    Winterizing in Florida?

    Yes, we do get freezing temps in central Florida, albeit only a for a few hours for a few days a year.

    Usually 3-4 hours of 30-ish temps a few days out of the year.

    I store my PWC outside with a cover.

    I also ride at least once a month, year round.

    Should I be concerned about the occasional freezing temps?

    I do have a garage, but the wife's car is in there....if needed, I could swap them during the cold spells. Should I bother?

    not for a GTI 130. You already have antifreeze in the engine and don't have an IC. Put good gas in it and run her once a month

    The exhaust manifold, waterbox, mid-pipe/j-pipe, however unlikely, can all freeze and crack.

    This IS true. There shouldn't be enough water in them to do this though. 4 years with my ski in Pinellas with external ICs and 0 issues. I ride year round.
