I stored my 02 VTX Retro in a heated shed. The shed is plenty large enough and nothing else has had a problem, temp was 55 on coldest days. I checked it at least once a month and did not notice any oxidation on rear wheel. I pulled it out and took off the bags and noticed the entire rear wheel oxidized and pitted. Front wheel is fine all chrome is fine. The bike was purchased last April as a leftover. I polished the aluminum wheels with metal cleaner and wax, formulated for aluminum.

Has anyone heard of a problem like this?

I have had other bikes with aluminum wheels and never had an issue.

Pulled cff the bags. What bags? Where they plastic bags? That may be the problem. Think about a greenhouse. A good waxing is all it really needs before you put it up for the winter.

Welcome to the board!
Bookmark this website, http://tech.vtxoa.com This is the sister site to this message board and contains all your How-to/Tips/Tricks/Why’s and links to other helpful sites for your new VTX.
There is also a helpful red Search icon at the top of every page(not the Google search). Enter your item to be searched in the "Search Query" section and click the "Search for all terms" bullet under the query. Then go to the "Search Options" section and choose a board from the "Forum" drop down menu. This will limit the results to your search so you won't get pages of "Fluff" .

The pupose of the "Search" is to offer a member the opportunity to research his/her question better. There is so much information from past threads that you may never see because that member is no longer here, or doesn't see your new post, or just won't respond to the same question. So use it to your advantage and enjoy the board! View this funny and informative film about posting and searching…

Also, take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the forum. At the top of every board there are threads that are tagged as "Sticky" These threads are "Sticky" because they contain very important/valuable information about the VTX and everyone should read them.
The thread at the top of the 1800 tech board called, "Air, Fuel, Motors..." will answer most of the performance questions...
