I was riding today with someone who had a '13 WR450F. He said that his mechanic told him to only use the electric start when absolutely necessary. That it's bad for the engine. And that the engine "gets a memory", so that it will only start with the button. Also to never use the button until the bike is broken in.
I've never heard this and think his mechanic is full of shit.
He also said that kick starting spins the engine faster, this one I could believe.
I do all my own work and have an '09 that lights right up with the button so I use it.
I told him I would ask on TT and tell him what I hear. What's your take on this?
