    It's a Yamaha......they have free draining blocks, as long as you rev the motor to clear the waterbox you will be fine. Just fog if you won't be using it for a few weeks. If you were laying it up then I would drain the waterbox, but if you plan on using it & you have it in a garage then no worries!

    Youll be fine-don't worry about it. Same as other posts have mentioned, just get the water out as per normal, Ice is not a big issue with open cooling systems.
    I do start mine now and again (once a week or so) and run for 10-20 seconds or so with no hose attached, just to keep things moving.
    minus 9c with us 2 nights ago!
