    Winterizing a 250 Ultra

    Anybody know where I can find a manual on how to winterize a 250 Ultra Kawi? Or can someone give me detail instructions.
    Thanks,

    1. run fuel as low as possible, add Stabil to whats left.
    2. wash and wax the ski
    3. get it hot and change the oil and filter
    4. start the motor and blow any remaining water out of the ski
    5. start ski and pour 2 gallons of pink RV anti-freeze through flush fitting.
    6. start the motor and blow any remaing anti-freeze out.
    7. pull plugs and spray fogging oil in each cylinder.
    8. turn the motor over a few times to coat everythig with fogging oil.
    9. leave plugs finger tight
    10. pull battery out. keep it charged over the winter.
    11. blow out the bilge lines with compressed air.
    12. prop up the hood and seats to keep air circulating.
    13. stuff some steel wool into the exhaust outlet.
    14. cover.
    15. pump up your trailer bearings with grease

    in the past I would spray down the entire motor with some sort of oil protectant but with the supercharger I wouldn't spray anything in there. Maybe just wipe it down with a moistened rag ??

    Very Good List, i'll add:
    16. Use Fluid Film to lubricate/protect the following:
    steering, throttle, reverse cables
    nozzle and reverse bucket hinge and rod ends
    throttle body, engine and all metal. (be careful around SC, use rag)
    Trailer: Springs, light bulb contacts, light connect, coupler, and locks.

    You can take all the oil out of it; the boat will be full of oil all by itself by the time you are ready to ride next spring (just kiddin' fellas). Previous Posts have said it all. jb

    I'll pm details to stay on topic.

    No gooey mess! Use it sparingly! Burn up your LPS, 6-56, Tri Flow, toss your WD and replace with Fluid Film. Awesome maintenance product. I can't stress it enough. The trick part is how long it lasts VS any other product. For the areas i described - perfect. No solvents so safe on plastic and paint. Ya, sounds like sales, it is in a way, but in this case it's the truth and i feel very strongly about it. I live on the coast and have my entire life. Rust/corrosion and keeping things lubricated well has always been a challenge. I've personally used all products listed and more, Fluid Film tops all.
