The bike should start just fine without it. Unless you have a malfunctioning LCV or have it deleted like me. In that case it just takes a few minutes of holding the throttle.

With it being a “semi-wet” sump (or whatever it’s called), your oil temp shouldn’t be a huge issue just because it’s cold. You’ll want it to get up to operating temperature before letting her have it but otherwise, you’ll be fine.

Doubt that there would be much benefit to warming the crankcase there is a minimum amount of oil in it, the Warrior has a dry sump oiling system the oil tank is behind the right-side cover / under the seat.

The coldest temps I rode mine in was 17 degrees. The bike started just fine. My fingers however, did not deal with the cold near as well as the motor did. ;)

From a guy that rode in Chicago winters when the streets were dry: Suggest nitrile gloves under your gauntlet gloves.

I tried those and they didn't really work well for me. Now I have heated gloves and those work like a champ! :)

Nitrile under-gloves when it's cold but dry work for me too. I bought snowmobile gloves years ago. They are a little clunky and took time to break-in. But they absolutely have done well even in the Rockies and High Sierra. Living at Mount Hood proved their worth to me.
