    • Is it a breathable tarp? Otherwise moisture with start the rust bug

    • I have to ask, (new to the motorcycle scene) Why shut the gas off and run the fuel lines dry.

    • Drew Gregory it's to prevent the carbs from gumming up if it sits dry there's nothing to go bad

    • Not a bad thought. Might do that tomorrow

    • As long as there is stab-el in the gas it won't gum up the carbs but it your choice

    • Yea i put that in with fresh gas

    • Non ethanol fuel has also helps, it's the ethanol fuel that gums up the carbs

    • Maybe put it up on blocks, to avoid resting patches on your tires from resting over a prolong period of time?

    • I would of brought the bike inside the house,I'm looking at two right now

    • i only had enough room for one inside and its getting tore down for paint ,,and im not worried about the tires got a new set of dunlops ready to go on the shadow come spring thx for the input everyone
