Gold Eagle Sta-Bil Ethanol Treatment

STA-BIL Ethanol Treatment

Fuel System

We recommend the use of a fuel stabilizer to keep your gas fresh and to protect your carbs and gas tank from corrosion and residue deposits. STA-BIL Ethanol Treatment (#STA-ETH-32) has been reformulated to offer double corrosion protection as well as protection from the Ethanol additive in gasoline. Fill your tank and add stabilizer using the directions on the bottle. Run the engine for a few minutes to circulate the mixture in to the carbs. Fuel injectors are less affected but still greatly benefit from this additive. Get the big bottle!! It works great in Lawnmowers, Jet Ski’s and Snowmobiles also.

Tires

Tires are affected by heat, sunlight and dampness, as well as ozone, which is given off by electric motors. Keep your bike out of direct sunlight and away from electric motors such as refrigerators, freezers, etc. Store your bike with the tires fully inflated in a cool dry place. Use a motorcycle stand to keep weight off the tires.

The easiest way to prolong battery life is to keep it fully charged. We recommend the Bike Master 365TD (#15-0917) which works well on all batteries including the new TruGel Batteries. We also carry the Deltran Battery Tender and YUASA chargers. All of these chargers can be left plugged in indefinitely and will self regulate to keep the battery charged. USE CAUTION!!!! Follow the manufacturers instructions when working with your battery.

Lubrication

During regular use, your engine oil becomes acidic from combustion. Prior to storage we recommend that you change your oil and filter, and run the engine for a few minutes to circulate the new oil. You may want to change it again in the spring as condensation can form in your engine during the cold weather. It is also a good idea to apply a liberal coating of lubricant to your chain. Cables, lever pivots, linkages, etc. can be protected against corrosion using Maxima Multi Purpose Penetrant Lube.

General

It is a good idea to cover your motorcycle during storage. We carry the COVERMAX line of covers as well as covers by DOWCO. Also, a good washing followed by a liberal coating of wax or polish is an excellent way to protect your investment during the winter months. Products from S-100 or Original Bike Spirits work very well.

  4. Thank you for this post, very useful information.
    Now is the time for me to start looking into storing my bike. Here in northern Ohio, we don’t get many chances to ride during the Fall/Winter.
