Finally got the bike

Hey guys, i finally got a bike today, its a black 09' 250R. Was the only color that was available and the last one at the dealer so i think i was lucky. Too bad here in NY its getting cold already so im gonna put it away.

I need to winterize it but im not sure that i know all that needs to be done.
Here's a list of what i think needs to be done:
- Putting the bike on stands
- Disconnecting battery (im borrowing a friends garage and wont always have access to it so ill leave it there until spring)
- Stabilizer in the gasoline
- Cover to keep the dust off

- what about the fluids? ive read that i should drain it and some say i wouldnt need to.





thanks for input

That seems good enough, I've no idea what else you could do to "winterize" it (I live in Los Angeles, I don't need to do that stuff).

Congrats on getting the bike, I hope you didn't pay out of your ass for it like some people have.

If you feel like you've outgrown your 250, you've probably outgrown your helmet too.

Yeah, that's around the same price they were giving me.

Sorry you bought it just to store it for the winter, but I guess that's how it goes up north.

Hey I got the red 08, and I'm in NY too. People are saying to get the trickle cell for the battery. However I never used one. I had access so I rode and started it every so often. I also topped off the gas tank so it wont rust inside. Where in NY are you?
