    OK how do you winterize

    Ok dumb question but I am from CA. now here in TN where winters get down to 14 degrese. I never even knew there was a temp that could. First year here ruined my pressure washers and water pumps and a number of other gas tools.
    How would I winterize the skis? 2006 sea doo gti and a 200 yama gp760. And I already asked and my wife will not let me bring them in the house. I say they would make nice chairs but no go. Thanks Keith

    -Pour some Seafoam or Stabil in the gas tank
    - Start up engine and punch the throttle up to about 6k quickly (Burp the throttle) DO this several times until water stops coming out the pump.
    -Change oil and filter
    - Pull top hose of intercooler and pour some RV antifreeze in the intercooler
    - Reconnect hose
    - Pull plugs and spray fogging oil in the cylinders and replace plugs with old beater plugs for the winter


    - Pull throttle body hose and spray inside TB with fogging oil
    - GEt yourself some steel wool and plug up where exhaust leaves the boat (Keeps the critters out)
    - Pull battery and put inside your house with a battery tender on it

    - Go inside and cry yourself to sleep cause you wont be riding for a few months at least!

    I thought that RV/Marine antifreeze is biodegradable. I could be wrong on that part. To get the antifreeze out you just run the ski on a hose or take down to the lake and ride.

    I believe if you look in the "How-to" section some one has a write up on this topic.
