    Winter storage? Stands?


    Although I read this forum just about every day, I rarely post. My question is about winter storage, I have two options, non-heated garage, or shed. I am thinking of going with the shed, since it's right out back and I can keep an eye on things. She's out there now, full tank, stabil added. My question is this, what should I do about the tires? Would putting it up on stands be enough to keep them from getting flat spots and dryrotting, or should I take them off and put them inside? They are brand new pilot powers btw. Also, does anyone know of any place with good deals on stands, because i'd def like to get it off the tires asap. It's a 99 CBR F4.

    Thanks in advance and sorry for the book.

    Nick

    I added Sta-Bil, and just bought a Deltran Battery Tender Pro, and Pitbull stands (front and rear). The stands were free shipping if i ordered them together over the phone.

    Battery tender is on the xmas list, if I don't get it I will replace the battery in the spring, she could probably use a new one anyway...

    pretty much everyone will recomment pitbull or woodcraft stands here. i hear the best combo is pitbull rear, and woodcraft front. but i chose pitbull front and rear because i got free shipping. you'd be fine just putting plywood under your tires. the other bikes where mine is stored dont have stands.
