question regarding winter storage.
my seadoo dealer tells me i dont need to add antifreeze to my 1997 SPX 787 motor during the really cold freezing Canadian winter.says it isnt necesary because the motor doesnt collect water anywhere where it will cause damage if it freezes. is this wrong? cause from what ive read i do need to add it/ anyone know whats right for this moter?

The dealer is WRONG! Water collects in the cylinders and will crack the motor.
Remove the water line from the head at it's highest point. Add pure antifreeze untill it runs out the exhaust(about a pint+/-). The antifreeze will dilute in the cylinder.

? Couple of Questions
How much was your jet ski? How much is a gallon of antifreeze? How much is an hour or so of your time worth? and last How much is the peace of mind knowing that your ski will be ready for the spring?
Winterization is a lot more than just adding antifreeze...but that is unquestionably the most important step...I see your dealer wanted some work in the spring when your ski wouldn't start...
Avoid SD dealers and take care of what you can yourself...you will be a lot farther ahead...
