The wet season is upon us! While we love riding in the rain, we also understand some folks just want to wait for sunny days again. You are in luck, we are now able to store your motorcycles and scooters in our warehouse! They will be well taken care of including winterization, trickle charging, and getting your ride ready for spring. Save some room in your garage this winter and let us store your bike!
Come to the shop with a bike in good condition, a full tank of gas, proof of insurance, a bike cover (if you have one), a good battery, and the keys. Before we winterize your bike, we will top off your gas tank (for $1/gallon over local prices), test your battery (if weak, it needs to be replaced) and test drive the bike. Next we will winterize your bike and store it. Then in spring we will get it ready to ride again. Detail as follows:
Adding stabilizer to the gas
Installing a pigtail lead and attach it to a battery tender
Drain gas from the float bowl in the carburetor(s) if it’s not fuel injected.
Keeping your bike dry and safe
Keeping your battery charged with a trickle charger
Turning the front and rear tires once every two weeks
Maintain proper air pressure in the tires
Cover the bike to reduce dust
Top off oil and coolant and check tire pressure
Prepayment is required. Price includes winterization, storage, and ready-for-the-road service:
$100 per Month
Access during storage
If you want to ride on a sunny day and return it to storage, give us two days’ notice & we’ll pull the bike out, get it ready-for-the-road, and put stabilizer in the tank upon your return.
Routine service is generally recommended every 2,500 miles or annually, whichever is first. This covers an oil change, topping off other fluids, new spark plug, checking the idle, brakes and cables. Consider this additional service for any brand we carry if service is due while your bike is in storage. We will be happy to schedule the service when you drop you scooter or motorcycle off!
Add Routine Service
For 50 cc $99, for all other scooters $149 for 1st service & $129 thereafter, $390 for Ural.
