Step one fill with gas, step two park in garage or under tarp but do step three first, step three bring battery inside

But what if you're one of those weirdos that keeps their bike inside the house? Should you worry as much?

I don't worry about blocking the mufflers but I always put a plastic bag under the airbox cover to keep vermin out. Re road salt: I commuted on motorcycles for 3 decades, with sidecars for winter. I learned early that you shouldn't use your good bike after they start salting the roads (it costs less to keep a beater than you would spend keeping one bike in good shape) and washing a bike in winter makes it rust faster plus gets water into places where it can freeze and cause problems so I never wash the winter one until after the street sweeper has made its spring rounds.

Is it safe to charge the battery on the bike while the bike is under a cover?  I'm using a Nelson-Rigg Deluxe All-Season cover (it looks like the one you eschew here, but it is ventilated) and a Battery Tender Jr. in a garage. Thanks for all your help.

Excellent video..But I Need Your Help......Question....>> now will Balsamic Arbitrator be a potential bi partizan re-coil in the middle of winter or should i simply take the Neo Transosphere from the exhaust coolant thus creating a 3 or possible 4 uniilaterial regain from its temperature co-axle indicator ?..Any assistance would be appreciated!..JayJay

That was the best video for winterizing I have seen. To be honest I might like it the best because it's pretty much what I do already. I did not know about the battery issue but that does make sense.
Skirnirs Fahrt (5 months ago)
I usually don't ride between, roughly, mid-November to mid-February. My winterization: top off the fuel tank. Cover the bike. Done. So far, she's always come alive immediately when I got her out on the first sunny and dry day. ^^ Then again, I live in Germany. xD Anyway, I enjoy your channel very much, so keep up the good work. : )

You need to use ACF-50 for corrosion protection. It's a miracle fluid.

Hi FortNine, I will go abroad for 3 years and leave my Harley in my home country. I will come once a year to my home country to change the oil. Do I need to run the motorcycle in neutral once a month for 1-2 minutes by the help of a friend? Or we don’t need it after I did the winterization as you did?

Trump jokes are okay when they're clever and not too condescending to one side or the other. It's a fine art, but this one was done reasonably well.

Holy crap, might as well put the bike in a sterilized chamber that you only enter with a full body vaccum sealed suite.

You just butchered the pronunciation of carnaúba that I took a couple seconds to understand what you were saying even though I am Brazilian myself. But I don't judge, I know foreign words can suck.

Any advice appreciated! My DRZ400SM runs inner tubes inside the Michelin Pilot Power 2CTs. Is it okay to inflate to the max tire PSI on the sidewall? I'm worried about over-inflating the inner tubes..

MrStitty26 (1 year ago)
Not a comment about this video but a question from a novice bike guy I'm just about to buy my first bike just a 125 to get used to been on the road and driving a bike, I have been looking at brand chines and Indian bikes such a the um renegade, keeway superlight and the hyosung all cruiser type bikes. Are they any good or is it true what a lot of people say and that Chinese bikes are poorly made and I should stay away from them.

Stimpy's Garage (1 year ago)
In Phoenix, Arizona, winterization is actually summerization. We ride all winter long and have to garage it all through mid-summer. Riding with a helmet and gear in 115F weather? Ain't no one got no time for that. So all this advice goes entirely differently for us. We don't worry about moisture; Phoenix summers are dry. We do need fuel stabilizer, and, what the hell, waxing the plastics is always nice but totally unnecessary. I think that's it for us, yes?

I'd kill for a proper winter like they get in Canada. The coldest it gets in Barcelona is around 10C/50F, and as a born-and-bred Northern Brit, I don't feel right without the cold.

Awesome video man, Informative and thorough. One question tho I'm looking at buying the same Cabinets are those the Newage bold 3.0 or the heavier duty Pros? How do you like them?
FortNine (1 year ago)
"Pro version - tell them to go big or go home." This according to my father, whose garage I'm borrowing to film in at the moment haha. He likes the cabinets a lot. Apparently they came packed tight on a little pallet and weighed a freaking tonne. Get someone to help you when they arrive! ~RF9

I love down to earth your videos are. You dont try to sell us the most expensive gizmo. You just try to sell us what works or dont try to sell us anything at all with nice hacks.

Mr Ryan F9, from one tall lanky SOB to another, which textile pants can you recommend for wet coast dual sporting and commuting? The Scorpion Yosemites currently have my eye, but I'm hesitant the inseam length will be too short.

best way to winterize a bike is to ride it. That's what winter gear is for.

Just do what I do and live in Western Australia. Perth only hits freezing maybe once a year.
