Re: Leaving MB outside????
You can add a little sealer under the mag cover and in the hole where the wires come out to keep it dry. Cut a slot shape into a large plastic tumbler as a carb cover, maybe?
But I would also think that theft or vandalism will be a big concern, especially if you're putting the bike in the same place all the time, on a college campus, where drunks roam at all hours. A good lock and a BBQ grill cover should be high priorities.
