Re: Winter Storage Tips

Well its about that time here in good ol michigan. I was just wondering what are some pointers for a good storage of the bike. I do have a cover and usually get the tires off the ground. I also have an ohlins damper i was wondering if i should do anything to that to prep it for the cold. Any info is helpful. Thanks.

Re: Winter Storage Tips

- check the antifreeze for freeze point, change/add if necessary
- change the oil
- lube chain, cables, moving parts
- fresh full tank of gas, add StaBil fuel stabilizer and run to circulate
- remove battery and put it on a Battery Tender
