PLEASE HELP! Winterizing 2008 FX SHO Cruiser.
Well it seems the temp may drop below freezing here in Michigan tomorrow night. I was wondering if anyone here knows how to winterize the 2008 Yamaha FX SHO Cruiser?
I have never winterized anything like this befoe and I am really worried there may still be water inside the engine.

No one knows how to winterize a FX SHO Cruiser huh?
Yet everyone seems to know the speedo is not accurate.
Thanks a lot guys!

I cant seem to find out where the Antifreeze goes!?
I found this thread that says that Yamaha Ski's do not need to be winterized
But that can not be right.
Please help! It going to get into the freezing temps tonight. I may just pull the ski in the garage just to be safe, but I really need to hear from someone in the know.

This has been discussed quite a bit and even recently.
The best thing to do is to go by your owners manual. If you are not comfortable with that, have a dealer winterize the ski like someone else said.
In a nutshell, I do not use any anti-freeze. I start the motor out of the water (no hose attached) and do some half-throttle blips for about 15 seconds and then shut it off for a while and clean on it some (let things cool down). You are blowing the majority of the water out of things while doing these throttle blips. After things cool down a bit, do this again. I do it about four or five times and then I pull the battery for the winter. All water should be out of the hull and the motor should be fogged.
There's a MUCH better program on here that I saw recently. Search for it.
