    De-Winterize for FX/SHO Cruiser

    Hey another question for everyone. This will be my first fourstroke and I am picking the ski up this wknd. I am going to go ahead and have them winterize it, since i will not be riding until early spring. When i do pull it out for spring. What is required for the 4-strokes. I know my two-stroke was hook up to hose and verify and take off...Thanks eveyrone..Oh..cant ride this summer due to detachments overseas....Wish i could take it with me...lol

    I was told run one time, or with water running through it and then change plugs.

    Exactly what Bulldog said, next fall change your oil before you store it. I hate dirty oil sitting in my stuff all winter.

    That is correct. At the 10hr srevice change the oil filter too. The manual sayes you dont have to, but do it anyway.
