SAFETY CHECK LIST
To fully appreciate the pleasures, enjoyment and excitement of boating
there are some basic rules that should
be observed and followed by any
boater. Failure to follow this safety information and safe boating rules could
result in injury, including the possibility of death to you, your passenger(s),
the people you lend your watercraft
to, or other water users.
General
Bombardier recommends a minimum
operator age of 16 years old.
A boating safety course is recommended and may be required in your
province or state.
The performance of this watercraft
may significantly exceed that of other
craft you may have operated. Make
sure to become completely familiar
with the controls and operation of the
watercraft before embarking on your
first trip or taking on a passenger(s). If
you have not had the opportunity to do
so, practice driving solo in a suitable
traffic free area and feel the response
of each control. Be fully familiar with
all controls before accelerating above
idle speed. Do not assume that all
PWCs handle identically. Each model
differs, often substantially.
The operator of the watercraft controls, and is responsible for the watercraft’s safe operation. He/she also
has the responsibility to require that
passenger(s) and people, to whom
he/she lends the watercraft to, read
and understand this safety section
Operator’s Guide, the Safety Videocassette and the on-product warning/caution labels.
Ensure that all passengers know how
to swim and how to reboard the watercraft from the water.
____________
Boarding in deep water can be strenuous. Practice in chest-deep water before operating or embarking your watercraft in deep water.
A PWC will not self-right if capsized.
The operator and passengers must
know the proper righting procedure
as explained in the Operator’s Guide.
Make sure engine is off before rolling
over the watercraft.
Your local Power Squadron or
state/provincial authorities will be
pleased to conduct a complementary
safety examination of your watercraft
and help you define your needs.
Never ride after consuming drugs or
alcohol or if you feel tired or ill.
When fueling, follow the safe boating
fueling instructions explicitly, as provided in your Operator’s Guide and
those given to you at the marina. Always verify fuel level before use and
during the ride. Apply the principle
of 1/3 fuel to destination, 1/3 back
and 1/3 reserve fuel supply. Do not
carry spare fuel or flammable liquids in
any of the storage or engine compartments.
Always stop the engine before fueling
and never allow anyone to remain on
the watercraft while fueling. Always
remember that fuel is flammable and
explosive under certain conditions.
Do not smoke or allow open flames or
sparks in the vicinity.
Respect no wake zones, the rights
of other water users and the environment. As the “skipper” and owner of
a watercraft you are responsible for
damage to other crafts caused by the
wake of your watercraft. Allow no one
to throw refuse overboard.
Don’t forget that all persons must assist other boaters in an emergency.

GETTING UNDERWAY
To Wear
The operator and passenger(s) must
wear a Coast Guard approved Personal Flotation Device (PFD) that is
suitable for PWC use.
An operator and the watercraft’s passenger(s) should have ready access
to shatterproof glasses should riding
conditions or personal preference warrant. Wind, water spray and speed
may cause a person’s eyes to water
and create blurred vision.
The operator and passenger(s) of
PWCs must wear protective clothing,
including:
– a wet suit bottom or thick, tightly
woven, snug fitting clothing that
provides equivalent protection.
Thin bike shorts for example would
not be appropriate. Severe internal
injuries can occur if water is forced
into body cavities as a result of
falling into water or being near jet
thrust nozzle. Normal swimwear
does not adequately protect against
forceful water entry into the lower
body opening(s) of males or females.
– footwear,
gloves
and
goggles/glasses are also recommended. Some type of lightweight, flexible foot protection
is recommended. This will help
reduce possible injury, should you
step on sharp underwater objects.
NOTE: The use of a helmet is not
recommended for recreational riding.
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.

To Bring
Always carry the regulatory safety
items and have them conveniently
on board available for use. Check
the local regulations or consult your
authorized Sea-Doo dealer. Such required safety items usually include,
without limitation, a sound signaling
device such as a whistle, a watertight
flashlight or approved flares, a buoyant heaving line, an anchor and rope*,
a bailer*, and an appropriate fire extinguisher*. The items marked with
a “*” are not required in Canada if all
persons on board a PWC are wearing
a PFD.
A cellular telephone in a waterproof
bag or container has also been found
to be beneficial to boaters when in distress or just for contacting someone
on shore.
For safety reasons and proper care,
always perform “Daily Preoperation
Checks” as specified in your Operator’s Guide before operating your
watercraft.
Keep the engine shut-off cord (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
cord from PWC to avoid unauthorized
use by children or others. If operator
falls off the watercraft and safety lanyard is unattached, the watercraft will
not stop.
To Do
Read and understand all warning/caution labels on your Sea-Doo PWC,
your Operator’s Guide, all other safety
documents, and watch properly your
Safety Videocassette, 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.

OPERATION
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 any other craft, this PWC has no
brake. Stopping distance will vary depending on initial speed, load, wind,
and water conditions. Practice stopping and docking in a safe, traffic free
area to have an idea of how long it will
take to stop the watercraft under varying conditions.
Maintaining or increasing speed may
be necessary to avoid a collision.
Safe Riding
Always keep in mind that as the throttle lever is released to idle position,
less directional control is available, and
as the engine is off, directional control
is lost. You need throttle to steer.
Ride within your limits and level of
riding ability. Avoid aggressive maneuvers to reduce the risk of loss of
control, ejection and collision. Understand and respect the performance or
your watercraft.
Always ride responsibly and safely.
Use common sense and courtesy.
While your watercraft has the capacity of operating at high speeds, it
is strongly recommended that high
speed operation only be applied when
ideal conditions exist and are permitted. Higher speed operation requires
a higher degree of skill and increases
the risk of severe injuries.
The forces generated on the body
of riders while turning, negotiating
waves or wakes, operating in choppy
waters, or falling off the watercraft,
especially at higher speeds, may
cause injury including the possibility of broken legs and other bones or
more serious injuries. Remain flexible
and avoid sharp turns.
In shallow water, proceed with caution
and at very low speeds. Grounding
or abrupt stops may result in injury.
Debris may also be picked up and be
thrown rearward by the jet pump onto
people or property.
Do not use the watercraft’s reverse, if
so equipped, to stop. You or your passenger(s) could be violently ejected
forward onto the handlebars or even
off the watercraft onto the hazard.
PWCs are not designed for night-time
operation.
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.
To prevent accidental starting, always
detach the safety lanyard from the watercraft 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.
14
___________
Manoeuvrability of the
Watercraft/Towing
Do not overload the watercraft or take
on more passengers than designated
for the particular watercraft. Overloading can affect maneuverability,
stability and performance.
Avoid adding on accessories, or equipment which may alter your control of
the watercraft.
The watercraft may be fitted with tow
eyelets which can be used to attach a
ski rope.
Riding with a passenger(s) or pulling
a tube, skier or wakeboarder makes
the watercraft handle differently and
requires greater skill.
Always respect the safety and comfort
of your passenger(s) and person being towed on skis, wakeboard or other
water products.
Always carry an observer when pulling
a tube, skier or wakeboarder, proceed
with only as much speed as required
and follow the observer’s instructions.
Unless absolutely necessary, do not
make tight, sharp turns. Keep a safe
distance from the docks, other swimmers, craft or objects.
Use a tow rope of sufficient length and
size and make sure it is adequately secured to your watercraft. While some
craft are equipped or can be fitted with
a specially designed towing mechanism avoid installing a tow pole on a
PWC. It can become a hazard should
someone fall on it.
Be advised that serious injury can result if the tow rope becomes slack during a tight turn or when circling. The
rope could become wrapped around
the neck or limbs of a person that has
fallen in the water.

With wakeboard and/or rack installed,
operate with extra caution: never perform agressive maneuvers including
spin-out; never jump waves; use common sense and limit speed. Otherwise, wakeboard could detach or occupants could fall off and get injured
against the wakeboard or rack.
Don’t forget: Ride smart from the
start and we all win!

CONTROLS/INSTRUMENTS/EQUIPMENTS
FUNCTIONS
1) Safety Lanyard
(engine cut-off cord)
The safety lanyard cap should be securely snapped onto its post to be fully
operational.
Pulling the safety lanyard cap from its
post stops the engine operation.
 WARNING
While engine can be stopped using the engine start/stop button,
good habits recommend that the
safety lanyard also be disconnected when stopping.
Attach the safety lanyard to the operator’s Personal Flotation Device (PFD)
and snap the cap to the post 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.
F18L0QY

2
1. Safety lanyard cap on the post
2. Safety lanyard secured on operator’s PFD
 WARNING
Should the engine be stopped,
watercraft directional control is reduced. Always disconnect safety
lanyard when watercraft is not in
operation in order to prevent accidental engine starting or to avoid
unauthorized use by children or
others or theft.
If engine is not started within 5 seconds after installing the safety lanyard
on its post, 4 very short beeps every 3
second interval will sound for approximately 4 hours to remind you to start
the engine or to remove safety lanyard. Afterwards, the beeps will stop.
The same will occur when safety lanyard is left on its post 5 seconds after
engine is stopped.
Always ensure safety lanyard is not
left on its post after engine is stopped.
IMPORTANT: Leaving the safety lanyard on its post when engine is not
running will slowly discharge the battery.
Digitally Encoded Security
System (DESS)
The safety lanyard cap specifically contains an electronic circuit that gives it a
unique electronic serial number. This
is the equivalent of a conventional key.
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.
To have additional safety lanyard, refer
to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.

Limited-Speed Operation
The 4-TEC models also offers a special
safety lanyard -- the SEA-DOO Learning KeyTM -- which electronically limits the speed of the watercraft to approximately 55 km/h (35 MPH) therefore enabling first time users and less
experienced operators to learn how to
operate the watercraft while gaining
the necessary confidence and control.

away from steering moving parts
(nozzle, side vanes, linkage etc.)
To start engine, depress and hold the
start/stop button. Release immediately after engine is started.
To stop engine, depress the start/stop
button. When stopped, disconnect
safety lanyard from the post. It is
suggested to release throttle lever
first.

of the supercharger clutch.
NOTE: Use of any oil that is not recommended may void Bombardier’s
limited warranty.
CAUTION: Do not add any additives to the recommended oil. Beware that oils not recommended by
Bombardier may contain additives
(friction modifiers) that may cause
inappropriate slippage of the supercharger and eventually lead to premature wear. For this reason, oils
other than Bombardier 4-stroke oil
SAE 10W-40 (P/N: 219 700 346) or an
approved equivalent are not recommended.
All Engines
CAUTION: Never use any 2-stroke

on this engine, it is necessary to
warm-up engine and to let it idle for
30 seconds before shutting it off.
Thereafter it is necessary to wait
30 seconds. Then, the oil can be
checked. This is required to allow the
oil to properly level in the different oil
chambers. Otherwise, you will have
a false oil level reading.
– Watercraft must be level. Check oil
level either with watercraft in water
or out of water. Engine should be
warm.
CAUTION: Never run engine
longer than 5 minutes. Drive line
seal has no cooling when watercraft
is out of water.

NOTE: Every time oil is added in
engine, the complete procedure explained above must be done (engine restarted, idling for 30 seconds,
30 seconds waiting time and then,
rechecking the oil level). This is required to allow the oil to properly
transfer in the different oil chambers
and to then level. Otherwise, you will
have a false oil level reading.
NOTE: When available, it is recommended to use biodegradable
antifreeze compatible with internal
combustion aluminum engines. This
will contribute to protect the environment.
Cooling system must be filled with water and antifreeze solution (50% water, 50% antifreeze).
Bombardier sells premixed coolant
with freezing protection up to -37°C
(-35°F) (P/N 293 600 038).
To prevent antifreeze deterioration, always use the same brand. Never mix
different brands unless cooling system is completely flushed and refilled.

BREAK-IN PERIOD
CAUTION: Scrupulously follow the
instructions of this section. Failure
to do so may reduce the engine’s life
and/or performance.
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, throttle
lever should not be depressed more
than 3/4, however, brief acceleration
and speed variations contribute to a
good break-in.
CAUTION: Continued wide open
throttle runs and prolonged cruising without speed variations should
be avoided, this can cause engine
damage during the break-in period.
NOTE: Never add oil in fuel tank during break-in period.
10-Hour Inspection
It is highly recommended that after
the first 10 hours of operation, the
watercraft be checked by an authorized Sea-Doo 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.

Safety Lanyard and
Engine Start/Stop Button
Position shift lever in neutral. Ensure
that both switches operate properly.
Start engine and stop it using each
switch individually.
 WARNING
Should the safety lanyard cap is
loose or fail to remain on its post,
replace it immediately in order to
avoid unsafe use.
Water Flow in Exhaust
Manifold (only when
temperature is below or
close to freezing point)
In Northern areas, if watercraft is to
be used when temperature is below or
close to freezing point (0°C (32°F)) or if
watercraft was left unused while temperature was below or close to freezing point, water may be frozen in the
supply hose going to the exhaust manifold. This could cause exhaust cooling system overheating. To ensure it
is properly working, do the following
prior to using the watercraft:
– The procedure is to be performed
with watercraft out of water.
– Connect a garden hose to the flushing connector at jet pump.
– Perform the flushing operation as
explained in POST-OPERATION
CARE.
– Ensure water flows out of jet pump.
Otherwise, water is frozen in supply hose and restricts water flow.
Do not operate the watercraft in
this condition.
NOTE: Pay attention that some water
will also flow out of exhaust outlet.
Make sure water is effectively flowing
out of jet pump.
NOTE: When water freezes, no damage to engine components will occur
as water expands but it may cause
damage by preventing full flow of cooling water.
– Either wait until ice melt or pour
some hot water on supply hose going to exhaust manifold. Then, perform the flushing operation again
to make sure water properly flows
out of jet pump. If you need assistance, refer to an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer.
 WARNING
Do not use any electrical heating
device to heat the hose. Electrical
devices may generate sparks that
would ignite fuel vapors that might
be present in the bilge causing a
fire or an explosion.
– Ensure to drain bilge if water is
present.
CAUTION: Operating watercraft
with frozen water in supply hose
might lead to engine components
damage.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
 WARNING
 WARNING
Always perform the PRE-OPERATION 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.
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.
The shift lever should be in the forward position in order for the watercraft to advance.
Neutral and Reverse
 WARNING
Never use jet pump components
as a supporting point to board
the watercraft. Shift lever should
only be used when the engine is
idling and watercraft is completely
stopped. Never rev the engine
at high RPM in reverse. Do not
use reverse to stop the watercraft.
Only use reverse at slow speed
and for the shortest time possible.
Always ensure the path behind
is clear of objects and persons
including children playing in shallow water.
To find the neutral, set in reverse then
push back until the watercraft stops
moving backwards.
The reverse gate will be in the middle
position, directing half of the thrust toward the front of the watercraft to minimize watercraft movement.
F18J06Y
TYPICAL
 WARNING
Whenever the engine is to be
started, the operator and passenger(s) should always be properly
sitting on the watercraft and be
wearing protective clothing including a Coast Guard approved
PFD and a wet suit bottom.
 WARNING
When the watercraft is in neutral
position, the drive shaft and impeller are still turning.

When first using the watercraft, the
operator should become familiar with
the use of the variable trim system
(VTS) at varying speeds and water conditions. A mid-range trim is generally
used when cruising. Experience alone
will dictate the best trim for the conditions. During the watercraft break-in
period, when lower speeds are recommended, it is an excellent opportunity
to gain familiarity of trim adjustment
and its effects.
When the nozzle is positioned in an
upward angle, the water thrust directs
the bow of the watercraft upward.
This position is used to optimize high
speed.

RXP Models
Variable Trim System
(if so equipped)
The variable trim system (VTS)
changes the angle of the jet pump
nozzle to provide the operator with a
fast, effective system to compensate
for load, thrust, riding position and water conditions. Correctly adjusted, it
can improve handling, reduce porpoising, and position the watercraft at its
best riding attitude to attain maximum
performance.

When the nozzle is directed downward, the bow is forced downward
and enhances the watercraft turning
capabilities. As with any watercraft,
speed and operator body position and
movement (body English), will determine the degree and sharpness of the
watercraft turn. Porpoising can be reduced or eliminated if the nozzle is
downward and speed is adjusted proportionately.
All Models
Steering
F18J09Y
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.
 WARNING
Directional control is reduced
when the throttle is released
and/or when engine is off.

The watercraft behaves differently
with a passenger and requires greater
skill. The passenger should always
grip the seat strap or grab handle.
Reduce speed and avoid sharp turns.
Avoid choppy water conditions when
carrying a passenger.
CAUTION:
Combustion engine
needs air to operate; consequently
this watercraft can not be totally
watertight. Any maneuvers such
as figure eights etc., that cause
the upper deck to be under water
may cause severe engine problems
due to water ingestion. Refer to
SPECIAL PROCEDURES and LIMITED WARRANTY contained in this
guide.
Off-Power Assisted Steering
System (O.P.A.S.)
The Off-Power Assisted Steering
(O.P.A.S.) system uses a dual side
vanes design that assists the watercraft steering in deceleration, to
redirect watercraft path when steering is turned after throttle has been
released or engine stopped.
The side vanes on the rear sides of the
hull, turn as the steering is turned to
assist the watercraft turning. At first,
carefully experiment turning with this
system.
F18K03Y
1
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.
When throttle is released and engine
RPM drops, the side vanes are automatically lowered thus assisting steering control.

SPECIAL PROCEDURES
Monitoring System
To assist you when using the watercraft, a system monitors the electronic components of the EMS (engine management system) and other
components of the electrical system.
When a fault occurs, it sends visual
messages through the information
center and/or audible signals through
a beeper to inform you of a particular
condition. Refer to the INFORMATION CENTER for the displayed messages and the TROUBLESHOOTING
section for the beeper coded signals
chart.
When minor faults occur, the fault and
message/beeper will disappear automatically if the condition does not exist
anymore.
Releasing throttle and letting the engine returning at idle speed may allow
normal operation to come back. If it
does not work, try removing and reinstalling the safety lanyard on its post.
The electronic system will react differently depending on the fault type. In
severe failure, the engine might not be
allowed to be started. In other cases,
the engine will operate in limp home
mode. See below.
When a fault occurs, see an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer as soon as possible for
inspection.
Limp Home Modes
Besides the signals as seen above, the
EMS may automatically set default parameters to ensure the adequate operation of the watercraft if an electronic
component is not operating properly.
Depending on the severity of the malfunction, the watercraft speed may be
reduced and not allowed to reach its
top speed as usual.
80
In this mode, it may be necessary to
depress the throttle quite slowly to allow engine RPM to increase and operate the watercraft to go back home.
These performance-reduced modes
allow the rider to go back home which
would not be possible without this
advanced system.
Engine Overheating
CAUTION: If the monitoring
beeper continuously sounds, stop
engine as soon as possible.
Check coolant level. Refer to LIQUIDS. If engine still overheats, continue the following procedure.
Perform JET PUMP WATER INTAKE
AND IMPELLER CLEANING procedure described in this section.
When back to shore, flush exhaust
cooling system, refer to POST-OPERATION CARE.
If engine still overheats, refer to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer for servicing.
Engine Low Oil Pressure
CAUTION: If the monitoring
beeper continuously sounds, stop
engine as soon as possible.
Turn off engine as soon as possible.
Check oil level and refill.
Restart the engine. If this does not
correct the situation, do not run the
engine further. Refer to an authorized
Sea-Doo dealer for servicing.
CAUTION: Running engine with
low oil pressure may severely damage the engine.

Jet Pump Water Intake
and Impeller Cleaning
On-Beach Water Cleaning
 WARNING
 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.
Always remove safety lanyard cap
from its post to prevent accidental
engine starting before cleaning the
jet pump area.
Place a cardboard or a carpet beside
the watercraft to prevent scratching
when turning the watercraft for cleaning.
Rotate the watercraft to any side for
cleaning.
F18L13Z
TYPICAL
Clean the water intake area. If the system is still clogged, refer to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer for servicing.
CAUTION: Inspect water intake
grate for damage. Refer to an authorized Sea-Doo dealer for repair
as necessary.
Capsized Watercraft
The watercraft is designed so that it
should not turn over easily. Also two
sponsons mounted on the side of the
hull assist watercraft stability. If it
turns over, it will remain capsized.

 WARNING
CAUTION: Never try to crank or
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 safety
lanyard is NOT on its post then grab
the inlet grate, step on bumper rail and
use your weight to rotate the watercraft in any direction.
The 4-TEC engine features a tip-over
protection system (T.O.P.STM). When
watercraft tips over, engine is automatically stopped, then a valve is
closed to prevent engine oil to flow
back in intake system.
When watercraft is returned to its
normal operating position, engine can
then be started normally.
CAUTION: If watercraft has been
capsized for more than 5 minutes,
do not attempt to crank engine to
avoid water ingestion that would
damage the engine. See an authorized Sea-Doo dealer as soon as
possible.
CAUTION: If engine does not
crank, do not attempt to start engine anymore. Otherwise engine
could be damaged. See an authorized Sea-Doo dealer as soon as
possible.
As soon as possible, check for presence of water in the bilge. Drain as
necessary when back to the shore.
Submerged Watercraft
To limit damages to the engine, perform the following procedure as soon
as possible.
Drain bilge.
If it was submerged in salt water,
spray bilge and all components with
fresh water using a garden hose to
stop the salt corroding effect.
82
start the engine. Water trapped in
intake manifold would flow towards
the engine and may cause severe
damage to the engine.
Bring the watercraft to be serviced by
an authorized Sea-Doo dealer as soon
as possible.
CAUTION: The longer the delay before you have the engine serviced,
the greater the damage to the engine will be.
Water-Flooded Engine
CAUTION: Never try to crank or
start the engine. Water trapped in
intake manifold would flow towards
the engine and may cause severe
damage to the engine.
Bring the watercraft to be serviced by
an authorized Sea-Doo dealer as soon
as possible.
CAUTION: The longer the delay before you have the engine serviced,
the greater the damage to the engine will be. Failure to have the engine properly serviced may cause
severe engine damage.
Fuel-Flooded Engine
When the engine does not start after
several attempts, the engine may be
fuel-flooded. Proceed as follows.
To prevent fuel to be injected and also
to cut the ignition at the engine cranking, proceed as follows.
While engine is stopped, fully depress
throttle lever and HOLD for cranking.
Crank engine several times.

 WARNING
When disconnecting coil from
spark plug, always disconnect coil
from main harness first. Never
check for engine ignition spark
from an open coil and/or spark
plug in the engine compartment
as spark may cause fuel vapor to
ignite.
Remove ignition coils.
CAUTION: Ensure there is no dirt
in coil holes prior to removing the
spark plugs. Otherwise, dirt would
fall into cylinder and will damage
the internal components.
Remove spark plugs.
NOTE: After untightening the spark
plugs, a coil may be used to pull the
spark plugs out. Simply bring the coil
down to spark plug and "hook" it to
then extract spark plug.
Install new spark plugs if available or
dry spark plugs using a rag.
Cover spark plug holes with a rag.
Crank engine several times while
keeping throttle fully depressed.
Reinstall spark plugs and ignition coils.
Install clean dry spark plugs if possible.
Reconnect ignition coil connector.
NOTE: Prior to inserting the ignition coil to its location, apply some
Molykote 111 grease (P/N 413 707
000) around the seal area that touches
the spark plug hole. After installation,
ensure the seal seats properly with
the engine top surface.
To reinstall engine cover, push it downward until it snaps.
Start engine as explained above. If engine continues to flood, see an authorized Sea-Doo dealer.
Towing the Watercraft
in Water
Special precautions should be taken
when towing a Sea-Doo watercraft in
water.
Maximum recommended towing
speed is 24 km/h (15 MPH).
When towing your watercraft in water,
pinch the water supply hose from the
impeller housing to the exhaust manifold with a large hose pincher (P/N 529
032 500).
F01B23Y
This will prevent the exhaust cooling
system from filling which may lead to
water being injected into and filling
the engine. Without the engine running there isn’t any exhaust pressure
to carry the water out the exhaust outlet.
CAUTION: Failure to do this may
result in damage to the engine. If
you must tow a stranded watercraft
in water and do not have a hose
pincher, be sure to stay well below the maximum towing speed of
24 km/h (15 MPH).
To ease access to the hose, the vent
tube can be temporarily removed.
CAUTION: Never run engine without supplying water to the exhaust
cooling system when watercraft is
out of water.

general and in no way a complete listing of the rules and regulations pertaining to the EPA requirements on exhaust emissions for marine products.
For more detailed information on this
subject, you may contact the following locations:
Manufacturer’s Responsibility
Beginning with 1999 model year engines, PWC manufacturers of marine engines must determine the exhaust emission levels for each engine
horsepower family and certify these
engines with the United States of
America Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA). An emissions control
information label, showing emission
levels and engine specifications, must
be placed on each vehicle at the time
of manufacture.
Dealer’s Responsibility
When performing service on all 1999
and more recent Sea-Doo watercrafts
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

MAINTENANCE
 WARNING
Only perform procedures as detailed in this guide. It is recommended that the assistance of
an authorized Sea-Doo dealer be
periodically obtained on other
components/systems not covered
in this guide. Unless otherwise
specified, engine must not be running and the safety lanyard must
be removed from its post for all
maintenance procedures. Never
use jet pump components or side
vanes to lift the watercraft. Certain components in the engine
compartment may be very hot.
Direct contact may result in skin
burn. When operating the engine
while the watercraft is out of the
water, the heat exchanger in the
ride plate may become very hot.
Avoid any contact with ride plate
as burns may occur.
Lubrication
Anticorrosion Protection
Throttle Cable
Lubricate the throttle cable with
BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant or
equivalent.
Electrical Connections
As necessary, apply anticorrosion
product such as dielectric grease on
battery posts and all exposed cable
connectors.
CAUTION: Do not lubricate connectors of the Multi-Purpose Electronic Module (MPEM) and the engine Electronic Control Unit (EMS
ECU).
Additional Lubrication
BOMBARDIER LUBE lubricant or
equivalent will help prevent corrosion
of metallic parts and maintain proper
operation of moving mechanisms.
 WARNING
Do not lubricate the safety lanyard
post.
Ski/Wakeboard Post (if so equipped)
Lubricate ski/wakeboard post through
all its length. Pull out then push in several times to distribute the lubricant.
Reverse Gate
Lubricate pivoting points and mechanism.
Throttle Cable Inspection
Throttle Cable
Depress and release the throttle lever.
It should operate smoothly and return
to its initial position without any hesitation. There must be a small amount
of free-play when throttle lever is released. Refer to an authorized SeaDoo dealer if necessary.
CAUTION: Never attempt to adjust
the idle speed through the throttle
body tamper proof screw. If so, it
would impair the idle speed stability. Besides, no adjustment could
be performed by the dealer nor the
factory to correct the idle speed.
The throttle body would need to be
replaced at the customer’s expense.

watercraft from defects in material or workmanship for the period and under the
conditions described below.
All genuine Bombardier parts and accessories, installed by an authorized Bombardier dealer (as hereinafter defined) at the time of delivery of the Sea-Doo personal watercraft, carry the same warranty as that of the personal watercraft.
A GPS receiver may be supplied by Bombardier as standard equipment on certain
2004 Sea-Doo personal watercraft. The GPS receiver is covered by the limited
warranty issued by the GPS receiver’s manufacturer and is not covered by this
Bombardier limited warranty.
Use of the product for racing or any other competitive activity, at any point, even
by a prior owner, will render this warranty null and void.
2. WARRANTY COVERAGE DURATION
This warranty will be in effect from the date of delivery to the first retail consumer
or the date the product is first put into use, whichever occurs first and for a period
of:
a) TWELVE (12) CONSECUTIVE MONTHS for private use owners, except emission related components providing input to emission control. Sensors are
covered for TWENTY-FOUR (24) CONSECUTIVE MONTHS OR 200 HOURS
OF ENGINE USE whichever occurs first.
b) FOUR (4) CONSECUTIVE MONTHS for commercial use owners, except emission related components providing input to emission control. Sensors are
covered for TWENTY-FOUR (24) CONSECUTIVE MONTHS OR 200 HOURS
OF ENGINE USE whichever occurs first. A personal watercraft is used commercially when it is used in connection with generating income or any work
or employment during any part of the warranty period. A personal watercraft
is also used commercially when, at any point during the warranty period, it
has commercial tags or is licensed for commercial use.
The repair or replacement of parts or the performance of service under this warranty does not extend the life of this warranty beyond its original expiration date.

part repaired or replaced under the terms of this warranty statement is warranted
by Bombardier for the remainder of the warranty period of the original part. All
parts replaced under this limited warranty become the property of Bombardier.
Maintenance receipts and records should be transferred to each subsequent
owner of the personal watercraft.
Owner’s Warranty Responsibilities
As the personal watercraft engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your Operator’s Guide. Bombardier
recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your personal
watercraft engine, but Bombardier cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of
receipts or your failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled maintenance.
As the personal watercraft engine owner, you should however be aware that
Bombardier may deny you warranty coverage if your personal watercraft engine
or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved
modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your personal watercraft engine to an authorized Bombardier dealer as soon as a problem exists. The warranty repairs will
be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.

BOMBARDIER INTERNATIONAL LIMITED
WARRANTY: 2004 SEA-DOO® PERSONAL
WATERCRAFT
1. SCOPE
Bombardier Inc. (“Bombardier”) warrants its Sea-Doo personal watercraft from
defects in material or workmanship for the period described below.
All genuine Bombardier parts and accessories, installed by an authorized
Bombardier distributor/dealer (as hereinafter defined) at the time of delivery
of the Sea-Doo personal watercraft, carry the same warranty as that of the
personal watercraft.
A GPS receiver may be supplied by Bombardier as standard equipment on certain
2004 Sea-Doo personal watercraft. The GPS receiver is covered by the limited
warranty issued by the GPS receiver’s manufacturer and is not covered by this
Bombardier limited warranty.
Use of the product for racing or any other competitive activity, at any point, even
by a prior owner will render this warranty null and void.
2. WARRANTY COVERAGE DURATION
This warranty will be in effect from the date of delivery to the first retail consumer
or the date the product is first put into use, whichever occurs first and for a period
of:
a) TWELVE (12) CONSECUTIVE MONTHS, for private recreational use.
b) FOUR (4) CONSECUTIVE MONTHS, for commercial use. A personal watercraft is used commercially when it is used in connection with generating income or any work or employment during any part of the warranty period. A
personal watercraft is also used commercially when, at any point during the
warranty period, it has commercial tags or is licensed for commercial use.
The repair or replacement of parts or the performance of service under this warranty does not extend the life of this warranty beyond its original expiration date.
3. CONDITIONS TO HAVE WARRANTY COVERAGE
This warranty coverage is available only on Sea-Doo personal watercraft purchased as new and unused by its first owner from a Bombardier distributor/dealer
authorized to distribute Sea-Doo products in the country in which the sale occurred (“Bombardier distributor/dealer”), and then only after the Bombardier
specified pre-delivery inspection process is completed and documented.
Warranty coverage only becomes available upon proper registration of the product by a Bombardier dealer. Such limitations are necessary in order to allow
Bombardier to preserve both the safety of its products, and also that of its consumers and the public. Routine maintenance outlined in the Operator’s Guide
must be timely performed in order to maintain warranty coverage. Bombardier
reserves the right to make warranty coverage contingent upon proof of proper
maintenance.

4. WHAT TO DO TO OBTAIN WARRANTY COVERAGE
The customer must notify a servicing Bombardier distributor/dealer within two

present to the Bombardier distributor/dealer, proof of purchase of the product and

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