteous, responsible riding. Each operator has a
responsibility to ensure the safety of
other water users.
Some of the information contained in
this safety section may be new to you
while other information may be common sense or obvious. Irrespective,
we want you to have a safe, pleasurable riding experience, so please take
a few minutes of your time to completely read this short safety section.
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.
Failure to follow the instructions of this
safety section may result in severe injury or death.

____________
This safety section is for initial reference and its content is therefore limited. section It should be read in conjunction with the rest of this Operator’s Guide, the safety videocassette
and the on-product warning/caution labels. It is also strongly recommended
that operators obtain further information concerning “Boating Rules” from
a local Coast Guard Auxiliary, Powerboat Squadron or other local boating
authorities.
Many states or provinces have requirements regarding boating safety
and competence certificates. BRP
strongly recommends that any watercraft operator completes a safety and
competence boating course. Check
with your local Coast Guard or Power
Sail Squadron in your area for course
availability.
Some boating safety information can
be obtained from the Boating Safety/Regulation Web sites listed at the
end of this safety section.
Regulations concerning boating are
modified from time to time. It is advisable to periodically check the local
regulations wherever you plan to operate your watercraft.
We encourage you to have an Annual Safety Inspection of your personal
watercraft. Please contact your dealer for further details.

SAFETY CHECK LIST
To fully appreciate the pleasures, enjoyment and excitement of boating
there are some basic rules that should
be observed and followed by any
boater. Failure to follow this safety
information and safe boating rules
could result in injury, including the
possibility of death to you, the people
you lend your watercraft to, or other
water users.
General
BRP recommends a minimum operator age of 16 years old.
A boating safety course is recommended and may be required in your
province or state.
The performance of this watercraft
may significantly exceed that of other
craft you may have operated. Make
sure to become completely familiar
with the controls and operation of
the watercraft before embarking on
your first trip. If you have not had
the opportunity to do so, practice driving solo in a suitable traffic free area
and feel the 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.
The operator of the watercraft controls, and is responsible for the watercraft’s safe operation. He/she also
has the responsibility to require that
people, to whom he/she lends the
watercraft to, read and understand
this safety section Operator’s Guide,
the safety videocassette and the onproduct warning/caution labels.
Ensure that all operators know how to
swim and how to reboard the watercraft from the water.
Boarding in deep water can be strenuous. Practice in chest-deep water before operating or embarking your watercraft in deep water.
____________
A PWC will not self-right if capsized.
The operator must know the proper
righting procedure as explained in the
Operator’s Guide. Make sure engine
is off before rolling over the watercraft.
Your local Power Squadron or
state/provincial authorities will be
pleased to conduct a complementary
safety examination of your watercraft
and help you define your needs.
Never ride after consuming drugs or
alcohol or if you feel tired or ill.
When fueling, follow the safe boating
fueling instructions explicitly, as provided in your Operator’s Guide and
those given to you at 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.
Always stop the engine before fueling
and never allow anyone to remain on
the watercraft while fueling. Always
remember that fuel is flammable and
explosive under certain conditions.
Do not smoke or allow open flames or
sparks in the vicinity.
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.
Don’t forget that all persons must assist other boaters in an emergency.

GETTING UNDERWAY
To Wear
The operator must wear a Coast Guard
approved Personal Flotation Device
(PFD) that is suitable for PWC use.
An operator should have ready access
to shatterproof glasses should riding
conditions or personal preference warrant. Wind, water spray and speed
may cause a person’s eyes to water
and create blurred vision.
The operator of PWCs must wear protective clothing, including:
– a wet suit bottom or thick, tightly woven, snug fitting clothing
that provides equivalent protection. Thin bike shorts for example
would not be appropriate. 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 the lower body opening(s) of
males or females.
– footwear,
gloves
and
goggles/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.

Helmets
Some Important Considerations
Helmets are designed to offer some
degree of protection in case of impact 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,
for example, in the case of a collision.
Similarly, a helmet with a chinguard
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.
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?
12
___________
The Bottom Line
Since each option minimizes some
risks, but increases others, before
each ride you must decide whether to
wear a helmet or not 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.
Racing
Due to the nature of competition and
the proximity of other crafts, BRP recommends wearing a helmet in close
quarter PWC racing activities. Always
follow the helmet requirements of the
sanctioning organization.
To Bring
Always carry the regulatory safety
items and have them conveniently
on board available for use. Check
the local regulations or consult your
authorized Sea-Doo dealer. Such required safety items usually include,
without limitation, a sound signaling
device such as a whistle, a watertight
flashlight or approved flares, a buoyant heaving line, an anchor and rope*,
a bailer*, and an appropriate fire extinguisher*. The items marked with
a “*” are not required in Canada if all
persons on board a PWC are wearing
a PFD.
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
www.SeaDooManuals.net
___________
To Do
Read and understand all warning/caution labels on your Sea-Doo PWC,
your Operator’s Guide, all other safety
documents, and watch properly your
safety videocassette, before operating. Always keep in mind that the
““ symbol, the Warning symbol,
identifies an instruction which, if not
followed, may cause serious personal injuries including the possibility of
death.
Check local and federal boating laws
applicable to the waterways where
you intend to use your watercraft.
Learn the local rules of the road.
Know and understand the applicable
navigation system (such as buoys and
signs).
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 or inclement weather.
For safety reasons and proper care,
always perform “Daily Pre-Operation
Checks” as specified in your Operator’s Guide before operating your watercraft.
Keep the engine shut-off cord (safety lanyard) attached to the operator’s
PFD at all times 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. If operator
falls off the watercraft and safety lanyard is unattached, the watercraft will
not stop.

OPERATION
Collision Avoidance
Do not release throttle when trying to
steer away from objects. You need
throttle to steer.
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
craft, 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 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 could be
thrown from the watercraft.
Like any other craft, this PWC 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.
Maintaining or increasing speed may
be necessary to avoid a collision.
Safe Riding
Always keep in mind that as the throttle lever is released to idle position,
less directional control is available, and
as the engine is off, directional control
is lost. You need throttle to steer.
14
___________
Ride within your limits and level of
riding ability. Avoid aggressive maneuvers to reduce the risk of loss of
control, ejection and collision. Understand and respect the performance or
your watercraft.
Always ride responsibly and safely.
Use common sense and courtesy.
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 legs and other bones or more
serious injuries. Remain flexible and
avoid sharp turns.
Do not engage in stunts or jumps as
they could lead to serious injuries or
even death. For example, you could
hurt your back in landing from a jump
or you could loose control of the watercraft while attempting to perform a
stunt, and collide with your own watercraft or another obstacle. This watercraft offers many riding configurations,
and it is important that, for your safety, you strictly follow the instructions
on proper use of the watercraft in each
configuration as they ensure that your
riding position allows you to remain in
control of the watercraft at all times.
Any riding position that is not explicitaly recommended by the manufacturer could lead to a loss of control and
potentially serious injuries or death.
SAFETY INFORMATION
www.SeaDooManuals.net
___________
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.
PWCs are not designed for night-time
operation.
Never turn handlebar while someone
is nearby rear of watercraft. Keep
away from steering moving parts
(nozzle, linkage, etc.).
Never operate this watercraft with a
passenger onboard. This watercraft is
for one (1) operator only. No passenger. There is no seat to accommodate
a passenger and he could lack stability
and be thrown off, leading to possible
severe injuries.
Do not start or operate the watercraft
if anyone is seated on the deck or
swim platform, or is nearby in the water. Water and/or debris exiting jet
thrust nozzle can cause severe injury.
The operator should be properly standing or seated before starting or moving
the watercraft, and at all times when
watercraft is in motion.
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.
To prevent accidental starting, always
detach the safety lanyard from the watercraft during removal of any weeds
or debris from the intake grate.
It should be remembered that sun,
wind, alcohol, drugs, fatigue and illness, may impair your judgement and
reaction time.
On a PWC, never place your feet and
legs in the water to aid turning.
Maneuverability of the
Watercraft
Do not overload the watercraft or take
on a passenger. Overloading can affect maneuverability, stability and performance.
Avoid adding on accessories, or equipment which may alter your control of
the watercraft.
Around or near docks or piers, maneuver with great caution. When you
want to ride under a pier, only proceed
at very low speed and make sure you
have an adequate clearance.
Don’t forget: Ride smart from the
start and we all win!

in order to prevent accidental engine starting or to avoid unauthorized use by children or others or
theft.
______________________
www.SeaDooManuals.net
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 2 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 (DESSTM)
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.
2) Handlebar
The handlebar controls the direction of
the watercraft. Turning the handlebar
to the right steers the watercraft to the
right and inversely.
This watercraft features the O.T.A.S.
system. Refer to THROTTLE LEVER
for more information.
3) Handlebar Adjuster
 WARNING
Always stop engine and bring watercraft to a complete stop before
adjusting handlebar.

OIL TYPE
XP-S synthetic 2-stroke oil
(1)
_____________________
www.SeaDooManuals.net
47
CAUTION: (1)The XP-S synthetic
2-stroke oil is specially formulated
and tested for the severe requirements of the 787 RFI engines. Use
of any other brand two-stroke oil
may void the limited warranty. Use
only XP-S synthetic 2-stroke oil.
There is no known equivalent on
the market for the moment. If a
high quality equivalent were available, it could be used.
The XP-S synthetic 2-stroke oil provides superior lubrication, reduced engine component wear and oil deposit,
thus maintaining maximum-level performance and anti-friction properties.
This synthetic injection oil meets the
latest ASTM and JASO standards by
ensuring high biodegradability and low
exhaust smoke.
CAUTION: Always maintain a sufficient amount of injection oil in the
oil reservoir. Check and refill every
time you refuel if necessary. 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 should be bled. Immediately refer to an authorized Sea-Doo
dealer to have the oil injection system inspected.
CAUTION: Never use four-stroke
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
two-stroke engine oils or ashless
two-stroke engine oils. Avoid mixing different brands of API TC oil as
resulting chemical reactions may
cause severe engine damage.
CAUTION: DO NOT allow any
four-stroke oil to be used, or
put two-stroke oil into a used
four-stroke oil container. If any
four-stroke oil enters the system,
the entire oil system (pump, reservoir, lines, valves etc) must be thoroughly cleaned out.
Oil Injection System
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.
The use of a funnel is recommended
to pour the oil into the reservoir. Stop
filling as soon as oil appears at approximately 13 mm (1/2 in) from top of
reservoir. Do not overfill.

BREAK-IN PERIOD
CAUTION: Scrupulously follow the
instructions of this section. Failure
to do so may reduce the engine’s life
and/or performance.
With Sea-Doo watercraft powered by
Rotax® engines, a break-in period of
10 hours is required before continuous
operation at full throttle.
To achieve a good break-in, throttle
lever should not be depressed more
than 3/4, however, brief acceleration
and speed variations contribute to a
good break-in.
CAUTION: Continued wide open
throttle runs and prolonged cruising without speed variations should
be avoided, this can cause engine
damage during the break-in period.
10-Hour Inspection
It is highly recommended that after
the first 10 hours of operation, the
watercraft be checked by an authorized Sea-Doo dealer. This inspection
will also provide the opportunity to discuss the unanswered questions you
may have encountered during the first
hours of operation.
The 10-hour inspection is at the expense of the watercraft owner.

install safety lanyard on its post to start
the electric bilge pump. If some water
remains in bilge, tilt the watercraft to
the rear and unscrew drain plugs to
completely empty the bilge.
Secure bilge drain plugs.
 WARNING
Make sure drain plugs are properly
secured prior to launching the watercraft in water.
Water Flow in Cooling
System (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 cooling system hoses. This could
cause cooling system overheating. To
ensure it is properly working, do the
following prior to using the 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 cooling system 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 cooling system
might lead to engine components
damage.
NOTE: When water freezes, damage
to engine components should not occur because of water expansion, but
because it prevents full flow of cooling water.
– Either wait until ice melts or pour
some hot water to cooling system components and to engine.
Then, perform the flushing operation again to make sure water
properly flows out of jet pump. If
you need assistance, refer to an
authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
 WARNING
Do not use any electrical heating
device to heat the cooling system.
Electrical devices may generate
sparks that would ignite fuel vapors that might be present in the
bilge causing a fire or an explosion.
– Ensure to drain bilge if water is
present.

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.
This watercraft is designed for one
person only.
F22L1AY
 WARNING
– Never allow a passenger onboard. This watercraft is for an
operator only.
– Passenger does not have a stable seat and could lack stability
and be thrown off, which could
lead to severe injuries.
 WARNING
Whenever the engine is to be started, the operator should always be
properly standing or sitting on the
watercraft and be wearing protective clothing including a Coast
Guard approved PFD and a wet
suit bottom.
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.
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.
Variable Trim System
(if so equipped)
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.
______________________
www.SeaDooManuals.net
When first using the watercraft, 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.
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.

_____________________
www.SeaDooManuals.net
55
 WARNING
Throttle should be applied and
handlebar turned to change the
direction of the watercraft. Steering efficiency will differ depending
on 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
F22L1BY
LEFT TURN
Directional control is reduced
when the throttle is released and
lost when engine is off.
Keeping your feet spread apart and
leaning in while turning may help to
keep your balance when riding in
“vert“ configuration.
CAUTION:
Combustion engine
needs air to operate; consequently this watercraft cannot be totally
watertight. 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 section.
F22L1CY
RIGHT TURN
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.
In “vert“ operation, the steering pole
can be moved up and down while driving to suit various riding position.
NOTE: Moving steering pole up or
down does not change the watercraft
direction.
56
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. The O.T.A.S. system is
electronically activated and slightly increases engine speed under a
pre-programmed RPM when the driver initiates a full turn. When handlebar
is brought back to its center position,
the throttle reverts to idle.

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.
Engine Emissions
Information
Manufacturer's Responsibility
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 vehicle at the time
of manufacture.
Dealer's Responsibility
When performing service on all 1999
and more recent Sea-Doo watercrafts
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.
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
All new 1999 and more recent
Sea-Doo watercraft manufactured
by Bombardier Recreational Products
Inc. (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.

Grease lubrication point(s) of propulsion system as explained in MAINTENANCE section.
Fuel System
Sea-Doo fuel stabilizer (or equivalent),
can be added in fuel tank to prevent fuel deterioration and gumming. Follow
manufacturer’s instructions for proper
use.
86
______________________
www.SeaDooManuals.net
CAUTION: Fuel stabilizer should
be added prior to engine lubrication
to ensure fuel system components
protection against varnish deposits.
 WARNING
Always stop the engine before refueling. Fuel is flammable and explosive under certain conditions.
Always work in a well ventilated
area. Do not smoke or allow open
flames or sparks in the vicinity. Fuel tank may be pressurized, turn
cap slowly when opening. Never
use an open flame to check fuel
level. When fueling, keep watercraft level. Do not overfill or 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. Periodically verify fuel system.
Cooling System Flushing and
Engine Internal Lubrication
Refer to procedure in POST-OPERATION CARE.
Battery
Contact your authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
Antifreezing Protection
In cool regions where freezing point
may be encountered, cooling system
should be filled with pure antifreeze.
CAUTION: Antifreeze must be fed
in cooling system. Otherwise remaining water will freeze (approximately 500 mL (.5 U.S. qt) in tuned
pipe water jackets). This operation
requires a good technical knowledge of the cooling system path.
If antifreezing is not performed
adequately, any water left in the
engine/exhaust system could freeze
and cause severe damage. We
strongly recommend this operation
to be performed by an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer.
CAUTION: Use only undiluted antifreeze (100% concentration). The
pre-mixed antifreeze available from
Bombardier Recreational Products
Inc. is not suitable for this particular application. Its concentration
will be reduced when mixed with
remaining water trapped in water
jackets. Always use ethylene glycol
antifreeze containing corrosion inhibitors specifically recommended
for aluminum engines. Never use
antifreeze for RV (recreational vehicles).
NOTE: When available, it is recommended to use biodegradable
antifreeze compatible with internal
combustion aluminum engines. This
will contribute to protect the environment.
NOTE: The engine will not have to
run during this operation but should
have been ran before, to exhaust as
much water as possible, from cooling
system components.
NOTE: This procedure requires approximately 2 L (2.1 U.S. qt) of antifreeze.
Procedure for Engine and Tuned
Pipe (upper part)
Remove rear access panel to gain access to drain hoses.
Before filling cooling system jackets
with antifreeze, some hoses have to
be plugged to prevent drainage.

Place a container at rear of watercraft
to collect the water/antifreeze mix.
______________________
www.SeaDooManuals.net
Remove hose pinchers from engine
drain hoses.
NOTE: Most of the antifreeze will
drain out when removing the hose
pinchers. ALWAYS DISPOSE OF ANTIFREEZE IN ACCORDANCE WITH
YOUR LOCAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS.
Remove the temporary hose from
engine and reinstall the water supply
hose to the cylinder head.
Remove hose pincher from engine
outlet hose.
CAUTION: Do not reuse water/antifreeze mixture that came out of
the engine. The concentration is
unknown and could be too low to
offer adequate protection.
Procedure for Tuned Pipe
(lower cone)
Disconnect hose as shown.
Reconnect hose to its T-fitting.
Procedure for the Complete System
NOTE: Although most of the antifreeze drained out, it still has mixed
with any water remaining in the water jackets. This will prevent freezing
problems.
At preseason preparation, flush out
the remaining antifreeze from cooling
system prior to using the watercraft.
The following steps should be performed to provide the watercraft enhanced protection.
Clean the bilge with hot water and
detergent or with bilge cleaner. Rinse
thoroughly. Lift front end of watercraft to completely drain bilge. If any
repairs are needed to body or to the
hull contact your authorized Sea-Doo
dealer. For paint touch up to mechanical parts use BOMBARDIER spray
paint.
Anticorrosion Treatment
Wipe off any residual water in the engine compartment.
Spray BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant
or equivalent over metallic components in engine compartment.

 WARNING
Do not lubricate the safety lanyard
post.
F22E06Y
1. Disconnect hose from T-fitting
Raise the hose as high as it will go and
hold in this position.
Insert a funnel into the hose then pour
700 mL (.7 U.S. qt) of undiluted antifreeze (100% concentration) while
keeping the hose as high as possible.
CAUTION: It is important to keep
the hose as high as possible while
pouring antifreeze in order to ensure that it reaches the end of the
exhaust pipe and avoid severe damage.
Lubricate the throttle cable with BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant or equivalent.
Reinstall engine cover and rear access
cover.
Final Steps
Apply a good quality marine wax to the
body.
The engine cover should be left partially opened during storage. This will
prevent engine compartment condensation and potential corrosion.

www.SeaDooManuals.net
89
CAUTION: To prevent permanent
deformation of the kart seat foam,
never leave any object on it during
storage.
If the watercraft is to be stored outside, cover it with an opaque tarpaulin
to prevent sun rays and grime from affecting the plastic components, watercraft finish as well as preventing dust
accumulation.
CAUTION: The watercraft should
never be left in water for storage.
Never leave the watercraft stored in
direct sunlight. Never completely
seal watercraft in a plastic wrap.
Ventilation must be provided to
avoid condensation and potential
corrosion.
Preseason Preparation
Use the following chart.
Since technical skills and special tools
are required, some operations should
be performed by an authorized SeaDoo dealer.
 WARNING
Only perform procedures as detailed in this guide. It is recommended that the assistance of an
authorized Sea-Doo dealer be periodically obtained on other components/systems not covered in this
guide. Unless otherwise specified, engine must not be running
and the safety lanyard must be removed from its post for all maintenance procedures. Components
inside engine compartment may
be hot. When components condition seems less than satisfactory,
replace with genuine BRP parts or
approved equivalents.

YOUR EMISSION CONTROL WARRANTY RIGHTS
AND OBLIGATIONS
The California Air Resources Board and BRP US Inc. (“BRP”)* on behalf of Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. are pleased to explain the emission control
system warranty on your model-year 2005 Sea-Doo 3D RFI personal watercraft
equipped with RFI engine. In California, new personal watercraft engines must
be designed, built and equipped to meet the State’s stringent anti-smog standards. BRP must warrant the emission control system on your personal watercraft engine for the periods of time listed below provided there has been no
abuse, neglect or improper maintenance of your personal watercraft engine.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor or fuel
injection system, the ignition system and catalytic converter. Also included may
be hoses, belts, connectors and other emission-related assemblies.
Where a warrantable condition exists, BRP will repair your personal watercraft
engine at no cost to you including diagnosis, parts and labor provided that such
work is performed by an authorized BRP dealer.
Manufacturer’s Limited Warranty Coverage
This emission warranty covers model year 2005 Sea-Doo 3D RFI personal watercraft certified and produced by BRP for sale in California, that are originally
sold in California to a California resident or subsequently warranty registered to
a California resident. The BRP limited warranty conditions for Sea-Doo personal
watercraft are still applicable to these models with the necessary modifications.
Select emission control parts of your 2005 Sea-Doo 3D RFI personal watercraft
are warranted from the date of delivery to the first retail consumer for a period
of 4 years, or for 250 hours of use, whichever occurs first. However, warranty
coverage based on the hourly period is only permitted for personal watercraft
equipped with the appropriate hour meters or their equivalent. If any emissionrelated part on your engine is defective under warranty, the part will be repaired
or replaced by BRP.
