Re: Do you ride in the cold?
Grab a thrift store blanket, and wrap your worthy steed! Just leave the blanket outside, so it stays frozen, if you can. If you keep the motor from iceing up, you'll be a step ahead. Oh, and a grocery bag over your seat is always a good idea.
You know them little hand warmer packs? Lay one on you carb and intake for a bit before you start it.
Actually scratch that, PA is damn cold. Cover your bike with a tarp, and an hour afore you leave, take a large heating pad, and wrap your jug, set on high. I'm sure your motor would appreciate it.
I had to use an electric blanket on a rather stubborn Diesel pickup. Worked for me anyways.
Just make sure the 'lectric stuff don't get wet.
