Had the same issue with an early twin cam that belonged to a buddy. he had this wierd kinda intake thing that looked like the intake with the round flaps that you used to see on a hot rod back in the day. I don't think it did anything but look cool to him.
but anyway it was crazy hard to warm up when cold. if you are starting this bike in an ambient of 40f or less it will take some time to warm up. which I don't understand because the twin cam runs hot like 220 plus. give it extra time to warm up in cold weather. might be nothing wrong with the bike... I mean maybe what your up against isn't a breakdown of the machine but poor engineering (WHO SAID THAT?) anyhoo I've seen it too and everything was tip top far as the HD cronies said

Is SAE 5W - 30 ok for my old Jeep and Cheyenne...

Its probably ok but I would recommend 10w30 for anything with more than 100,000 miles on the odometer.
Also, 5w30 works better in colder temps, the first number is the "cold thickness" and the second number is the "hot thickness". The bigger the number the thicker the oil in basic terms.

Unfortunately, you're NOT going to get an accurate reading with a cold engine, it needs to be up to full operating temperature!

Also, as much air as possible needs to be allowed into engine, so remove aircleaner/filter, and hold throttle WIDE open while cranking engine to get reading.

No heat

You need to bleed the cooling system of excess air and add aditional antifreeze.

Bike shuts off after stopping. no engine check light comes on nor does the FI light come on. 2002 GSXR 1300 4034 original miles

A very young bike to be having problems (Low Miles) did this start after refill at the gas station? If the bike is hesitant and dies when stopping it could be bad fuel, if not is the day temp cold? if so it could have a faulty ATS (Air Temp Sensor). If bad fuel is the issue drain the tank completely and fuel lines, clean the fuel filter on the fuel pump. Refill with clean fuel and it should be OK. If the air temp is cold, check the ATS values with a multimeter. Another thing to check is for any airleaks around the throttle bodies, check all vacuum lines are secure and rubber plugs are in place.
