Winter Storage Question...
Had a great ride yesterday with temperatures uncommonly high for this time of year (69 degrees). Rode up to Xenia, OH to see my brother in law whose son is due to return for awhile from Afghanistan (Army-Fort Campbell). Anyway, had a great ride through some back roads, covered bridges, John Bryan State Park and Young's Jersey dairy. Anyway, I got home and cleaned the bike all up, changed the oil, filled the tank, and added some stabil. Well I just read this Winter Storage info in the Vulcan Verses,
"26.10.3. Change the oil & filter, check air filter, brake fluid. Run some Stabil or Seafoam in the gas till you can smell it a bit in the exhaust. This will help to reduce "varnish" in the carb and fuel lines. Fill tank to top.
Start engine and turn off gas and let the carb run out to empty. This will lessen chance of varnish in the bowl."
Not sure how to turn the gas off on my 86 VN750? It can't be "ON" or "RES" so is it the "PRI" setting? I've used that when the bike sits for awhile to prime the gas in order to make it easier to start. Help! Thanks!
