You will need what is called "ear muffs"or flush kit to fit over the water intake holes so you can attach the hose, or you will need a large bucket filled with fresh water that the engine leg will fit into and give the engine a run for a few minutes

Have a johnson 200 hp ocean runner.carbs have oil in fuel when i let the motor run for abouy 5 minutes the low oil alarm starts beeping.


Check if your oil feed hose isn't bent or cracked.
It' a sign the oil from your tank couldn't get to the engine fast enough...
If it's a 2 hose oil tank, check if your oil tank cap is wel sealed.

How do i change the radiator fluid?


Most radiators have a drain plug on the bottom tank the engine block also has a drain plug . Remove the radiator cap ,open both drains ,let all the coolant run out, if there is no radiator plug remove the lower hose , remove the heater demister hoses, with the heater control on hot flush out all the coolant from the heater radiator. with a garden hose, till the water runs clean, tighten the radiator plug or re fit the hose,put a garden hose into the radiator and flush out till the water at the block plug runs clean ,refit the heater hoses, refit the block plug, fill the radiator from the hose leave the cap off , If it has a overflow tank clean and flush it. start and run engine for 5 minutes top up radiator if needed . stop engine and drain out all water. most important that all old coolant is drained out, only buy the best coolant you can . If you make up your own use only distilled water. keep some to top up with never mix with another brand. Fill radiator with coolant top up over flow tank, run engine top up coolant as needed, refit radiator cap run for another 10 minutes check for leaks,

Have 2007 yamaha 115 saltwater series, just bought, planned once and then didnt plane, was told its prop bush slipping, can you explain?


The splined hub on the prop is not solid , there is a rubber or plastic sacrificial piece between the outer and inner portions of the hub. Designed to slip if you hit rocks or run over a rope so you dont ruin your drive or motor, just a prop.

also rad flush kit with garden hose addapter (most kit are compatable)
1-drain existing coolant in container for recycling

always better to reveres flussh system with engine off and rad cap removed
drain valve closed hook up garden hose and run hot tap water true system
it will eventually cove out your rad cap (surge tank) until it runs clear
know sut off the garden hose add your cleaning additives installed rad filler cap

open drain valve on radiator and drain out system open water from garden hose
run water until clean water run true shut off garden hose and removed cap off with
cap supplied with kit let system drain completly . repeat cleaning operation until
water runs clear
add 1 jug of concentrated coolant (will mix with ressidual water and finish filling
system with premix used recomended coolant only for your engine your freeze
point of new coolant should be above spec and will be fine
do not used pure concentrated coolant only .your ownners manual spec section will

Prop shaft. You have to remove the bearing housing cap. reference number 70. Remove the bearing housing. reference number 60. The bearing housing will need to be pulled out buy using a puller. If it was in salt water it can be difficult. Pull the prop shaft and clutch dog assembly.

How do you convert a 1997 760 Yamaha Waverunner from fresh water to salt water


There is nothing to convert. After running it in salt water, you need to flush the engine out either on a garden hose or by running it in a fresh water lake or river prior to storing. Salt water is very corrosive and you need to flush your engine just as soon as possible after removing it from salt water. DO NOT let it sit overnight, it will start corroding internally and doing damage.

Yamaha 50 hp motor oil red and green oil sensor lights are on


The engine will self destruct if you continue to run it without the proper oil mixture. Some oil systems have to purged of air if ran dry. Seek professional assisstance.

Can i take my 2008 seadoo to the ocean and how do i flush it?


Yes, you can! and it's awesome! As far as flushing the salt water from the engine, you'll have to purchase an adapter for the water intake hose. This adapter has a connection for a garden hose, so when you connect the fresh water hose, turn the water on, start and run your jetski for @ 4-5 minutes. Then turn the water off and continue to run the engine (throttling up & down) to get the water out. Just like when you come out of a lake. Google for your specific model or go to a dealer. Looks something like this: click here
Hope this helps,
