Just wanted to know how you guys winterize your bikes. I have engine ice in my bike, do I need to flush that for winter or not?

Thanks!

Nope. Engine Ice is anti-freeze and is good down to -26F.

I have a basement so I just wheel my bikes that I wont be riding over the winter inside. I still go ahead and fill the gas tank all the way up to eliminate air in there and drain the carb bowls on my Ninja 250. Ill usually go ahead and drain the oil and replace it with fresh oil, as well. In the spring, I will go ahead and replace the Water Wetter/water in the cooling system (I do this every year). Doing the WW might be a little bit of overkill but it helps me sleep easier.
