    Question how to change antifreeze sea doo RXT 260 RS ?

    Hi guys, I tell you the last day I left to navigate the back I realized that the coolant can lid was open.
    My level was below the MIN so I wanted to change all this other antifreeze http://www.pidenosaceite.com/product...g-life-30.html

    You see this antifreeze MOTUL correct?

    Someone could please post pictures of how I have to empty and refill the coolant circuit?


    thank you very much

    There is a small Allen head bolt in the rear center of the ride plate. Take that out and drain all the coolant. Tilt the ski back on the trailer once it starts trickling out to get the last bit out. Refill through the reservoir located in the engine compartment. Don't forget to put that bolt back in the rideplate before doing so

    don't do this. You will have air bubbles in the system if you plug it up before you add coolant.

    The drain plug for your boat is the center bolt on your ride plate.

    unscrew drain plug and let all old coolant drain out
    Pour 1 Gal of distilled water in the coolant tank and let that drain out too
    Buy 2 Gals of green coolant NOT Orange!
    (with a buddy) start pouring coolant in the coolant tank reservoir and wait until there are no more farts and air bubbles and coolant is pouring out the drain plug in a steady stream. This effectivly bleeds the system forcing out any air bubbles
    Plug drain hole (while still filling coolant reservoir) until the coolant reaches between the min and max lines
    Go to boat ramp and back trailer into the water keeping boat attached to trailer.
    Run boat until it gets up to operating temperature at which point the thermostat will open and flow coolant.
    fill reservoir again
