10 Essential Sea-Doo Parts & Annual Maintenance Tips

Post-Ride Maintenance Tips

1: Drain Plugs

Drain and rinse the engine compartment with fresh water after each ride in dirty or salt water.

Dirty or salt water can cause the mechanical components to corrode if left sitting in your vehicle.

2: Flush Adaptor

Flush the exhaust system after each ride in dirty or salt water.

Dirty or salt water can cause the exhaust components to corrode if left sitting in your exhaust system.

Spray an anticorrosion lubricant onto metallic components in the engine compartment every month or every 10 hours for salt water use.

Anticorrosion lubricant will help protect metallic components against corrosion caused by salt water, salt spray or dirt.

4: Anodes

Inspect sacrificial anode for signs of wear. Replace if required

Galvanic corrosion can cause major damage if not controlled.

Yearly Maintenance or every 100 hours of operations

Replace engine oil and filter.

It’s important to keep moving engine parts lubricated. Over time and usage, oil breaks down and wears out, making it less effective at lubricating critical engine components and absorbing friction heat. Filter must also be changed, since it’s
filled with dirty oil.

Inspect electrical connections and battery charge level. Ensure battery is fully charged. Recharge or replace it if required.

Electrical connections and batteries experience wear over time. Worn electrical components could cause a sudden loss of power to the vehicle.

7: Spark Plugs

Inspect spark plugs annually for signs of wear. Replace every two years

Dirty, fouled or worn out spark plugs can affect how your engine runs. For example, you may experience trouble with your engine starting reliably every time.

8: Wear Ring

9: Impeller

If you notice nicks, grooves or chips, ask your dealer to measure impeller and impeller wear ring clearance.

These components experience natural wear and tear. When the clearance becomes too big, pump cavitation can begin (which is severe damage to the propulsion system).

10: XPS Pre-Mixed Coolant

Check coolant level every year and replace every five years.

If your engine is not properly cooled, it will overheat. A low coolant level could mean there is a leak. The coolant breaks down over time, which can cause it to become ineffective at cooling the engine
