    Question How do you winterize a Gp1200r?

    Hi,

    I've read many things saying how to winterize a jet ski.. but don't know if it's for the gp1200r...

    Can you guys give me like a step by step on how to winterize my 2000 Gp1200r..

    I have a jet ski lift at the lake.. and they usually winterize the ski when they winterize the boat, so I don't know what to do...

    Thanks guys!!!

    Winterize? I usually change Jets for the cooler denser air. Somtimes it requires a pitch up on the impeller too. Gotta Love living in SoCal

    I summerize the 4wheelers and dirtbike by adding racefuel towards the end of riding season. The shelf life is about 2yrs on VP or Sunoco. However I don't know the specific gravity and that should be researched before you run it hard. 5 gallons a year isn't to bad. Never been a fan of some mystery additive that prolongs the life of fuel and supposedly keeps octane up. Sounds like a good way to deto a piston at the begining of summer.

    If your not going to start the boat for 3 weeks or more I would suggest fogging it too.
