    Are you storing it outside in the cold? That depends if you need antifreeze.
    Run the ski on your last outing with Stabil in the tank so it gets all thru the fuel lines and injectors. Then refill the tank and add more Stabil. You can fog thru the injectors- remove the 2 bolts holding the rail on and spray into each hole. I then re-install and go ahead and start it for a sec and shut it down when smoke appears. I remove the rail 1 more time and spray again but this time I don't start the ski, just crank it a few times holding the throttle wide open ( drown mode). Others may do it differently but its works for me. Pull your battery and put it on a battery tender. Spray down metal parts with fluid-film, put the seat back on leaving it not latched and a gap for moisture to escape and put the cover on.
