Default Re: Bike storage

I don't know how it woud work with a bike engine. Same principle so it shouldn't be much different. We used to use automatic transmission fluid to 'pickle' 2 and 4 stroke model airplane engines for long term storage. It kept the engine from gumming up due to coagulation of oil and protected the aluminum parts. Pour a little down the spark plug hole and down the carburetor, rotate the crankshaft a few times then forget about it. Always worked for me.
