Well, I went on a wolf hunt on the Denali HWY in Alaska and was worried about my Venture starting in the cold since I have had problems with it before. I think I found the solution since yamaha doesn't see a problem with a snowmachine that doesn't like the cold. Luckily there is a lodge that is open year round and they let us use there electricity to heat my engine and battery with a heat gun that we brought. So if you have any issues with your venture not starting in the cold just tow in a generator and a heat gun and within 30-45 minutes your yamaha will probably start. That was the first night. The second night I just let it idle all night because I didn't think it would start. The only problem I had after that is that the exhaust runs to the back which melts everything then it freezes to the track so all i had to do was flip the machine on its side and start wacking away with a shovel until my track broke free of the ice. Once we got off the Denali and loaded everything on the trailer for our 3 hour ride back north I just let it idle on the trailer until I got home.
