I would have used a different word than moody, but I don't own one.

What happened to the startup sequence you had going? Something like twist the throttle fully, wait 3 seconds and it fires?

It started easier when it was started daily. Perhaps I've forgotten my startup process and need to remind myself step by step. It shouldn't be this difficult to start a bike, I should build a motoGP style roller starter.

My 426 is a pita to start. If follow the steps for start-up it will fire after 3-4 kicks. Once warmed it starts right away.

no kickstart. Electric only.
I realized what I was doing wrong.

choke
twist 2x
release compression
clutch
push the button

I was twisting 2x first then choke = flooded
