Now that Winter is coming and you're puting the bike 'up' for the season you may want to remove your air filter and start it up. As it's running shut off the petcock and let it run out of gas....when it's in it's last 'sputterings' fog the carb intake with WD40. As the revs go up shut off the ignition but continue spraying the WD40 for a few seconds. Close the choke and put the air cleaner back on. This way you have run the ethanol mix out of the carb (very destructive if it sits in your carb) and vapor-proofed your engine. Don't forget to put your trickle charger on the battery. If you're 'anal' jack the bike up to get the tires off the floor to avoid flat spots.....wax the chrome and don't remove the coating until Spring.
