cold start
Here in Ohio I try to ride as much as I can and there are a few days in the winter when I can get in the saddle. What I do is tune the carbs a bit rich in the winter, not much but a bit sure helps my cold bike to start with only a few kicks. I then lean her out a bit come summer.
Good luck:thumbup1:
