I was wondering what everyone does to prepare thier sleds for the time when we don't have snow. Should I get all the fluids out or what? I usually siphon most of the gas and then run the rest out of it. Should I also drain oil and coolant or what. Tell me every step...

i ------------------->
top off the tank
add fuel stabilizer
100:1 pre mix in the tank (keeps seals nice)
run the motor till the stabilized/pre-mixed fuel gets into the carbs
remove airbox and spray fogging oil into carbs till motor stalls or chugs
reinstall airbox
remove plugs and put 1 tablespoon of oil in each cyl and pull over a couple of times
spray everything with silicone or a light oil including all suspension parts
clean and wax
put in the trailer until the ground is white again

Hey f5snopro, why don't you put fogging oil in the cylinders also. I do the exact same things you do, but always spray the fogging oil in the jugs instead of putting oil like you mentioned. Just wondering what your reasoning is. I am all for doing the best for taking care of my sled.
