Just starting to get a bit here as of the last few hours, its supposed to snow all night, but after the abysmal efforts that have happened since it started it just looks like someones kicked a box of percil all over the drive.
If your gonna snow at least do the fooker properly!!
Wouldnt it make sense just to go out and give it a little start up in the garage and leave it ticking over for a few mins? or better still just remove the battery..? it was a cosey -17 here this morning and -23 up in the hills nearby! temperatures risen from -11 to -4 though and the sky is gradually getting more and more orange, i fear some snow is heading in! again... to add to the 7" or so thats frozen...
From memory you need around 15 minutes of idling time to replenish the power you draw by starting an engine. That is assuming you do it on the first try. If you have a bitch to start motor you'll need even longer.
Snowing down here... again. Which helps the ice issue because now I have no idea where the hell it is.
Your Scooter, like 95% of other Scooters in the world, should have a kick start for this exact type of situation. Just simply turn the key into the ignition stage, then kick start the Scooter while holding the throttle open slightly.
Anyway, as for the snow....My town is still in about 10 inches of the stuff. My Car didn't have a chance for the first few days due to it being a RWD, 2 tonne barge, so I had to borrow my friends Micra, which went through the snow greatly. Luckily, the Snow thawed out enough for me to use my own car to get to Ireland for Christmas like I planned. The drive here was pretty uneventful as the Motorways have been treated. Ireland was, and still is a PITA though. I just about made it here, and my Car is staying put until the Snow thaws a bit.
