How long do you have to break in a new jet ski?
The first 5 hours of your new Seadoo Watercraft is the most critical. All the other hours are not as important as those first 5 hours. Your break in period is within the first 5 hours. The first service or oil change is 50 hours or 1 year, whichever one comes first.

How long does it take to break in a Seadoo?

Can a jet ski go in reverse?
Jet skis do have reverse, as well as neutral and brakes. A ‘reverse gear’ is achieved by swiveling the jet of water that normally pushes the watercraft forward by 180 degrees to apply a braking force which will eventually move the jet ski backward.
What kind of fuel do jet skis use?
Jet skis primarily use regular unleaded gasoline and premium gasoline. This is largely dependent on the specific model and manufacturer of the jet ski. If you are hoping to save money on gasoline, look for a jet ski that will take regular unleaded fuel.
