Intermittent starting problem
This morning I left for work on my 919 stopped and filled the tank then rode about 7 miles and stopped for breakfast when I came out the bike would turn over but not start. I checked the kill switch. I tried it with the kick stand up and in neutral with the clutch in. The battery seemed to be fully charged. I cranked it several times until the battery drained. Called the wife and she brought the truck, ramps and straps. Got home and hooked it up to the battery tender and after just a couple minutes it fired right up.
Once before I went to start it after getting gas and it would not start right away. But that time it did finally start before completly draining the battery.
I don't know if it is just a coincidence that I've had this happen twice only after getting gas.
