My wife and I just picked up a pair of used Kawasaki 1100 ZXI's yesterday. They are in very good condition for being 2001's but the previous owner did not have the manuals. We're going to order one from Kawasaki but we did take the skis out yesterday and I'm curious about flushing the engines.

Is this something that has to be done every ride? If so, how?

Very glad that I found PWC Forum. I'm sure that I'll be in this sub-forum quite a bit. Thanks in advance guys!

salt or fresh water?

I'm new but I believe you must flush if you are riding in salt water. Some people don't always flush in fresh water. I don't know if thats good or bad.

I've benn riding since 91. Always fresh water and never flush. I have never had a problem. If you are concerned though go to the local dealer and buy one. it can easily be swapped between the two machines. I have one on my ski but only use it when running it in the driveway. Be sure to start the motor before turning on the hose or you could fill the motor with water. The result of starting it, or trying to, once filled with water is costly. The motor will hydraulic and usually results in a bent connecting rod.
