Frostbite: Wow...if you are getting that much icing...you must be freezin your butt off or just like to ride that much, or all the above!! lol that is cool. I think the dynamics of the bike totally change too in those kinds of temperatures. Are you using thin enough oil as recommended by the manual for those extreme temps? It could be that the different metals respond differently to temperture variations, and you might not be getting as good a seal as you should because of temp differences. I would be interested to hear what you end up finding out...so keep us posted.
