Electric start in cold


Hi i wanted to know if any one knows how to start a electric start dirt bike in cold. I really want to ride around in the snow but i can't start my bike and it has no back up kick start. Bump start is not really a option because excessive snow/ice.

Hello, try heating up the motor. A propane heater works great, or a hair dryer will also work, but is much slower.

I got it now, I just bump started it it got warmer and snow on the road melted

My FI 500exc won't start in really cold weather. I do have the option to kick the bike though.... Once the bike is warmed up though, it starts fine with the electric start....
