    hi, you know its really simple, add a fuel stabilizer according to the directions on the bottle,make sure your fuel tank is at least 3/4 full of fuel, i use the yamaha brand myself. blow any water out a few times, spray a 5 second shot of the yamaha engine fogging oil in the engine where the hose leaves the filter box and enters the engine,spray into the engine, spray it in 5 seconds, start engine for 10 seconds, then shut off and put back on... disconnect battery and put on a a trickle charger... wash, wax, dry all out completely, cover and store it. i dont do the antifreeze...it is not needed. u may also want to prop open the back of the seat with a small towel, so the back of the seat is sitting about a inch up for extra ventilation, and if u have a shop vac i would quickly suck out any water left in the tube where you attach the water hose

    HERES FROM THE OWNERS MANUAL, HOPE YOU LIKE READING!

    Storage
    WARNING
    EWJ00330
    Always place the watercraft upright in a
    horizontal position when storing it, otherwise
    fuel could leak out into the engine or
    engine compartment, which could create a
    fire hazard.
    Storage for long periods of time, such as winter
    storage, requires preventive maintenance
    to ensure against deterioration. It is advisable
    to have the watercraft serviced by a Yamaha
    dealer prior to storage. However, the following
    procedures can be performed by the owner.
    EJU33542
    Flushing the cooling system
    Flushing the cooling system is essential to
    prevent it from clogging with salt, sand, or dirt.
    CAUTION:
    ECJ00121
    
    Do not supply water to the cooling water
    passages when the engine is not running.
    The water could flow back through
    the muffler into the crankcase, causing
    severe engine damage.

    
    Do not run the engine for more than 15
    seconds without supplying water or
    over 4000 r/min on land, otherwise the
    engine could overheat.

    (1) Place the watercraft in a horizontal position.
    (2) Remove the seat. (See page 28 for seat
    removal and installation procedures.)
    (3) Remove the flushing hose connector
    cap, and then insert the garden hose
    adapter into the flushing hose connector
    and turn it until it is securely connected.
    (4) Connect the garden hose adapter to a
    water tap using a garden hose.
    NOTE:
    A garden hose is not included and must be
    purchased separately.
    (5) Start the engine, and then immediately
    turn the water supply on until water flows
    out continually from the jet thrust nozzle.
    (6) Run the engine at idling speed for about
    3 minutes watching the engine condition.
    If the engine stops while flushing, turn the
    water supply off immediately and repeat
    the above steps.
    (7) Turn the water supply off, and then force
    the remaining water out of the cooling

    water passages by alternately squeezing
    and releasing the throttle lever for 10 to
    15 seconds.
    ( Stop the engine.
    (9) Remove the garden hose adapter and install
    the flushing hose connector cap.
    EJU33612
    Lubrication
    WARNING
    EWJ00260
    Do not spray flammable rust inhibitor
    products on engine surfaces while the engine
    is hot. The sprayed substance or propellants
    could catch fire.
    (1) Remove the seat. (See page 28 for seat
    removal and installation procedures.)
    (2) Loosen the clamp screw and disconnect
    the air intake duct.
    (3) Spray a rust inhibitor such as Yamaha
    Stor-Rite Engine Fogging Oil into the intake
    opening for 3 seconds.
    (4) Connect the air intake duct and tighten
    the clamp screw.
    (5) Start the engine in a well-ventilated area
    and let it run at idle for 15 seconds.
    CAUTION:
    ECJ00561
    Do not run the engine for more than 15
    seconds without supplying water, otherwise
    the engine could overheat.
    (6) Lubricate all cables such as the throttle
    and steering cables.
    NOTE:
    Use a Yamaha Power Cable Luber and
    Yamaha Lube-Zall to pressure-lubricate the
    cables and purge out any moisture between
    the inner and outer cables.
    (7) Lubricate the areas of the watercraft
    specified in
    Lubrication pointson page
    78.

    Do not smoke when refueling, and keep
    away from sparks, flames, and other
    sources of ignition.

    
    Stop the engine before refueling.

    
    Refuel in a well-ventilated area with the
    watercraft in a horizontal position.

    
    Do not stand or sit on the watercraft
    while refueling in case of fire.

    
    Take care not to spill gasoline. If gasoline
    spills, wipe it up immediately with
    dry rags. Always properly dispose of
    gasoline-soaked rags.

    
    Avoid overfilling the fuel tank. Stop filling
    when the fuel level reaches approximately
    50 mm (2 in) from the top of the
    fuel tank. Fuel expands as it warms up
    and could overflow if the fuel tank has
    been overfilled. If temporarily leaving
    the watercraft with a full fuel tank, do not
    leave it in direct sunlight. Leave it in a
    well-ventilated area with the watercraft
    in a horizontal position.

    
    Tighten the fuel tank filler cap securely
    after refueling.

    
    If you should swallow some gasoline, inhale
    a lot of gasoline vapor, or get gasoline
    in your eyes, get immediate medical
    attention.

    
    If any gasoline spills on your skin or
    clothing, immediately wash the affected
    area with soap and water and change
    your clothes.

    Top off the fuel tank with fresh gasoline and
    add one ounce of Yamaha Fuel Stabilizer and
    Conditioner per each gallon of fuel.
    EJU33680
    Battery
    If the watercraft will not be used for more than
    a month, remove the battery from the watercraft
    and store it in a cool, dry place.
    (1) Disconnect the negative (
    ) battery lead
    first, then the positive (+) battery lead and
    breather hose, and then remove the battery
    from the watercraft.
    (2) Clean the battery casing using fresh water.
    (3) If the battery terminals are dirty or corroded,
    clean them with a wire brush.
    (4) Fully charge the battery.
    (5) Apply Yamaha Marine Grease or
    Yamaha Grease A to the battery terminals,
    and then store the battery in a cool,
    dry place.
    (6) Check the battery at least once every 2
    months and fully charge it if necessary.

    CAUTION:
    ECJ00100
    Always keep the battery charged. Storing
    a discharged battery can cause permanent
    battery damage.
    To check the condition of the battery, check
    the specific gravity of the electrolyte or measure
    the voltage at both battery terminals.
    Charge the battery if the voltage is less than
    12 volts.
    It is recommended to have a Yamaha dealer
    check the specific gravity and charge the battery.
    If you maintain the battery yourself, be
    sure to read and follow the instructions provided
    with the battery tester and charger you
    use.
    EJU33740
    Cleaning the watercraft
    Clean the watercraft before storing it for a long
    period.
    (1) Wash down the hull, handlebars, and jet
    unit with fresh water.
    Specific gravity (for reference):
    1.28 at 20
    °C (68 °F)

    Maintenance and care
    71
    (2) Rinse the engine and bilge area with
    fresh water. Drain all of the water and
    wipe up any remaining moisture with
    clean, dry rags.
    CAUTION:
    ECJ00110
    Do not use high-pressure water when rinsing
    the engine and bilge area as severe engine
    damage could result.
    (3) Spray the engine
    s exterior with a rust inhibitor
    and lubricant such as Yamaha Silicone
    Protectant and Lubricant.
    (4) Wax the hull with a non-abrasive wax
    such as Yamaha Silicone Wax.
    (5) Wipe all vinyl and rubber components,
    such as the seat and engine compartment
    seals, with a vinyl protectant such
    as Yamaha Protectant.

    EJU33751
    Maintenance and adjustments
    Periodic inspection, adjustment, and lubrication
    will keep your watercraft in the safest and
    most efficient condition possible. Safety is an
    obligation of the watercraft owner. Proper
    maintenance must be carried out to keep the
    exhaust emission and sound levels within the
    regulated limits. The most important points of
    watercraft inspection, adjustment, and lubrication
    are explained on the following pages.
    See a Yamaha dealer for genuine Yamaha replacement
    parts and optional accessories designed
    for your watercraft.
    Remember, failures that are the result of the
    installation of parts or accessories which are
    not qualitatively equivalent to genuine
    Yamaha parts are not covered by the limited
