I wanted to say that this site has taught me a great deal about my passion of riding - Thanks!!
This is going to be my first winter with my bike and I wanted to ask the gurus out there what I have to do to get my bike prepped for storage.
I've heard about the gumming of the carbs and other fuel system plugs. Just want to make sure I don't do something stupid and pay for it next riding season.
I have a 2001 R1 and I've gone through the manual and will proceed with the teaspoon of oil in each cylinder to prevent rusting. I'll be storing the bike in my garage with entire bike supported and off the floor.
Should I get all the fuel out of the tank?
Is there a simple way of getting the fuel already in the carbs out without taking the whole thing apart?
Should I increase the tire pressure while it is stored over the winter - it will be on a full set of stands and off the floor?
Thanks for any help you can give me
