Hey Guys

Just purchased my first bike, 2006 r6- Raven

It is being stored in A insulated room for the winter.. Its not the warmest. I have added Fuel Stabalizer and ran it through for 5-10 mins. I also removed the battery and have it in my house now. Is this a decent storage for the bike?

I would appreciate any tips.

I tried uploading some pictures but the file sizes are to large

Thanks
-Kurt

Bonjour!

That should be fine. If u have stands, but the bike on then so u don't get flat spots in the tires.
Also put the battery on a battery tender

keep your r6 in storage and get a different, less powerful, bike to learn on. otherwise, you'll have a very difficult time learning to ride properly...

Thanks for the welcome. S3aturnR- I respect that, I have Ridden Bikes before, Just never owned. Not saying Im a confident driver. I will be taking it easy on the side roads here. Not high traffic.
