    My friend has advised me to change my fluids at the beginning of each riding season, which for me is in Apr/May. He indicated to me that after the temp changes from Fall thru Winter, condensation forms in the fluids thus the reason for changing them at the start of my riding.

    Any thoughts?

    Most here will suggest you change your fluids before storing your ride. The thought is that you get rid of contaminants that may do damage while sitting all winter. When spring comes your good to go. A battery tender.Drain the fuel completely drain carb or run fuel out of throttle body.

    Ok, thanks so much for the reply. I will change over to my changes at the conclusion of my riding season/prior to winter storage.

    Don't forget your other fluids (brake, fork, shocks - if air), and lubricate the neck bearings.

    I juice mine up with SeaFoam and MMO...keeps parts with a nice coating of light oil and cleaners to fight the gunk monsters! Run it about 5 miles or so to get it all coated good.
