START EARLEY: “It’s a good idea to get your ski out of storage a little early and start it up. If you’re taking it to a dealer to be summarized or get some repairs, try to do it before the summer, when dealers tend to get overwhelmed.
WARM UP: Coax your PWC out of hibernation. If you stored your Jet Ski with some fuel in the tank and did not use a fuel stabilizer, condition the fuel by adding a conditioner like Pennzoil’s Fuel System Cleaner and Stabilizer. However, if you experience a no start and the fuel seems stale, then take your pwc to a qualified technician where trained technicians are equipped to drain and dispose of fuel.
MAINTAIN LUBRICATIONS: If you own a 4 Stroke engine, and didn’t do it last fall, now’s a good time to change the engine oil and filter, and drain and replace pump oil. You will also want to add grease to all grease fittings to keep bearings and seals lubed. For those of you who own 2 strokes, top off the oil reserve with fresh two-cycle oil, then drain and replace pump oil. You would want to grease fittings too.
SECURE LOOSE ENDS: Check for loose wires. Check throttle and trim cables to make sure they work properly.
CHARGE YOUR BATTERY: Charge and reinstall the battery.
These tip will help you get a good start to summer fun.
