Here ya go everyone. This is my first video attempt.

It was -26 and the Pioneer had been sitting for around 2 days since it was last started. Double clutching the key didn't work. After I got in I depressed and then held the pedal halfway down. I did two short cranks. Then I depressed it to the floor and held it there with the long crank. I then let off the pedal and depressed halfway again, and that finally got it to pop off.

The entire time, the engine was "popping", she just couldn't maintain it into a start.

Sounds like it was everything the battery wanted to do. Honda should have installed the larger battery in these machines, for accessories and cold weather starting. Knowing the little tricks in the cold weather helps get them going though and every machine is different on how they start.

I found it interesting that 2 days ago when I started it, it popped off with 2 hits of the key and it was probably around 10 below. I wasn't expecting it to have this hard of a time at just 15 degrees colder. That oil had to be like taffy at this temp though I suppose.

Did a little tweaking on the video quality. This is a much better link.

My phone quit working as I was uploading the video. It froze and quit on the way to the house.....

Dick, it was my first try. I'll do better next time.
