GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
Avoid Carbon Monoxide
Poisoning
All engine exhaust contains carbon
monoxide, a deadly gas. Breathing carbon monoxide can cause headaches,
dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, confusion and eventually death.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that may be present
even if you do not see or smell any engine exhaust. Deadly levels of carbon
monoxide can collect rapidly, and you
can quickly be overcome and unable
to save yourself. Also, deadly levels of
carbon monoxide can linger for hours
or days in enclosed or poorly ventilated
areas. If you experience any symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning,
leave the area immediately, get fresh
air and seek medical treatment.
To prevent serious injury or death from
carbon monoxide:
Never run the watercraft in poorly
ventilated or partially enclosed areas such as boat houses, seawalls
or other boats in close proximity.
Even if you try to ventilate engine
exhaust, carbon monoxide can
rapidly reach dangerous levels.
Never run the watercraft outdoors
where engine exhaust can be drawn
into a building through openings
such as windows and doors.
Never stand behind the watercraft
while engine is running. The person may inhales exhaust fumes in
concentration. Inhalation of concentrated exhaust fumes, which
contain carbon monoxide, can result in CO poisoning, personal injury
and death.
Avoid Gasoline Fires and
Other Hazards
Gasoline is extremely flammable and
highly explosive. Fuel vapors can
spread and be ignited by a spark or
8
________
flame many feet away from the engine. To reduce the risk of fire or explosion, follow these instructions:
Refuel outdoors in a well ventilated
area away from flames, sparks, anyone smoking and other sources of
ignition.
Never add fuel with engine running.
Never top off the fuel tank. Leave
some room for the fuel to expand
with temperature changes.
Wipe up any spilled fuel.
Never start or operate the engine
with the fuel cap removed.
Use only an approved red gasoline
container to store fuel.
Do not carry gasoline containers in
the front storage compartment or
anywhere else on the watercraft.
Gasoline is poisonous and can cause
injury or death.
Never siphon gasoline by mouth.
If you swallow gasoline, get any in
your eye or inhale gasoline vapor,
see your doctor immediately.
If gasoline spills on you, wash with
soap and water and change your
clothes.
Avoid Burns from Hot Parts
The ride plate, exhaust system and
engine become hot during operation.
Avoid contact during and shortly after
operation to avoid burns.
Do not make unauthorized modifications, or use accessories that are not
approved by BRP. Since these changes
have not been tested by BRP, they
may increase the risk of accidents or
injuries, and they can make the watercraft illegal for use on water.
See your authorized Sea-Doo dealer
for available accessories for your watercraft.

SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
Reminders Regarding
Operation
The performance of this watercraft
may significantly exceed that of
other craft you may have operated.
Make sure you read and understand
the content of the Operator's Guide
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.
Always keep in mind that as the
throttle lever is returned to the idle
position, less directional control is
available. To turn the watercraft,
both steering and throttle are necessary.
Like most watercraft, this watercraft 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. Do not release the
throttle when trying to steer away
from objects. You need throttle to
steer. Do not use the watercraft's
reverse to stop.
Do not start or operate the watercraft if any person is not properly
seated or if a person is nearby in the
water.
The personal watercraft's jet thrust
can cause injury. The jet pump may
pick up debris and throw it rearward
causing a risk of injuring people or
damaging the jet pump or other
property.
________
Observe the instructions on all
safety labels. They are there to help
assure that you have a safe and enjoyable outing.
Riding with passenger(s) or pulling
tubes, a skier or a wake boarder
makes the PWC handle differently
and requires greater skill.
Certain PWCs may come equipped
with tow eyelets or a ski pole which
can be used to attach a tow rope for
a skier, tube or wakeboarder. Do not
use these attachment points or any
other portion of the watercraft to
tow a parasail or another craft. Personal injury or severe damage may
occur.
Combustion engines need air to
operate; consequently this PWC
can not be totally watertight. Any
maneuvers such as figure eights
that cause the upper deck to be under water may cause severe engine problems due to water ingestion. Refer to the SPECIAL PROCEDURES and WARRANTY sections
contained in this Operator's Guide.
Engine exhaust contains carbon
monoxide (CO), which can cause
injury or death if inhaled in sufficient
quantities. Do not operate the PWC
in a confined area or allow CO to
accumulate around the PWC, or in
enclosed or sheltered areas. Such
as when docked, or when rafting.
Be aware of risk of CO from exhaust
of other PWCs.
Before Getting Underway
For safety reasons and proper
care, always perform pre-operation
checks” as specified in your Operator’s Guide before operating your
watercraft.

SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
Do not exceed the payload or passenger capacities for your watercraft, which are listed on the capacity plate and in the specifications.
Overloading can affect maneuverability, stability and performance.
Also, heavy seas reduce capacity. A
payload or person capacity plate is
not an excuse for failure to use common sense or good judgment.
Regularly inspect the PWC, the hull,
engine, safety equipment, and all
other boating gear and keep them in
safe operating condition.
Be sure you have the minimum required safety equipment, PFDs and
any additional gear needed for your
cruise.
Check that all lifesaving equipment,
including fire extinguisher, is in
safe operating condition and easily accessible. Show all passengers
where this equipment is, and make
sure they know how to use it.
Keep an eye on the weather. Check
local weather broadcasts before departure. Be alert to changing conditions.
Keep accurate and up-to-date charts
of the boating area on board. Before
getting underway, check water conditions in the planned boating area.
Keep enough fuel on board for the
planned trip. Always verify fuel level
before use and during the ride. Apply the principle of 1/3 of the fuel to
reach your destination, 1/3 to return,
and keep 1/3 in reserve. Allow for
changes due to adverse weather or
other delays.

_______
Operators and Passengers
Read and understand all WARNING/
SAFETY labels on your Sea-Doo
PWC, your OPERATOR’S GUIDE, all
other safety documents, and watch
properly your SAFETY DVD, 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 Preoperation 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
Never operate a PWC while under
the influence of drugs or alcohol
they slow reaction time and impair
judgement. It is also a Federal offense. Allow only qualified drivers
to operate your watercraft.
Remember that sun, wind, fatigue
or illness may impair your judgement and reaction time.
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
SPECIAL SAFETY MESSAGES
At least one passenger should be
able to operate the watercraft in
case the operator is unexpectedly
unable to do so.
Operation of this PWC by a person
under 16 years of age or a person
with a disability that impairs vision,
reaction time, judgment, or operation of the controls is NOT recommended.
Always use the safety lanyard when
operating the watercraft and ensure
that all passengers are familiar with
its use.
Ensure that any operator and all passengers know how to swim and
how to re-board the PWC from
the water. Boarding in deep water can be strenuous. Practice in
chest-deep water before operating or embarking your watercraft
in deep water. If a passenger does
not know how to swim, ensure that
passenger wears a PFD at all times
and take extra precautions when
boating.
Water Sports
WARNING
Avoid personal injury! Your PWC
is not designed for and should not
be used for pulling parasails, kites,
gliders, or any device which can
become airborne. Use watercraft
only for appropriate water sports.
Water skiing, wakeboarding, or riding
a towed, inflatable apparatus are some
of the more popular water sports. Taking part in any water sport requires
increased safety awareness by the participant and the watercraft operator. If
you have never pulled someone behind your PWC before, it is a good idea
to spend some hours as an observer,
working with and learning from an experienced driver. It is also important to
be aware of the skill and experience of
the person being pulled. Always have
________
a second person on board to observe
the person in the water so the driver
can concentrate on operating the watercraft.
Both the operator and observer should
monitor the location of the towrope
when participating in watersports. A
slack tow rope can become entangled
with person(s) or objects on the PWC
or in the water, particularly when making a tight turn or circling, and cause
serious personal injury.
Everyone participating in a water sport
should observe these guidelines:
Allow only capable swimmers to
take part in any water sport.
Always wear an approved personal
flotation device (PFD). Wearing
a properly designed PFD helps a
stunned or unconscious person stay
afloat. A Type-IV water-ski vest is an
approved and practical PFD.
Have a second person aboard to
observe the person being towed
and inform the driver about the participant's hand signals. The driver
must give full attention to operating the watercraft and the waters
ahead.
Be considerate to others you share
the water with.
Do not tow a person in any water
sport on a short tow rope such that
the person inhales exhaust fumes
in concentration. Inhalation of concentrated exhaust fumes, which
contain carbon monoxide, can result in CO poisoning, personal injury
and death.
Give immediate attention to a person who has fallen. He or she is
vulnerable in the water alone and
may not be seen by other boaters.
Approach a person in the water from
the lee side (opposite the direction
of the wind). Turn off the motor before coming close to the person.

Hypothermia
Safe Boating Courses
Hypothermia, the loss of body heat
to the water, is a significant cause of
deaths in boating accidents. After an
individual has succumbed to hypothermia, he or she will lose consciousness
and then drown.
PFDs can increase survival time because of the insulation they provide.
Naturally, the warmer the water, the
less insulation one will require. When
operating in cold water (below 4.4°C
(40°F)) consideration should be given
to using a coat or jacket style PFD as
they cover more of the body than the
vest style PFDs.
Some points to remember about hypothermia protection:
– While afloat in the water, do not attempt to swim unless it is to reach
a nearby boat, fellow survivor, or
a floating object on which you can
lean or climb. Unnecessary swimming increases the rate of body heat
loss. In cold water, drown-proof
methods that require putting your
head in the water are not recommended. Keep your head out of the
water. This will greatly lessen heat
loss and increase your survival time.
– Keep a positive attitude about your
survival and rescue. This will improve your chances of extending
your survival time until rescue. Your
will to live does make a difference!
– If there is more than one person
in the water, huddling is recommended while waiting to be rescued. This action tends to reduce
the rate of heat loss and thus increase the survival time.
– Always wear your PFD. It won't help
you fight off the effects of hypothermia if you don't have it on when you
go into the water.
Many countries recommend or require
a boating safety course. Check with
your local competent authorities.
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).

Required Safety
Equipment
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.
The operator and passenger(s) must
wear a Coast Guard approved Personal
Flotation Device (PFD) that is suitable
for PWC use.
The operator and 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.

Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs)
In many countries, regulations require
that you have at least one approved
personal flotation device (PFD) for
each person on a recreational watercraft and require that all children under
13 years of age wear a PFD at all times
when the watercraft is underway. You
may not use your watercraft unless
all PFDs are in serviceable condition,
readily accessible, legibly marked with
the approval number, and of an appropriate size (within the weight range and
chest size marked on the PFD) for each
person on board.
A PFD provides buoyancy to help keep
your head above the water and to help
you remain in a satisfactory position
while in the water. Body weight and
age should be considered when selecting a PFD. The buoyancy provided
by the PFD should support your weight
in water. The size of the PFD should
be appropriate for the wearer. Body
weight and chest size are common
methods used to size PFDs. It is your
responsibility to ensure that you have
the proper number and types of PFDs
on board to comply with federal and
local regulations and that your passengers know where they are and how to
use them.
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
15
SAFETY EQUIPMENT
PFD Types
There are five types of approved PFDs.
PFD Type I, Wearable has the greatest
required buoyancy. Its design allows
for turning most unconscious persons
in the water from face down position to
a vertical or slightly backward, face-up
position. It can greatly increase the
chances of survival. Type I is most
effective for all waters, especially offshore when rescue may be delayed. It
is also the most effective in rough waters
PFD Type III, Wearable allows wearers to place themselves in a vertical
or slightly backward position. It does
not turn the wearer. It maintains the
wearer in a vertical or slightly backward position and has no tendency
to turn the wearer face down. It has
the same buoyancy as a Type Il PFD
and may be appropriate in areas where
other people are commonly involved in
water activities.
F00A2EY
TYPE III — WEARABLE
F00A2CY
TYPE I — WEARABLE
PFD Type II, Wearable turns its wearer
in the same way as Type I, but not as
effectively. The Type Il does not turn as
many persons under the same conditions as a Type I. You may prefer to use
this PFD where there is a probability of
quick rescue such as in areas where
other people are commonly involved in
water activities.
PFD Type IV, Throwable is required
in addition to the PFDs previously discussed. The most common Type IV
PFD is a buoyant cushion or ring buoy.
It is designed to be thrown to a person in the water, grasped and held by
the user until he or she is rescued. A
Type IV PFD should always be in serviceable condition and immediately
available for use. Grasping this PFD
may be difficult if the rescue is delayed
or if the user is overcome by hypothermia (loss of body heat).

PFD Type V, Wearable must be worn.
When inflated, it provides buoyancy
equivalent to Type I, Il or III PFDs.
When it is deflated, however, it may
not support some people.
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?
________
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.
Additional Recommended
Equipment
It is recommended that you acquire
additional equipment for safe, enjoyable cruising. This list, which is not all
inclusive, includes items you should
consider acquiring.
– Paddle
– First aid kit
– Charts
– Sunblock
– Emergency supply of drinking water
and food.
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.

SAFE BOATING PRACTICES
YOU are responsible for your own
safety, the safety of your passengers,
and the safety of fellow boaters. Ride
smart from the start and we all win!
Drugs and Alcohol
Do not use drugs or drink alcohol while
operating a PWC. Like driving a car,
driving a watercraft requires sober, attentive care. Operating a watercraft
while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs is not only dangerous,
but it is also a Federal offense carrying a significant penalty. These laws
are vigorously enforced. The use of
drugs and alcohol, singly or in combination, decreases reaction time, impedes judgment, impairs vision, and
inhibits your ability to safely operate a
watercraft.
WARNING
Alcohol consumption and boating do not mix! Operating under the influence endangers the
lives of your passengers and other
boaters. Federal laws prohibit operating a watercraft under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Safe Operation
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.
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.
18
_______
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.
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 nighttime operation.
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
SAFE BOATING PRACTICES
Operator/Passenger Awareness
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.
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.
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.
Operation by Minors
Minors should always be supervised
by an adult whenever operating a watercraft. Many states have laws regarding the minimum age and licensing requirements of minors. Be sure
to contact the state boating authorities
for information. BRP recommends a
minimum operator age of 16 years old.
Manoeuvrability of the
Watercraft/Towing
Do not overload the watercraft or
take on more passengers than designated for the particular watercraft.
Respect the maximum load limit
rating of the ski/wakeboard post.
Overloading can affect maneuverability, stability and performance.
Avoid adding on accessories, or
equipment which may alter your
control of the watercraft.
Certain PWCs may come or can be
equipped with tow eyelets or a ski
pole which can be used to attach a
tow rope for a skier, tube or wakeboarder. Do not use these attachment points or any other portion of
the PWC to tow a parasail or another
craft. Personal injury or severe damage may occur.
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.
SAFETY INFORMATION
________
19
SAFE BOATING PRACTICES
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.
With wakeboard and/or rack installed, operate with extra caution:
never perform aggressive 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.
Respect no wake zones, the rights
of other water users and the environment. As the operator and
owner of a PWC, you are responsible for damage to other watercrafts
caused by the wake of your PWC.
Do not let anyone throw refuse overboard.
Don’t forget: Ride smart from the start
and we all win!

RULES OF THE ROAD
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 and/or your passenger(s)
could be thrown from the watercraft.
Like most 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.

FUELING PROCEDURE
Recommended Fuel
Use unleaded gasoline with the following octane rating.
Open the front storage compartment
cover to expose fuel tank cap.
MINIMUM OCTANE RATING
Inside
87 (RON + MON)/2)
(1)
North America
Outside
92 RON (1)
North America
(1) On
supercharged models, use super
unleaded fuel for optimum engine performance.
NOTICE Never experiment with
other fuels or fuel ratios. Never
use fuel containing more than 10%
ethanol. The use of non-recommended fuel can result in watercraft performance deterioration and
damage to critical parts in the fuel
system and engine components.
Fueling Procedure
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. 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.
1
F18F01Y
TYPICAL
1. Fuel tank cap
Unscrew the cap counterclockwise.
Do not insert the spout too far in filler
neck.
Pour fuel slowly so that air can escape
from the tank and prevent fuel flowback. Be careful not to spill fuel.
Stop filling when the fuel reaches the
bottom of filler neck. Do not fill into the
filler tube to prevent fuel spill out. Do
not overfill.
Reinstall cap and fully tighten.
WARNING
In the event that the fuel cap
should be replaced, you must ensure to use ONLY a BRP vented
fuel cap. Otherwise, the fuel system integrity of your watercraft
will be compromised. There is no
equivalent fuel cap on the market.
Turn off engine.
Do not allow anyone to remain on the
watercraft.
Tie watercraft securely to the fueling
pier.
Have a fire extinguisher close at hand.

WARNING
The bungee cords are under tension and could spring back and
whip someone when released.
Use caution.
NOTE: When trailering 2 watercraft, it
may be necessary to remove the inner
wakeboard rack.
WARNING
Never tow a watercraft with water
remaining in the ballast tanks.
The weight of ballasts increases
the load on the trailer, the axle, and
the tires, which could lead to premature wear or failure. This also
contributes to reduce the stability of your vehicle on the road by
raising the center of gravity of the
trailer. Always completely empty
the ballast tanks before trailering.
Launching/Loading
NOTICE Before launching the watercraft, ensure the bilge drain plugs
are fully screwed. After loading the
watercraft, ensure they are removed
to drain bilge.

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.
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.
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.

TYPICAL
1. Reverse gate in downward position
NOTE: To obtain maximum efficiency
and control from the reverse, increase
engine speed to slightly above idle.
Too much RPM will create water turbulence and reduce reverse efficiency.
In reverse position, turn the handlebar
in the same direction that you want to
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.
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.
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.
NOTE: VTS position is indicated on a
bar gauge in the information center.

watercraft turn. Porpoising can be reduced or eliminated if the nozzle is
downward and speed is adjusted proportionately.
NOTE: VTS position is indicated on a

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.
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.

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.

Models with Sliding Side Vanes
(O.P.A.S. System)
When engine is running at approximately 75% or more RPM, the side
vanes are automatically raised to upper position since they are not required
at that vehicle speed range.
Between 30% and 75% engine RPM,
side vanes are gradually raised from
lower position to upper position.

SPECIAL PROCEDURES
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.
78
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.
NOTICE Inspect water intake grate
for damage. Refer to an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer for repair as necessary.
______________
SPECIAL PROCEDURES
Capsized Watercraft
Submerged 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.
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.
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.S.TM). 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.
NOTICE 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.
NOTICE 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.
NOTICE 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.
NOTICE The longer the delay before you have the engine serviced,
the greater the damage to the engine will be.
Water-Flooded Engine
NOTICE 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.
NOTICE 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.
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).
_______________
79
SPECIAL PROCEDURES
When towing your watercraft in water, pinch the water supply hose from
the exhaust manifold to muffler with a
large hose pincher (P/N 529 032 500).
NOTICE When finished towing the
watercraft, hose pincher must be removed before operating it. Failure
to do so will result in damage to the
engine.
F01B23Y
This will prevent the exhaust 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.
NOTICE 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).
NOTE: A red tape on the water supply
hose indicates which hose to pinch.

ENGINE EMISSIONS INFORMATION
NOTE: 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.
Manufacturer's
Responsibility
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
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
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.

MONITORING SYSTEM
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.
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 (reduced speed).
When a fault occurs, see an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer as soon as possible for
inspection.
