I dont have a bike. But if i did, and I done nothing else. I'd spray it with
WD40.
And remember to clean it all off before I took it out again :).

So you would spray it with wd40 and then park it up or when taking it out?

also which parts do you recomend spraying

Thanks

Well I'd spray it when I park it up, to give the metal (engine wheels, bars etc)parts some protection against the rust. Even the frame & maybe some paint work if it's just a few months. But I'd be careful not to get any on the brake pads, and make sure it was all polished off again before starting it up. Especially the exhaust.
But I dont have a bike ;)

I think you should be turning it over a lest once a month, and dip the clutch aswell just to make sure it is not starting to sieze up

Thanks for the tips guys, look like i'll have to charge up the battery as well now, (the alarm has drained the battery).
