Default Cold start

Hi it's that time of year when the cold comes and i've noticed that my 08 er6n struggles to start up in the morning and when it does it makes a really loud metal banging noise.

Is this normal? I thought about changing the spark plugs to see if that helps but any help would be appreciated.

Mine starts fine, just have to make sure it's warmed up before I try and go to first gear or it will shut off lol

Those are both odd issues...lol
The not starting and loud clank is enough to make me take it in or look at it.
-Oil level
-Battery CCA rating?
Outside of that I can't think of what it would be.

The shutting off before warm is odd too. I have got on my a few moments after I start it, it idles high to "warm up" but if you go into gear and clutch out slow the RPM drops because the friction of course. So it dying...running lean?

Some think higher RPM to warm up is proper. Other argue, why sit there and high idle when you let it "warm up" so the oil can circulate.

Good luck guys

Could it just be the engine noise until the oil gets topside ?
What weight oil are you using?
