I thought I would close my personal loop - I had a bad battery. My 2009 still had the original Exide with ~200 CCA. I replaced it with a Yuasa YUAM6RH4H YTX14H-BS Battery, pushing out 240 CCA and I've had zero issues with cold weather starts since then. The battery is definitely more powerful and the engine catches noticeable quicker than when I first bought the bike.

Its been outside during my workdays (I park on the street). Today its a balmy 26 degrees in NYC ( -3C for you non 'Muricans)

I'm going to go play with my multimeter when I get home just for shits and giggles...
