TIPS FOR STORAGE YOUR MOTORCYCLE
We recommend the use of a fuel stabilizer to keep your gas fresh and to protect your carbs and gas tank from corrosion and residue deposits.
HOW TO USE A FUEL STABILIZER:
Fill your tank and add stabilizer using the directions on the bottle.
Run the engine for a few minutes to circulate the mixture in to the carbs.
fuel injectors are less affected but still greatly benefit from this additive.
Tires are affected by heat, sunlight and dampness, as well as ozone, which is given off by electric motors.
keep your bike out of direct sunlight and away from electric motors such as refrigerators, freezers, etc.
store your bike with the tires fully inflated in a cool dry place.
if you have a center stand use it to keep weight off the tires.
The easiest way to prolong battery life is to keep it fully charged.
we recommend to use the YUASA charger. These chargers can be left plugged in indefinitely and will self regulate to keep the battery charged.
During regular use, your engine oil becomes acidic from combustion.
prior to storage we recommend that you change your oil and filter, and run the engine for a few minutes to circulate the new oil.
you may want to change it again in the spring as condensation can form in your engine during the cold weather.
It is also a good idea to apply a liberal coating of lubricant to your chain, cables, lever pivots, linkages, etc.
