Sarge, I removed your other thread completely that you deleted..:wink: I also renamed this thread to include atvs and issue. Thanks for posting!

That website is non-responsive in that thread. That is third party..so I am not sure what is going on with the website, sorry.

I just posted a thread on some info I found online: http://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/general-atv-discussion/9137-how-winterize-atv.html

Here is another tutorial I found online:

Step 1: Fill your gas tank up. Include a fuel stabilizer to prevent the gasoline from breaking down and causing damage to the fuel lines and various other areas of your ATV.

Step 2: To prevent corrosion on the metal surfaces of your ATV, it’s a good idea to change the oil. This helps keep everything properly lubed and clean.

Step 3: Keep your throttle and clutch cables lubed to help them stay in good working condition.

Step 4: Focus attention on the battery when you plan to store for the winter, since it gradually loses charge over time Ideally, you’ll want to leave your battery in the ATV and attach a battery tender to it. The battery tender is a smart charger that basically turns itself on and off as needed to prevent overcharging. Take time to clean the posts on your battery now if they are corroded. Add grease to the threads of the bolts to keep them clean all season.

Step 5: Inflate your tires to their ideal level to decrease the risk of flat spots forming on your tires. Take the time to move the ATV several times a month—parking on a different section of the tires each time also helps prevent flat spots. To prevent your tires from dry rot, keep them out of direct sunlight.

Step 6: Give your ATV a good scrub before storing it for the winter. Don’t leave any grease or bugs on the paint or chromed areas. There are products available that you can apply to the paint and metal areas to protect the finish.

Step 7: Store your ATV inside if at all possible. If it isn’t possible to store the bike inside, invest in a good form-fitting, breathable cover.

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?
