Winter storage of new bike
I picked up a new 2012 V-Strom 650 about a month ago and due to a variety of reasons, I've not yet been able to accumulate 600 miles so I could get the first servicing done before I take the bike off the road for the winter. The temperatures at night are already down in the 20s and only getting up to the upper 30s to 40 during the day so I'm not riding it to work due to the below freezing morning temps. Rain is one thing, ice is something I avoid.
Is there any reason I can't just clean the bike, fill the tank with no ethanol gas, put in the correct amount of Stabil, hook up the batter maintainer, put it up on stands, put the cover on it and tuck it away in the corner of the attached garage and worry about the 600 mile service in the spring? My main concern is the oil. I've only put 500 miles on the bike so far but I don't know if there's anything special about the oil that's in the bike for the break-in period that'd make it unwise to leave it in there until March or so. I typically like to change the oil after my last ride of the fall just in case.
