    GPR1300r storage processes

    Hi All,

    after a decent amount of reading i have worked out it is very difficult to fog the engine of a GP1300r. Upon reading the owners manual they recommend to put 1 tablespoon of 2 stroke engine oil directly into each cylinder. Can somebody please explain how this is meant to be done:

    1. Remove all 3 spark plugs
    2. Pour in 1 tablespoon of oil per cylinder
    3. Crank engine with spark plugs out or in? Should the leads be on or off the plugs when cranking?

    I assume if the leads are on the oil will be burnt so defeating the purpose?

    Be great if someone can explain this in a step by step process.

    Thanks for your help

    Crank it without the plugs in. Just put a rag over the holes to avoid any spray that may come out. I just crank it over for a couple of seconds. I usually do it a couple of times just to be sure.

    thanks h2jim, when you have the plugs out of the head do you leave the plugs inside the leads or take them out when you are cranking?

    Hello handyandy28, it is really pretty simple: 1. Remove all plug wires from plugs set them off to the side so that they will not ground to head. 2. Take all 3 plugs out 3. Spray fogging oil using the plastic tube into each plug hole. You really can't get to much in. 4. Bump the starter a few times, this will work the fogging oil down in cyl. 4. Then spray a little more in each ... replace the plugs 5. Re-attach the plug wires 6. Disconnect battery, store inside on work bench.

    Perfect thanks for clearing that up monster. The manual wasn't that clear and didn't want to do anything wrong or out of order.

    Too many people don't fog there engines for storage..
    Just picked up a beautiful gp1300r with 20 original hrs and garage kept.
    Motor is locked tight due to lack of storage maintenance..
    Fun fun..

    No fogging oil sprayed through the carb/throttle body air intakes into the crank cases?

    Just depending on some dribbling down from the combustion chambers?

    If you ride on a regular weekly basis there is no need to fog the engine.
    Only when its going to sit for an extended time.
