Getting ready to take your motorcycle out of storage? Look for tips on getting your bike road-ready for the spring!

Get your motorcycle road ready tip #1: Open the filler cap and look for gunk. If the fuel is questionable, it may be a good idea to drain the tank, fuel lines and carburetor.

Get your motorcycle road ready tip #2: Before starting your bike, remove the spark plugs and pour two tablespoons of oil into the spark plug ports to lubricate the top portion of the cylinder walls.

Get your motorcycle road ready tip #3: Oil degrades in the off-season – now is a great time to change it to keep your engine in shape.

Get your motorcycle road ready tip #4: Check your clutch, brake and coolant levels and top off any that need it.

Get your motorcycle road ready tip #5: Look over your suspension and tires. Check your tires for excessive wear, stress marks, cracks or flat spots.
