I think I will pick up a fuel filter with an on off valve, that will help keep crap out of my carb and allow me to run the carb dry for winter storage. Thank you for the great suggestion.

I don't drain the carb for winter storage. I fill the tank with fresh gas add about a half a can of seafoam and then take it out for an 8-10 mile ride to
circulate the stabilized fuel thru the carb.

Change oil / filter. Drain / flush / refill coolant. Add Sta-Bil to a full tank...drain the carb bowl..remove plugs and add a squirt of storage spray- turn engine over with plugs grounded against the cylinders..replace plugs. Remove battery and / or connect to battery tender. I disconnect the fuel line just in case the petcock goes bad...I wrap a blanket round the motor...cover the bike and kiss it goodnight til April.........

Default Winter Storage

After the full tank with Seafoam/Stabil routine. I plug the tailpipe to keep critters from making a home, filling your exhaust with insulation crap to keep them warm. Install the battery tender, cover and let the bike sleep till late March. Ride smart and ride safe always.
