I'll buy that!

Just my electronically challenged self again, but why would those problems present more in the heat? I can't even venture a guess, but maybe some electrician [Foxhound!] could provide an explanation?

stinky skunk Well my macanic said that the starter end cap was was cracked in many places. And he believes that once the engine is hot the withthat crack the starter is not drawing enough power? What do you think?

Dianna When I had starter problems, my starter did nothing when trying to hot start.
I'd push the button and get click click click.
I'd put the bike in gear, rock it back and forth (to get past the bad spot on th starter, and try again. She'd fire up then or after a couple of tries of doing the same.

bj31702 Does your starter drag or barely turn over your engine when it is hot?

Mine does!

fergy Does your starter drag or barely turn over your engine when it is hot? If not, if it turns over normally but your engine doesn't seem to want to fire, then it's probably not your starter. Have you relocated your r/r? Have you volt tested your battery and your coil power wires to make sure you aren't losing some voltage through the connections?

stinky skunk If the starter was going could that cause the warm start issue?

mgalovic I was having a good bit of starting problems before doing the mods. But now its working perfectly. The coil mod had a tremendous effect on my cold starting. I never really got a chance to test the hot starting before doing the r/r relocation. but for under $40 and a little bit of wrench time for the two mods, Its really worth it to just do both. (and for the people who think it looks intimidating, know that I'm a computer geek and other than changing oil, I've seen very little wrench time, fergy and bulldog's pages do an excellent job in guiding you through the two mods)
