Keeping Motorcycle Rust at Bay With Proper Winter Storage

Motorcycle rust is a major concern for dedicated riders. It’s most likely to rear its ugly head after a long winter of improper storage (a horror some riders refer to as “garbage rot”). Most riders aren’t displaying their bikes off-season as art installations in their climate-controlled living rooms. Rather, they are kept in a garage, next to the car or exercise equipment. Unless that facility is weather-tight, you could be in for an unpleasant surprise come spring. A carelessly-stored bike can quickly become rust-ridden, with the piston rings, gas tank and body panel often the most susceptible initially.motorcycle rust cover

Preventing motorcycle rust during storage doesn’t have to be a major chore. You have likely invested thousands in your bike, so a little extra care and prep is in order to keep your ride in top shape.¬†Understand the cold temperature isn’t the greatest threat, but rather the moisture. That’s why plastic covers a bad way to go. It might shield the bike from dust, but it’s going to trap menacing moisture, which makes your bike even more rust-prone.

Zerust motorcycle covers help prevent motorcycle rust with non-toxic VCI (vapor corrosion inhibitor) technology woven into the breathable fiber. Our product was specifically recommended last year by the dedicated riders at UltimateMotorcycling.com.
