My wife and I recently purchased snowmobiles for the first time in our lives this winter. We now have a small problem. The winter is coming to an end and we will have to store them for summer. Here is the dilema. WHAT DO I DO???????

Could some of you die hard snowmobilers give us a few tips on how to get the sleds ready for their summer nap?

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks in advance!!!

The following always worked for me:
Add fuel stabilizer to the gas. Run engine for a few minutes. Shut off engine and remove spark plugs. Add a teaspoon or so of oil directly into the spark plug hole(s). Turn engine over a few revolutions to help coat the cylinder walls with a film of oil. Reinsert spark plugs. Remove the battery and store it out of the weather. Trickle charge it every few months to keep it fresh. Get the bottom of the skis up off the ground (a couple of 3 foot lengths of 2X6 work well). Raise the back end to so that the suspension 'hangs' freely and the track is off of the ground. Grease all fittings. Cover the sled loosely. That should do 'er for ya.
