    Should i winterize my ski or not???

    Hi Guys,

    Im from New Zealand and it is coming into the winter season unfortunately my question is, it does not get down to freezing temps here and I will probably plan on taking my ski out maybe once every 2 and a half or so months to give it a run out..will this be doing any corrosion letting it sit for this long??

    Any input is appreciated thanks guys

    Hi there
    I'm from NZ Auckland & try to ride every couple of weeks down the Waikato River at Tuakau bridge. What ski have you got?.
    I have a VXR 2013 Yamaha. My Jetski guy tells me just keep your battery charged up & every week just start it up for 40 seconds no water just to move the Oil around .
    hope this helps .

    Run antifreeze and fog. Why risk it?

    Use fuel stabilizer and fog the engine. Antifreeze is totally unnecessary. I would still change the oil and filter too.
