I will try to ride my MB as long as I can, but if i decide it is just too cold here in Minnesota, is there anything I should do besides empty the gas tank to get it ready for winter storage (in a heated garage)??
Get all of the gas out of the carb. Take it apart and very lightly blow with compressed air, or take all the rubber seals out and use carb cleaner. Or a dousing with rubbing alcohol prolly would work without damaging the seals.
The jet and the little needle valve on the float tend to clog up very easily when the gas gets old
This part might be overkill, but take the spark plug out and put a few drops of motor oil in the hole to prevent the piston ring from rusting. Then put the spark plug back in.
you could probably just winterize it, they have additive for the gas, you run it through then blow some carb winterizer into that and should be good. its what ive done for my snowmobiles and whatnot for years.
Well, Ive got to get my mind into winter mode. Went out Sat. at 05:30, 46 deg. in a sweat suit, no gloves or cap. Got home, after 45 minutes I gave up and took a shower to warm up. Sometimes kerf don't engage brain before starting bike.
