Η γνωστή επιχείρηση ανταλλακτικών Harper's συστήνει τα παρακάτω τα οποία θεωρώ πως είναι καλό να γίνουν γνωστά σε όσους (κακώς) βγάζουν εκτός τη μηχανή τους με τα πρώτα κρύα.

Winterizing tips
Each year about this time we get a few questions about how to winterize a motorcycle. Now even though this task can be left open to many an interpretation, here are some of the best things you can do.
Do your spring oil and filter changes before you put your motorcycle away for the winter. Get any old contaminants out of the engine before they settle into sludge over the winter.
Fill the fuel tank completely. This eliminates air space that allows condensation to form and become water in the gas and then rust in the tank.
Drain the carbs if your bike is not fuel injected. I actually will fill the float bowls with 2 stroke oil to keep any corrosion from beginning. In the spring drain the oil out. When the new gas is introduced to the oil in the spring the remaining oil will dilute and will be run thru giving the rings and valves a little extra shot of lube on start up.
Fogging the cylinders. Marine fogging oil shot into the cylinder will form a nice layer on the cylinder wall protecting from moisture build up.
Put the bike on the center stand if it has one to keep the rear tire from getting a flat spot, some folks will also put something under the bike to get the front wheel off the ground as well.
Remove the battery if the bike is stored outside or in an unheated garage. Trickle chargers are nice, but we have found with some of the gel batteries it is better to just leave them inside for the winter and give them one good solid charge in the spring.
Lube cables on the bike, again to keep moisture out and reduce rust and corrosion.
Motorcycle covers are good as long as they allow air to breathe so to speak, so they don’t build moisture underneath.
Take a few minutes to take care of your motorcycle now so you son't have to spend hours and lots of money doing it later.
