That should be adequate oil viscosity/weight. I run 10w30 mobil conventional in all4 of my rides, this am was -8*f all cranked a LITTLE slower than when it's warmer but all cranked strong and fired up well. Might need to have a starter motor amp draw test done when COLD. An electric high draw motor that has little to no lubricant to it and COLD weather can do strange symptoms to starting .
