Thread: Oil changes

    Oil changes

    I have a 2006 GTX SC and a 2006 GTI SE, and am getting ready to change the oil. Last year, I bought the kits from Sea Doo at $60 a pop. We put about 15-20 hours a year on them, and wondered if we could just suck out the old oil, and add new, or if we need to change the filter every year.

    Spark plugs are 2.50 each so that's a no brainer....

    Filter too...Makes no sense to change the oil and leave a dirty filter in...its like taking a shower and putting dirty closes back on..defeats the purpose...
