    Roger thanks for the numbers. 204 out of 255 is close to all the way open at 40*f. It dropped to 165 the moment the engine caught. The steppers cracked the throttle for you.

    Rtfm :)

    The manual says open the throttle a little when its really cold.

    This is why.

    Oil is thick, engine needs more gas AND air to fire up.

    Can I change my vote? In September my strip took a dump.

    2012 R1200R. New strip is better and more accurate. It also leaves 1/2 gallon in the tank when 0 miles to go. Fine with me.
