Any insight on starting your TWs in cold weather? This is my first fall/winter with my TW. It seems to have crank. Just didn't want to start this morning.

Not uncommon. Here’s what I’d work on to hopefully improve it.

Make sure battery is in proper health
Try adjusting the air/fuel mixture screw
Clean and lube air filter
Inspect carb boots

Make sure to choke it. Mine won't even consider starting without full choke under about 65F.
:icon_thumbright: And I dont think it helps to twist the throttle until after it actually starts either

Check the condition of your battery – this is the most common fault. Normal starting (for me anyway), is full choke, no throttle (from cold). It should “chuckle” into life from there

If the battery is naffed, you may have enough to crank it over via the electric boot, but not enough power to the spark plug. I ran a Suzuki GT550 like that for a year – prime it on the electric start – kick it to get it running


You do not have any information in your signature line to tell us which year you have, so we're restricted to making guesses here .....
