    The cooling system is self draining. Just start the engine and rev it once or twice to blow the water out of the exhaust.

    Yep. Fill the fuel tank with fuel stabilizer at the appropriate ratio. Fill the oil tank completely full. Take the ski for a run on the lake and bring the engine up to full operating temp with stabilized fuel running through the engine. Pull it up on the trailer and while running the engine spray fogging oil into each carb. Pull the ski out of the water, start and blip the throttle a couple of times and you're done.

    Now, if the ski is a '92 or '93 it's different because of the water hose routing. I'm not certain on what needs to be done there.

    Thanks Guys. I rev the engine a couple of times every time I pull it out of the lake, but I always though some water remained. Thanks for the advice.

    Pretty much the same but I'm not sure where you would spray the fogging oil. One of the DI experts needs to chime in on that one.

    I dont consider myself and expert however on the DI skis just pull the cover off the flame arrester and spray it down the throttle bodies. On my 02 Genesis I there are actually 3 seperate plugs on top of the cover that you can remove and fog it that way however I prefer to pull the cover off to make sure I am getting it down in there in a sufficient amount.

    Yeah, now I got it. I was thinking of the Weber 4-stroke motors and the potential to foul sensors with the oil. The DI motors can just take it down the gullet.
