A stupid question for all. We were at our cottage this weekend doing some much needed sledding. Woke up Sunday to -8. One of the sleds could not get fired up, seems my son may have left the gas switch on. Is there alternatives to this like some engine warmers that can be left over night, some form or another like a small inexpensive heating blanket.
Thanks

Is it liquid cooled? If so I would think a block heater, with the inline pump for the coolent that pumps it through the system might work..

No it is not, older Yamaha XLV 540. I was thinking of taking an older small heating blanket (like what our parents used), set it on the lowest setting and put it around the fuel pump and line to the carb. Whenever this happened before I would put some fuel in the spark plug head and it seemed to do the trick, not yesterday.
