Thanks to all for your responses.
I must have a love/hate relationship with this bike. I'm certainly influenced by reliability, like someone said, ride it then park it.
I left it running to warm up after a cold start the other day, got distracted with the kids, when I came back 15 minutes later, it was roaring away, (had the pilot screw in a bit) and I think the exhaust pipes were glowing a little red. Guess it wouldn't be good to do that to a newer, more high tech bike....
Anyone have any crazy ideas for putting on my own electric start? Surely someone has tried. I can't see spending a thousand bucks to put e-start on a bike that's worth 1500-2000 dollars.
