cold weather. for you riders that live where its cold, buy a dipstick oil heater. remove dip stick and plug it in, works on a 110 volts. cost about $35.00 regards walkabout
I bought one for my pickup in the mid 70's in NH and was a waste of money. Needed a block heater for the water or a oven type element under the oil pan if you wanted to heat the oil.Do they work or are they a gimmick?
Geez I won't even think of riding if its under 50 F out LOL. I have bad osteoarthritis plus my skin is very sensitive and dry so after working outside year round for 30 years I know my limits. I do envy the guys I see riding when its in the 20's around here though and since gas went way up I see a lot more of them.Put your favorite brand of synthetic 10-40 in it and forget it. I use Amsoil in everything I own from my diesel truck to my motorcycles and lawn mower. If it won't turn over with that in it you shouldn't be riding. I found my limit one trip at -26º F. It was getting dark and the next part of the trip meant 86 miles over the mountains. Parked the rig and took a bus home. :ROFL:
