Ice? Studs? In Arizona when it's under 50 it's too cold for me to ride. Big Brass Gorilla ones to you pal, I must be a wimp.

I did a little frozen-lake riding, but without studs.

Drain the carb before opening the petcock to get the freshest gas in there.

Lake riding with studs, is a blast. Check out my garage XR600.....I had no problem starting the 600 if the weather was above 30F or so, even when it was in the back of my truck for 30 minutes or more, on the way to the lake.
I have a 650L and the tires, that I haven't put together yet. I'm with Dave on the carb thing. I learned this the first year of seasonal storage. Tried to fire up the bike, and needed to drain the old gas out of the carb to get it to run.

If by sub zero you mean 0C then try laying the bike on it's side. This causes the carb to flood a little and can help get it started. I had to remove the choke plate on my XR600 because it was about to break in half. This is the only was I can start my XR600 when it's freezing or colder.

If you mean below zero as in below 0F then you are on your own.
