    New owner of used PWC , To do check list

    I want to make sure that I have covered everything when buying a used PWC. I also wanted to make this list to contribute something and for future new owners.

    • Check compression
    • change spark plugs
    • check all connections (battery and electrical box)
    • Change all filters (fuel and oil) and water separator
    • Check to see if the ignition was updated
    • check sensors and test(overheat)
    • check for gray fuel hose and replace all hoses(fuel and oil)
    • rebuild the carbs with genuine parts.
    • make sure the bilge is clean and functioning properly
    • Clean and wax the ski
    • remove all old gas in the tank and hoses
    • check all hose clamps and replace if necessary
    • check battery and charge or replace
    • check to see if there is enough charge going to the battery
    • grease drive shaft with marine grade grease
    • grease all steering cables and throttle/chock cables
    • Grease the jet pump nozzle
    • disconnect second ground wire coming from the electrical box??? (not 100% about this one)
    • make sure it floats and don't forget the drain plug

    I think that's it. If I left something out please let me know or if there is something that is not needed let me know.
