Motorcycle Storage. Keep your motorcycle in first class condition when you place it into storage (or if not in use for any long period of time). These simple steps to help you ensure your bike or scooter is properly protected. Motorcycle Storage.

  1. Apply a penetrating oil spray to all exposed metallic surfaces of the machine, except, of course, the working surfaces of brake discs, control levers and footrests. The film of protective chemicals left behind slows down corrosion, but small regular doses are better than one drenching.
  2. Regularly inspect and keep brake components clear of a grit and grime build up. Cold and wet conditions promote the collection of grime, which make brake components seize up if neglected. Motorcycle storage.
  3. Clean individual components where muck and water tend to collect even more frequently than the rest of the machine. The engine and radiator, plus the shock absorber linkages need special attention, as this is where road dirt thrown up from the tyres pepper the machine.
  4. Ensure that all electrical connectors receive a dose of penetrating oil before placing your bike into motorcycle storage, especially on 'naked' machines, where there are more exposed components than fully faired models.
  5. Try to wash the salt and traffic film from the machine after each ride (first cold then warm). If you use a pressure washer, be careful to avoid exposed bearings and brake callipers. During the cold and wet winter season it's also best to wipe your machine dry after washing, and place in motorcycle storage shed or facility
  6. Pay special attention to the tyres in winter, as they have to work harder in cold and wet conditions. Over inflation is as bad as under inflation, reducing grip levels and making for a harsh ride. Winter tyres are a good option for both motorcycles or scooters when temperatures are consistently below 7 C. Motorcycle storage
  7. Keep the drive chain well lubricated, as rust attacks the exposed surfaces of the hardened steel at the first opportunity. Again, little and often beats one big application, then weeks of neglect.
  8. Make sure all pivot points on the bike are well lubricated with grease, with footpeg pivots needing special attention, as road salt and dirt collect there from the soles of your boots. Motorcycle storage.
  9. Act at the first sign of corrosion, to prevent its further spread, and make sure you inspect behind panels and fairings. Rusty or furred-up fairing fasteners, being mounted on or embedded in brittle ABS or plastic, cannot simply be forced to separate like engine or chassis fasteners, or you run a strong risk of breaking the plastic.

If these guides are maintained there should be a smile on your face come the summer monthes. Riding out of your motorcycle storage shed/facility with the wind in your hair.

Total Motorcycle - Outside a single white snowflake falls... Disbelief falls on your face as another snowflake falls... Then you realize, another riding year over and it's time to put the bike away for the winter.
