Turn the gas off and run it out of fuel. Use gas conditioner. Keep the tank full.

The right oil and grease is important. Better some oil and grease that none. My gear boxes take two different kinds even though it is full time 4x4. If you have a sight glass for oil usually the full mark is half the glass. I run a few miles for elk hunting and have to add every day. I can not see it burning oil nor smell it and it is not leaking either. And for cold weather it is worth changing for the small amount in the case. I also carry a quart.

i have an old grizzly with 600 "woods" miles on it.
i use mobil 1 oil and change it yearly. keep the fuel tank full and a battery tender on when not using.
always turn gas off when on a trailer so gas does not get in the crankcase.
be careful with pressure washers on boots and seals, yamaha says not to even use them.
spray the air filter with sticky oil.
i don't use stabilizer and never had a problem. the only carb service was after 12 years.
other than a few plugs, tires and batteries the carb is the only thing i have done to it.
it has pulled a lot of logs and piles of deer and it just keeps on going and going and going.
