    Proper Winterization

    Experts on the 08 GP100 R, I winterized my Rxp in 30 minutes, but damn I got stumped on GP1300 R. Read all the posts, even the Riva posts, I could only get a little bit of antifreeze in the engine, even blocking off both pump hoses. Worrying the absolute chit out of me, I don't want to worry that I will get corrosion or any freezing in my water passages. Anyone got any detailed information on this??

    There are about 100 different ways to get antifreeze into the motor. Here is what I do.
    I use a 25ft. garden hose.
    -I take my air compressor and blow all the water out of the garden hose.
    -use a funnel and pour one gallon of RV waterline antifreeze into the hose. When you see the antifreeze start to come out the other end it's full.
    -grab the end to keep the antifreeze from pouring out.
    -hook that end up to the flush hose on the ski.
    -turn the compressor regulator down to about 30psi.
    -start the motor and use the compressor to blow the antifreeze through the motor. It will come out the back and all the pissers.
    -rev the motor up a bit to blow out the excess and shut it down.
    -done

    90+% of the antifreeze you put in a gpr will run out the back....they drain pretty good.

    Thanks, that last statement makes me 'fill' better, no pun intended, 90% drains right out, no way it's going to hold a gallon or two as some have stated.

    winterizing

    let me add to that list that liviing in south N.J. eventhough freezing is not a main concern, being in salt water is.the SALT- AWAY- FLUSH is a must and most important going through a can of yamaha silicone protectant or something similiar and spraying all over your wires , hoses all over even the trailer parts are important for the long term,even spraying everything a few times a year.

    Thanks guys, I got everything down with the fogging, oiling, siliconing, flushing, lubricating, washing and waxing. I bought my GP1300r as a back up ski for my always broke down RXP. It's a new 08 and I don't ride it much, just want to keep it like 'new'.

    Now, do you guys lose most of the coolant anyways???
