___________
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, your passenger(s),
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 or taking on a passenger(s). 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
passenger(s) and people, to whom
he/she lends the watercraft to, read
and understand this safety section
Operator’s Guide, the SAFETY VIDEO
and the on-product warning/caution
labels.
Ensure that all passengers 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 and passengers 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 and passenger(s) must
wear a Coast Guard approved Personal Flotation Device (PFD) that is suitable for PWC use.
An operator and the watercraft’s passenger(s) 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 and passenger(s) 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
___________
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 VIDEO, 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 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 DESS key from its
post to avoid unauthorized use by children or others. If operator falls off the
watercraft and safety lanyard is unattached, the watercraft will not stop.
____________ SAFETY INFORMATION ___________

OPERATION
Collision Avoidance
Safe Riding
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 and/or your
passenger(s) 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.
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.
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.
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.
Do not use the watercraft’s reverse, if
so equipped, to stop. You or your passenger(s) could be violently ejected
forward onto the handlebars or even
off the watercraft onto the hazard.
PWCs are not designed for night-time
operation.

SAFETY INFORMATION
___________
Operator/Passenger
Awareness
Manoeuvrability of the
Watercraft/Towing
The watercraft operator has the responsibility to inform passenger(s) of
safety measures.
Never turn handlebar while someone
is nearby rear of watercraft. Keep
away from steering moving parts
(nozzle, side vanes, linkage, etc.).
Do not start or operate the watercraft
if anyone is seated on the sun deck,
if so equipped, or swim platform, or is
nearby in the water. Water and/or debris exiting jet thrust nozzle can cause
severe injury.
The operator and passenger(s) should
be properly seated before starting or
moving the watercraft, and at all times
when watercraft is in motion. All passenger(s) should be instructed to use
the handholds or seat straps provided, or in the alternative on a PWC, to
hold the waist of the person in front of
them.
When accelerating on a PWC with a
passenger(s), whether from a complete stop or while underway, always
do so progressively. Fast acceleration
may cause your passenger(s) to loose
their balance or grip and fall rearward
off the watercraft. Make sure that
your passenger(s) know of, or anticipate, any rapid acceleration.
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 DESS key from its post
when swimmers are boarding or nearby, or 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.
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 your control of
the watercraft.
The watercraft may be fitted with tow
eyelets which can be used to attach a
ski rope.
Riding with a passenger(s) or pulling
a tube, skier or wakeboarder makes
the watercraft handle differently and
requires greater skill.
Always respect the safety and comfort
of your passenger(s) and person being towed on skis, wakeboard or other
water products.
Always carry an observer when pulling
a tube, skier or wakeboarder, proceed
with only as much speed as required
and follow the observer’s instructions.
Unless absolutely necessary, do not
make tight, sharp turns. Keep a safe
distance from the docks, other swimmers, craft or objects.
Use a tow rope of sufficient length
and size and make sure it is adequately secured to your watercraft. While
some craft are equipped or can be fitted with a specially designed towing
mechanism avoid installing a tow pole
on a PWC. It can become a hazard
should someone fall on it.
Be advised that serious injury can result if the tow rope becomes slack during a tight turn or when circling. The
rope could become wrapped around
the neck or limbs of a person that has
fallen in the water.
____________ SAFETY INFORMATION ___________
15
With wakeboard and/or rack installed,
operate with extra caution: never perform agressive maneuvers including
spin-out; never jump waves; use common sense and limit speed. Otherwise, wakeboard could detach or occupants could fall off and get injured
against the wakeboard or rack.
Don’t forget: Ride smart from the
start and we all win!

 WARNING
Should the engine be stopped,
watercraft directional control is reduced. Always disconnect DESS
key 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 DESS key 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 the DESS key.
Afterwards, the beeps will stop. The
same will occur when the DESS key is
left on its post 5 seconds after engine
is stopped.
Always ensure the DESS key is not left
on its post after engine is stopped.
IMPORTANT: Leaving the DESS key
on its post when engine is not running
will slowly discharge the battery.
Digitally Encoded Security
System (DESS)
The DESS key specifically contains an
electronic circuit that gives it a unique
electronic serial number. This is the
equivalent of a conventional key.
This DESS key 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 DESS
key and have it programmed for your
watercraft.
To have additional DESS keys, refer to
an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.

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 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.
70
– 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 assistance, refer to an authorized SeaDoo 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
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
PREOPERATION
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.
 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.
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.
 WARNING
When the watercraft is in neutral
position, the drive shaft and impeller are still turning.

move the rear of the watercraft.
For example, to steer the rear of the
watercraft to the left side, turn the
handlebar to the left side.
______________________
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.

RXP Models
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 attitude to attain maximum
performance.

_____________________
73
When the nozzle is directed downward, the bow is forced downward
and enhances the watercraft turning
capabilities. As with any watercraft,
speed and operator body position and
movement (body English), will determine the degree and sharpness of the
watercraft turn. Porpoising can be reduced or eliminated if the nozzle is
downward and speed is adjusted proportionately.
All Models
Steering

 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.
74
______________________
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.
CAUTION: 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.
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.

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.
It is a good practice to lubricate throttle
body after every 10 hours of use, refer
to MAINTENANCE section for procedure.
Rinse watercraft bilge area with fresh
water.
Never use a high pressure washer
to clean the bilge. USE LOW PRESSURE ONLY (like a garden hose).
High pressure can cause electrical or
mechanical damages.
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.
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 XP-S Lube 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.
Connect a garden hose to connector
located at the rear of watercraft on jet
pump support. Do not open water tap
yet.
NOTE: An optional quick connect
adapter can be used (P/N 295 500
473). No hose pincher is required to
flush engine.
_____________________
81
CAUTION: Never run engine longer
than 5 minutes. Drive line seal has
no cooling when watercraft is out of
water.
Close the water tap, then stop the engine.

Anticorrosion Treatment
To prevent corrosion, spray a corrosion
inhibitor (salt water resistant) such as
XP-S Lube or equivalent over metallic
components in engine compartment.
Apply dielectric grease (salt water resistant) on battery posts and cable
connectors.
CAUTION: Never leave rags or tools
in the engine compartment or in the
bilge.
CAUTION: Never flush a hot engine. Always start the engine before opening the water tap. Open
water tap immediately after engine
is started to prevent overheating.
Run the engine about 20 seconds at a
fast idle between 4000 - 5000 RPM.
CAUTION: Never run engine without supplying water to the exhaust
cooling system when watercraft is
out of water.
Ensure water flows out of jet pump
while flushing. Otherwise, refer to an
authorized Sea-Doo dealer for servicing.

______________________
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 GAUGE 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 DESS key 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 POSTOPERATION 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.

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:
– Cavitation: Engine speed is high
but watercraft moves slowly due to
reduced jet thrust, jet pump components may be damaged.
– 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.
84
On-Beach Water Cleaning
 WARNING
Always remove the DESS key 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
TYPICAL
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.
______________________
 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 DESS
key 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.STM). 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 to the engine will be.
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 to the engine will be. 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.
_____________________
85
 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.
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).
To ease access to the hose, the vent
tube can be temporarily removed.
CAUTION: Never run engine without supplying water to the exhaust
cooling system when watercraft is
out of water.

Engine Emissions
Information
EPA Emission Regulations
All 1999 and more recent Sea-Doo watercraft manufactured by 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.
For more detailed information on this
subject, you may contact the following locations:
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 watercraft
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.
Owner Responsibility
The owner/operator is required to
have engine maintenance performed
to maintain emission levels within prescribed certification standards.

MAINTENANCE CHART
Periodic Inspection
Routine maintenance is necessary for all mechanized products. A periodic inspection contributes to the product’s life span.
The following maintenance chart gives guidelines for regular watercraft servicing
scheduled to be performed by you and/or by an authorized Sea-Doo dealer. The
schedule should be adjusted according to operating conditions and use.
IMPORTANT: Schedule for watercraft rental operations or higher number of hour
use, will require greater frequency of inspection and maintenance.
The maintenance is very important, if you are not familiar with safe service practices and adjustment procedures, see your authorized Sea-Doo dealer.

 WARNING
Do not lubricate the DESS post.
Lubricate the throttle cable with XP-S
Lube or equivalent.
Drive Shaft Corrosion Protection
To give additional protection to drive
shaft against possible corrosion in salt
water conditions, it is recommended
to bring the watercraft to an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer for proper lubrication.
Final Steps
If any repairs are needed to body or
to the hull, contact your authorized
Sea-Doo dealer. For paint touch up of
mechanical parts use BRP spray paint.
Apply a good quality marine wax to the
body.
The seat and the seat extension
should be partially left opened. This
will prevent engine compartment condensation and possible corrosion.
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 store watercraft in a plastic bag.
Preseason Preparation
Use the following chart.
Since technical skills and special
tools are required, some operations
should be performed by an authorized
Sea-Doo 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 DESS key must be
removed from its post for all maintenance procedures. Components
inside engine compartment may
be hot. When component conditions seem less than satisfactory,
replace with genuine BRP parts or
approved equivalents.

in order to maintain warranty coverage. BRP reserves the right to make warranty
coverage contingent upon proof of proper maintenance.
BRP will not honor this limited warranty to any private use owner or commercial
use owner if the preceding conditions have not been met. Such limitations are
necessary in order to allow BRP to preserve both the safety of its products, and
also that of its consumers and the general public.
6. WHAT TO DO TO OBTAIN WARRANTY COVERAGE
The customer must notify a servicing BRP Distributor/Dealer within two (2)
months of the appearance of a defect, and provide it with reasonable access
to the product and reasonable opportunity to repair it. The customer must
also present to the authorized BRP Distributor/Dealer, proof of purchase of the
product and must sign the repair/work order prior to starting the repair in order
to validate the warranty repair. All parts replaced under this limited warranty
become the property of BRP. Note that the notification period is subject to the
applicable national or local legislation in your country.
7. WHAT BRP WILL DO
BRP’s obligations under this warranty are limited to, at its sole discretion, repairing parts found defective under normal use, maintenance and service, or replacing such parts with new genuine SEA-DOO parts without charge for parts and
labor, at any authorized BRP Distributor/Dealer during the warranty coverage period.
BRP reserves the right to improve or modify products from time to time without
assuming any obligation to modify products previously manufactured.
8. TRANSFER
If the ownership of a product is transferred during the warranty coverage period,
this warranty shall also be transferred and be valid for the remaining coverage
period provided BRP or an authorized BRP Distributor/Dealer receives a proof
that the former owner agreed to the transfer of ownership, in addition to the
coordinates of the new owner.
9. CONSUMER ASSISTANCE
a)
In the event of a controversy or a dispute in connection with this limited warranty, BRP suggests that you try to resolve the issue at the dealership level.
We recommend discussing the issue with the authorized Distributor/Dealer’s service manager or owner.
b) If further assistance is required, the distributor’s service department should
be contacted in order to resolve the matter.
c) If the matter still remains unresolved then contact BRP at the address listed
below.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS/OWNERSHIP
If your address has changed or if you are the new owner of the personal watercraft, be sure to notify BRP by either:
– mailing the card below;
– calling at (715) 848-4957 (USA) or (819) 566-3366 (Canada) or
– notifying an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
In case of change of ownership, please join a proof that the former owner agreed
to the transfer.
Notifying BRP, even after the expiration of the limited warranty, is very important as it enables BRP to reach the personal watercraft owner if necessary, like
when safety recalls are initiated. It is the owner’s responsibility to notify BRP of
a change of address or owner.
STOLEN UNITS: If your personal watercraft is stolen, you should notify BRP or
an authorized Sea-Doo dealer. We will ask you to provide your name, address,
phone number, the hull identification number of your personal watercraft and the
date it was stolen.
