Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best way to store a motorcycle during the winter?
The best way to store a motorcycle during the winter is in a clean, dry environment, such as a drive-up storage unit. It is also important to properly prepare the motorcycle for storage by cleaning it, adding a fuel stabilizer to the gas tank, and properly inflating the tires.
How can I protect my motorcycle from rust and corrosion while in storage?
There are several ways to protect your motorcycle from rust and corrosion while in storage:
- Clean the motorcycle thoroughly before storing it, paying special attention to removing any dirt or grime from metal surfaces.
- Use a corrosion-preventive spray or oil on all metal parts, including the chain, sprockets, and exposed metal on the frame and engine.
- Keep the motorcycle covered with a breathable cover to protect it from dust and moisture.
- Keep the tires properly inflated to prevent flat spotting and to reduce the risk of the motorcycle falling over.
- Start your motorcycle periodically during storage to circulate the oil and prevent rust from forming inside the engine.
- Disconnect the battery and store it in a place where the temperature is moderate.
- Use a moisture-absorbing pack in the storage unit to absorb any moisture that may accumulate.
By following these steps, you can help protect your motorcycle from rust and corrosion while it is in storage.
Should I store my motorcycle with a full tank of gas or empty?
It is generally recommended to store your motorcycle with a full tank of gas.
When the gas tank is full, there is less room for air and less oxygen in the tank which can help prevent the formation of condensation. Condensation can lead to water contamination in the fuel system, which can cause rust and corrosion.
Additionally, when you store your motorcycle with a full tank of gas, it also helps to protect the fuel system by keeping the internal parts coated in fuel. This can help to prevent the rubber seals from drying out and cracking.
However, it is important to add a fuel stabilizer to the gas tank before storage. This will help to keep the fuel fresh and prevent it from breaking down, which can cause damage to the carburetor or fuel injection system.
If you can’t fill the tank, you can also drain the fuel tank as much as possible, run the engine until it stalls, and add a fuel stabilizer to the remaining fuel. This will help to prevent the fuel from breaking down, and also reduce the risk of moisture entering the tank and causing rust.
Is it necessary to cover my motorcycle while in storage?
While it is not strictly necessary to cover your motorcycle while in storage, it is highly recommended. A cover can help protect your motorcycle from dust, debris, and other environmental factors that can cause damage over time.
A motorcycle cover is designed to keep dust, dirt, and other debris from settling on your motorcycle. It also protects the paint from fading, cracking or chipping and prevents scratches and dings from occurring.
A breathable cover is ideal as it allows air to circulate around the motorcycle and prevents moisture from accumulating, which can lead to rust and corrosion.
If you don’t have a cover, you can use a sheet or tarp to cover your motorcycle, but make sure it is clean and doesn’t have any abrasive material that can scratch the paint.
Should I disconnect my battery while storing my motorcycle?
It is a good idea to disconnect the battery when storing your motorcycle for an extended period of time. If the battery is not disconnected, it may discharge over time due to the motorcycle’s internal electronics drawing a small amount of power.
Disconnecting the battery will also prevent any accidental short circuits and it will also prevent any parasitic drains that can cause the battery to die.
How do I properly maintain my tired while my motorcycle is in storage?
Properly maintaining your motorcycle’s tires while in storage is important to ensure they will be ready to go when you are ready to ride again. Here are a few steps to follow:
- Properly inflate the tires: Before storing your motorcycle, make sure the tires are properly inflated to the recommended pressure. Under-inflated tires can develop flat spots, which can be difficult to remove.
- Use tire stands: If possible, store the motorcycle on its center stand or on a set of rear and front paddock stands, which will take the weight off the tires and help to prevent flat spotting.
- Clean the tires: Clean the tires before storing the motorcycle to remove any dirt or debris that could cause damage.
- Use tire covers: If possible use tire covers or plastic bags to cover the tires, this will help to protect them from dust, debris and sunlight.
- Rotate the tires: If you plan to store the motorcycle for an extended period of time, rotate the tires every couple of months to prevent flat spotting in one area.
- Check the tire pressure and condition before using the motorcycle again.
By following these steps, you can help to preserve the condition of your motorcycle’s tires while it is in storage and ensure they will be ready to go when you are ready to ride again.
