    Basic maintenance 1999 GTi

    I bought a 1999 GTi and I've taken it out a few times and I just love it.
    I want to make sure I take care of this thing as I'm supposed to.

    Can someone link me a "Sea Doo Maintenance For Dummies" article? Or simply reply and tell me (specifically how and using what) I should be doing.
    I know to run the correct (low ash) oil but I'm afraid that's all I know.
    Should I be greasing / oiling checking anything?
    I know searching turns up a couple of articles but I couldn't find one that was specific to my model or year. Everything I saw was much newer. I don't want to do something I'm not supposed to or worse not do something I am.

    I greatly appreciate your help. Thank you.

    I have a 2000 GTI and I just did the following maintenance - carb rebuild and change the "known problem" gray fuel lines with auto non-fuel injected lines. Your sea doo catalog will list the carb part number.

    The gray fuel lines are known to kill many sea doo's

    I just sold my 1999 gti to my mechanic. Where are u located? Maybe he sold it to you???

    I have a digital service manual I can try to get to u.

    Basically, start with the low ash oil (API TC oil). I used amsoil HPI which was cheaper than the sea doo stuff.

    Pm me ur email address and I can email u my maintenance sheet and service manual.

    Real world maintenance was:

    Lube flywheel a couple times a season or more often.

    Spark plugs every season

    Check pump oil at beginning of season, change the oil every other season.

    Inspect and clean fuel filter every season.

    On line oil filter every season

    Thanks for the help. Grant I sent you my email address.
    I got it from my neighbor. I asked him last night what maintenance he did regularly and he said "Uhh, put oil and gas in it".
    Stuff like the flywheel is what I'm looking for. Specifically how to and with what.
    I want to make sure this thing lasts. I'm recently divorced and I got this one and a Polaris SL 750 (in the shop currently getting carbs rebuilt) for my son and I to really enjoy the summer and spend quality time together and I don't want any surprises that could have been prevented with proper care.

    Thank you
