Cold weather starting - Yamaha Generators

Does anyone have any experience with starting any of the following Yamaha generator/inverters in cold weather (down to 0 F)? 2000, 2400is, 2400isHC? Any issues? More pulls? I have some friends with Honda 2000 machines that start on 1-2 pulls in warm weather, but take 5-10 pulls or more in cold weather.

I don't know about cold weather yet for my Yamaha 2400isHC but it did start first pull at the dealer right after he put in the gas for the first time. I was very impressed at that.

I got a pair. They are wonderful. Start on the first time and maintenance appear to be fairly eases. I toted them on my trip to Alaska...but never used them. I hope to use them this summer or this fall when I head out west to visit some of the national parks.

We have a pair of Honda 2000s in which we have always used fuel stabilizer and it is a one pull event every time; summer or winter.
