NOTE: Refer to 1998 Sea-Doo Shop Manual (P/N
219 100 068) or Shop Manual Supplement (P/N
219 100 070) when servicing Sea-Doo watercraft.
Engine Draining
Check engine drain hose (lowest hose from engine). Make sure there is no sand or other particles in it and that it is not obstructed so that water
can leave the engine. Clean hose and fitting as
necessary.
-
CAUTION
Water in the engine drain hose must be free
to flow out, otherwise water could be trapped
in the engine. Should water freeze in the engine, severe damage will occur. Always
check the engine drain hose for obstructions.
F02E05A
TYPICAL
1. Engine drain hose
Care should be taken for the GTX-RFI, the SPX
and all models equipped with a 947 engine since
water partially remains inside engine and cannot
be totally drained. Refer to Additional Recommended Protection further in this bulletin.

GTX-RFI Model
Disconnect the water supply hose used to cool
the magneto. It features a quick coupling type fitting. Press both tabs and pull fitting to disconnect
hose which is located at the bottom of the magneto cover near the engine support.

WARNING
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. Always wipe
off any fuel spillage from the watercraft. Always turn the fuel valve to OFF position.
Cooling System Flushing
Flush the cooling system with fresh water to prevent salt, sand or dirt accumulation from clogging
up water passages.

1. Disconnect this hose
Engine Internal Protection
Water should flow out the fitting (magneto cooling circuit) and hose (crankcase heat exchanger).
Engine must be lubricated to prevent corrosion on
internal parts.
Start the engine first then immediately open the
water tap.
Run the engine about 3 minutes at a fast idle
around 3500 RPM.
-
CAUTION
Never run engine longer than 5 minutes. The
drive line seals have no cooling when watercraft is out of the water.

1. Make sure water flows out of fitting and hose
Fuel System
Add Sea-Doo Fuel Stabilizer (P/N 413 408 600) to
the fuel tank to prevent fuel deterioration and, if
so equipped, carburetor gumming. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions for proper use.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer should be added to the fuel
before engine lubrication, to ensure that the carburetor, if so equipped, is protected against varnish deposits.
Verify fuel system. Check fuel lines and carburetor, if so equipped, for leaks. Replace damaged
hoses or clamps if necessary.
Remove plug from air intake silencer cover.
Lubricate the engine to prevent corrosion on internal parts by spraying BOMBARDIER LUBE (P/N
293 600 016) through the hole provided on the air
intake silencer cover.
On models equipped with 947 engine, detach air
silencer and spray BOMBARDIER LUBE directly
into carburetors.

Lubricate the engine for one minute. After approximately half a minute, close fuel valve to run engine out of fuel and turn off water flow to the
engine.
-
-
CAUTION
Do not lubricate excessively. Immediately
stop when a slight movement is noticed in
the rubber boot.
CAUTION
When engine begins to run irregularly because of fuel starvation, immediately stop
water flow before engine dies. Severe engine damage could result if not done in this
order.
Stop the engine.
Reinstall the plug in air intake silencer cover (except models equipped with a 947 engine).
Propulsion System
Jet Pump
Lubricant in impeller shaft reservoir should be
drained out and the reservoir cleaned.
SPX/GS/GTS/GTI Models
Refill with 80 mL (2.7 oz) of Sea-Doo jet pump
synthetic oil (P/N 293 600 011).
GSX Limited/XP Limited/GTX Limited
Refill with 120 mL (4 oz) of Sea-Doo jet pump synthetic oil (P/N 293 600 011).
GTX-RFI Model
Refill with 100 mL (2.9 oz) of Sea-Doo jet pump
synthetic oil (P/N 293 600 011).
Refer to the Shop Manual PROPULSION SYSTEM section.

ALL MODELS EXCEPT XP LIMITED
-
CAUTION
Never leave any clothing, tool or other objects near PTO flywheel and seal carrier.
Seal Carrier
XP Limited
Lubricate mid bearing of drive system at seal carrier grease fitting with synthetic grease.
CAUTION
Use only SEA-DOO jet pump oil or equivalent synthetic gear oil, otherwise component
service life could be reduced. Do not mix oil
brands or types.
PTO Flywheel
All Models Except XP Limited
Lubricate PTO flywheel at grease fitting with synthetic grease (P/N 293 550 010).

GSX Limited
Lubricate seal carrier of thru hull fitting.
Anticorrosion Treatment
Wipe off any residual water in the engine compartment.
Spray BOMBARDIER LUBE over all metallic components in engine compartment.
Lubricate the throttle cable with BOMBARDIER
LUBE lubricant.
NOTE: A cable luber can be used on throttle cable
end to inject BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant.
The seat should be partially left open during storage. For the XP Limited, leave the hood partially
open.
This will avoid condensation and possible engine
corrosion.
NOTE: If the watercraft is stored outside, always
cover it with a tarpaulin. Remove the rear drain
plug(s). Tilt the watercraft to the rear so that water
can flow out.

Battery
For battery removal, cleaning and storage, refer to
the 1998 Sea-Doo Shop Manual ELECTRICAL
SYSTEM, section 08-03.
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 kits 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.
-
Additional Recommended Protection
In cool regions (where temperature below freezing point may be encountered), antifreeze solution should be added to the cooling system.
-
CAUTION
Always use ethylene-glycol antifreeze containing corrosion inhibitors specifically recommended for aluminum engines.
NOTE: The engine will not have to run during this
operation.
Install a hose pincher to engine drain hose.
CAUTION
Never clean apparent 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 and dust accumulation.
-
CAUTION
The watercraft must never be left in the water for storage. Never leave the watercraft
stored in direct sunlight.

F06E05A
Temporarily install one short piece of hose to engine water inlet fitting.
Insert a funnel into hose. Pour antifreeze mixed
with water in the engine until the solution is visible in the water return hose.
Remove temporary hose and reconnect engine
water return hose to engine.
Remove hose pinchers.
All Models
Most of the antifreeze will drain out when removing 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 flowed to mix with water that
was possibly trapped in cooling system cavities
and thus preventing freezing problems.
Care should be taken for the GTX-RFI, the SPX
and all models equipped with a 947 engine since
water partially remains inside engine and cannot
be totally drained.
NOTE: For pre-season preparation, drain antifreeze from cooling system prior to launching
boat in water as explained above.
