    Salt Water Flush Precautions?

    I was flushing my Sea-Doo out from salt water use today, while I was doing it I was checking a part in the engine bay. Anyways my head was somewhere else and I turned off the motor for a second then realized I was still flushing it, I then quickly turned on the engine within 2 seconds and kept flushing her. Nothing sounds different. Not sure if I should be concerned or take precautions. I've flushed this machine multiple times but for some reason I was just tunnel visioned on the engine.

    What year and model? You should be fine if it was for only a couple seconds. I would start it back up again with out the hose for a few seconds and blip the throttle. Then in a day or few hours after flush it and fog the engine.

    Just check your oil.
    If there's no water in it your ok.

    It depends how much water pressure you had coming thru the hose.

    But I still think your ok.

    You can leave the water going with the engine off for approx 2 minutes before the pipe fills with water and eventually flows back into the cylinders.

    You are fine.

    This is correct.

    Like you, I made a similar mistake with one of my Yamis last summer and I was told the same thing that SURF is saying. I never had any issues with the ski after the mistake.
