if its not stored in warm garage an oil pan heater is always a good idea, other then that the obvious let it warm up real good

I leave my poor machine outside all winter in Alberta in the mountains, I find it has always fired up fine. I always leave the fuel full and with gasline antifreeze in it. Synthetics always. Straight antifreeze. I have no doubt that an oil pan heater is a great idea too. Keeping the battery inside is easy foolproofing too. And obviously make sure you let it warm up fully (fan kicks on) and try to beat out as much of the snow from the driveline as you can before you park it. Youll have a very unhappy machine if the first thing it has to do is break the tires free from the wheelwells. Ride on/ Fish on!!
