Hello.

Earlier this evening, I was checking out my new '17 Spark 900HO 3-seater when I noticed that it has just one drain plug. There is another "tube" on the other side of the nozzle that looks like it should have one, too, but it doesn't. Did I lose a plug, or is there only supposed to be one?

Thanks in advance,

Dave

Thanks for the information.

FWIW, I did read the Owner's Manual -- that's how I learned about the Sport mode, IBR, and the 5-hour break-in time. It's also where I learned how to fix my steering, which was off to the left quite a bit until I adjusted it.

One section of the manual says to tighten the drain plug before every ride, and on another page, there is a diagram of the the plug. The reason I posted the question is that I noticed a similar port on the left side of the jet. I couldn't find anything in the manual, so I did a search. I found lots of information about Sea Doo "drain plugs" (<--plural), but I could not find anything about the number of plugs on a Spark. Even though the manual says "plug" and shows one plug, I just wanted to be sure. I've been a snowmobiler for almost 40 years, but this is my first PWC. I'll try to ask better questions in the future.

Thanks again,
Dave

Left plug is for jet system flushing (can be left unplugged for better and more efficient water circulation during riding).

Right plug is bilge drain. Used if water has leaked in to the engine storage orif engine is cleaned

Your question was fine. What's the point of a help forum if everyone's answers are: figure it out on your own 🙄
Your post helped me because I put my families spark in a weekend ago for the first time without my little brother with me and I didn't know it had plugs and it sat funny in the water and when we brought it out I was afraid one of the plugs had gotten lost.
So thanks for clearing that up for me with your post!
