I've searched the forums, but cant seem to figure out my issue.
I am trying to flush antifreeze through my gts130, but I am not getting anything through. I hooked up my normal flush hose, and tried using both a drill pump and sump pump, but am getting no flow through the ski.
Any suggestions on what i'm doing wrong?

I get up on a ladder and pour the antifreeze down the hose and let gravity do the work. After that, I blow the flush input out with an air compressor as described in the manual (for my ski at least) for an added piece of mine. It gets cold here.

run on hose
Blow out cooling. - brap throttle then blow compressed air
hook up a drill pump or such. One end into flush. One end into gallon of A/F.
Start ski. Start pump.
A/F flows. Should come out exhaust and pump.
Then fog motor.

You should put your flush hose in 5 gal bucket with 50/50 anti freeze/water instead of rinsing with just fresh water.
No amount of blipping the throttle will remove all the water, so lower the remaining waters freezing point by adding antifreez

Honetly with the garbage they are passing off as fuel these days, you might be better off getting a siphon and removing all the fuel...I've seen gas go back in less than 2 months...

I pump my antifreeze through the skis with a bilge pump in a 5 gallon bucket. I don't really trust gravity feeding coolant in the motor. just my opinion.

leaving the fuel pump exposed is worse then any gas you can leave in the tank over the off season.
Of course if you a re a paintball fanatic and can fill the fuel tank with nitrogen for the off season......
NEVER leave the fuel tank of an injected engine empty ( unless the fuel pump is external..and the only pwc I've ever seen with an external FI pump is a tigershark 1100.)
I did manage to convince at least two stations around here to carry ethanol free..they re charging an arm/leg for it ( over $4 (still)) but it can make all the difference for the first outing of next season/

if you add 2 stroke oil to the fuel it will lube up the pump inside and out
then it will lube up the injectors and coat the valves and pistons

suck out most of it and stick it in your car, no since in letting it all go bad
you may need a small hose or pull off the fill hose of the tank to remove some gas
I only use good oil so its not cheap
IMO you only want a few gals (1-3) left in all winter
shoot for like 32:1+ or at least 4oz per gal
