    Winterizing

    When winterizine the 215 & 255 motors.......... I add stabil on last ride of the year. Pull plugs and spray fogging oil in each cylinder then replace plugs. Is there anything else I really need to do?

    Thank you.

    completeley fill the gas tank or completeley empty it because then there is little room for condensation and when you bring it back out, the water gets mixed with the fuel and thats a no-no

    Pull the battery and connect it to a battery tender... spray down cables and all metal components with bombardier lube

    Add RV antifreeze to your cooling system and MAKE SURE the IC gets flushed and filled with antifreeze so none of the vains crack due to freezing..

    Should you add stabil even if the tank is full?

    I would still fog it using the little yellow air inlet, and put some fogging oil in the cylenders for storage.
