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 any watercraft operator 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 Guide and Safety Handbook on board. 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 the watercraft at all
times.
For any questions pertaining to the
warranty and its application, consult
the WARRANTY section in this guide,
and/or an authorized SEA-DOO dealer.
This guide uses the following symbols
to emphasize particular information.
WARNING

not followed, may cause serious
personal injuries including the
possibility of death.
CAUTION: Denotes an instruction
which, if not followed, might damage the watercraft and/or components.

Although the mere reading of such information does not eliminate the hazard, the understanding and application
of the information will promote its correct use.
The information and components/
system descriptions contained in this
guide are correct at the time of publication. Bombardier Inc. however, maintains a policy of continuous improvement of its products without imposing
upon itself any obligation to install
them on products previously manufactured.
Because of our ongoing commitment
to product quality and innovation, Bombardier Inc. reserves the right at any
time to discontinue or change specifications, designs, features, models or
equipment without incurring obligation.
The illustrations in this document show
the typical construction of the different
assemblies and may not represent the
full detail or exact shape of the parts.
However, they represent parts that
have the same or similar function.
It is understood that this guide may be
translated into another language. In

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
smo2001-002a.book Page 7 Wednesday, June 7, 2000 3:57 PM
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
smo2001-002a.book Page 8 Wednesday, June 7, 2000 3:57 PM
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
smo2001-002a.book Page 9 Wednesday, June 7, 2000 3:57 PM
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 must 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.
WARNING
Should the safety lanyard cap become loose or fail to remain on its
switch, replace it immediately.
F00L07Y
1
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 additional safety
lanyard and have it programmed for
your watercraft. To have additional
safety lanyard programmed, 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. Two
short beeps should sound indicating
the system is ready again to allow engine starting.
WARNING
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.
WARNING
Do not lubricate the safety lanyard
post.
While engine can be stopped using the engine start/stop button,
good habits recommend that the
safety lanyard also be disconnected when stopping.
Monitoring System
To assist you when using the watercraft, a system monitors some component of the watercraft and sends audible signals through a beeper to inform
you of a particular condition. Refer to
the TROUBLESHOOTING section for
the coded signals chart.

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.
Fill fuel tank to bottom of filler neck.
Do not overfill. Fully tighten fuel tank
cap.
Use regular unleaded 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.
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.

Recommended Oil
Use only two-stroke engine injection oil sold by authorized Sea-Doo dealers.
MODELS
OIL TYPE
GS, GTS, GTI
• BOMBARDIER Formula XP-S synthetic injection oil (or equivalent)
OR
BOMBARDIER injection oil (or equivalent) ➀
GSX RFI ➁
• BOMBARDIER Formula XP-S synthetic injection oil (or equivalent)
➀ If BOMBARDIER injection oil is not available, API TC high-quality ashless two-
stroke injection oil may be used.
➁ CAUTION: BOMBARDIER formulation XP-S is specially formulated and
tested for use in our 787 RFI engines. Use of any other brand of two-stroke
oil may void the limited warranty. Use only BOMBARDIER Formula XP-S
(or equivalent).
BOMBARDIER injection oil is a special
blend of basic oil and additives especially selected to ensure unequalled lubrication, engine cleanliness and minimum spark plug fouling.
The BOMBARDIER Formula XP-S synthetic injection oil provides superior
lubrication, reduced engine component wear and oil deposit, thus maintaining maximum-level performance
and antifriction properties. This synthetic injection oil meets the latest
ASTM and JASO standards by ensuring high biodegradability and low exhaust smoke.
CAUTION: Never use four-stroke petroleum or synthetic motor oil and
never mix these with outboard motor oil. Do not use NMMA TC-W, TCW2 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. 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.

smo2001-002a.book Page 39 Wednesday, June 7, 2000 3:57 PM
BREAK-IN PERIOD
Engine
With BOMBARDIER-ROTAX® watercraft engines, a break-in period is required before operating the engine at
full throttle. We recommend a break-in
of about 10 operating hours.
During this period, maximum throttle
should not exceed 3/4, however, brief
acceleration and speed variations contribute to a good break-in. Continued
wide open throttle accelerations, prolonged cruising speeds and overloading the engine are detrimental during
the break-in period.
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.
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.
10-Hour Inspection
It is highly recommended that after the
first 10 hours of operation, the watercraft be checked by an authorized SeaDoo dealer. This inspection will also
provide the opportunity to discuss the
unanswered questions you may have
encountered during the first hours of
operation.
The 10-hour inspection is at the
expense of the watercraft owner.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
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.
Neutral and Reverse
(if so equipped)
The shift lever should be in the forward
position in order for the craft to advance.
To obtain neutral, pull shift lever halfway. 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
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.
When the watercraft is in neutral
position, the drive shaft and impeller are turning.

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.

smo2001-002a.book Page 46 Wednesday, June 7, 2000 3:57 PM
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.
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
and water conditions.
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.
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.

SPECIAL PROCEDURES
Engine Overheating
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.
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:
If system is still blocked, move the
craft out of the water and remove
blockage manually.
Models with Reverse System
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 Cleaning
All Models
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.
GS, GTS and GTI Models
Rotate the watercraft counterclockwise (seen from rear) to its left side for
cleaning.
Max. 90°
WARNING
Always remove safety lanyard cap
from its switch to prevent accidental engine starting before cleaning

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.
Anticorrosion Treatment
Wipe off any residual water in the engine compartment.
Spray BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant
or equivalent over metallic components in engine compartment.
Lubricate the throttle cable with BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant or equivalent.
Insert a funnel into hose and pour antifreeze mixed with water in engine until the colored solution appears in the
water return hose of the magneto
cooling circuit.

Final Steps
Apply a good quality marine wax to the
body.
The front and rear portion of the seat (if
so equipped) should be partially left
opened, rear access cover 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
