I have the 14 and once I get her hott she will not at all fire with the button. I have to kick it. I just came across this thread today and Im going to call b&b cycles tomorrow to see if they can put my CO to 15 as suggested by others here. I'll post up results. Btw. My 14 has 67 hard earned hours. There is no problem starting these bikes, my 13 was exactly the same as all these guys bikes, until I read the owners manual. Just like my dealer told me you have to crack the throttle open just slightly and it fires up every time, hot, cold, in gear ect.. The problem is if you don't remember to do this every time you'll have problems. I posted this back several pages ago but nobody read it. There are 2 lines on the throttle control housing. The grip has a line on it, it's actually the line that gets made when the grip was molded in 2 halves. They install the grip at the 1st top line abs you supposed to turn the throttle just slightly to the second bottom line. It literally feels like your just putting tension on the throttle cable. ITS THAT SENSITIVE! But in fact you are opening the throttle slightly. I know it sounds dumb, and I know it doesn't make any sence and I know the guys reading this will think I'm full of it but hopefully they will stop trying to analyze and just try it. I read someone mentioned here turning up the idle helped. I'm not surprised. If you turn it up far enough you'll hit the sweet spot and it will start every time. I like my idle at 1700 rpm. But if you don't follow the instructions to the letter, wait for fuel pump to stop, slight turn, start! You'll have problems even if you do it right a second time. If you hold it open to far it won't start. If you use no throttle, it won't start initially but will eventually start. And you cannot start, then try to find the sweet spot with the throttle, it will not start that way. You have to start over by putting the grip at the bottom line and try again. I've had my bike over a year and over 1500 miles on it and I just live it. Starts first try every time. My bike has had the cams re-degreed, custom tune and fmf exhaust, comp ecu Hardly stock. But still fires up first try 99% of the time. This thread frustrates me because even the mechanics won't take the time to read the manual and discover how to start these bikes Everyone wants to try to fix it by means of programming and it's really not that big of a deal.
