Really ready to hang it up for the year?

Don't wait for the first reports of freezing weather.

IT WILL BE TOO LATE!

pwc repair shop on Warm Springs Blvd in October
Getting in soon is more important then ever

Why do I need to Winterize?

Simple

4-tec cylinder head
Not winterized
Raw steel will rust unless coated in protective oil
This Seadoo 4-tec engine sat up for two years before the owner
Brought it in for a service.
Needs far more service then anticipated
This can be prevented with a winterize service.

 

An open loop cooling system as used on most Jetskis allows
water to flow into the engine block and then out of the exhaust pipe
It's not possible to get all of the water out of the exhaust system when you store your ski, some of it will remain.
As this water evaporates over the dry winter, where do you think the water goes?
Some of it goes out of the exhaust pipe

Some of it GOES INTO YOUR ENGINE!

If the engine isn't properly treated, rust WILL FORM
Rust=DEATH for any motor

Some may say you don't need to bother. Well you may have gotten away with not winterizing,
but rest assured you've sacrificed up to 25% of your engine life by allowing rust and corrosion to form in your engine during the off season.
If you check your owners manual, you'll see that most vendors suggest "fogging" the engine with anti-corrosive oil when you aren't going to use the ski for as little as two weeks!

That's just one of the things that happens during a winterizing service.

There are lots of "experts" out on the lake that will give you what appears to be good information.

Does that information actually apply to your Jetski?

Case in point:

Drain the fuel tank or fill it and add stabilizer?

For Jetskis with fuel injected engines, you do NOT want to drain the tank


WHY?

Your uber-costly fuel pump ( upwards of $500) should not be allowed to sit dry for any length of time.
The smallest bit of corrosion can cause premature pump failure and a shockingly large repair bill

The guy at  the next campsite will tell you :

I just drain the tanks each season, no problems for me!

Well, that is the correct advice for a carbureted engine, but NOT for a fuel injected one.

and there's more....

How do you drain the engine block of water?

Some ski engine blocks self drain, some need to have certain hoses disconnected and have anti-freeze injected

Want to take a chance we won't get a couple of sub 30 degree evenings this winter?

One fellow did up in SantaFe and his repair bill was over $1000
He developed a water leak from the base of the engine block,
it doesn't take much ice to force a gasket out of position

Captain Pete knows what your ski needs to be ready to go come next season!

You get what you pay for!

Since you are already here, just do a web search for winterizing and your model ski

Captain Pete does what is required to assure you get the maximum hours out of your ski with minimal maintenance expenses

Don't just spray some fogging oil into your engine and call it a day.
CHECK YOUR OWNERS MANUAL

Winterizing a 4 stroke jet ski requires much more then just engine fogging.
Check your Owners guide!

Seadoo Supercharged 4-tecs require additional services to prevent engine damage come next spring.

Neglect one very important part of the end of season service and
you risk doing thousands of dollars of damage to your engine

Captain Pete knows what to do!

Should you fill your tank and add stabilizer? or drain your tank?
Ask Captain Pete, he'll tell you why either way may be the "right" way for your ski.
