Default Yamaha's and cold weather

Be for worned. With the 10 to 20 degree weather we've had this past week, I have changed 10 accelerator cables#1 and had to wait for 30 degrees for forward reverse cables to thaw out on several cars. How do you guy's in the mid west cope with this problem?

I don't use my carts in the winter, how do the sleds cables keep from freezing?

I never had a problem with my cart, it did shift harder but not that bad. What I did have a problem with is water in the gas. I don't run it in the winter much lately (unfortunately) but in the fall I dump in some drygas just in case.
