Re: Bike storage
Cover it well and the temps won't hurt it. If you don't plan to ride for a month or so, drain ALL the fuel (including the float bowl) and squirt some oil in the spark plug hole before storage.
You can also use a gas stabilizer like Sta-Bil for long term protection from gas going bad.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
