Hey, i just have a few questions about storing my 2005 R6 in my garage during a cold iowa winter. I was wondering if my bike already has anti-freeze in it or if i need to put it in? If it already has ani-freeze in it do i need to do anything to it? Do u need to do anything to other fluids besides fuel stabilizer? Thanks

Check the anti-freeze percentage by using a hydrometer.

It will tell you how much protection you have by saying "32 F,"25 f" ...etc...

Change your oil before you store it for a long time.

P.S. A hydrometer is really cheap. I think you can get one for 99 cents at wal mart or an auto parts store.

What temperature would be best for storing it in my garage. And do i just dip the mometer in the anti-freeze thats in the bike from the factory to get a reading.

The hydrometer is like an eye dropper with a few balls that'll float and sink to tell you how strong your mixture is. Just suck up some antifreeze with it and it will have readings to tell you the ratio of your mixture.

If you have a heated garage any temp should do. I don't have a heated garage and I never had any problems.
