Mark, my son in law is a jet-ski mechanic, mainly Sea-Doo, but also has plenty of experience with Polaris & Yamaha's. I can have him get in touch with you if you'd like.

Hey Alley Cat, I have 3 tigersharks, and have winterized mine for the past 8 years with no trouble. the dealer I got one from told me to do it this way and seemed easy enough.

I first run around the lake awhile with some sea foam and stabil in the gas, then pull them out on the trailer and drain what water I can out of them. Then I start by running a gallon of RV antifreeze in thru the cooling outlet hole on the side of the boat, (not sure where yours are), while the engine is running or idling, and make sure it works its way thru the exhaust, then I disconnect one of the cooling lines that run to the front of the engine and run another gallon of RV antifreeze thru that, by then I can see it goes thru the screens and engine, then on the Tigersharks, there is a hose or one of mine has a petcock valve on the front of the engine, I open that or take the hose off at that point, then park them on a hill nose down at about a 45% angle for a few hours to a day, this drains the water out of the engine, (also it says this right on the machine to drain the engine of water for winter storage this way), grease the drive shaft, put a couple of drops of oil in the cylinders, turn it over a couple of times, pull the batteries, and actually wash them up good before I park them on the hill and leave all the covers open and seats off and let them dry up really really good,
after that, put them in storage, if you have problem with small critters, put some peppermint extract in the holes, better smelling then moth balls. I then trickle charge the batteries 2 amps for an hour, then put them on a shelf in the basement. $20 for the 6 gallons of RV antifreeze, hope this helps.
