Thanks GS. Good to know the volts can go that low and the abs not default. I think I will wait until it gets into the higher 30s to try the battery jump part of this test. I didn't mention it earlier, but after the bike is run for a few miles, it starts instantly. No slow cranking.

Even before I had this current problem, I noticed that as the temperature dropped, say 60 to 50 degrees, the bike had to be kept on the charger sooner. Are BMW twins just generally difficult to start in colder weather? Two large cylinders and pretty small batteries?
