    winterizing

    do you guys do anything special when putting your bike up for the winter?? I'm hoping to get one more ride up here in the Northeast but snow is around the corner. My bike will probably go unused for a solid 3 months. Any tips would be appreciated.

    I usually pull it out of the garage and do some donuts in the snow. Then put it up. Repeat daily.

    I dont do much with it except put on icetires. So my tip to you are: get your tires studded!

    You can either put stabil in the gas or drain it all out, change the crankcase oil, fog the cylinder with fogging oil, make sure that all parts have a good layer of corrosion resistance on them.

    What does fogging the cylinder do?

    Keeps everything from corroding.
