Anyway, I see you're running lithium in your r80g/s.
A few years ago in old school, I was honing In On cold starting ability on my r80g/s for all season commuting.
My coldest successful start and ride on my r80g/s was 11°F with the pc680, magnacore plug wires, dynacoil red, original ignition computer with green part number(5sec ign power with key)
Do you think the earthX could start the r80g/s at 11°F?
yes ...based on extensive 200 amp cranking tests, Earth-X ETX 36 should start at 11f .. unfortunately it's not been cold enough in Oklahoma for me to do a live test at 10f yet ... Shorai LFX 36 did start R80G/S at 10f last year. took a few tries to warm up battery, but it started after a few crank cycles.
folks that have not started an airhead at cold temps don't understand the amount of cranking sometimes needed. provided it's in tune, modern fuel injected bikes start much easier at cold temps ...
