I will be getting my SW ready for winter soon. What recommendations should I follow to prep my SW for short term storage? I will ride as long as the snow stays away. But that doesn't last forever. swing

Put it on the center stand hook it up to a trickle charger.

Thank you.
Should I add anything to the fuel like Marvel Oil?

I fill the gas tank up and add Seafoam then run it for five minutes or so to get into the system. Also an oil change is a good idea before winter storage. I'll also pull the battery out and bring it inside and put it on a battery tender. It gets mighty cold up here during the winter. And too long.

I do the following:
1. Wash and clean
2. Change the oil
3. Add stabilize in freash fuel, make sure the tank is full to avoid tank corrosion
4. Connect a trickle charger to the battery
5. Cover it and put a cardboard under
6. Close all the openings to avoid rodents crawling in (exhaust pipe, air intake)
7. Optional. Stabilize could also be sprayed into spark plug openings.

I add stabilizer to a full tank and run it about 5 minutes to make sure it is fully mixed with the fuel. I also remove the battery and put it on a Battery tender inside the house. Then I stuff a rag into the exhaust pipe to avoid finding a chipmunk nest in the spring. Finally I just put a motorcycle cover over it and then dream about the coming Spring. I don't know where Avon, OH is, but if you have to leave the bike stored for more than 8 weeks or so for the winter, you risk the fuel going bad and giving you trouble next Spring if you don't use something to stabilize the fuel. I've never used SeaFoam but have used Stabil for the last 15 years or so with no trouble whatsoever when starting up the bike after 3 to 4 months of inactivity.
