    1998 gtx oil lines

    I have a 1998 seadoo gtx, new to me. So looking down at the motor, I can see two oil lines goin to the cylinders, both appear to have air bubbles, when the ski starts you can see the oil slowly move closer to the cylinders. The ski have ran great and have had no issues, just happened to notice this. Is this normal or should I do something?

    Probably old oil lines and are leaking a little allowing air in. Replace the lines and prime them before starting ski.

    I use a plastic syringe from dollar store to prime the line full of oil before installing.

    Use polyurethane hose and secure with .025" stainless steel safety wire. Two wraps around the hose, then twist the ends together securely. Cut off at about 1/2", then bend the wire end over so you don't stab yourself on it.
