Hi boyweevil.the manual suggests u crank it within 2 seconds of the light going off.it will nearly always start cold(depending on how well its servised)and
if the engine is already hot,i just start it straight away.as regards to starting it right away on a cold morning,think the worst that can happen is a failed start,black cloud of smoke and a drain on the battery
