How important is it to put the bike up on stands for the winter??

Your bike will still function, but you might have flat spots. In the past I've just left it on the kickstand. You could get some stand on Ebay for cheap money. If for nothing else then working on the bike. ;)

It is prolly a lil bit of overkill. I mean, these bikes weigh around 400lbs...vehicles sit still for months with thousands of pounds sitting on the wheels and they are fine.

If you are THAT concerned about it, just go to the garage once a week or so and roll your bike enough to turn the wheels 90 degrees.

With that being said, i will prolly put mine on the stands. haha

Sweet.

I think I'll just do as suggested and move the bike once a week. Didn't think my wife would be too keen on me walking in with more parts and tools after showing up with a brand new Gixxer just last week! LOL
