Ours has no problem starting in the cold, but I guess a lot of them do. I just set it on prime for a couple of minutes, pull the choke, and fire it up.

I heard 6 inches on Paradise Divide, much lower than Pearl. People are XC skiing on Kebler. Probably not advisable to try Pearl, but I think that's true 365 days a year so take it for what it's worth.

Brake Pedal Adjustment?

I read somewhere, maybe in the service manual, that you can't adjust the height of the brake pedal. My wife would like to have it a bit power in relation to the peg. Can this be done?
