I just found out I'm deploying over to the desert for 4 months. Anybody have any recommendations as to what I should do to my bike before I leave? Disconnect the battery...anything?

depends on the area you live in and climate as well..if you have someone you trust that could keep an eye on it for you, maybe ride it now and then, that would be ideal..but if not, I would..

pull the battery
pull the plugs, stick alittle oil down in there to keep everything lubed up
put it on a bike stand if you can
put a bottle of stabil in the gas tank

Ive heard from several people that if you pull out the plugs, and just dip your finger in oil, around the threads of the spark plug inserts and let it drip down inside the engine, that it will help when you go to start it up, as far as minor wear from sitting so long and then starting up and grinding metal on metal ?

yes, no, maybe so ? :confused:

Makes sense to me. I wasn't questioning you, I just never heard of that and wondered what the purpose was. Inquiring minds want to know. You learn something new every day I reckon.
no probs bro...i kinda put that up there as well, just to see if anybody would question it and chime in... always good to get another affirmation. :)
