Ok, so what do you have to do??
The great thing about excruciating pain is....at least you know you are alive.

I've seen countless videos on YTube about winterizing OB motors and I have read as many articles on the subject as well.
 
Fogging....changing oil....treating gas....and a few other things seems to be what most do...or used to do.
 
Recently I have read a couple of articles indicating the new 4 stroke motors do not need to be fogged or run out of gas.  Both would actually be detrimental to the engine.
 
What say you?
 
Update:
Just had a conversation with a Suzuki dealer in Bath, NC and he indicated the "best" thing to do was just run the motor every couple of weeks with non eth fuel that has had stabilizer added.  Interesting.
