Default Re: Small Engines cold air and Performace.

That's another truth to this whole thing that I didn't even mention... once the temp drops to a certain level the engine may not bae able to even reach operating temperature, which in turn will also contribute to the loss of power, especially with an unshrouded air cooled engine that relies on air moving over the fins riding on the road at cruising speeds, it'll actually warm up more at idle sitting than at cruise speed because this extra cold air is moving over the fins and cooling the engine quicker than it can heat it's self up.
