    Waking the beast

    Ok so I winterised ski back in November now thinking of waking her up from her slumber.....

    winterising i added fuel stabiliser and fogged engine through air intake intake hose and spark plug holes took battery off.

    battery is on charge and topped up with deionised water.

    what do I need to do so I can hit the water when the sun comes out? Do I just put battery back on and take ski out? Planning an oil change at some point soon but need to get oil and filter and not passing a dealers anytime soon.

    searched for "dewinterised" or "de-winterising" nothing came up

    Sometimes the terms 'summerize or summerizing' are used.

    Preparing for summer, lots of posts, with lots of different words.
