    Did I protect my GTX SC from freezing okay?

    I searched but could not get a conclusive answer...

    I used a blige pump and ran about 2 gallons of -50 RV antifreeze into the rear flush port while I was running the engine. Some came shooting out of the jet ski's pump as expected. Probably ran it for no more than 45 seconds.

    I plan to get winterized by a "pro" (cough), but will what I have done prevent me from freezing anything for the time being?

    This is on a 2004 GTX SC, which I believe means it is non intercooled.

    Thanks much!

    that was perfect. you dont need to do anything more wit hthe antifreeze.
    just put some stabilizer in teh gas, top off the tank to mix it, run the ski for 1 -2 minutes to pump stabilized fuel thru the system.
    then pull the fuel rail, and spray some fogging oil into the injector ports.
    crank engine in drown mode.
    do a board search this is all REALLY easy.
    if you were mechanical enough to flush the cooling sytem with antifreeze then you can also do the rest and save yourself some $

    I did my 06' RXP the same way, used a bilge pump and pumped it through the rear flush port till it came out the back of the pump. Hope this is right for the intercooled models as well.

    Thanks for the comments. Yea, I wouldn't mind going the DIY route, but I still have another year of warranty remaining. Not sure how that flys if I have an issue. Since I'll be parking the ski outside in the rediculously cold WI winters, I want to make sure that I'm protected against feezing, or at least not on the hook for repairs.

    No worry at all, this is the exact same thing i did with my 2005 C180 SCIC, i ran it until white smoke came evident to exhaust output, which used about 3/4 of a gallon, then shut the engine off...if enough prestone came out at the rear, then you are covered....there is everywhere needed inside.
