Bad starter or relay
Rode my bike to work as usual. Started her up after work, warmed it up, Rode half a mile to the gas station. Went to start her up and nothing. The lights are on, fuel pump primes but its like the starter is totally dead. No normal clicking noise or anything. Checked all connections on the battery, starter, switch's, kickstand... nothing worked. I keep checking and checking and eventually the bike starts and i ride home. Thinking that maybe the battery was dead, i hook up to a car battery and still nothing but it basically dark so i gave up for the night. I get up the next morning and it fires right up. I turn it off and it starts back up immediately. I ride to work, turn it off and again nothing. I come back out at lunch and it fires right up. Turn it off and it starts back up again. I come out for the end of the night to go home, fires right up. I ride home, turn it off and again Nothing. I once again think maybe some connections could be bad. No loose wires, kickstand nothing works. I bring out the car again to possible check the battery and the connections to the battery and still nothing. I keep trying and trying until eventually it starts up. I ride around the block come back, turn it off and again nothing. So now I just keep trying it every so often without making any changes to anything. When the bike gets below 140, It will start no problem. Anything about 142-145, nothing.
I've seen something like this happen with a starter on a car, but i'm wondering if anyone else has had this issue or can provide some type of input as to what could be causing this as it seem to be temp and starter related.
