    04 STX-15F maintenance questions... running smokey

    i just pulled out the ski and got it ready for the upcoming season.. has 41hrs on it, did an oil change using 10/40 syn motorcycle oil, i only run high octane in the ski. it was smoky in the water yesterday valve cover was hot to the touch but the manifold was cold... maybe it was just steam? the water temp is 44 degrees here in long island sound right now so maybe a thermostat not opening? plus is there any other preventive maintenance i should be doing to the pump or motor?

    my crystal ball seems to be on the blink and im not sure if im seeing smoke or steam? only you can answer that theres bulk amounts of info on maintenance posted on all the forums, wash it out with fresh water after each ride dry it out and coat everything with fluidfilm, all info should be in your manual
