Is it okay to lay my dirt bike on its side?
If I drain the gas, and oil, is it okay to have my bike on its side? Would there be anything else I would have to do?

No problem. Mine spend most of their lives laying on their sides, with my laying beside them, dazed anyway. Seriously though, not a problem, if fluids out, if this will be for a prolonged period.

Drain the radiator if it's a liquid cooled bike. I wouldnt lay it down just buy a kickstand.

You will leak a lot of gas out of the carb overflow, and you will leak coolant out of the radiator overflow tube if its a liquid cooled bike! Just find a tree to lean it against

Not a problem unless a 4-stroke engine and a prolonged 'down', than oil may seep into the cylinder.

Yes its OK as long as you don't bend any exhaust pipes or other major parts.
