    Out of interest, what does AYB charge?

    £70

    I wonder what he does that I don't do myself.

    Have a look at this thread for details, /index.php?topic=1108.0

        Had my bike done by AYB last month, pretty impressed with the clean and treatment, way better than I would have done myself :)

            Bike cleaned and treated with GT85 spray, serviced, SORN'ed, warranty cancelled and tucked away for another winter.

              One debatable question is, what period of time is deemed as laying up/storage. When it comes to using a fuel stabilizer (STA-BIL),  a period of 30 days is quoted. The 1980 Yamaha XJ650 Owner's Manual quotes long term storage as 60 days or more. The BMW RT Rider's Manuals, both 2012 & 2021 give no specified time period.
