I would do before storage - do fresh oil, lube chain, etc. Oil change removes most of the contaminants, rather than leave them in the crankcase over winter. I use a battery tender once a month. After oil change, run engine a bit to "wash down" the oil deposits.

I'm in the same boat. Currently at 250mi, hoping to crank out the last 350 before putting it away for the winter. I think I am going to have the service done before storage so that it sits with fresh fluids rather than sitting for 4 months with all the break in gunk/contaminants still in the crankcase. I think if I run the bike for a while once every week or two and use some STABIL that the fluids will be plenty fresh come spring.
