My 81 900 always got a bit sluggish in the winter but that was only during near zero(F) temperatures. The oil should heat up after you drive awhile and the shifting should become looser. If it bothers you that much just install thinner oil for the winter. -- - goblin - newsgroup: alt.bobgoblin-extraordinaire - Ask your ISP to carry it! - website:
