I'm in northern Ontario and I'm thinking of where to store my spark this winter. I have a drive-in shed on my farm that we store most of our vehicles in but there is obviously no heat there at all. Has anyone had their spark survive a winter of -40 outside? I'll be keeping it covered for sure, the only exposed part will be the hull. I'll also be winterizing it as per the service manual specifies (Fogging, Flushing then air blasting the exhaust... etc)

My other option is leaving it in our heated garage, but space in there is very limited.

I left mine outside in a non heated three wall shed. All I did was blow out the exhaust and back it in. Survived -40 just fine. Temperature shouldn't affect it as long as the exhaust is blown out. I went out once a month and fired it up.

Thanks for the reply, I guess mine should be fine, It would probably be better to start it every once in a while rather than letting it sit with just fogging oil in the cylinders. I like the idea of running it to get oil back into the head.

That's why I started it. I never fogged it so I just went out every few weeks and let it run for a minute to keep rust from forming in the cyliners

Basically, that and having general knowledge about PWC's and servicing them. Do that and you're golden.
I was mostly concerned about the hull being plastic, plastics do not like the cold (or heat)
