I was out for a ride today and the bike stalled, hehe, anyhow when i hit the magic button it just went click like the battery was dead, i though she must have stopped charging so i kicked her over and drove right home (about a minute away), checked charging system and battery, by turning on headlight for a few minutes, and cranked her over again just fine, anyone else have anything like this happen to their 06 wr?
If the piston stops close to TDC on the up stroke (point of maximum compression), the starter doesn't have the oomph to spin it past that point. If you had rocked the bike in gear to get the piston past that "sticky" point, there was a good chance she would have fired right up. It's been discussed many, many times before - I'm surprised you haven't read about it before.
