If you will not operate the motorcycle for several months, such as during the winter, store the motorcycle to prevent
damage to the fuel system and the battery and to protect components from corrosion or deterioration. During storage
you might use products that are potentially hazardous; such as fuel stabilizer. When using any of these products, fol-
low the instructions and warnings on the product packaging.
This section includes instructions for preparing the motorcycle for storage, maintaining it during storage and remov-
ing it from storage.
Storage Area Preparation
Choose a dry, well-ventilated storage location, inside a garage or other structure if possible. The location should have
a firm, flat surface and allow enough space for the motorcycle.
To best preserve tire condition:
• The storage area should have a relatively constant and moderate temperature.
• The storage surface should be free of oil and gasoline.
• The motorcycle should not be near a radiator or other heat source, or any type of electric motor.
