My intruder turns over but won't start. If I rock it back and forth while in gear the it will sometimes start. Once it is started, then it runs with no problem and will start right back up. If it sits then I am back to the same issue. I was thinking compression relief or bad solenoid. I have taken it multiple times to the dealership and have only accomplished thinning out my wallet. I was reading on your site from Dr Bob, and noticed that someone else was having the same issue and he mentioned the stator. Any help or advice would be welcomed

Welcome to the forum.

How does it act when it won't start ?

The most common causes are: Weak battery, caused by an old battery or not charging (stator).
Decomp valve bad or needs adjustment.

The rocking back and forth in gear would tend to point to the decomp valve but if it just clicks once and doesn't rotate the engine at all, it could be worn out brushes on the starter too.
