Question about 2006 Yamaha SR 400

1 Answer

Winter storage Thanks guru for the answer, but I am unable to find repair manuals that pre date 1996. The earliest I can find is 2001. Would that work? Also I live in Korea and I am keeping my Yamaha sr 400 outside for the winter and I want to know if there are any precautions I should take. Thanks for the information.

Hello,

I am not the original guru, but when storing a bike for a long period you should:
- Fill the fuel tank as much as possible to prevent rust forming inside the tank.
- Best to rest the tyres on something soft (bit of carpet maybe) to stop them going hard on the concrete.
- Disconnect the battery (possibly store that inside the house or shed) and a few days before you wish to ride again put the battery on trickle charge.
- Cover the bike with a waterproof cover to keep the moisture off of it best you can.

If your brake fluid is in need of changing, do so before long-term storage. Similarly, hydraulic clutch fluid should be changed before you store your bike; both systems may suffer failure if moisture gets in. Also make sure your coolant is fresh, as deposits can form from old fluid. For service intervals, consult your owner's manual.
