Also, make sure that the reverse gate goes up to its stopper position when shift lever is pushed down. This changes the trim angle of the watercraft. So visit your authorized Yamaha dealer to get all the facts. Shutting off the engine can cause you to hit an obsta- cle you are attempting to avoid. Install the air filter element and air filter case cover. Connect the positive + jumper cable 1 to the positive + terminals of both bat- teries. Bow down puts more of the bow in the water.
Put the watercraft on land in a horizontal position. Con- sult your Yamaha dealer about any con- trol function fully understand. Spray a rust inhibitor, such as Yamaha Silicone Protectant and Lubricant, on metallic parts to minimize corrosion. It is recommended to have a Yamaha dealer charge the battery. If this happens during operation, beach the watercraft. Do not apply throttle until each passen- ger is seated with his or her feet on the floor of the footwell and is holding on to the person in front of him or her.
Make sure that the reverse gate goes down to its stopper position when the shift lever is pulled up. Water sucked in through the intake grate is pressurized by the impeller in the jet pump. You must decide whether to wear a hel- met while you ride for recreation. Release the throttle lever about 100 m 330 ft before you reach the intended beaching area. If the reverse gate does not reach the cor- rect positions, have a Yamaha dealer ser- vice it.
Reverse can only be used to slow down or stop during low speed maneuver- ing, such as when docking. Failure to understand how controls work could cause an accident or prevent you from avoiding an accident. Wash down the hull, handlebars, and jet unit with fresh water. Check the battery at least every 2 months and fully charge it if necessary. To close the hood, push the hood down to lock it in place. Bow down puts more of the bow in the water. If you charge the battery yourself, carefully read the battery charger instructions before charging and fol- low the points below.
If the intake is clogged, cavitation could occur, reducing jet thrust, and possibly damaging the jet pump. To open the glove compartment, slide the latch 1 toward you, and then lift up the lid. If the mechanism does not work properly, have a Yamaha dealer service it. As the pressurized water is expelled from the pump through the jet thrust nozzle, it creates thrust to move and steer the watercraft. Attach the clip 1 to the engine shut-off switch 2.
Gasohol containing methanol is not rec- ommended by Yamaha because it can cause fuel system damage or engine perfor- mance problems. The buzzer will sound twice. Read further into some of the technical specifications as well as other interesting information on the different types of 2003 waverunner you can expect to find available for purchase. Most of the 2003 waverunners weigh in at about 800 pounds or under. Operate defensively at safe speeds and keep a safe distance away from people, objects, and other watercraft.
. Have a Yamaha dealer replace the oil filter if necessary. Wipe any dirt from the threads of the spark plug. If the reverse gate does not reach the cor- rect positions, have a Yamaha dealer ser- vice it. Do not start the engine in less than 60 cm 2 ft of water. Continuing to operate at higher speeds could result in severe engine damage. See below for a description of your particu- lar label.
If you carry objects that must be kept dry, such as the manuals, put them in a waterproof bag. The water separator retains any water entering through the fuel tank breather hose if the watercraft is capsized. A fire extinguisher is not standard equip- ment with this watercraft. Once the engine is ing if it has the seating capacity to carry the idling, shift to reverse and gradually operator, a rearward-facing spotter, and the increase engine speed. Allow the engine compartment to remain open for a few minutes to allow any fuel vapors to escape. Grease quantity: Initial 10 hours or 1 month: 33. Be alert to the possi- bility of adverse weather.
When the engine is running, cooling water is circulated in the engine, and then it is discharged from the pilot outlets. Be alert for con- ditions that limit your visibility or block your vision of others. Both of you should alter course to could lead to a collision unless the Steering avoid an accident. Spark plug tightening torque: 12. Always consult local boat- latory or advisory information.
Fill the tank with straight gasoline, and then proceed with normal operation. It is stopped by water resistance when throttle lever released. From full speed, the watercraft comes to a complete stop in approximately 100 m 330 ft after the throttle is released and the engine is stopped, although this dis- tance will vary depending on many factors, including gross weight, water surface condi-. Also, make sure that the reverse gate goes up to its stopper position when shift lever is pushed down. Allow the engine compartment to air dry completely before installing the seat.
