Winterise your Seadoo jetski

Author: Andrew Sutton

With our summer of sport now just a distant memory it’s come to that time of year when you need to winterise your Seadoo jet ski. Seadoo dealers should be able to help you ensure your jet ski is stored correctly so it’s in tip top condition when it comes out to play again next season.

Firstly, make sure you drain the water from your Seadoo jetski when it comes out of the water for the last time. When on a trailer, the Seadoo jet ski is usually tilted back. You should run the engine several times for no more than 30 seconds every time and then tilt the handle back and forth while it’s running to drain water from the engine.

Seadoo jetskis are pretty straight forward to clean so get some mild soap and water and wash away any algae, grime and water stains from the sides, seat and back. It’s really important no water is left in the hull of the Seadoo jetski when you’re cleaning. Then to give it an added protective coat and shine use a normal wax on the exterior.

Seadoo dealers should certainly advise you to fill the gas tank to the top before winter storage. If you want to keep the gas clean for next season make sure that you add stabiliser to the Seadoo jet ski. Once again, run the engine in 30 second bursts several times to ensure the stabiliser is mixed through the fuel of the Seadoo jetski before it goes into storage.

After this you need to remove the Seadoo jetski’s air filter for easy access to the carburetor. Then spray fogging oil in the carburetors and spark plug cylinders while the engine is idling. Make sure you continue this until the engine stalls and then replace the air filter.

Seadoo dealers will tell you to take out the spark plugs next. You need to ensure the wires are grounded first though. You can put a rag over each hole and push the start button to disperse the oil. Once this is complete all you need do with your Seadoo jet ski is replace the plugs and clean up any excess oil.

Your next step, as Seadoo dealers will advise, is to remove the battery, negative connection first. Ensure your Seadoo jetski battery is stored in a warm and clean area. Seadoo jetskis that are stored on trailers also run the risk of trailer tires rotting in the winter if you store them on dirt or gravel so make sure you cover them with plastic bags and put them on boards.

To keep them in the very best condition take them off the Seadoo jet ski and prop your trailer on blocks Lastly, place steel wool in the exhaust of any Seadoo jetskis to stop animals getting into the engine. With all this complete, you’re ready to cover and successfully store your ski for the winter months.
