Thread: oil change!
10-25-2010, 05:33 PM #1
Need to do an oil change on a speedster 200 with twin 215hp.
I know how to do an oil change but how do you crank the engine without starting it if you are alone and cannot have any help. Unplug injectors and coils??
I have done a sportster 150 last week and was able to stretch long enough to hold throttle body wide open with one hand and push the start button with my foot but just can't do it on a 20 foot boat as I'm only 5'10'' ha ha.

Not sure if this works on the ski boats, but on the pwc's, you hold the throttle in 100% (wot) and crank the engine.... It won't start as the ecu doesn't allow it.
Better make sure though, as I can imagine on some cable throttle systems, it may actually start!
Not sure what years are covered for this method either.
Edit: I don't see how you can't do this? You're only meant to crank it for a few secs and hold the throttle wide open using the hand control? Maybe I can't picture your situation.

I had a 150, same as a ski... push the throttle lever to WOT and hit start...
