    Can 04 GTX SC be stored at freezing temps?

    Okay, I plan to winterize when I am done riding, but I am worried the temps will drop below freezing on a occasional night b4 I winterize. It's a 04 GTX SC with closed loop cooling. Will this cause a problem like in a boat? I can't find an answer anywhere, even in the manual.

    Thanks ahead.

    first thing you do.... put fuel stabilizer in the gas tank....

    now run the ski on the flush for a bit to both get it hot for an oil change and to circulate some of that stabilizer thru the fuel

    changing the oil is up to you... recommended, not mandatory, depends when your last oil service was...

    start the ski and rev it up a little bit to blow water out of the exhaust system, and then shut it down for the last time.... get a bucket and pour like half a gallon, or even a full gallon is fine into the bucket... put a bilge pump in the bucket and hook it up to the flush port in the back of the ski and pump it in (with the ski off)

    DONE

    other option is if you dont have means to pump it into the ski, you can take the hose off the top of the j-pipe... the highest point of the exhaust's j-pipe, take that hose off and get a funnel and funnel about half a gallon of antifreeze into the pipe.

    What about an 07 RXT with an intercooler, how do you get antifreeze into there?
    And shouldn't you fog the engine?

    Hey thanks for the winterization information, but before I winterize, is it okay to let the ski sit in freezing temps? It may drop down to those temps b4 I am done riding for the season. Thanks.

    Don't let it freeze with water in it...
