  • Motorcycle Storage

    I am storing my 2001 Roadstar for 6 months in a high heat area. Bike will be covered and stored inside, the question I have is, Should I shut off the fuel to my carbs and let them run out of gas, or just shut the fuel off and leave the fuel in the carbs?

    Either one will work for you in a heated dry storage, if you leave fuel in use non ethanol gas with stabil or something similar.

      On a related note... only ethanol free I can find in my area is 91 octane. 91 isn't needed for our bike, but does it do any harm? Assuming the benefit of ethanol free outweighs any harm of a single tank of 91 octane.

        I use it as my garage fluctuates from 40 to 60 degrees in winter, if you have no condensation issues possible you should be ok with reg. and stabil.

        Thanks, Mort. Condensation is a possibility, so I'll stick with a last tank of ethanol free 91 and Stabil.

      Full tank of gas with couple ounces of stabil... Ride 5 miles to mix.. Put in storage and let idle while you shut off your petcock and let bike die. Put battery on tender and should be all set. For 6 months with stabil I wouldn't bother draining the bowl
