Question about 2005 Kymco Xciting 500
When it drops below 30 degrees , it trys to turnover but does not fireup.
tried float/trickel charger on luck same results
Try using lighter weight oil, like 5 w 20. It sounds like you're using too heavy of an oil. It wouldn't hurt to check/clean/replace your spark plugs also.

Tips for a great answer:
H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 10W40 as excellent for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature below 40 degrees F (4 degrees C).
H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 20W50 as good for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature above 40 degrees F (4 degrees C).
H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 50 as poor for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature above 60degrees F (16 degrees C).
H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 60 as poor for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature above 80 degrees F (27 degrees C).
For transmission and/or primary use SYN3 or FORMULA+ TRANSMISSION AND PRIMARY CHAINCASE LUBRICANT (Part No. 99851-05, US quart size).
I won't deal with fork oil at all.
Whatever you do, NEVER use anything but DOT 4 Brake Fluid.in a DOT 4 system. Also be careful with it as it will eat away any and all painted surfaces and even the black powder coated brake fluid reservoir coatings.
If DOT 5 goes into a DOT4 system or DOT 4 goes into a DOT5 system all rubber brake system components will be destroyed.
