Summer prep

Hi all, I recently purchased a 2015 switchback 600, had it 2 weeks before all the snow started melting away!! And only managed to put on 250km!!! ..... Can't wait till next winter!!!!

Anyways, looking for any info or advice for what I should do to my seld to get it ready for storage for the summer. I plan on keeping it stored in a non insulated shed..

This is the first sled I have ever owned so appreciate any and all information!

Lift the back of the sled so track is off the ground. Put some fuel stabilizer in gas tank at recommended rate and run for a few minutes so it can get pulled into fuel pump and injectors. Grease wherever there are grease nipples. Fill the fuel tank to the top to limit moisture condensation in tank from humidity in the summer. Plan on draining all fuel from the tank before next winter and filling with fresh fuel at the time. You can fog the engine too to help protect the crankshaft from rusting.
Pretty good write up here

The older I get the better I was; In fact now that I think about it I am a legend.
