Yamaha Waveunner Parts FAQ
Q: Why do Yamaha WaveRunners shoot water?
The water that WaveRunners and jet skis shoot is called a “rooster tail.” The purpose of this stream of water is solely for enhanced visibility while out on the water. When you’re riding in the waves, it can be difficult for others to spot you. The water spout is more easily detectable.
Q: How many hours will a Yamaha WaveRunner last?
On average, a WaveRunner gets about 30 hours of ride time a year with the typical rider. So if your jet ski is 3 years old, it likely has about 90 hours. They can last upwards of 300 hours when properly taken care of over the years. After 300, it will be time to begin considering an upgrade.
Q: How do you break in a Yamaha WaveRunner?
To get the most out of your new WaveRunner, it must be broken in properly. This process happens over a 10-hour period, which does not have to be done all at once. For the first hour, run the WaveRunner’s motor at varying speeds up to 2000 rpm. Allow the jet ski to completely cool down. For the second hour, accelerate enough to put the boat on plane, then slightly back off the throttle without leaving the plane. For the remaining eight hours, run it at all speeds without running at Wide Open Throttle for more than 5 minutes at a time. Consult your owner’s manual for more information, which may offer different instruction than the above. Find yours online here.
Q: Can you run a Yamaha WaveRunner out of water?
Yes. When the WaveRunner is properly trailered, you can run it in order to rid it of salt water if you typically ride in the ocean. Otherwise, it is not recommended you run it out of water longer than 10 seconds to avoid engine damage.
