Won't start in cold weather!

I am having a problem starting my bike in the colder weather. I changed the battery and put stableizer in it. It starts like a charm in the summer and when the engine is warm. Its not a Harley (actually it is a Honda CBR). Can anyone help me?

Seriously,
Drain the float bowl
Throw a match into the puddle
Collect the insurance
Put it down on a Harley
Live happily ever after

I guess the answer to my problems is buy a Harley. I didn't know that Harley was a maintence-free bike! Thats funny because I was at the Harley dealer 2 weeks ago looking at a sportster and the dealer told me to start it up. Wouldn't you know it , a brand new Sportster with 5 miles on her wouldn't start! Do you know what the dealer told me---Well you know its a Harley!

Hey don't get in a bind, we play hard here. Welcome to The Forum.

So is there any way to move the bike inside the house? You know, shoot a cat or something?

LouC-Had the same problem with my old '82 CB750. Got lucky and sold it to a dude that adjusted the choke pull button, and put some kind of carb cleaner treatment in the gas tank. That helped it a lot. I'm new here, but these folks are shootin' straight......I'm on a brand new 2003 HD Road King and guess what !? ....... it cranks right up in the cold weather! Worked for me.

Yeah mine stalled the other day right in the middle of the street. So I try in vain to get her going again and all that happens is the friggin' right directional keeps going on and off, duh! Then, miraculously, the directional goes away and the mofo roars to life! Damn, I hate this cold weather!ennis
