If you can, keep it in a warmer place like a garage. Unless you put coolant instead of anit-freeze, then there's not much to worry about.

put fuel stabilizer in the gas tank and run it for a while or take it for a ride. you want to get this stuff in the whole fuel system. disconnect the ground on the battery and charge the battery every month. or you can get a battery tender to keep it charged while your not using the bike. try to lift the quad off the ground so the tires dont get flat spots on them.

It runs fine in the winter. Wait for a warmer day then another freeze to harden/ice the tops of snow drifts. you can then blast over the drifts like they were mounds of dirt.

You will need a whisk broom to brush snow out of areas. A compressor is handy for blowing snow out of tight places.

Snow and mud on a DS is like flying a plane in that "speed is life".

We run them all winter in New-Brunswick, they are a blast in the snow. But if you really have to park it, I would just put some fuel stabilizer and a battery tender. And it should be ready to go when the warm weather comes back around.
