I flush the engine with fresh water, then inject antifreeze into the water passages, I spray fogging oil into the cylinders also. I store with a full tank of gas and fuel stabilizer. I remove my battery and keep it in my shop on a battery tender also
I already live in the southern most part of my country. LOL.
Yea, I'm sure that there is some stuff that you should do with the Spark to store it for the winter. It gets awfully cold in Canada and freezing can't be good for the Spark. I'll return to this thread when it comes time.
are you guys crazy, pretty much all marinas where i live (ontario) offer dry and heated winter storage. You go before hand top off your fluids ad a stabalizer, take the battery home and they look after it all winter....
Harsh winter cold temperatures in combination with snow, sleet and ice can and will cause significant damage to improperly stored marine investments. Sterndrives, inboards, outboards, hulls and trailers all require some level of winter protection. The level of provided care will extend or reduce internal combustion engine lifespans, upholstry, carpets and hull integrity and overall appearance.
The number one decision is the type of storage for your craft over the winter period. Are you going to choose the Superior Program of inside storage (stored properly inside a specifically designed building) or outside Basic storage where the boat is encased in plastic wrap? To aid in this decision please click on this link... Inside Storage versus Shrink Wrap. Superior Inside Boat Storage will be more expensive than Basic Shrink Wrap Storage methods.
Huntsville Marine does provide inside and shrink wrap storage services. It is our opinion that proper inside storage systems provide best care paractices and extends the lifespan of marine equipment. Inside boat storage as in all storage must be done right....no shortcuts! It is not that it is inside a building it must also include proper preparation, storage, startup and testing.
Srsbz what marina will tickle your battery over the winter? Oh trickle charge your battery read it wrong
Seaking I lived in Kenora Ontario Canada in 1975 and we drove snowmobiles to school on occasion and I can remember my father taking the snowmobile to work at the paper mill and their being more sleds than cars there!
Hi guys, I am asking you for help because for half a year I have a problem with my 2017 Seadoo Spark. When I jump on the waves or speed up my spark the LIMP HOME MODE error crashes. It seems to me that this happens when I accelerate rapidly. For me it is associated with a throttle valve or...
Will be changing my plugs this year. Dealer wants $400 Cdn. Looking to do it myself.
do the hull washers need to be replaced every time you take the top off?
how do you get rid of the maintenance message I’ve read about that pops up?
I started to winterize my spark by connecting hose to the flushing port and using a pump to push the fluid through.
Instead of the fluid coming out of the jet nozzle it started coming out of the bottom of the ski. Is this as bad as I think it is? Is the manifold probably cracked? Is there...
Hi just wondering what the siphon tube is for. I had the spark out on the lake and sucked up a small stone which blocked the siphon tubes little entry hole. The spark went into limp mode, the wear ring was also quite worn but still good.
Also is it normal For water to enter the hull when...
My VTS seems to be not going up all the way anymore. I never hit anything, not the dock or anything. Has 12 hours on it. Before the last ride I was able to wheelie no problems. I have the warranty but just didn’t know if anyone had any issues.
