From what you've explained to us so far, the problem DOES lie with the auto decompression. I doubt the starter motor would have the torque to push through a compression stroke and would make it sound like your battery does not provide enough juice.
My bike doesn't have it (or electric start) so I have to do the manual route, but I have a manual decom lever to get me past the tough part (comp stroke).
