Jet skiing in 40 Degrees
hey guys my friend wants to break in his new ski. its a brand new SHO. how long should we let it warm up for? im sure the waters cold. i live in ny and im going to be jet skiing in the longisland sound or a harbor. the temp should be around 40 degrees, what should i bring with me worst case scenario. everything from gear to medical and tools. the ski has never been ran on the water yet so im alil bit worried. i wont be to far from the boat ramp so its not that bad. i just really want to stay warm. thanks guys.

i would imagine a 4 stroke would be a little less picky about temperatures than a 2 stroke, i could be wrong, but i'd imagine that the 2 strokes are much more dependant on heat for fuel atomization purposes and the whole expansion of the piston and cylinder. But obviously letting it warm up a lot is a good idea.

the winter pretty much is just going right now in ny. so where do you put the antifreeze in this ski? i have no idea how and we dont want the water to freeze in his brand new ski. so any advice would be great!

You can only run antifreeze through the hose fitting when you are flushing the ski.
The ski will run 100% in the cold weather i have had my ski's out in temperatures around 36 degrees without any problems with them.
Just wrap up well and you should be fine!

Make sure you warm that motor up well. Just as mentioned above.
