    It is coming unfortunately need some advice...winterize

    Okay I have looked and some advice but not all. I have an XLT 1200 and I am from Canada it will be in garage but still will be cold. Do you guys recommend getting all gas out or use stabilizer? If use stabilizer should tank be full? So from what I have read fog through plugs?? Something about antifreeze?

    What else do you guys say? I am not getting taken by some shop to do this from what I have read it is not rocket science.

    Thanks everyone!

    Try to get as much gas out as you can and then pour some stablizer in, better to start out with a full tank of fresh gas next season, when fogging the engine, fog cylinder and carb also try to get fogging throught the entire engine, what I do is ill start the motor and rev it alittle while sparying fogging oil in to each carb and then ill cut the engine and open up plug and fog each cylinder and then replace plug, as for antifreeze, it get pour in the engine where the water line runs, your just coating the inside of the engine with antifreeze to replacing the water that is being left inside the engine

    Where are you located?
    I would usually fog it until it stalls. Then put a small amount of oil in the cylinders and roll it over without the plugs in.
    Just stablize your fuel with a good stabilizer. Leave some room for fresh fuel in the spring.

    So I can not get to the carbs with this model so just spray through the plugs into cylinders?
