Default Storing CBR 600 F4i for the winter....

What do I have to do to store my motocycle for the winter? I am bringing it to my parents garage in the cold and was wondering how do I properly store it?

Fuel stabilizer.
Battery on a tender.
plug intake and exhaust so rodents don't decide to live in it.
put it on stands (not strictly necessary).

I would put some SeaFoam stabilizer in it, and go out and drive it 15 or 20 miles. I wouldnt bother with the intake/exhaust thing but it isn't a bad idea. You can use a battery tender or just take it out and charge it every once in a while. Winters aren't as long as people make them sound.

I've used Sta-bil many of times with good results.

Typically I use Sta-bil in my boat during the winter because it is cheaper than SeaFoam, and when I am trying to stabilize 150-200 gallons it saves a decent amount of money.

Also used it in Mowers, Cars, Etc.....

I have been using sta-bil for about 5 or 6 years in my del sol. Even once it was turbo'd, and it pops off every time in the spring without skipping a beat. This is such a sad time of year. all the toys must get put away.
