Can an engine like this be stored for a year or so? What would be the precautions and downsides to storing it?

Anton i presume you can store it like any other engine if you prep it properly.
Take the plugs out and put some oil into the cylinders to prevent rust.
Put clean oil and circulate through system.
Clean the fuel system to have no fuel that can vaporize and leave a jelly substances in the lines etc.
Store in a dry climate and keep dust out as much as possible.
Cover all openings like exhaust and inlet openings not to get valves standing open get any moisture and get stuck.
Turn the engine say once every 3 months or so to prevent valves getting stuck.
I would contact Jean at Cubby Factory for the right procedure.
He is a knowledgeable guy and always helpful.
I have done this numerous times with car engines and then it is start up and go. Just a blue cloud of smoke while
the oil is burn away.
