Servicing your PWC is an important part of being a jet ski owner, just as it is an important part of being an owner of any engine, be it marine or automobile. However, just as often as the question of what should be covered in your ski maintenance comes up, is the question of how often you should be servicing it. Thankfully, it’s a pretty easy question to answer.
Firstly, the engine on your ski should be flushed after every ride, regardless of if you went into the salt water or fresh water. Flushing is very important for the general upkeep of your personal watercraft because it removes all sorts of unwanted hangers on like marine life, algae, sand, salt, weeds and other debris. It also prevents damage and corrosion, which will in turn make your cruiser last longer for more fun times, plus a better resale value. When you’re ready to trade up to the latest PWC.
Your more complex servicing and repairs should always be completed by an Authorised Service Centre, such as the Yamaha Service Centre team at Gold Coast Waverunners. A full ski service should be completed either every 12 months, or after a 50-hour block of use on your clock, whichever comes first. So basically, if you’re out regularly and loving the open water, and the hours of cruising you get with your watercraft, you should be watching those hours carefully so as to ensure you’re servicing your craft regularly and on time. That way you’ll get more longevity out of your ski and make more memories because of it.
