:confused: Anyone got a brand/part number/model # of an extractor/pump to suction the oil? Perhaps available nationallly (like Wal-Mart/Home depot/O'Reily's/etc?) Any other tools needed to change oil?

What is a good part/model # etc., of a CLAMP to have on boat for emergency towing? Manual says you can't tow without and maybe a vice grip isn't correct? Is there some kind of clamp thats easily available nationally that one can share?

Coolant: Manual is ambigouus. One page (maintenace chart) says change it every 2 years/x hours. Another page mentions 3 years/x hours. It's LONG life coolant. What the real story? HOW often should you change it? HOW? A suction pump or is there a drain?

Do you really need to remove the spark plugs/oil cylinders for storage over winter months? I've had show cars in storage and never bothered (though they often were run an hour +monthly)

Anything that MUST be lubricated?

Etc...The owners manual mentions many items but, often lacks an explanation.

interested in this information as well. I will eventually get a shop manual but would rather some hands on knowledge from other users. also it might be to early to get an idea of whats right or whats wrong. Maybe by late summer (US) we will have a better understanding of whats best.
mostly from people taking their sparks to a shop/marina for service/winterizing and what they are doing per BRP instructions/recommendation and also savvy riders.

For the Oil change Google" Boat Oil Extractor" and read the reviews.
For the Clamp Google "Sea Doo Hose Pincher" and take your pic of venders.
Coolant Not till 2 full seasons .
I fog "Sea Doo Lube" The fuel injection ports- Not the plug holes. Simply unscrew the fuel bar -Dead Fire and spray in a few times.

Your users Manual is your "Best Friend."
