    Waverunner hose adapter

    I have a "97 GP 1200. Owners manual says it's OK to run engine with garden hose attachment. I had a mechanic tell me if I ran it more than 15 or 20 seconds, water would back flush into the engine. Anyone have a problem using the flushing attachment.

    Re: Waverunner hose adapter

    You can run the engine with the flush attachement longer than 15-20 seconds. Most run it for 10 minutes or so after a ride to flush the engine. Then I run it for 15 seconds with the hose off. I feather the throttle during the 15 second to get any excess water out of engine.

    I think ( I hope) there was a misunderstanding with the mechanic. He may have meant 15 seconds without water hose on.

    Always start the engine first. Then immediately turn on hose. Let engine flush for 10 minutes or so.

    Then turn off hose, then shout down engine after 15 seconds of feathering throttle.

    Re: Waverunner hose adapter

    The 97 GP uses the quick disconnect plug, under the small seat. (Remove the small seat and its on the port side right next to the bigger seats latch) As long as you start the ski first, THEN turn on the water, you can run it for as long as you like. Be sure to turn OFF the water before stopping the engine. Water can only backfill into the engine if you have the hose on without the engine running. Also running the engine for more than 10 or 15 seconds without water can cause damage.

    HA didn't type fast enough... someone beat me. lol
