Doin'it on your new Sea-Doo watercraft
Congratulations, you are now the proud owner of a Sea-Doo personal watercraft.
Whether you are an experienced boater or are new to the sport of boating, we
ask you to take the time to view the Videocassette provided with the watercraft,
to read this Operator’s Guide, the Safety Handbook and familiarize yourself with
the contents. These Guides contain pertinent information which, if followed, will
provide you with the necessary knowledge to help you fully enjoy the pleasures
of this watercraft.
We strongly recommend that all watercraft operators complete a safety boating
course. Check with your local Coast Guard or Power and Sail Squadron in your
area for course availability. More serious boaters may want to obtain Chapman
Piloting by Elbert S. Maloney, available at most book stores.
When introducing your family or friends to the sport, be sure they fully understand
the controls and operation of the watercraft and the importance of courteous,
responsible riding.
Each operator has a responsibility to ensure the passenger safety and the safety
of other water users. Please follow all safety instructions and drive with care.
We encourage you to have an Annual Safety Inspection of your watercraft. Please
contact your dealer for further details.
Finally, we urge you to visit your dealer regularly for regular and safety maintenance as well as any watercraft accessories you may require.
Have fun and... Bon Voyage.
Please keep this and on board at all times. These manuals should remain with the watercraft at time of resale.

FOREWORD
The Operator’s Guide and Safety Handbook have been prepared to acquaint
the owner/operator or passenger with
this personal watercraft and its various
controls, maintenance and safe riding
instructions. Each is indispensable for
the proper use of the product, and
should be kept in a waterproof bag with

 SAFETY WARNING
General
 To fully appreciate the pleasures,
enjoyment and excitement of boating there are some basic rules that
should be observed and followed by
any rider. Some rules may be new
to you or covered in the Personal
Watercraft Safety Handbook or
Safety Video , others may be common sense or obvious… irrespective, we ask that you please take a
few minutes of your time to completely read these safety instructions completely before you operate your watercraft. Failure to
follow this safety information and
safe boating rules could result in
injury, including the possibility of
death to you, your passenger(s),
or other water users.
 Information in this guide is limited.
It is strongly recommended that
you obtain further boating information from the local Coast Guard or
Power Squadron. We also recommend all operators to take a boating
safety course. Please check local
and federal boating laws applicable
to the waterways where you intend
to use the watercraft. Learn the local rules of the road. Always carry
the regulatory required safety items
on board.
 The performance of this watercraft
may significantly exceed that of other crafts you have operated. Therefore, use of this watercraft by a novice or inexperienced operator, or an
underage or disabled person, is
NOT RECOMMENDED.
 Observe and follow all on-product
warning labels.
6
 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
with your authorized Sea-Doo dealer,
practice driving solo in a suitable area
and feel the response of each control. Be fully familiar with all controls
before applying throttle above idle
speed. As its operator, you control
and are responsible for the watercraft’s safe operation.
 Always carry the regulatory required
safety items on board. Check the local regulations or consult your dealer.
 Make sure that all users of the watercraft read and are aware of all
warnings.
Operation
 Always perform the daily pre-operation
checks as specified in this guide.
 Operator and passenger(s) should at
all times wear a coast guard approved
personal flotation device (PFD) that is
suitable for personal watercraft.
 Operator and passenger(s) should
wear protective clothing. 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. Wet suit bottom (or
clothing that provides equivalent
protection), footwear, gloves and
goggles/glasses are recommended.
www.SeaDooManuals.net
smo2000-003a.book Page 7 Thursday, November 11, 1999 10:44 AM
 Always keep in mind that as the
throttle lever is released to idle position, less directional control is available. To turn the watercraft, both
steering and throttle are necessary. This watercraft has the capability of turning more sharply than
other crafts, however, unless in an
emergency, do not negotiate sharp,
high speed turns. You and your passenger(s) could be thrown from the
watercraft. It should also be remembered that sun, wind, alcohol or
drugs, may impair your judgment
and reaction time.
 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. Remain flexible and avoid
sharp turns. Never place your feet
and legs in the water to aid turning.
 Ensure operator all-round visibility is unrestricted. Always keep a
constant lookout for other water
users or other potential hazards
especially when turning. Make
sure to keep a safe distance from
all other crafts, other waterusers
or other objects.
 Like any other craft, 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 throttle when trying to steer
away from objects. You need throttle
to steer. Do not use the watercraft’s
reverse, if so equipped, to stop.
 Ensure that all passengers know
how to swim and how to reboard
the watercraft from the water. The
operator and passenger(s) should
be properly seated before starting
or moving the watercraft, and at all
times when watercraft is in motion.
Do not start or operate the watercraft if a person(s) is seated on the
sun deck or swim platform, or are
nearby in the water. The watercraft’s jet thrust can cause injury. Always accelerate slowly. To prevent
accidental starting or unauthorized
use, always detach the safety lanyard from the watercraft especially
when swimmers are boarding or
nearby, or during removal of any
weeds or debris from the intake
grate. 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.
 Ride within your limits and avoid aggressive maneuvers to reduce the
risk of loss of control, ejection and
collision.
www.SeaDooManuals.net
7
smo2000-003a.book Page 8 Thursday, November 11, 1999 10:44 AM
 Riding with a passenger(s) or pulling
other crafts, tubes, skies or wakeboards makes the watercraft handle
differently and requires greater skill.
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 maybe fitted with tow eyelets
which can be used to attach a ski
rope. However, do not use these
eyelets or the watercraft’s cleats to
tow a parasail. Severe watercraft
damage may occur.
 Always respect the safety and comfort of your passenger(s) and persons being towed on skis, wakeboards or other water products.
Always have an observer while towing a skier, proceed with only as
much speed as required, and follow
the observers instructions. Unless
absolutely necessary, do not make
tight, sharp turns.
 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.
 Wake or wave jumping or riding the
surf line can cause severe personal
injury and damage the watercraft.
Never attempt to splash others with
your watercraft. You may misjudge
the ability of the watercraft or your
own riding skills and strike a craft or
person.
8
 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.
 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.
 Remember that a watercraft is not
designed for night time operation.
 Avoid adding on accessories or
equipment which may alter the
craft’s configuration or balance.
 Remember, gasoline fumes are inflammable and explosive. Always
adhere to the fueling procedure
contained in this guide and those
given to you by 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 inflammable liquids in
any of the storage or engine compartments.
 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.
 Due to the close proximity of other
racers, it is recommended that an
approved personal watercraft helmet be used during racing events.
Read and follow all instructions and
warnings provided with the helmet.
www.SeaDooManuals.net
smo2000-003a.book Page 9 Thursday, November 11, 1999 10:44 AM
Maintenance
 Only perform servicing procedures
which are detailed in this guide. Further assistance or information can
be obtained from your authorized
Sea-Doo dealer. In many instances
proper tools and training is required
for certain servicing or repair procedures.
 Maintain the watercraft and equipment in top condition at all times. Adhere to the prescribed maintenance
schedules. An annual inspection of
the watercraft is always a good recommendation that should be followed.
 Always use spark plug cable grounding device when removing spark
plugs.
 The bilge should be kept clean of oil,
water or other foreign materials.
 Do not attempt to lift the watercraft
without special equipment and training.
 The engine and the corresponding
components identified in this guide
should not be utilized on product(s)
other than for those they were designed. Maintenance procedures
and specified tightening torque
should be strictly adhered to. Never
attempt repairs unless the appropriate tools are available. These watercrafts are designed with parts dimensioned in both the metric and the
imperial systems. When replacing
fasteners, make sure to use only
those recommended by Bombardier.
If required, contact your authorized
Sea-Doo dealer for further servicing
information.
 Never ride after consuming drugs or
alcohol. Operate your craft prudently and have fun. Don’t forget that all
persons must assist other boaters
in an emergency.

COMPONENTS FUNCTIONS
1) Safety Lanyard
The safety lanyard cap should be securely snapped onto its switch to be fully operational.
Pulling the safety lanyard cap from the
switch stops the engine operation. Attach the safety lanyard to the operator's Personal Flotation Device (PFD)
and snap the cap to the switch to be
able to start the engine.
Two short beeps indicates the system
is ready to allow engine starting. Otherwise, refer to the TROUBLESHOOTING section for the coded signals chart.
 WARNING
Should the safety lanyard cap become loose or fail to remain on its
switch, replace it immediately in
order to avoid unauthorized use or
theft.
F00L07Y

2
1. Safety lanyard cap on the switch
2. Safety lanyard secured on operator’s PFD
 WARNING
Should the engine be stopped,
watercraft directional control is
lost. Always disconnect safety lanyard when leaving watercraft.
22
 WARNING
Do not lubricate the safety lanyard
post.
Digitally Encoded Security
System (DESS)
The safety lanyard cap specifically contains an electronic circuit that gives it
a unique electronic serial number.
This safety lanyard 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 safety
lanyard and have it programmed for
your watercraft.
The DI models also offers a special
safety lanyard — the Sea-Doo LKTM
(Learning Key) — which can be programmed so that the vehicle can be
run only at a limited speed. Such feature is ideal for first time riders.
To have additional safety lanyard, refer
to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
If the engine is stopped with the start/
stop button while the safety lanyard remains on the switch, it can be restarted within approximately 10 minutes by
pressing the engine start/stop button.
After this delay, it is necessary to apply
a slight pressure or the removal and reinstallation of the safety lanyard on the
switch to allow engine starting.
 WARNING
While engine can be stopped using the engine start/stop button,
good habits recommend that the
safety lanyard also be disconnected when stopping.
www.SeaDooManuals.net
smo2000-003a.book Page 23 Thursday, November 11, 1999 10:44 AM
2) Handlebar
The handlebar controls the direction of
the watercraft. Turning the handlebar

Check handlebar and corresponding steering nozzle operation before starting.
Adjustment (if so equipped)
The handlebar height can be adjusted
to suit rider preferences.
To perform this adjustment, turn the
knob underneath the handlebar.
Carburetor-Equipped Models
Do not depress lever unnecessarily
when engine is not running. A fuel accelerator pump delivers fuel to the engine each time throttle lever is applied.
CAUTION: Engine can be flooded if
throttle lever is unnecessarily applied several times. If engine is flooded, it will not start.
4) Engine Start/Stop
Button
All Models
To start engine, depress and hold the
start/stop button. Release immediately after engine is started.
To stop engine, fully release throttle lever then depress the start/stop button
and disconnect safety lanyard from the
switch.

FUEL AND LUBRICATION
Fueling Procedure
Recommended Fuel
 WARNING
Follow these safe boating fueling
instructions explicitly.
Do not allow anyone to remain on the
watercraft.
Tie watercraft securely to the fueling
pier.
Have a fire extinguisher close at hand.
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. Fully tighten fuel tank cap.
 WARNING
The tank design makes provision
for fuel expansion of about 5%. If
this area is filled, fuel will expand
and may come out through fuel
vent. Always stop the engine before refueling. Fuel is inflammable
and explosive under certain conditions. Always work in a well ventilated area. Do not smoke or allow
open flames or sparks in the vicinity. Never 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.
34
Use unleaded regular gasoline with 87
octane (Ron + Mon)/2 specification.
NOTE: Do not mix oil with fuel except
at engine break-in. Refer to BREAK-IN
PERIOD. Always check injection oil
reservoir level when refueling.
CAUTION: Never experiment with
other fuels or fuel ratios. Never use
fuel containing more than 10% alcohol, (ethanol or methanol). The use
of non-recommended fuel can result
in watercraft performance deterioration and damage to critical parts in
the fuel system and engine components.
CAUTION: Never use injector cleaning products. They may contain additive that could damage injector
components.
Recommended Oil

and never mix these with outboard
motor oil. Do not use NMMA TC-W,
TC-W2 or TC-W3 outboard motor
oils or other ashless type two-stroke
oil. Avoid mixing different brands of
API TC oil as resulting chemical reactions may cause severe engine
damage.
Oil Injection System
This watercraft features an oil injection
system which does not require manual
fuel/oil mixing.
A sufficient amount of injection oil
should be maintained in the reservoir.
NOTE: It is recommended to carry a 1 L
of spare injection oil.
The use of a funnel is recommended
to pour the oil into the reservoir. Stop
filling as soon as oil appears at approximately 13 mm (1/2 in) from top of reservoir. Do not overfill.
CAUTION: Always maintain a sufficient amount of injection oil in the oil
reservoir. Check and refill every time
you refuel if necessary. Do not overfill. If the engine runs out of oil, severe engine damage will occur. If the
oil reservoir is found almost empty,
air can enter in the system and it
should be bled. Immediately refer to
an authorized Sea-Doo dealer to
have the oil injection system inspected.

smo2000-003b.fm Page 36 Thursday, January 27, 2000 1:30 PM
BREAK-IN PERIOD
With Sea-Doo watercraft powered by
Rotax® engines, a break-in period of 10
hours is required before continuous
operation at full throttle. To achieve a
good break-in, vary the engine speed
every few minutes with brief wide
open throttle accelerations of up to 15
seconds. Continued wide open throttle runs and prolonged cruising without speed variations should be avoided, this can cause engine damage
during the break-in period.
Carburetor-Equipped Models
To assure additional protection during
the initial engine break-in, it is recommended to add 1 L of the same oil as
in the injection oil reservoir in the fuel
tank for the first full fuel tank filling
only.
To add injection oil in the fuel tank, proceed as follows:
Fill fuel tank with approximately 15 liters (4 gal) of gasoline; then, add the
injection oil in the fuel.
Fill up fuel tank with gasoline. Do not
overfill.
36
NOTE: It is important to proceed in this
order to allow a proper mixing of the oil
in the gasoline. If oil is added first in an
empty fuel tank, fuel lines will be filled
up with injection oil leading in a no start
condition of the engine.
CAUTION: Remove and clean spark
plugs after engine break-in.
DI Models
Adding injection oil in the fuel tank for
the break-in has no noticeable effects
on a DI engine.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
The shift lever should be in the forward
position in order for the craft to advance.
 WARNING
Always perform the DAILY 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.
Neutral and Reverse
RX Models
To find the neutral, set in reverse then
push back until the watercraft stops
moving backwards.
GTX DI Models
To obtain neutral, pull shift lever halfway.
All Models
The reverse gate will be in the middle
position, directing half of the thrust toward the front of the craft to minimize
watercraft movement.
 WARNING
When the watercraft is in neutral
position, the drive shaft and impeller are turning. Stay away from water intake and jet pump outlet.

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 angle 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.

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.

SPECIAL PROCEDURES
Limp Home Mode
Engine Overheating
DI Models
Monitoring System
To assist you when using the watercraft, a system monitors the electronic
components of the fuel injection system and some 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 for the displayed messages and the TROUBLESHOOTING section for the beeper
coded signals chart.
All Models
If the monitoring beeper continuously
sounds, stop engine immediately.
Perform Jet Pump Water Intake and
Impeller Cleaning procedure described in this section.
Flush cooling system, refer to POSTOPERATION CARE.
If engine still overheats, refer to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer for servicing.
Limp Home Modes
Besides the signals as seen above, the
system may automatically set default
parameters to the MPEM to ensure
the adequate operation of the watercraft if a component of the fuel injection system 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 case, letting
the engine returning at idle speed may
allow normal operation.
The engine RPM may be limited to idle
if some critical components fail. In this
case, removing and reinstalling the
safety lanyard on its switch may allow
normal operation.
These performance-reduced modes
allow the rider to go back home which
would not be possible without this advanced system. If this occurs, see an
authorized Sea-Doo dealer as soon as
possible for inspection.
Jet Pump Water Intake and
Impeller Cleaning
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:
1. Cavitation: Engine speed is high but
watercraft moves slowly due to reduced jet thrust, jet pump components may be damaged.
2. Overheating: Since the jet pump
operation controls the flow of water
to cool the engine, a clogged intake
will cause the engine to overheat
and damage engine internal components.
A weed clogged area can be cleaned
as follows:
 WARNING
Always remove safety lanyard cap
from its switch to prevent accidental engine starting before cleaning
the jet pump area.
www.SeaDooManuals.net
51
smo2000-003a.book Page 52 Thursday, November 11, 1999 10:44 AM
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 water flows out from bleed
outlet and watercraft operates properly.
If system is still blocked, move the craft
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.
On-Beach Water Cleaning
Place a cardboard or a carpet beside the
watercraft to prevent scratching when
turning the watercraft for cleaning.
Rotating watercraft in the proper direction eliminates the possibility of residual water in the tuned pipe entering the
engine and causing engine damage.
Rotate the watercraft clockwise (seen
from rear) to its right side for cleaning.
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.
CAUTION: Always refer to decal located on stern of watercraft.
To return the watercraft upright, ensure the engine is off, grab the inlet
grate, step on bumper rail and use your
weight to rotate the watercraft counterclockwise (seen from rear).

Pour approximately 200 mL (7 oz) of
antifreeze in hose. This will protect the
valve and the muffler.
Remove temporary hose and reconnect hose to valve.
All Models
Most of the antifreeze will drain out
when removing the hose pinchers. Use
a container to recover it. DISPOSE ANTIFREEZE AS PER YOUR LOCAL LAWS
AND REGULATIONS.
NOTE: Although antifreeze will mainly
drain out, the antifreeze has mixed with
the water that was possibly trapped in
the water jackets and thus preventing
freezing problems.
At pre-season preparation, drain the
remaining antifreeze from cooling system prior to using the watercraft.
The following steps should be performed to provide the watercraft enhanced protection.
Clean the bilge with hot water and 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 contact your authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
For paint touch up to mechanical parts
use Bombardier spray paint.
Reinstall vent tube support (if applicable).
Anticorrosion Treatment
Wipe off any residual water in the engine compartment.
Spray BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant
or equivalent over metallic components in engine compartment.
Final Steps
Apply a good quality marine wax to the
body.
The seat and the seat extension (if so
equipped) should be partially left
opened, and storage baskets (if so
equipped) should be removed during
storage. This will avoid 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.
Pre-Season Preparation
Use the following chart.
Since technical skills and special tools
are required, some operations should
be performed by an authorized SeaDoo dealer.
 WARNING
Observe all WARNINGS and CAUTIONS mentioned throughout this
guide which are pertinent to the
item being checked. When component conditions seem less than
satisfactory, replace with genuine
BOMBARDIER parts or approved
