I really dodnt want to bring this up, but for some of us its getting a little colder out and we have to start thinKing about the bike.

I have never done a winterization on my own, Im wondering what is involved because i really dont feel like paying anyone this winter.

All I do is hook the bike up to my smart charger and make sure the tank is full of fresh gas. I also lube and adjust the chain. A good cleaning too if you desire. For a four or five month storage, especialy when it is cold, you really do not need to do much.

Winter is fast approaching and if you live in a frigid climate it's time to store your bike for the season. In storing your bike for a few months over the winter, your main concern is to avoid corrosion while in storage and the goal is to have a bike that is ready to go when you are.

Trickle charger on the battery, fuel can also clean/lube chain and throw a cover over it.
