When most people think about water based adventure their first thought is often to fishing or water skiing. However, when it comes to true water based adventures, you can't go past a jet-ski. While they may be a slight learning curve involved when it comes to getting on one, once you've mastered it the thrill they can provide is unmatched.

Keeping Your Jet-Ski on the Water for Longer With the Benefits of a Synthetic Oil Change Near Ammon

If you've bought a jet-ski and you're looking for general tips on how to take the best care of it, or perhaps you're considering buying one and wondering about the level of upkeep owning one would bring, keep reading. With experience providing advice and marine based products to water-seeking adventurers just like yourself, Amsoil Dealer - TenEyck Distributing has some basic information below on how to keep a jet-ski in good shape and the products you need to get the best performance out of it.

Get to Know Your Craft

It doesn't matter if you've ridden a jet-ski before or this will be your first time getting close to one, they are all slightly different and can bring with them unique requirements for not only maintenance but operation. Take the time to read your manual and be sure you know how to use your model correctly and safely.

Check Your Fluid Levels

Just like your car of your motorbike, there are a number of fluids running through the engine of a jet-ski that keeps it on the water and keeps it moving. Before you even load it onto your trailer (more on this later), check the levels and ensure they're adequate. You would be surprised by how many riders get to the water only to find their levels are low and they left their spare bottles in the garage. If your jet-ski trailer has a small storage space or room for one, put a bottle of marine oil in there so that you've always got it on hand. While there are many choices available, it's best to stick with a synthetic oil. Conventional engine oils can break down under the levels of pressure inside a jet-ski engine which can lower the performance of your ride. If you are unsure about which marine oil to use, speak with Amsoil Dealer - TenEyck Distributing at (208) 589-4660 and tell us the details of your jet-ski. With a large range of marine oils available to choose from, Amsoil Dealer - TenEyck Distributing can get the right product to keep your jet-ski in good working order and protect its engine from the damage oil breakdown can bring.

Load It Correctly

As we briefly mentioned above, when you're loading your jet-ski onto your trailer or tray always be sure to use the right equipment. Instead of you and your friends simply lifting it up and loading it on, always use a purpose designed loading crane to get it into place. If you don't load it correctly and it falls, it could be more than just cosmetic damage that it suffers.

Keep It Clean and Free of Debris

When you have arrived home after each ride, take the time to give your jet-ski a thorough clean. Sitting in salt or dirty water during your trip doesn't do the exterior or interior any good, and if it's left to rust or operate with debris caught inside any propulsion exhausts, your new toy and expensive investment in adventure will deteriorate much quicker than you expect. Once you've washed it down and removed any debris, always dry it thoroughly to prevent any rust from building up.


If you only use your jet-ski seasonally then it's likely it sits in a garage for a large amount of time during the year. If you're storing it away for the off-season, consider draining it of its fuel or adding a stabilizer to prevent internal corrosion while it sits.

Finding the Right Synthetic Oil Change Products Near Me

Getting your hands on the right products to keep your jet-ski in good working order doesn't require a lot of research, is just requires a phone call. Give Amsoil Dealer - TenEyck Distributing a call at (208) 589-4660 and ask about the range of AMSOIL Marine oil and the benefits they can provide. While you're at it, let us know the make and model of the car or truck that you will be using to get your jet-ski to the water and we can find the right synthetic oil product to keep it in good working order too. With the more complex nature of your car or truck's engine, the benefits of a synthetic oil change near Ammon for your car and truck are much greater, including a reduction in your ongoing maintenance costs.
