Warm up the bike after the last ride you take so that all of the condensation in the bike is dried from the exhaust. Fill up the tank completely after your ride because unleaded petrol is able to evaporate when coming into contact with oxygen. This could lead to potential residue which can clog the carb.
Turn the fuel tap off and make sure that the engine runs until it ceases to function.
Remove all of the float bowl petrol after the engine stalls. If the bike is older than four years, you should think about completely emptying the tank as water may accumulate in the tank's base and cause rusting.
Use WD40 or another oil spray to all metal parts except for the working surfaces such as the control levers, footrests, and brake discs. This will serve to prevent corrosion and spraying the metal several times throughout the winter will also help prevent damage. Additionally, inspect the bike to make sure that there is no grime or grit building up on the motorcycle.
Clean all of the components of the bike where water or dirt may collect. This is particularly important with the shock absorber linkages, the radiator, and engine where dirt is more likely to collect.
Make sure that all of the electrical connectors have been well oiled particularly on bikes which have numerous exposed components.
If you intend to use your bike during the winter months, place mudguard extenders on the bike to protect against road dirt and salt. After each ride, wash away any salt or dirt and dry the bike thoroughly. The tyres should be particularly cared for during the winter as they are required to work harder so winter tyres are an excellent idea for colder weather.
Make sure that the drive chain is lubricated to prevent rust and that all of the pivot points are oiled as well. The foot peg pivots are particularly important as they are likely to collect dirt and salt. When corrosion first occurs, act immediately so that it will not spread to other parts of the bike.
These tips to winterise the bike are not complete but provide a general guide to protect your bike during the colder months. Proper care and maintenance will ensure that your bike will withstand the winter and be in excellent condition and just as functional in the spring.
