Maintenance is the process of keeping a jet-ski in good condition. Routine upkeep and maintenance intervals help prolong the life of your jet-propelled vehicle. This maintenance schedule represents the minimum maintenance intervals recommended from the factory. If you intend to keep your watercraft in peak condition, you may want to perform some of these routine services even more often. Frequent maintenance helps improve performance, enhances efficiency and preserves resale value of your Yamaha WaveRunner. If you operate your personal watercraft in harsh conditions, idle or run at low speeds for extended periods, shorter maintenance intervals are recommended.
