Make sure keep your bike clean every alternate day, may be it does not sound logical to clean something that won’t use for next 2-3 days, but make exemption for your motorcycle. Impurities like mud, dust and dirt corrode your bike’s paint. In fact, we strongly suggest you to give her a good polish with wax to avoid damage.
3. Take extra care of your exhaust
Many of you must have noticed that exhaust are the first one to get corroded, the reason is simple, just like we mentioned earlier that the cold air is the prime reason to create moisture. To safeguard them, you should spay light oils at drain holes and muffler ends. Put a plug at the opening of the exhaust to keep it safe from the moisture.
4. Keep bike’s tyres inflated
Chemistry 101- Air gets condense as it gets cooler, the thing apply to air in tyres. Keep an eye on your bike’s tyres make sure you keep them inflated at required pressure. The second problem bikers usually face are flat spot (uneven wear) of tyres, to avoid it just make remember to put your bike on center stand and rotate its tyres after 7-10 days.
5. Keep it covered
Last but not the least, buy a good quality bike cover, it will help you keep dust and dirt off the bike. It will also help you to keep the moisture out. If you don’t have a garage or a storing place make sure to cover it and tie it down properly. Though, it is always better if you are storing it inside.
