I've had a few starting issues in the past. First I had the two little copper wires re-soldered. Helped for a while until the bike wouldn't startt a few rides later. I then changed the ignition coil and that helped for several rides as well. Thought starting issues were done. On my last ride (2 days), starting was fine until the end of the first day when it would take longer and longer to start. By the second day it would take several tries, and I could hear the e-starter sound slowing down. I had to kick it once or twice. Fast forward a few days and when I start it in the AM (the E starter noise is slower and slower) it takes several seconds but eventually fires up. A few seconds later I pop the choke back in as I normally do and the bike dies shortly after. The bike then wouldn't start with either e-start or kick. The e-starter did sound "slow"... Is this a sign of a dead battery? I'm hoping it's just the battery, but if the battery is dead, shouldn't I be able to kick it? It's happened to me before on a different bike to use the kicker several days after the battery had died and eventually drained it so much that it wouldn't start at all. However, why would the bike die after I pushed the choke back in? Idle seemed a bit slower than usual with choke on... Just wondering if this sounds like the symptoms of a battery issue or starter, low compression or...?
