I have scratching my head for about 2 months now trying to figure this out. I got this bike for very cheap and it had been sitting for supposedly 6 months. I cleaned out the carbs and to put in a new fuel pump and the bike ran fine. I have riden 4 thousand miles on it since I first bought it in about 4 or 5 months. The idle is a bit low but once the bike is running there are no problems what so ever. On occation if it gets cold the bike might not start and I actually have two batteries for it because I CAN kill the battery trying to get it to start in the cold. This could be alot of things. However this is not the problem I am having. Wow can't start a new paragraph Anyway the problem I am having with the stupid bike is that sometimes when I hit the start button there is no power to the starter. Usually I can pump the clutch a few times and the bike will fire up (When it is warm outside). At night it is not so ready to get going and I have to actual short the starter relay and it fires right up. I have a suspicion that this problem has to do with the stupid pull the clutch in when you start the bike (who ever came up with that idea was a probably found in a car factory) but at this point because the problem happens then I have a few weeks with nothing then it starts again I have no idea. I have checked all the fuzes and all my cables. I have a brother go over it as well and he can't find anything out of the ordinary and just said "that is the way you gotta start it." However normally I just have to pump the clutch 2 ato 5 times and it fires up... Lately now that it is dropping down into the low 60tys at night I am walking home from work.... Any help would really be good because I have to ride this stupid bike 700 miles in 5 days...
