Im in the same boat as you. Cant decide if i want to learn and take it on myself or just have someone do it. Ill keep eyes out and if i get any info ill be sure to let you know.
yeah that's the best thing to do with just about any toy, a car, bike, skii, etc.I figure that as long as I keep it in a warm garage it should be fine. Just follow the owners manual and things should go smoothly.
This is highly debated. I pull all my batteries and keep them in the garage and trickle them about once a month. I know several people that has killed batteries with a tender(AGM included).Should the battery go on a trickle charger?
I am fresh water only also and never did the pressurized hose thing on my 2 supercharged skies and they were fine. I do take the hose off the water box and extract any water from it and squirt some SD Lube in the water box before attaching hose back on?My spark is a few hours away. When I get to it in a few weekends time I am going to winterise it. It will sit in an unheated garage and it can still get below freezing even indoors so the water flushing thing is important to me.
It has iBR fitted.
Can anyone point me to where the attach point is for the exhaust flush? I guess its under the iBR cover. And what is the fitting? I can get a high pressure hose from the gas station but what's the fitting ?
I only ever use it in fresh water so have never flushed it. Fitting the factory flush kit I am told requires removing the iBR housing and the venturi. So it must be a permanent hose thats fitted. Not really worth it for me given I only want to flush it (with air) once a year
I would be sure to plug up any holes like the exhaust port in the back so No critters find a home for the winter.Thanks so much for the step by step. I think I can do most of that on my own. I don't have the air fitting and I don't use my skis in salt water so I don't flush them out either. I guess I need to find out what fitting it is. Also, I have no way to store them in a warm garage. They have the sea-doo covers but that's gonna be it. There will be plenty of snow and temps might drop as low as -30. Hopefully they'll make it through.
+1^ Good idea. I got my cover for about $50 on Amazon. Fits like a glove and way cheaper than the SeaDoo ones.
