So, as the temperature drops, its getting harder/taking longer to get the scoot started. Anyone have the same issue? Anyone have some sound advice? Im not going to put it away for the winter since it is my mode of transport. And I dont have any inclosed place to store it at night. Im considering removing the auto choke and going manual. Thoughts?

I second the charger idea. When its in the 20s here if I'm not on the tender over night I sometimes run the battery down before I get it to start. Someone here also suggested giving the throttle a twist before starting.

I know this is an older thread to bump back up, but I'm hoping I might still get some suggestions for later on this coming fall. My scoot starts up awesome in cold weather, however, it's a good 10-15min before I can even twitch the throttle, otherwise it'll promptly stall & die. I was thinking maybe someone might know how to shorten that timespan to maybe 2-5min. Gas prices the way they are, I hate to waste any of it.

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
