    Why would I need to have my Waverunner summerized?

    I purchased my first waverunner in August and had it winterized by the dealer, that I understand, I winterized my boat when I was done with it. What I don't understand is why I would have to have my waverunner summerized. Is this some kind of scam from my dealer to get more money? Is it something I can do myself? I never did it with my boat, never heard of summerized. Can someone please help me out.


    Thanks

    Its pretty much checking everything out, make sure everything it tight and lubed...if it was fogged....change the spark plugs after you run it for the first time....

    Battery check is important. Batteries often degrade during storage.

    Even with a recharge it is not uncommon for the battery to be weakened internally after storage. A proper battery test (after charging and resting) can sometimes reveal a weakened battery, even if it can still start the engine.

    Just run it for a little bit and change the spark plugs... charge your battery before you take off on the 1st trip.

    Did your dealership change oil when it was winterized??? If not then change it... depending on the hours you ride per year but most people change oil at the start of the riding season..


    Rip on....

    It is not necessary, but some dealerships will disconnect hoses to make sure everything drains. If they leave the hoses off and you go riding, it is going to be a short ride and you will be the new owner of the Titanic....If they winterized it and your not sure exactly what they did, they it might be best if they de-winterize it.

    If you have them change the oil make sure it isn't over filled when you get it home, seems to be pretty common.
