    In my opinion you have two options.

    Option 1: Drain the gas tank & carbs

    Option 2: Fill the gas tank up and us Sta-bil fuel stabilizer.

    I always use option number 1 because I premix and have to run a minimum of 92 octane.

    Winterize? Here in Tampa, we just rode last weekend. Go with the fuel stabilizer.

    Ok, now you guys got me scared. This is the first winterization that I've done since adding the Pro Tec Rec head, which is 150psi. I filled the gas tank, as usual, with 93 octane. Added Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer. Will the gas lose octane over the winter? Obviously it wasn't as much of a concern in prior years, without the 150 psi head. My plan was to richen the high speed screws a little for the first ride in the spring. Am I gonna be alright? Someone please alleviate my fears.

    I always drain the fuel and refill her before the first ride!

    See the link below, it says the new and improved formula prevents octane loss.
