water in water box?
ok so this might sound silly but how important is it to empty waterbox after every ride especially after salt water riding. i know you run clean water thru the jetski after each ride and give a few squirts on the throttle to empty water box but i have noticed that even if i start the ski an hour later, a day later, a week later that fair amount of water still comes out of the exhaust. so really what i'm asking is there a way emptying the water box without having to restart the jetski a million times! am i doing something wrong?

Dont worry it has baffles in the water box and its hard to get it all out in a few squirts of the throttle.
Its aluminium so it wont rust on you.

Just ensure you give the ski some GOOD big revs to remove as much as possible,
I always start my ski 2 or so after riding to get as much as possible out,
AFter having skiies for years I now run my ski after flushing for a far bit of time, not enough to damage but enough time to get the wet areas as hot and dry as possible, Some have said that the rust forming the back of exhaust valves cause them to break after time some times I shut it down just as the temp buzzer comes on, but still giving the ski so blips on the throttle.....But this is just MY method...
JUst DONT leave heaps of eater in the box as condensation rises up towards open vales, spark plugs etc.......

re-run it every 2 days for the first week after a salt water ride....

ok so does it matter at what angle the ski is on the trailer when flushing ski with clean water (level, 30, 45, 60 degrees......)? will this effect how much water comes out of the exhaust?
