MOTORCYCLE CARE AND STORAGE
Lubricate all control cables and the pivoting points of all levers and pedals as well as of the sidestand/ centerstand.
Check and, if necessary, correct the tire air pressure, and then lift the motorcycle so that both of its wheels are off the ground. Alterna- tively, turn the wheels a little every month in order to prevent the tires from becoming degraded in one spot.
Cover the muffler outlets with plas- tic bags to prevent moisture from entering them.
Remove the battery and fully charge it. Store it in a cool, dry place and charge it once a month. Do not store the battery in an ex- cessively cold or warm place (less than 0 °C or more than 30 °C). For more information on storing the battery, see page 6-29.
NOTE: Make any necessary repairs before
storing the motorcycle.
