Mako Operator's Guide

Read and follow Mako Operator’s Guide thoroughly before first use. The guide contains important operational and safety information. Disregarding these instructions could result in a jetboard malfunction and rendering it unsafe to operate which could lead to serious injury, and a warranty claim may be denied if, among other things, the owner caused the problem through improper use.

The Right Fuel Mix

THE RIGHT FUEL When choosing a petrol to use, don’t go with the cheap stuff. Always use a high quality unleaded petrol with a RON octane rating of 92, a MON octane rating of 87 or a AKI (RON+MON)/2 octane rating of 91, or higher. Fuel with a lower octane rating may increase engine temperatures, resulting in the risk of piston seizure and damage to the engine.
RECOMMENDED OIL We also recommend that you use a high-quality fully synthetic 2-stroke oil, which is designed to deliver the highest levels of engine protection. Ensure the oil you choose meets the standards NMMA TC-W3, API TC, ISO-L-EGD or JASO FD/FC.
FUEL MIXING Knowing the proper way to mix your fuel is the first step in keeping your jetboard running strong and long. Your Mako runs on a 50:1 petrol and engine oil mixture.

So what does 50:1 mean? It’s simply 50 parts of fresh, unleaded petrol with 1 part of fully synthetic 2-stroke oil.

RATIO 2% Oil or 50:1
ML PER LITRE 20 Millilitres
ML PER 5 LITRES 100 Millilitres
FL.OZ. PER US GALLON 2.56 Fluid Ounces
ML PER US GALLON 75.72 Millilitres
