The e-start seems to only work when the bike has been running for 5-10 minutes or so. Has anyone else had this problem?
My bike does the same thing.. This morning it was 30 degrees in the desert and the starter really didn't want to start the bike. I figure if the bike won't start up within 10 seconds you have a dead battery.. It charges fast and will restart the bike perfect after the bike's warm, but you're right, early in the morning I think I'm going to kick it from the get-go (which is really easy). I'm sure these bikes have just enough cold cranking amps in the batteries to turn the motor over a couple of times and that's it. Jim gave some good advise too....Leaning the bike over does help..

1. Think of it like an old carburated car, pump the gas a couple of times and then start. I pull the choke and give the throttle a couple of twists. Then I hit the button and wham-o it starts even when cold out. How ever I do use a trickle charger, the cold robs any battery of power car,motorcycle or what ever. I would first try giving the throttle one twist and see if that helps.
