If you don't want to freeze over atop your motorcycle during the colder months, it's a good idea to winterize your vehicle and put it away for the time being. Before you do, however, you should read through the tips below, so your motorcycle can work perfectly once it's time to ride it again.

How to Winterize and Store Your Motorcycle Expertly

Add a Fuel Stabilizer to the Gas Tank

Believe it or not, the fuel in your motorcycle can go bad if it's left unused for long periods of time. This is because its particles change and the substance starts leaving sludge behind. As you can imagine, this isn't good news for your motorcycle and its components. For that reason, before you store it away for the winter, you need to add a fuel stabilizer to the gas tank. This will help prevent that process, meaning you will be able to use your motorcycle without problems when spring arrives.

Work on Replacing the Oil and Oil Filter

With time and use, the oil in your motorcycle will become old and will need to be changed so your engine can remain properly lubricated and protected. Said replacements need to take place around once or twice a year (depending on how you use your motorcycle). If you haven't taken care of this crucial maintenance task in awhile, this is the perfect time to do it, so when the temperature increases, you can ride your motorcycle confidently, smoothly, and powerfully right away. To make sure your engine will continue to give you the powerful, thrilling, and fun rides you want on your motorcycle, make sure to only feed it the best synthetic motorcycle oil in Conyers, AMSOIL.

Take Care of the Motorcycle's Battery

Needless to say, your motorcycle requires a functional battery in order to turn on and to power certain features. What you may not know, however, is that putting your battery through long periods of inactivity may cause it to lose its charge and corrode. For that reason, it is a better move to take the battery off the motorcycle while it is in storage. Depending on the battery, you may also need to recharge it once in awhile.

Keep Up with the Anti-Freeze

When the conditions outside are truly frightful, your motorcycle will need all of the help it can get to keep its fluids from freezing over and causing chaos in it. Enter, the anti-freeze. As you may know, its purpose is to prevent the fluids in your motorcycle from rendering it useless due to the low temperatures. That's why it is extremely important that you check your motorcycle's anti-freeze before it's stored away. Verify that it's in the right condition and levels so it can provide the service you need from it.

Clean Your Motorcycle Through and Through

Something you may not have considered when thinking about winterizing your motorcycle is that storing it away when it's all dirty, filled with bugs and filth, can actually be very problematic. This is because, believe it or not, those dust particles, dead insects, water puddles, and more, can actually eat away at your motorcycle, its paint, and its components, affecting its performance and lifespan. If you don't want that to happen, clean your motorcycle through and through before storing it.

Know Where and How to Store It

As a final tip, you should know how to store your motorcycle properly so it can wait for you in mint condition for when the temperatures increase once more. To that end, you should keep it in a safe place, such as a garage, to keep it protected. Likewise, you should invest in a high-quality cover that can keep dust, bugs, and moisture away from it while it's not being used. As a final suggestion, put your motorcycle on a stand, so its tires aren't flattened by the weight while the winter months come and go.
