Alright,
The time is nearby and is very dissappointing but winter is coming and i need to put the bike away soon. The questions i have is this:

1. I have a garage and it will be stored there (insullated)
2. Do i have to do anything special with the cylinders if i start it once a week
3. I will be drainging the oil and put fresh oil in it
4. Anything else i might be missing- If i have a full tank of gas is that bad


Give me your advice

I try to ride it long into the fall and early spring- if it aint raining i pretty much love to ride it.

Thanks Guys

Jesus hubert christ...

short term storage is a simple thing. By short term i mean 6 months or less.

1. Fill with fresh gas
2. Change the oil with something cheap (like GN4)
3. Park it somewhere clean
4. Remove the battery
5. put on a full cover
6. Walk away and do nothing unless you plan to ride it
(optional) use stands if you've got them. otherwise the side stand is fine.

and that's it. again, do not start it unless you are going to dedicate time to riding it a long distance, and not just letting it warm up. Store the battery inside the house and on a maintainer if nessessary. it wouldn't hurt to clean and lube the chain either. I did exactly this last year and it fired right up. I did not use a fuel stabliser (because it's a waste, gas doesn't go bad that fast) nor did i use a battery maintainer.

THERE IS THIS THREAD AS WELL>>

This method has never failed me. My bike started up every Spring and never had any issues.

1) Fill up tank and put some Stabil in it.
2) Hookup battery tender.
3) Put bike on stands.

That's it. Forget changing the oil. Forget removing the battery. It's a Honda, it will start again in the spring.

All I do is fill the tank to the brim and put some stabil in. Then let it fun for about 10 mins to get some stabil in the cylinders. Then just let the bike sit. I may start it every now and than just to hear it run and let the fluids flow a little. Havn't had any problems and the bike usually starts right up in the spring.

Some more tips...

I always clean the bike real good too before putting it away and wax the chain.

Spary some WD40 in the exhaust pipe and cover them.

Cover the air ducts.
