Good point Pete, thanks, I won't use the start button.
I was talking to a friend in the last few days who was a mechanic in a past life and has had lots of experience with storing small engines of different types.
He suggested that I NOT change the oil before storage, change it in the spring prior to the first ride. The reasoning behind that is that the oil in there now has only 1500km on it, so has very little contaminants in it. Over the winter the oil will absorb moisture and since the engine isn't running and burning it off, dump it in the spring and put in clean oil at that point.
