Had my Kodiak SE for a couple months now, about 80 miles and just under 10 hrs on the unit. I wanted to touch on the cold weather/starting of the Kodiak for anyone who is interested. I live up in the Interior of Alaska where the winter temps can be around the -30 F mark fairly regularly. I went to start the machine up at -10 and it took some coaxing, but after about a minute of on and off cranking it fired right up. took a few mins to get up to temperature but when it did it ran like a champ. Anything in the 0 to +15/20 range seems to be fairly easy starting.
