Starting Fluid
My mechanic informed me this summer after having so much work done to the bike that the best thing for it is use/running. He told me that if it was his bike, he would start it and run it at least once a week throughout the winter for a minimum of 20 minutes, (on top of the gas treatment, battery tender etc..) I was thinking more like twice a month. There are times when the temps will rise and I like to get on the bike and putt through town just to "scratch the itch" so to speak. In January, February when we reach 30-40 degrees once in a while, it's the perfect opportunity to start the old gal up and ride for a while, but it's just so darn hart to start. I thought maybe just a small dose of starting fluid would help the starting process and would help prevent the drainage of the battery as well as all the wear and tear on the starter.

Thanks for all the input.
