    Winterizing Your Gp1200r

    Is their any easy way to winterize the GP1200r. I know to run antifreeze through it along with gas additive and i like to fog out the pistons but how do you fog out the carbs?

    Tips, Tricks, or the right way to do it?

    Thanks.

    Exclamation info

    you put the oil stabil and gas stabil in right? where are you putting in the antifreeze? and what kind are you using? when you put in the gas stabil that should take car of the carb since your running the engine for 5 - 7 min after putting that in.

    Basically... i run the fuel additive through the motor and then the antifreeze through the fresh water rinse connection and flush out the ski a few times until i see the antifreeze come out all the holes. After that i blow some marbol mystery oil down the spark plug holes and then im done. I would like to get some fogger in the carbs but their to hard to get to. ive done it this way for 2 years now and never had any problems. Think this is ok? Any tricks or tips to run t he antifreeze through easier... i have to like use a pump and push it through with some pressure or it doesnt work.

    thanks, doug.

    I dump 3 gallons of rv/marine anitfreeze into a bucket. then use an electric pump to connect to flush fitting to run it through.Same pressure as a hose.It comes out all the pissers.

    i use the same pump, puts out as much as a house pump its pretty good. i also run additive through it, put engine store in the cylinders, and then spray it over with white lithium grease and get all the water out.

    As for Antifreeze I've used a few methods that have worked for me in the past.
    -I've put antifreeze in a bucket with an old bilge pump and pumped it through the flush fitting.
    -I've used a funnel and a long garden hose and dumped a gallon in the hose through the funnel (holding both ends of the hose up). Then hooked up one end to the ski and used my air compressor on the other (with the pressure turned down to about 25psi) and pumped through what I had put in the hose... A 25ft garden hose holds right at 1 gallon of antifreeze.

    One of my friends uses a drill type pump from home depot and I know another guy who has a converted bug sprayer..

    Any/all of these work fine..
