Once in while its seems that the starter has hard time cranking, in such case I use the kick just to move the piston to an easy point to start. Probably its an indication that the battery is charged a bit low. But other than that no starting issues or any other electrical problems. The only changes i done with my electrical system is adding a fan (long time ago) and replaced the battery to TurnTech (Lithium) few months ago. Generally the bike is doing ok. I'm trying to avoid any future problem and get that fixed before battery dies. Today i cleaned all electrical connectors but stil got 13.5V. I've searched for this mod and came up with nothing. Strange, as I know its a common fix. I will need to measure the stator voltages and exclude it as the root cause.
Why do you think 13.5 is low charging voltage??? i think thats a tad on the low side according to the book specs but that should charge a battery just fine.. A few of the YFZ quads ive worked on charge at 12.9 or so.. I know that seems low, but as the throttle is held between 1/4 and half throttle, the voltage slowly creeps up.. Ive watched it on my meter a few times at work..
