So where are you guys putting an extra battery at on the Pioneer. The little battery wouldn't even turn it over this morning with the cold temps we had. I am thinking about putting one under the drivers seat. It will be much better for the winch also then.

I'm considering adding a battery in the area under the hood. Just to have some extra for aux lights and a radio when working.

There might be room to upgrade to the bigger 20BS battery, I haven't looked that close though. That's what the 680 Rincon uses and the 650 uses that as an upgrade for the colder climates.

How cold are you talking? The first morning I had mine it cranked quite a while before it finally fired. Then I read about depressing the gas pedal and slowly letting off as its cranking and it started much better. It must have been really cold to not even crank. It hit -9 here the other morning.......

This is another way I do it. If it's cranks longer than normal, let the key off for a sec and then crank it again. It has always worked for cold starts for me with any of the fuel injected atvs or SxS. Second key hit it should pop right off.

Not that I am against the gas pedal thing, but I usually just reach in and depress the brake by hand and start it.

I'll have to give it a try in the morning, I'd prefer not to know if they will start below zero! lol Thanks for the tip.

I just bought an '18 plain jane 700, I'm also in wisconsin, west central. I haven't been through a winter yet with it. How cold has it started in really cold temperatures? Anybody have to use ether? Maybe we don't want to.

From what I have found with the 700 in cold weather. Turn the key on and start cranking right away for about 3 seconds. Turn the key off and repeat. It almost always starts on the second cycle even down in the -20 temps.
