    All this winterizing talk is depressing! Come on next weekend is still in the high 70's. Still another month or so of riding left this season!!! Then 30's and snow to follow....

    Storage
    WARNING

    @
    Always place the fuel cock knob in the
    “OFF” position when storing the watercraft,
    otherwise fuel could leak out into
    the engine or engine compartment,
    which would create a fire hazard.
    @
    Storage for prolonged periods of time,
    such as winter storage, requires preventative
    maintenance to ensure against deterioration.
    It is advisable to have the watercraft
    serviced by a Yamaha dealer prior to storage.
    However, the following procedures can
    be performed by the owner.
    EJU01194
    Flushing the cooling system
    Flushing the cooling system is essential
    to prevent the cooling system from being
    clogged with salt, sand, or dirt.
    WARNING
    @


    Stay away from stern when engine is running
    on land. Hot water and steam spurting
    from exhaust outlet into the air can
    cause serious burns.
    @
    CAUTION:
    @


    Do not supply water to the cooling
    water passages when the engine is not
    running. The water could flow back
    through the muffler into the crankcase
    causing severe engine damage.


    Do not run the engine for more
    15 seconds without supplying water,
    otherwise the engine may overheat.


    Do not run engine over 4,000 r/min on
    land. The catalytic converter could
    sustain serious damage.
    @
    4-2
    E
    1. Put the watercraft on land in a horizontal
    position.
    2. Open the flushing hose connector
    cap 1, and then insert the garden hose
    adapter 2 into the flushing hose connector
    3


    and turn it until it is securely
    connected.
    3. Connect the garden hose adapter to a
    water tap using a hose.
    4. Start the engine, and then immediately
    turn the water supply on until water flows
    out continually from the cooling water
    pilot outlet.
    5. Run the engine at idling speed for about
    3 minutes watching the engine condition.
    If the engine stops while flushing, turn
    the water supply off immediately and
    repeat the above steps.
    6. Turn the water supply off, and then force
    the remaining water out from the cooling
    passages by running the engine at
    4,000 r/min or less within 10 to 15 seconds.
    7. Stop the engine.
    8. Remove the garden hose adapter and
    secure the cap.

    Lubrication
    WARNING
    @


    Do not spray flammable rust inhibitor
    products on engine surfaces while the
    engine is hot. The sprayed substance or
    propellants could catch fire.
    @
    1. Remove the spark plugs and pour
    approximately one tablespoon of oil into
    each cylinder.
    2. Grease the spark plug threads and reinstall
    the spark plugs.
    3. Crank the engine within 3 seconds using
    the start switch.
    4. Lubricate all cables such as the throttle,
    choke, and steering cables.
    NOTE:
    @


    Use a Yamaha Power Cable Luber and
    Yamaha Lube-Zall to pressure lubricate the
    cables and purge out any moisture between
    the inner and outer cables.
    @
    5. Lubricate the areas of the watercraft
    specified under Lubrication points on
    pages 4-16 to 4-18.

    Fuel system
    Draining the fuel system prevents buildup
    of varnishes and other harmful deposits that
    result when gasoline sits for a prolonged
    period of time.
    WARNING
    @


    Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive.
    A fire or explosion can cause severe injury
    or death. Shut the engine off. Drain in wellventilated
    areas away from flames or
    sparks. Do not smoke. Avoid spilling gasoline.
    Wipe up spilled gasoline immediately.
    @
    To drain the fuel system:
    1. Place the fuel cock knob in the “OFF”
    position.
    2. Drain the fuel tank using a siphon.

    EJU01092
    Battery
    If the watercraft is not used for a month or
    more, disconnect the (–) battery cable first,
    and then the (+) cable and breather pipe,
    and next remove the battery from the craft.
    Clean the battery casing using fresh
    water.
    If the battery terminals are dirty or corroded,
    clean the mating surfaces on the terminals
    for the battery cables using the wiring
    brush or equivalents.
    Recharge the battery, and then store it in
    a cool and dark place.
    Apply the Yamaha marine grease/Yamaha
    grease A to the battery terminals.
    Recharge the battery periodically at least
    2 months because a battery will discharge
    electricity by itself while storing.
    CAUTION:
    @


    The battery may be impossible to use

    again if you store it for a longer time
    without recharging. Recharge the battery
    periodically.
    @
    NOTE:
    @


    The battery condition can be found by
    checking the specific gravity of the electrolyte.
    However, you can also know the battery
    condition roughly by measuring the voltage
    at both battery terminals. Recharge the battery
    if the voltage is 12 volts or less.
    Yamaha recommend checking the specific
    gravity of the electrolyte and charging battery
    by a Yamaha dealer or a battery dealer.
    If you maintain the battery yourself, read
    carefully the instructions for the tool and
    machine before maintenance.
    @
    Specific gravity of electrolyte
    (for reference):
    1.28 at 20 °C (68 °F)

    Cleaning the watercraft
    Clean the watercraft before storing it for a
    long period.
    WARNING
    @


    Do not spray flammable rust inhibitor
    products on engine surfaces while the
    engine is hot. The sprayed substance or
    propellants could catch fire.
    @
    1. Wash down the hull, handlebars, and
    drive unit with fresh water.
    2. Rinse the engine and bilge area with
    fresh water. Drain off all water and wipe
    up remaining moisture with clean, dry
    rags.
    3. Spray the engine’s exterior with Yamaha
    Silicone Protectant and Lubricant.
    4. Wax the hull with a non-abrasive wax
    such as Yamaha Silicone Wax.
    5. Wipe all vinyl and rubber components,
    such as the seat and engine compartment
    seals, with a vinyl protectant such
    as Yamaha Protectant.

    Sounds like they don't recommend using any antifreeze. What do others here think about that?

    The previous owner of mine had antifreeze in it but I'm thinking that's probably not necessary.

    Sounds like you just do your general maintenance on it and park it. Fire it up on shore to get the water out and call it a day.
