    Is Fogging oil on the pistons and cylinder walls necessary while I wait for parts?

    I am in the process of trying to learn how to work on my first four stroke...a vx110. I have the head pulled off exposing the pistons and cylinders. While I study my manual and ask questions over the next couple weeks is it a good idea to either use fogging oil or something on the cylinders and pistons? It will be stored in my garage down here in Houston Texas but with the moist days of winter upon us I didn't know if I needed to treat these exposed surfaces while I wait 2 or 3 weeks to fix this thing.

    You can get a can of fogging oil spray (stabil is one brand) at any auto parts store---works way better than WD
