Injection bikes/Winter

Having bought my first injection bike this year, are there anything i particular that will need to be done when I put it away for winter with regards to fuel? (not that I'm putting it away just yet, of course!)

Thanks, Jay

why not just ride it?

What's wrong with the cold? just get some decent kit...

agree may not be great if it's absolutely pissing down or snowing (tube is okay on snowy/icy days, but even they have probelms - can't see how snow gets in tunnels but then I'm not one of Bob Crowe's gang with haven't had a strike for a while so lets find something else to have a day off for attitude) but otherwise.. actually find I concentrate more in the wet as surfaces and lines more important, makes me better in the dry ...

Keep riding, that's what bikes are for.... did all of my DAS and test in torrential rain, then realised how great it was on a dry day...

well I ride mine all year round but things to do is use a cable tie to hold the clutch in so it does not bond over fill the tank as you can get condensation in a half filled tank.start it every week and warm it up if you can. disconnect the battery if its going to be sitting a while and if its outside then bring the battery into the house as extreme cold can kill battery cells
