Thread: Wd-40 on engine

  1. #1

    Wd-40 on engine

    I was told by the dealer that after every ride it is safe to spray wd-40 all over the engine / rubber hoses/ everywhere on the machine. Anyone have thoughts on this???

    NO! don't do it. WD-40 is sometimes not nice to rubber.
    I use Seadoo lube, but usually only after riding in salt water.

    Do you know if the WD-40 will harm any rubber on the newer sea doos? I have spoke to some people who have stated that they have been using wd-40 for years with no issues on their sea doos.

    Side note, I only ride in salt water.

    I can't believe your dealer told you that wd-40 is ok to use, it will deteriorate the rubber hoses over time, just use the seadoo lube or some marine silicone spray is ok also

    WD-40 will also attract dirt

    Use Silicone spray

    Yes, the mechanic's personally told me wd-40 could be sprayed over everything and that is what they have been using on all their machines after they clean them.

    Use FLUID FILM if you ride SALTWATER and you want the BEST corrosion protection !!

    1 part of the issue with ALL petro based sprays is the water seal in the EFI plugs are not 100% tolerant, so after time you will get salt water into the connection /causing corrosion eventually , then the problems begin.....doesnt happen over night

    Cool

    Wd-40 does work very well on the metal but I wouldn't get it on the hoses.
    I know a lot of people who use it on there skis.

    Do you know of anyone that has had a problem with the ski after using the wd-40? If so, what was the issue?
