Hard Starting Conditions Poll

If you have experienced a hard start - aka 20+ seconds of attempted starting that has failed to clean start. What conditionals was your bike under when it gave a hard time starting? If none of these are close enough, post up your conditions.

Mine does too. Takes about 2 engine revolutions and then it starts without hesitation .

What constitutes "a hard time starting"? Occasionally it will take two tries. Does that count?

Good clarifying question: Hard starting would be much more than 2 attempts. We often find that the bike will refuse to start after 5 or 6 cycles of 2-3sec presses of the starter or more. The condition oftens seems like the bike is not receiving ignition, followed by a strong fuel odor and then several more attempts that might result in a pop, or more then maybe a rough idle and then dies or then finally it starts but does not idle without throttle inputs.

If you have other conditions, add those as well but 2 is not an issue that would strain the battery and starting system unless you are holding the starter button down for long periods of time during each attempt. Then maybe 10 sec pushes would constitute hard starting in my eyes.
