1. flushing the engine
2. washing the salty water from the engine comparetment

I use salt-away all over and inside. I use Fluid Film on the engine

if you ride in the salt its best to wash the engine compartment with water to
get rid of any harmfull salt buildup. After that just keep your seat open
overnight for the water to evaporate. If you keep your ultra outdoors then i
suggest you keep the seat on the ski, just dont fully close it as to keep an
opening for all the condensation to get out. That way the humidity will not
enter the engine. Also spray wd40 all over the engine just take care not to
spray on the superchargers belt.
Earthshaker your engine looks brand new wish we had that salt away here in the emirates.
Might order some online and try it out.

Use silicone spray (make sure its the clear kind not white) i heard from a couple people including the dealer that its much better than WD-40 I just cant remember why

Send a PM to Dano50.....in that PM provide a physical shipping address. He will ship you a free sample - no strings - no spam.
Guys, Fluid Film was developed specifically for the NAVY to protect metal from corrosion in DIRECT CONTACT with SEA WATER back in 1942....they've been using it ever since, as well Coast Guard and NASA.
It also happens to be a phenominal lubricant.....lasts WAY longer than anything you have on your shelf.
Ya, I sell it sure....my company services resale dealers and Aircraft related industry/machine shops/shotpeeners, etc..
If you buy it from me, a single case or a few cans is not gonna make me rich by any means...I offer it here to you guys for a great discount because this is one of my hobbies and Greenhulk has given his blessing and endorsement, (PM for pricing - remember i service resellers). It's more about getting the word out on a far superior product that will be the next houshold name. The mfg (Dano50) is now shifting to consumer marketing as it's way more friendly to the environment than your solvent cut products and that's the right direction.
If you're addicted to Fluid Film already and you show/demonstrate it to your local hardware store, PWC dealer, Bicycle dealer, General Store....wherever, and get them to order it from my company, I'll ship you a case of 11.75oz aerosols free.
Dealers have a two case minimum order.

ES turned me on to Fluid Film and it's made a believer out of me.
It's the best stuff I have ever used. The best thing about it is, it clings to a surface and will not run all over the place like silicone spray. I not only used it on my ski, I have squirted everything around my house that needed some lubricant. I'm tellin yah........ it's the s##t
