How sad. The babies have all been put to sleep for the winter. Here's the ritual..... 1. Put some Stabil in the gas, run bike, turn off petcock. 2. Change oil and filter. 3. Circulate fresh oil. 4. Remove and charge battery. If sealed, I leave it in bike. 5. Take old tube sock and cover exhause pipes (keeps mice from having a place to spend the Winter. 6. Spray exposed aluminum with WD40. 7. Cover with sheets, then a platic tarp. That's about it. Come Spring all I ever do is put the battery back in, check tire pressure, clean air filters, and I'm ready to roll. After a quick spin, they all get a hot bubble bath.... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
