Just noticed that this sometimes happens with my 17' 250RR. When I attempt to use the electric starter for the first time of the day when its cold out (35-40 degrees or so) it sounds like it just spins and doesnt catch at all (the bendix). Kinda of a spinning / humming noise. After a few attempts it will eventually catch and start the bike fine. So usually i just kick it for the first start of the day when its cold out.. And once its warmed up the E-start works as normal. During the spring and summer i don't notice this and the electric start works perfect every time. Just curious about this and any info is appreciated.
