starting engine... in winter
Since I can not store the bike, I have been riding whenever the temperature as above 40 degrees (nyc to be exact).
I have not taken the bike out since our last 50 degree day in early december.
Just took it out today and when I started the bike, the engine or starter clanked (since it was a big thug, my guess is the engine). How do I prevent this in the future? Guess the engine wasn't properly lubed after a few weeks of sub 30 degree weather (and lower). Is there an additive I can put into the engine so I have minimum lubrication for a smooth cold start?
