Fill the tank with new gas and add stabilizer. Change the oil/filter, remove the spark plug and put a teaspoon of oil into the top of the cylinder. Drain the carb. Put the bike on a stand off of the wheels. Take out the battery and put it on a tender. If you've got semi-fresh coolant/antifreeze, you should be fine. If it's questionable, then change it. That should be it...SC

when you put oil in down the spark hole what do you do? just put put the plug in? what kinda oil do you put in?

will the battery go dead if its left in?

You just use the same oil as in the crankcase, then put the plug back in. Pulling the battery will keep it from corroding at the cable connections and keeping it on the tender will keep it fresh and charged for when you're ready to ride again...SC

We also had two snowfalls so far this year but im not putting my bike away just yet, im hoping for at least one more warm day so i can go for a ride, then I will also be doing exactly what you guys listed above except I drain my fuel tank , and run the engine to burn the gas out of the carb. Next year you will want new fresh gas anyhow so I don't see anyone wasting money on fuel stabilizer.
