Ive never done anything spesifiv before the winter, my R6 gets fresh oil and a full gass tank.. thats all.. But I start it every 14 days to make sure everythng stays lubed up! Then I dont have to worry about draining the carbs or anything! But for my WR.. Its gonna used and abused everyday here in Norway! Saltwater on the roads, 0- (-30 degrees celsius) and hard riding on icy lakes and winter roads! If it can handle one winter here it can take everything!

"I always set it to TDC after a ride too. A few mornings when I kicked it over it felt like the spark plug was out. I took it into a heated garage to check it out and the compression came back by itself. I think that condensation froze on open valve stems and wouldn't let them close. Since I started leaving it at TDC I haven't had the problem."
It seems to me that if a bike was stored with the valves open, air would be allowed into the cylinder so I am going to store mine on TDC also.

My suggestion is to throw chains on and hit the trails at least twice a week!
