    You will find different opinions on changing the oil before you put the ski away for the winter or before you start it in the spring...use your own judgement for that one. I always add stabil to the fuel, fog the cylinders, and pull the battery. I rotate a battery tender junior on the batteries of the toys that I winterize.
    Some folks pull the fuel rail and fog through the injector holes as well.

    I looked in my manual tonight and nothing is said about the intercooler etc. in regards to winterizing. Is anything required or not?

    They say to pull both the hoses off the IC and let it drain. Then connect the bottom hose or the "out" hose and pour antifreeze into the "in" port where the water comes in from the lake they also say to pour anti freeze into the exhaust manifold. This is all from the 2005 sea doo shop manual that someone else posted on here. Hope this helps

    Thanks Matthew. I found it after I posted. How do you pour antifreeze in the exhaust manifold?

    I'm planning on holding the hose end higher than the manifold and pouring into it.
    The tech bulliten sayes 7 oz into the IC and 10 oz into the exhaust manifold.

    I'm wondering why you couldn't use an airhose and blow all the water out of the system instead.

    This method puts AF into the IC and exhaust without pulling any hoses.

    Even if you do that there will always be a possiblity thats theres water still in there somewhere might as be safe then sorry and just put anti freeze in there its not hard all of the hoses are out in the open u might have to replace a clamp on the ic hoses though because one of them is a okiter clam or whatever the hell its called well at least on mine it is yours might be different.
