I finally had to put her away , lousy Canadain weather!
I was wondering if you guys had any good tips for us noobs? Last year i was lucky enough to have a heated garage to put it into. This year it''s my folks shed.
So far i let the bike run with the gas turned off, untill it ran out of gas. Then I checked the coolant. I put some fuel stabilizer in the tank. Removed the battery. Is there anything im missing?
Any hints would be helpfull :D thx guys

Top off the fuel tank to reduce the amount of air in there, less open space means less room for condensation to form and cause rust in the tank. next drain the float bowls if you dont really like pulling the carbs in the spring. also put the battery on a trickle charger to keep it from going bad.

I could be wrong but it sounds like your getting air in the gas lines. Is your gas cap tightening correct and working properly? Check all fuel lines to see if you have a crack or loose and air getting in.
I think it is motor out mate, but not ahard job, but first drain it then put some old oil in if you have any , run it up then add engine flush, run it up and then drain , ready for fresh, just follow the manual.
Change gearbox oil every 3000 miles. Change oil filter every 6000 miles. Use 10w40 motor oil. NEVER use synthetic lubricants as they can mess up the clutch.
Oil the chain every two weeks. Lube the control cables every oil filter change.
Keep the gas tank full in the cold months. This lessens internal tank rusting due to condensation in the tank. Drain the carbs when the bike will sit over the winter unless you plan on starting the bike every two weeks and letting it run for 15 minutes each time.
Be sure the gas valve is turned off when the bike is not in use.
Get a 2 amp trickle charger and charge the battery once a week for 4 hours in the winter. Be sure to keep enough water in the battery to cover the top of the plates in each cell. Know that batteries only last two years or so.
Check the chain tension once a month during the summer riding season.
