I bought a new 2012 recently and my dealer told me not to use the starter when the bike is cold. He said it can ruin the motor. Now, I have owned an '06 and an '07 WR450 and never had a single problem with using the starter when cold unless the battery was low. Aren't these motors basically the same from way back in '04 or something?
Is the dealer nuts or is there something to this?
