Question RC51 Cover for Storage

Unfortunately, winter is quickly approaching and I am planning on putting the bike in hibernation for the next few months. Can anyone recommend a quality cover for the RC51? I can't seem to find one specifically for the bike. I remember reading somewhere that the Honda OEM cover for the CBR1000rr fits but I am not sure.

Thanks

Is it indoors? If it is just do what I do, she just gets covered with a soft sheet...it breathes and keeps the dust off of her.

Outdoors I'm not sure because all my bikes have always been indoors.

The bike will be stored inside my detached garage. I still want it covered though to keep everything off of it. The sheet may work. I would just have to purchase one big enough to cover the entire bike.

Thanks

any sportbike cover will work. I still have one I originally bought for my 2000 rc51, from Honda.

Cover will stop things from collecting on top of it, but you mention a detached garage. Do some good things to keep the rodents out of the airbox, exhaust pipes, tail section etc. Steel wool works great for plugging entry holes, a couple mothballs will protect your storage areas.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

GEZA gear FTW!!!

I have 3 and one is probably 15 years old and is perfect condition even after all those years. They are a bit on the spendy side but IMO, worth every penny!
