I am looking to put a little tool kit for myself together that would have everything I could possibly need to work on the spark.

I have all the tools I could need but I am wanting to put a minimalistic kit together for just for the spark.

This is my first PWC and am looking to soak up some knowledge, what else would you recommend to put in a kit as spares(what spare parts are a must and what is recommended)?

And for those curious I have a pineapple 3up with the convenience package and iBR on order.

not sure if you can really bring spare parts with you. its too early to tell which parts are the least reliable ones

but a general tool kit with the wrenches and sockets matching the bolts of the spark would be a good start. spark plug tool. filter remover if there even is one.

I don't think hes looking to take it with him, I believe what he's looking to do is put together some common knowledge of Sea Doos in order for him to do his own reparis and tinkers...

Yeah, there isn't much that can be changed on the water. I am looking to put a kit together for my car with all sockets, wrenches, pliers, torx bits, vise grips, etc.. to be able to do any required work at the cabin, parking lot or wherever anyone needs to do repairs.

I would also like to get a list going for all the most consumable parts(most likely to need replacement) like the wear ring, spark plugs, etc... not only for my reference but so anyone else here knows what they should have a few spares sitting around of, just in case.

Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for the replies.

I wish I could be of more help, but I don't have my sled yet. Plus I do think we will need at least a season on them before we get a really concrete idea of just what exactly is prone to wear.

As for tools however I think you're going to be ok with a basic ratchet/socket set, as well as all the variable bits, torx like you mentioned. You could probably also do well to have some heat shirk, a couple spare wires, Marrettes, strippers and pliers...

hope this helps...

When I get my Spark and start doing maintenance on it, I plan on doing youtube videos and tutorial write ups. But as stated previously, we won't be wrenching on these ski's till the end of season for maintenance.

I guess a little emergency kit would be fine, but in reality there isn't much you can do away from your garage. Unless a hose slips off or something. Carrying random parts is overkill. Remember; this is a brand new ski we are talking here.

In the kit a pair of channel locks, adjustable wrenches, basic screw driver kit, flash light with the batteries not in it(keep batteries in original container), box cutter, electrical tape, and duct tape would be all you need for emergency stuff. You can also buy one of those small socket wrench sets from your local tool store. They usually have SAE and metric. Ranging from 6mm-18mm and 1/4"-3/4". This would do you nicely...remember you may be with someone else who needs the metrics if you only need SAE or vice versa..and don't forget about your car.

Except for the wear ring impeller, to do any kind of maintenance, you are going to have to take off the top of the hull...I don't see that as an 'on the water' project...

I would maybe carry something to change out the wear ring impeller, it seems like a couple of those have to be replaced already because of sucking something up....

other then that, a general kit of wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers with flat, phillips and torx (which you will need to take of the top hull) is probably going to fix most of your general issues should one come up...if those don't do it, just go buy the tool you need when you need it, not beforehand...
