Good to know, thank you. Im sure if I toss in a new Shorai battery, my starting will be a little more consistent.

What about that technical bulletin noted on the other thread? Upgrading the gauge of the wires.

I have been working on Gassers in Australia since about '02. I love the bikes to death and this 2018 update/revamp is so good I went out and bought one!
One test ride and I was hooked. Kyb's and that grunty 300 motor

On the starter issue, from what I have seen Is like the Mark from GG has said it is not all bikes that are affected. I have seen the 'spin all day long but not start' fault (as if no spark) and the usual effects all two stroke starter motor 'stall when the battery/motor seems to struggle to get past tdc.' This one was simply overcome by another stab of the starter button.
From what I have seen is the main battery earth doesn't go to the starter motor like previous gassy's so adding a earth strap is one thing owners could do to eliminate voltage drop. And the bike that previously had the fault had it's cdi swapped between a few others and since then never failed to start.. so maybe just a dirty cdi plug. Also worth a try.
I am sure these things will be/should be checked by your dealers but worth mentioning.

I missed all the drama! I?ve been too busy riding this amazing bike. I?m having the starting problem as well but I haven?t taken it to the dealer because I can?t stop riding it! This hasn?t bothered me much, especially after I rode with a friend and his battery died on his new beta. It doesn?t have a kicker! 🤦*♂️
