    I have a 2006 Heritage Softail that I bought last spring. I want to put it away for the winter. I plan on changing the oil and filter and putting fuel stabizer in gas tank. It will be in my garage untill spring, is there any thing else I should do?

    In addition I jack mine up and put a cover over it. It is in my garage also.

    Does leaving a bike jacked up over the winter month cause any damage to the front end seals or am I just paronoid :)

    I have never had a problem, YET. Of course during the winter months I am always fooling with it (cleaning, inspecting, etc.) so it is on and off the jack all the time.

    Might be a good idea to do the "complete" oil change to get all the old oil out of the engine for winter. Good write up in the self-help section.
