How to winterize a GL1500

Postby Morgul » Sat Oct 09, 2010 10:16 am



I'm putting my bike away for the winter from about Thanksgiving to the middle of March. What do I need to do beside fill up the tank and add stabilizer? Does the oil need to be stabilized or drained? I know the battery should come out and go on a trickle charge. Anything else?

I wrote this for my 1100, but everything applies to the 1500 as well: Winter Storage Guide
