Did you convert to all DC? If you haven't and are running stock type battery, this will persist. On my 06 I converted it to DC and used stock battery and this weak starting went away. Only when putting up arrows in summer does it get weak from using it every 4 mins.
The battery gets the full charge and works fine.
On the 09, in stock form, the starting was horrible. Same stuff as you. After getting the right pilot jet and putting a Shorai battery in there and it starts first stab cold or hot. Unless something starts going wrong, I'm going to hold off with the DC conversion.
So either get a much lighter stronger cranking power Shorai, or convert it to DC w/current battery. The stock charging set up sucks.
