hi lootux,

your english is probably better than most here in the US lol. from what you said, i take it you can jump start the bike. the starter being "slow" would bring me to the electrical system. first make sure the battery is fully charged and check all primary electrical connections make sure they are clean and no corrosion, especially the negitive ground. hopefully you have a maintance free battery.
good luck john

if your battery is new... as mentioned above, see if its a mantinace free. if it is make sure your charging system is working fully. not sure bout over in france, but i know here you can take your battery to just bout any auto parts store and they will check it for ya.

*L* Hizzo, he translated it above

translates to french as....

Now.. as far as starting the bike..
If it starts when you put it in gear and walk it, you may have a bad spot on your starter. Mine does this every once in a while. If I try and start it and it just clicks, I put it in 1st, rock the bike back and forth and then pull in the clutch, hit the button and Vrrroooom! she starts.
There are starter rebuild kits available, or sometimes a good cleaning helps.

*LOL* Cause you don't have a "flat" spot in your starter like I do? Doesn't happen often, but enough.. maybe once every ride or so.

Red face Oups !

I was in Sweden for 2 days, so ...* sorry to be late !
fortunatelly by plane

in fact the worse weather I have seen ....
very windy, cold 3°C, and rain Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!

I live near Lyon near the alps

the batt is new but I think a standard one, I will see it, I will pick it tomorrow

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

The automatic translation is awfull, it's better to do not !!

When you say a bad spot : it means that there is a strong point just before crank ?
so like as if the starter force is not sufficient to turn the engine ? because it seems to be that !

The starter has been changed by another one wich was an used one but cleaned

and the same result.... I will make some tests more this we to see how it works exactly

Talking Yessssssss

I ride yesterday with a very good weather, it was fine, except my ass which is not use to, just for now....

For the start pb, it seems that the starter doesn't get enough power !

I will check it, but I don't know exactly how !
I though to plug directly the starter on the battery (out of the bike) and check if it runs well (as fast as it needed)

will see

If you have some advices or somethings not to do ?
