I know that no one wants to hear this but I think my Season here in Canada will Be over in about a month. They are already talking snow in forcasts. that means lots of gravel on the roads. So I thought It is about time I start figuring out how to winterize my 04 R6. Does any one have any tips, any information will be more than what I am aware of.

I just moved from Buffalo, NY to Southern California, that basically took care of the issue for me! But to answer your question somewhat, I just put Sta-Bil gas stabilizer in the tank and put a piece off wood under the wheels, so they are off the concrete. Pull the battery and put a cover over the bike.
There some more complex stuff such has pulling the spark plugs and putting a drop or two of oil and reinstallign them to prevent corrosion, but I never bothered with all that and never had any problems.
