put cardboard under your wing from front to back, do what ronzilla said but before putting the cover on your wing coat with lemon pledge. seafoam works as a gas stabilizer too.

Fill gas tank, pull into garage, put up on A stand, place carpet strips under wheels, hook up battery tender, put on Tour King cover and good night see ya in the spring.

If the bike is going to be laid up for only 2-3 months, what about starting it and letting it warm up every week or so? It will be in an heated garage. I used to do that with my old cruiser and didn't have any problems. It kept the battery up and the fuel was going through it. As for the lemon pledge, its all I ever use to clean the bike. When we have really hot summers here in Newfoundland, there are always water restrictions which means washing vehicles is not permitted.....with water anyway. Lyndon

I've never run the bike once I put it away for the season. The battery tender takes care of the battery which keeps the electronics safe. The issue with running it is how long to run it to avoid any moisture/condensation in the exhaust system and heating the engine oil to avoid problems. I've heard estimates of 30 - 45 minutes of run time needed. But if you have done it in the past and feel comfortable with doing it, go for it...

Thanks Two Wheel. My old bike was a nothing compared to the Wing. So I'll be safe and follow the manual as well as the great advice from you masters of this forum. And by the way, Congrats Quadzilla ! Lyndon
