    Just so I know for next year....

    This is my first year of owning a jetski and I must say I LOVE IT! I ahve a 2004 gtx limited. I got it winterized and everything. What do i do when it come time to put it in the water? Do i just go and drop it and ride it hard, or should i let it idle in the water for a bit and take it easy the first time out? thanks

    I always put my ski in the water and let it idle a bit. Then i run it easy until i reach normal operating temperature. I practice this every time out.

    summerization:

    1. Should be trickle charging or juicing the battery up periodically throughout the winter/storage period.
    2. Reconnect battery
    3. verify that all engine components and pump components are correctly installed
    4. remove spark plugs and crank the motor for 10 seconds just to squirt out any excess fogging fluids/lube
    5. re-install spark plugs (for the first start-up, i always have a used set of plugs set aside for summerization so all the crap from winterizing doesn't get all over my nice new plugs)
    6. start the ski and flush it on the hose for 2 minutes or so
    7. replace spark plugs with the newer plugs

    Have fun... it's pretty simple as u can see, and those are the steps i take altho maybe not neccessary, it's a good practice in my opinion.

    that a better answer for the 32 hits your post got?
