i charged my battery and the bike starts right up now even cold. i am running a 165 main and 48 pilot,pilot screw 1 3/4 turns out. when i plugged the battery to the charger it was practicaly dead. it took a little over 3 hours to fully charge the battery . once it was charged i hit the button and it started right up even without the choke and the bike sat for a week. i highly recommend anyone who is having starter problems to charge there batteries. i got the battery tender plus and i have to say it was a good investment .
