Winter maintenance

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what some of you guys do to your bikes when the snow starts to fly? I have an '11 CRF 450 with just over 50 hours showing on the ticker. Local track is having practice this weekend (usually motocross season is over at the end of October in NY, but the mild fall is pushing riding season nearly into December!) After this ride I plan on taking all the plastic off and giving it a good washing, and putting it in the basement until my Florida trip in February. My to do list before that inculdes:

Top End

Clutch and Throttle cables

New clutch fibers, springs, and steels (6 spring already installed)

repack exhaust (hasn't been done yet :lol:)

Rebuild suspension

Grease bearings

What's your thoughts on replacing the valves, springs and keepers while I'm in there? Cam chain? Anything else? Bike is stricly ridden for motocross, but I'm good about filter and oil changes.

What are you're winter rituals? Gotta have something to get you threw these short, grey days!
