Give plenty of after run oil in crankshaft, piston sleeve, carburator, bearing.

also keep it in a ZipLock bag, i like to get all the air out of it while i am closing the bag and then place a rubber band around the plastic bag/head of the motor, this way what ever after run drips out of the front bearing it stays in the bag and not all over or where you will keep the engine and no air will get to it also.
