    Hi All,

    I live in Manchester in the UK.
    Having massive problems with cold start and as a newish rider, would
    appreciate any help!!

    When temperature is low, say 0 degrees celcius is low enough to cause
    trouble, bike won't start, even with choke fully on and accelerator
    I've experienced this in earlyish mornings (bike is kept in a garage)
    and late evenings when bike is outside a friend's house.

    Took it to the garage, they fully checked it and found no problems -
    all measurements were well inside the limits, no battery drains
    found.. As they thought the regulator was just inside the normal
    limits they fitted a slightly better one (albeit second-hand) which
    they say improved output a bit to see if it helped.

    Still no luck as this morning it wouldn't start.

    If anyone has similar problems or coments.. i'd appreciate!

    Best Regards

    Do you not love this bike? Is it not your pride and joy?

    Then _why_ is it not kept overnight in your living-room?

    The problem is a lack of respect for your steed, my man!
