Ah yes. We are here again. I pretty much never use the e-start but tried it today because I have been wondering if it isn't a good idea to use it occasionally just to keep it operating. I don't know if this actually necessary but cannot hurt right. Lo and behold my starter is not doing anything. No noise no anything. Going to check my battery to rule that out but I ride almost everyday so I don't think that would be the problem. Any Ideas? I don't really need the starter but if ya got it, it is nice. Unless the clutch is destructing, that not nice.
