FLUSHING AND LUBRICATION
GENERAL
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, intercooler (if so
equipped), exhaust manifold, tuned pipe) and/or
hoses.
Cooling system flushing and engine internal lubrication 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.
CAUTION: Failure to flush cooling system,
when necessary, will severely damage engine
intercooler and/or exhaust system. Never
flush a hot engine. Make sure engine operates
during entire procedure.

Open water tap immediately after engine is
started to prevent overheating.
Run the engine about 3 minutes at a fast idle
around 3500 RPM.
Ensure water flows out of drain lines (engine
crankcase, engine cylinder and air compressor
(DI models) while flushing. Otherwise, clean the
lines.
CAUTION: Never run engine longer than 5 minutes. Drive line seal has no cooling when watercraft is out of water.
Spray BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant through air

WATERCRAFT CLEANING
Clean the bilge with hot water and mild 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, touch
up paint and Gelcote® repair kit are available. Replace damaged labels/decals.
Wash the body with soap and water solution (only
use mild detergent). Rinse thoroughly with fresh
water. Remove marine organisms from the hull.
Apply a nonabrasive wax.
CAUTION: Never clean fiberglass and plastic
parts with strong detergent, degreasing agent,
paint thinner, acetone, etc.
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 must never be left in
water for storage. Never leave the watercraft
stored in direct sunlight.
ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDED
PROTECTION
All 2-Stroke Models
In cool regions (where freezing point may be encountered), cooling system should be filled pure
antifreeze.
CAUTION: Antifreeze must be fed in cooling system. Otherwise remaining water will
freeze. If antifreezing is not performed adequately engine/exhaust system may freeze
and cause severe damage. Always use ethylene glycol antifreeze containing corrosion
inhibitors specifically recommended for aluminum engines.
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).

Section 02 MAINTENANCE
Subsection 04 (STORAGE)
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.
All 2-Stroke Models except DI
NOTE: This procedure requires approximately
2.5 L (2.6 U.S. qt) of antifreeze.
Hose Pinchers Installation
Some hoses have to be plugged to prevent draining, before filling cooling system jackets with the
antifreeze.

Most of the antifreeze will drain out when removing the hose pinchers. Use a container to recover
it. DISPOSE ANTIFREEZE AS PER YOUR LOCAL
LAWS AND REGULATIONS.
NOTE: Although antifreeze will mainly drain out,
the antifreeze has mixed with the water that was
possibly trapped in the water jackets and thus preventing freezing problems.
At preseason preparation, drain the remaining antifreeze from cooling system prior to using the watercraft. Ensure no hose pincher was forgotten at
storage.

NOTE: Although antifreeze will mainly drain out,
the antifreeze has mixed with the water that was
possibly trapped in the water jackets and thus preventing freezing problems.
At preseason preparation, drain the remaining antifreeze from cooling system prior to using the watercraft. Ensure no hose pincher was forgotten at

4-TEC Engines
Refer to the COOLING SYSTEM section.
Antifreeze should be replaced for the storage period to prevent antifreeze deterioration.
Make sure to perform an antifreeze density test.
CAUTION: Improper antifreeze mixture might
allow freezing of the liquid in the cooling system if vehicle is stored in area where freezing
point is reached. This would seriously damage
the engine. Failure to replace the antifreeze
for storage may allow its degradation that
could result in poor cooling when engine will
be used.
All Models
ANTICORROSION TREATMENT
Wipe off any residual water in the engine compartment.
Spray BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant over all
metallic components in engine compartment.

Lubricate the throttle cable with BOMBARDIER
LUBE lubricant.
4-TEC Models
Apply an anticorrosion product on drive shaft. Refer to PROPULSION.
All Models
The seat should be partially left opened during
storage (the engine cover for the XP DI models).
This will avoid engine compartment condensation
and possible corrosion.
