I'll fire them up and let them warm up for a few minutes.
Depends on how cold it is. The colder, the longer I let them warm up.
I don't feel the rear heat exchanger.
Usually go by the head temp.
Don't want to idle it too long as it loads them up.
Once warm. I'll shut them down and continue to dress, etc.
They'll retain their heat longer than it takes to finish getting ready.
Then take it easy for the first few miles.
Just installed a digital readout water temp. gauge on the 2 Gades.
Jacqui's Formula Deluxe came with the gauge package.
That'll give me a reading I can go by once I can relate the numbers to my warm up procedure mentioned above.
