Off season maintenance question?
Did a top end re-build on my 03 xlt 1200 last off season and had her ready for this season. New top end ran outstanding d-plate done wave eaters, couplers...I put about 23 hrs on new top end this summer had awesome pick up no hesitation and 60 mph on speedometer every time out including today which could be last time for season...so my question is should I look for anything or any maintenance I should do to it over the winter...again she ran perfect so maybe if it ain't broke don't fix it???
Thanks for thoughts in advance!

No just make sure you stabilize the fuel so you have no issues next season. Make sure you run the ski long enough that the gas in the carburetors will be treated.

After you do that, I actually drain the rest of the gas out of the tank and throw it in my truck. Start fresh in the spring. Most of the skies in the shop in the spring are with blown engines using old gas. Sta-bil or not I like to run new and be safe!
