New guy (please bear with me)

Read the previous posts I could find and went looking for supplies to winterize the 87 Aspencade.

Got a NAPA oil filter but have a question about the oil.

:waving:1. Has anyone used Mystik synthetic blend before ?

Also can't find 75W80 oil for the final drive. Have found 75W90.

:waving:2. Is this too thick ?

Also got Prestone Extended Life antifreeze.

Any other suggestions besides covering the end of the Mufflers to prevent the mice from staying warm ?

I did a search of the site for "winterizing" and this is one of many threads that came up. Winterizing

Stay away from silicate based antifreeze. Bad on aluminum engines and water pumps.

I hear Prestone is notorious about using that, however, they may have changed since.

The Prestone Extended life is Silacate free.
I got that from a different thread and that's why I picked it up.
I read the bottle and it says Silicate free.
Thanks for the concern.

Prestone Extended life 50/150 is good stuff, I've posted the data on various antifreeze types that are silicate free several times. 75W90 gear oil will be fine, it's not all that critical unless you're planning to ride in subzero weather.

top the gas tank off, use seafoam(fuel stabilizer) in it a little heavier than recommended, mice can get into the air intake too, treat the seat with a leather oil and cover it, put the bike on the center stand, and jack up the front a bit to take the pressure off the front tire, remove the battery and put it on a float charger, pull the plugs and spray some WD40 or carb cleaner/solvent? and then some oil in there before you start it up in the spring..

Put a post in the For Sale/Wanted forum, williamedew. No one will see it here.
