Anybody here Own jet-skis?

Just bought a 1997 Yamaha waverunner gp760 and I think I have the process down on flushing it but, I would love some other opinions. Not new to riding them but new to owning one.

I cant find the right connection to hook up to the port that comes from the factory that is under my rear seat to hook the garden hose up to. It's just a little bit smaller then a garden hose hook up. I just went to lowes and talked with a guy who was determined it was that size and I kept telling him it was smaller. I even brought the little cap with me to match everything up. Well I bought a bunch of fittings and shut off valves and nothing fits

yes, it will be something you have to get from a dealer. they should have one in stock though, its a pretty common part to need.

just make sure to try and drain as much water out of the system when you are done. for a buddy's 98 yamaha, we would lift the tongue of the trailer up as high as we could and crank the motor a couple times. gota be careful doing it though. on my 05, it was partially liquid cooled, so i could get away with running it a little to push the water out and not worry about anythng

Yeah we always drain ours and even crank it after pulling out of the water, we let it runs about 10 seconds

I know this is an old post but stumbled on it.

Just be sure whenever you have the garden hose attached that the motor is running or you will cause big problems.

Start the unit first. Then turn on the water. Then turn off the water. Let run for a short moment and then turn off the machine.
