Do you want to enjoy your investment for the years to come? Listed here are five maintenance tips that can help extend the life of your watercraft.
Break The Engine In Correctly
Although it is quite tempting to push that throttle and tear your way across the lake using all the power that your new PWC can give. This kind of tough, arduous effort, is not what your personal water craft needs during the early phases of its life. As a matter of fact, this kind of high speed use could actually shorten your engine’s lifespan.
Your craft needs a proper break in period. Avoiding extended drag runs and varying speeds are involved when it comes to breaking in the engine. Generally, that means you have to practice patience as well as self-control. Keep off the throttle for now and you will reap the rewards later. The components would wear in and then polish on their own, creating those important tolerances that will surely give you performance benefits down the road.
