Hey guys, I desperately need your help!!
Bought a 2012, with 7K km on it. I love the bike. Ever since I got it, starting it was a pain in the neck.
I figured the battery was crap. Bought a brand new one, charged it for a full day to make sure it was topped up (is a yuasa battery topped up when i installed it on the bike and the voltage meter in the bike reads 12.3? I figured that was low).
I try starting it, still no luck. The starter motor is cranking, but nothing happens. Had to crank it like 6 times, and give it some throttle for it to start. Once it starts, it runs pretty smooth, idles at abut 1300 rpms.
Funny thing is, if i shut it off when warm and turn it back on, engine turns on in a heartbeat!
What is the issue here? The connectors to the ground seemed very clean, no rust or anything. Once the bike is running, it reads anywhere between 13.5 to 14.5Volts.
What do I do now? it's driving me crazy!
