    2014 FZS winterizing mistake

    Hello Everyone,

    I made the mistake of fogging the supercharger on my 2014 SVHO. This is the first and only time I have tried it.
    I have read that fogging oil will make its way to the intercooler and could gum up the fins.
    What do I need to look out for when taking the ski back out in the spring?
    Will there be any noticeable differences in power?
    Do I need to take apart the intercooler and clean it after only one fogging?

    I now know that I should have researched more on this site before I winterized.
    Thanks for any feedback guys.

    I would bet it will eventually clean out. That being said if tuned and stuff oil decreases octane and can lean one if on the edge.

    if your worries pulling the blower (6 easy to get to bolts)

    and then the intercooler. And soak intercooler in dawn missed water and rinse a few times and let dry out. Reinstall.

    If you fogged the supercharger just the one time. You will be fine. No need to start removing stuff. From the factory these skis are feed crankcase oil through the intake. Which is much worse than you spraying alittle fog in there
