TIPS TO PREPARE YOUR MOTORCYCLE FOR LONG TERM STORAGE

 

At Pink Hippo, we take great pride in caring for our customers’ belongings. To ensure your bike is in tip-top shape when you return, we advise that you follow a few simple steps before moving it into storage. 

Step 1: Drain fuel and oil 

Draining your carburettor is one of the easiest and most important ways to keep your bike in good shape when it’s off the road. This will ensure all moisture and contaminants are removed, preventing clogs later down the line. 

Step 2: Give it a good clean 

Dirt and dust can damage the paint and metal on your bike if not removed. With a sufficient wash and dry before storage, your bike will be as good as new when you return. 

Step 3: Lift up 

Sitting your bike on a surface to keep the tyres off a solid floor will ease the load on the body and minimise flat spots in your tyres. An old carpet or even cardboard boxes will do the trick. 

Step 4: Remember to rotate 

It is also recommended to rotate the wheels every few weeks while the bike is in storage to equalise the wear. This is super easy at Pink Hippo, as you can easily access your unit 24-hours a day at no extra cost. 

Step 5: Detach the battery 

For extra safety, it’s a good idea to detach the battery. A maintenance charger is simple to use and will keep the battery charged throughout the winter without causing any damage.
