Cool, let us know what you find. I am curious myself. My battery is getting older and I've been noticing changes in cranking.

God loves Texas? Not that much anymore. If he did, he would not have allowed the pussification efforts performed by immigrating Commiefornians.
We will have to find a better state soon, once the blue people destroy this one.

What do you mean by cold star(cold temp start or it sat a couple of days)? When you say hot starts are easier, what do you mean(High temps or after you have ran it for a while)? If your bike has set for awhile, but you want to go for a ride, then try this, turn your key on and off twice then start it. If it starts easier then your fuel pump is getting weak. If it still is hard to start then your battery is dying.

I grew up on the shores of Erie, right in Avon Lake on the west side of Cleveland! Lake Rd and Drummond Street, loved the winters there and still love winters!

I was moved to Cleveland ( east side ) when I was 2 years old...

remember the Hough riots...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hough_riots
the house I lived in.. was one of many set on fire.. ( yes, we were in it at the time)


I disliked winter as a child... it stopped or slowed my use of my bicycle..
but bicycle ice hockey was fun..


after I got married, I moved to Bedford Ohio. just southeast of Cleveland.

Is it as much fun as bicycle ball?
I have never heard of bicycle hockey. Got a video? (I don't want to accidentally look up something wrong on YT)

I remember inventing the "Crashed Ice" craze after a good game of ice hockey, we took to the nearby sled hill and skated down the one area that we had dug out to make corners and jumps when we would go down on the old saucers. So many kids would go down it, the snow turned to ice so it was like a bobsled run and we skated it. This was in the early 70's
