The monsoon's are bad for our bikes. I have managed to find a semi covered area where I park my bike under a cover. I make sure it is cleaned everyday (if it's not raining), start it everyday, let it idle till its normal temp. and switch it off. I make sure I ride it atleast 2-3 times a week. The worse thing is not using it.

I then cover the exhausts with plastic bags to keeps any water out. I spray all metal parts with WD40 and wipe and leave it on. Also spray WD40 on all switches and cables as well as in the spark plug caps. This keeps off the rust and ensures things don't get jammed up.

If you do not use the bike for long, disconnect the battery and keep it on a trickle charge if possible. Also ensure that you pump the brakes a few times regularly to keep the rubber seals from sticking. Make sure you turn the wheels as well, as keeping them in one spot will cause the metal threads to bend and also your chain to get a tight spot.

Dipen, here is a pic on which Mr. Rudra has worked his magic!! Haven't managed any other pics except what you see on the Alibagh thread.

Phenomenal job Rudra!!! One of the best ones ive seen....

Rtech, i see you are taking severe precautions, but isnt it also true that in addition to letting the bike idle and warm up every so often, you should also occasionally take it on a long ride so that it really heats up the silencers and gets all the trapped & evil moisture out of there ? (*hint hint* :P )

Absolutely! that's why i said "I make sure I ride it atleast 2-3 times a week. The worse thing is not using it. "

Sorry, didn't get the hint as I'm extremely stupid when it comes to these things

BTW, I didn't know you rode bikes anyways?

@rtech where did u get wd40 i looked in vashi but could not find it most people didnt even know what i was talking about and i hate the colour of the anti rust coatings

on a sidenote i was smoked yesterday by a 150(?)gsx-R at the begening of palm beach, i thought it was a fake because the rider was not wearing a helmet.
