    I dont think your supposed to start your bike. I would just put in the stabilizer, clean your chain and just let it sit until next season. Thats what i always do and she runs perfect.

    I would suggest reading your manual. Someone on here said that, and I read mine. Seems to cover basically everything, with the odd things that seem like money grabs.

    Be a man, ride year 'round like me!

    (actually, the only reason I ride year round is I'm too poor to get a car...)
    The Ages Of Women
    1. Between the ages of 16 and 18, she is like Africa, virgin and unexplored.
    2. Between the ages of 19 and 35, she is like Asia, hot and exotic.
    3. Between the ages of 36 and 45, she is like America, fully explored, breathtakingly beautiful, and free with her resources.
    4. Between the ages of 46 and 56, she is like Europe, exhausted but still has points of interest.
    5. After 56 she is like Australia, everybody knows it's down there but who gives a damn?

    All I do is put methyl hydrate in my tank which breaks up any water, run the motor to get it in the carbs then pull the battery and bring it in the house so it doesnt freeze. Ideally if you trickle charge it occasionally the battery will stay healthy for longer. When I lived in PG Iworked at an RV place the mechanics used a foaming oil product that was sprayed in the cylinders of boat motors to coat everything I have a can somewhere but havent used it on my bikes yet
    It's not important how many people I've killed. What's important is how i get along with the ones that are still alive!
