Off-season or extended storage of your Timbersled snow bike requires preventive measures to aid against deterioration and to prolong the useful life of many components.
Proper storage starts with cleaning, washing and waxing the cowling, side panels, chassis and plastic parts. Wipe down remaining surfaces with a damp cloth. Clean and use paint to touch up any rusted or previously painted surfaces. Be sure that corrosive salt and acids are removed from surfaces before beginning preservation with waxes and rust inhibitors like grease, oil or paint.
The snow bike should be stored in a dry garage or shed, out of direct sunlight, and covered with a fabric snow bike cover. Plastic tarps may cause condensation to form and damage snow bike components.
Moderate track tension should be maintained during summer storage. The snow bike should be supported off the ground to allow the track to hang freely.
At the end of each ride, park your snow bike on a level surface and support it at the rear with an appropriate track stand. The track should be suspended approximately 4 inches (10 cm) off the ground.
Remove the key (if applicable) and cover the vehicle.
