    Exclamation Help with engine question please!

    Hi All

    I just bought my first used 2006 Yamaha VX 110 Deluxe yesterday. Today I when to a Yamaha dealer to buy some supplies and a guy from service department told me that it was OK to clean the engine compartment with fresh water (a little, no pressure) and then to spray the anti-oxidation-lubricant product in everything that is made up metal inside the engine compartment.... I did that and lifted the front of trailer (with the waverunner on) to rinse the water out through the plug holes.

    After reading the Owners Manual (page 3-36) it mentions to rinse the engine and engine compartment with a small amount of water.... I wonder how much is a "small amount of water" and if the water I poured in today might have caused any "engine damage" or anything I should worry about.

    As you can tell I am a "newbie" at this and I would greatly your help to have piece of mind (or run to Yamaha dealer to have it checked) and if this is a standard operating procedure that one should do after every use of the wave runner.

    Please help, thanks!

    what you did was fine, no problem

    though I would never add more water inside the engine compartment, my ski leaks in enough on its own - so no i wouldn't suggest you do this after every ride - maybe once or twice a year

    for now you might leave the seat off and let things dry out

    Cool

    Sorry, salt water condition requires motor flush inside and out, only way to remove salt is with fresh water. No pressure washer just garden hose, every time!!

    it is my personal preference to wash the ski and dry it, the outside. on the inside, i rinse it off with garden hose and salt-away. soak everything with some silicone spray or wd-40. a little goes a long way. then i get out the leaf blower and dry the inside. tilt the ski up in the driveway and let the excess water run out.
    i flush every time i ride with salt away.
    just my personal routine
    it takes me about 2 hours to get them done.
