there are a few threads on this.. just pick one. Best to store the bike with a FULL TANK of fuel as well. Condensation forms in a tank not full as temps go up and down during the day, the water collects at the bottom. Fuel today with ethanol is not as friendly with water as gas years ago was. You need to run the bike a good while to get the fuel stabil through the fuel system as well.. a few minutes of idle or even blipping the throttle is not enough.

My last few tanks of the year all have Stabil in them, just to make sure it's in the entire system.

Re: Fuel stabilizer

Bro, $3. Startron shooter. I sell winterization kits and the startron little shooter bottle does 6 gallons. Don't wind up with a bottle on your shelf of shit you won't use but once a year.

http://mystarbrite.com/startron/

I mean, shit, the website even says it increases power. LOLOLOL

This is all they use at the marina I live near. They go through SHELVES of it man. My boat has been AWESOME every year when we start it up for the first time after it's stored for winter. And we had to rebuild all 3 carbs on it. This stuff has been working so well as an ethanol treatment too, it's been 3 years now and the boat straight up rips for a party boat with a small outboard. It gets out of a dig like no other now!!

Re: Fuel stabilizer

whatever is your favorite stuff, just keep the tank full if it really is going to sit a good while..

Prig, Stabil and Sea Foam. I use whatever is on sale and I've never had a problem with either.

Re: Fuel stabilizer

Marvel Mystery oil here. Used it on fourwheelers, tractors, lawnmowers, dirtbikes, weedeaters, blowers, and of course, my R6.

You can cycle it through the fuel and add it to the oil, though I'd follow the instructions both ways.

+1 on storing with a full tank.
