winterize a 2001 gpr1200

I need to winterize my 2001 gpr 1200. I am looking for advice on how to do it. I did it last year and my throttle stuck. I had to have the carbs rebuilt. not sure if it was coincidence or my fault. SO please give any info I want to do this tomorrow. I have 2005 vx110 also could always use a refresher on how to do that also.

Thanks again TOm

See this link for doing the VX, most steps should be the same:

I think the big thing with carbs. on your 1200 is to be sure to run some stabilized fuel through the engine 1st. I use Stabil Marine. Then fog the carbs if it is possible. I can't remember how its done on the might not be possible due to the location of the carbs. If you can't fog directly through the carbs, then I'd add a heavy dose of carb treatment to the fuel along with the stabilizer and run that through. I'd recommend Yamaha Ring Free Plus, but SeaFoam is another choice. This will help prevent your carbs from varnishing up when the fuel in them dries out. I'd also spray some fogging oil into each cylinder after you remove the plugs and spin the engine over a few times to distribute it. Here is a link with other tips for 2 strokes: Winterization Instructions

I lube the cables with a cable luber.
