    Re: how do I winterize 97 gti sea doo

    Is it kept in warm storage or will it freeze? You should also add fuel stabilizer and top off the tank and run it long enough to get treated fuel into carbs. Then fog and then remove plugs and spray fogging oil into plug holes the replace them and cream it over a few times to distribute oil.

    Then do all the annual maintenance items listed in the service manual such as changing jet pump oil and cleaning RAVE valves. If by chance you have a water leak into pump shaft housing you don't want it rusting up the bearings all winter long. Finally remove battery and keep it charged with a trickle battery tender protected from freezing. Service manual will have a more complete winterization procedure. If you don't have one, download it from sticky at top of forum or seadoomanuals.net

    Try searching the forum. I know of at least three or four threads on winterizing already out there...

    One other thing if the ski will freeze, follow the procedure for pouring antifreeze in the cooling system. Some water may remain in cooling jacket and exhaust system. I know it's discussed in the user guide.
