ENGINE DRAINING
Model(s): GTI 717
Check engine drain hose [1] (lowest hose of
engine). Make sure there is no sand or other
particles in it and that it is not obstructed
so that water can exit the engine. Clean
hose and fitting as necessary.
CAUTION: Water in engine drain hose must
be free to flow out, otherwise water could
be trapped in engine. Should water freeze
in engine, severe damage will occur. Check
engine drain hose for obstructions.

Disconnect the water supply hose used to
cool the magneto. It features a quick connect
fitting. Press both tabs [1] and pull fitting
in order to disconnect hose. This hose is
located at the bottom of the magneto cover
beside the engine support.
NOTE: It may be necessary to position the
end of the hose in a lower area of the bilge
to allow proper drainage.

Water should flow out of the fitting [1]
(magneto cooling circuit) and hose [2]
(crankcase heat exchanger).
Push and hold hose against bilge so that
draining can take place.

PROPULSION SYSTEM
Seal Carrier
Jet Pump
Model(s): 3D RFI
Lubricant in impeller shaft reservoir should
be drained. Reservoir should be cleaned and
refilled with SEA-DOO synthetic 75W90 GL5
polyolester oil. Refer to JET PUMP in SHOP
MANUAL for proper procedure.
Lubricate seal carrier [1] of driveshaft support
with synthetic grease. Stop lubricating when
grease starts coming out of seal.
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
Remove PTO flywheel guard.
Lubricate PTO flywheel at grease fitting [1] with
synthetic grease (P/N 293 550 010).
CAUTION: Do not lubricate excessively.
Stop immediately when a slight movement
is noticed on rubber boot.
CAUTION: Never leave any clothing, tool or
other objects near PTO flywheel and driveshaft.

Check fuel hoses and carburetor(s), if so
equipped, for leaks.
Replace damaged hoses or clamps if necessary.
NOTE: Sea-Doo Fuel Stabilizer (P/N 413 408 600)
or equivalent should be added in fuel tank to
prevent fuel deterioration and, if so equipped,
carburetor(s) gumming. Follow manufacturer’s
instructions for proper use.
Fill up fuel tank completely. Ensure there
is no water inside fuel tank.
CAUTION: Should any water be trapped inside
fuel tank, severe internal damage will occur to
the fuel injection system (if so equipped).

ENGINE INTERNAL
LUBRICATION
CAUTION: Fuel stabilizer should be added
prior to engine lubrication to ensure fuel
system components protection against
varnish deposits.
 WARNING
Engine must be lubricated to prevent
corrosion on internal parts.
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. 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 inspect fuel system.
Always turn the fuel tank valve (if so equipped)
to OFF position when storing the watercraft.
Model(s): GTI 717
Always turn the fuel valve to OFF position
when storing the watercraft.
COOLING SYSTEM
FLUSHING
Cooling system has to be flushed with fresh
water to prevent salt, sand or dirt accumulation
which will clog water passages.
For proper procedure, refer to FLUSHING
in SHOP MANUAL.

For proper procedure, refer to LUBRICATION
in SHOP MANUAL.
BATTERY
For battery removal, cleaning and storage, refer
to the appropriate SHOP MANUAL.
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
(use mild detergent only). 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
Ieft in water for storage. Never leave the
watercraft stored in direct sunlight.
=> ANTIFREEZE
PROTECTION
In cool regions (where freezing point may be
encountered), cooling system should be filled
with pure undiluted antifreeze.
F22J01A
NOTE: On the 3D RFI, the hose adapter
[1] is located on the right hand side on
the jet pump support.
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.

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.
On vehicles equipped with 787 RFI engine, install
hose pinchers on engine drain hose [1].
NOTE: Antifreeze must be compatible with
internal combustion aluminum engines. It is
recommended to use biodegradable antifreeze.
This will contribute to protect the environment.
Recreational vehicle (RV) antifreeze can be used.
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.
Model(s): All GTI's
NOTE: This procedure requires approximately
2.5 L (2.6 U.S. qt) of antifreeze.
Some hoses have to be plugged to prevent
draining, before filling cooling system jackets
with the antifreeze.
On vehicles equipped with the 717 engine, install
hose pinchers on engine drain hose [1].

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 pinchers

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.
NOTE: 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.
