  1. rules of thumb:
    -. top up fuel
    -. disconnect battery
    -. get wheels off the ground

    anything else?

    before ride:
    -. tyre pressure
    -. change fuel
    -. change oil
    -. reconnect battery

  2. depends, in some places you need to go all out, where are you winterising?
  3. Not riding in winter? whodathunkit :?
  4. 1) Keep tyres topped up.
    2) Keep fuel topped up.
    3) Keep oil topped up.
    4) Ride at least 3 times a week. :biker:

  6. as in... being garaged for a period of time :D hey it's winterization in the US, shelved in down under??
  7. When is it too cold and wet for more than a week in Melbourne, just put it in the garage and ride it on the sunny days,
    It should still fire up very easily after a month sitting in the garage,
    Just put it on the centre stand and chuck a rag over it to stop the dust getting on it.
    Winterisation, What a load of Bollocks.
    If you lived at Mt Hotham. yeah, your snowed in, but Melb, Forget it.
  8. Hibernation, perhaps? No such thing as winterization over here. No such thing as anythingization over here. Pretty much left at *ising
  9. +1 to riding it through winter.
