Hello, I'm new to the thread, I'm looking after an '09 250r. (Who isn't?)
But my question; what is "Proper Storage as defined in your Kawasaki owner's manual"? The Kawasaki warranty says that it will not cover any defects resulting from "Improper storage"

oh shit, that doesn't sound good. What happened????
I don't think anything happened; he's just wondering what they mean by improper storage.

I think they mean they will not fix any issues caused by leaving old gas in the tank, not covering the bike in bad weather, etc.

Well... does anyone have a "Kawasaki owner's manual"? and if so, can he/she read what it defines as "proper storage"

Basically you have to:

Empty the fuel system
Reduce tire pressure by 20%
Raise both wheels off the ground to prevent flat spots on the tires (a set of stands is a good investment)
Spray oil on all unpainted metal surfaces to prevent rusting
Lubricate the chain and cables
Remove and store the battery on a trickle-charger
Tie a plastic bag over the muffler(s) to keep condensation from forming
Cover it

probably because we ride year round in a tropical environment, and we don't have mandatory inspections like almost every other state does.
