k100 bad cold start normal??

just wondering if my problems are purely to do with design. ive had a trouble free summer with this bike ,but since it started getting cold it has been very sluggish to wake up ,and as my other post states wont go at all now!
does anyone else have bad cold start experiences with this model ?

Re: k100 bad cold start normal??

My 85 K100 starts fine at temperatures down to low 30's After that to much danger of ice so I park it for the winter.

May want to consider 10W-40 oil. It helps them spin easier when cold.
