    Clean the fuel strainer under the lip of the hull, above the engine.

    In 2000 the fuel lines held up fine, no need to replace them. Grease the driveshaft carrier bearing, change the oil filter, and change the pump oil. Inspect the wear ring for wear or damage. Replace if needed. Change the spark plugs if they are black. I'd run a can of Sea-Foam through the fuel system too...just to make sure the carbs are clean.

    If the fuel smells old, siphon it out and replace it.

    Other than that...you have a great ski. Enjoy!

    BTW...check your gas tank straps. I just found all three broken on my replacement 00 XP. My XP had the the two front straps broken, probably from the impact of the accident (was t-boned). The ski I bought was probably turned upside-down from the dealer with a full tank of gas.

    Anyway...it's not going to be easy to replace them...

    Ok sounds like pretty standard procedure, but where is the oil for the pump? and how do I change it? What should I put in it to refill? How many quarts do I need? Thanks.

    oil filter.....

    hey ,when you change out the oil filter,do you have to bleed it or anything? because the filter will be empty when you install it and wont that cause an air bubble in the line? if you do have to bleed it...how do u do that?
    thanks

    explude I did mine its pretty easy go to your dealer and get the pump oil pull the 2 allen bolts out for the steering then the 2 for the power trim. You will see a cone in the center of your jet drive 3 small allens hold that. I left the cables for the steering and the trim just moved them aside. Take the three small allens out for the cone and pull it off. The oil is inside there. I bought 2 new OPrings as well just in case (they are pretty cheap). Replace Oring put the cone back on one allen in the outside is for filling it. I havent filled mine yet but from what I read on here fill it to the top with the hole on top and put the rest back together. I want to know more about the oil filter change do we have to bleed it anything more specific on it?
