Well, the first time it hung up on me was friday when I brought it to the dealer, it was morning and pretty cold (it was standing in the garage for almost a week, but the door is always open so the temperature is equal to the outside temp) . The battery was dead after trying an unsuccesful start. (the starter didn't even roll when I pushed the starter for a second time)
I started my bike using the car battery and drove it to the dealer. Underway I had to start it again because of refueling, but that was no problem. When I went back to pick it up by the dealer also no problem.
Until now the bike was standing in my living room (I put it there directly when I came back from the dealer) . monday I pushed it outside and tried to start it, but I got the same result as 3days ago, the starter went round for 3 times but the 3th time less powerfull so the bike didn't start. The second time again nothing much (half a starter round) .
Maybe the battery wasn't enough recharged ?
Anway, I find it strange that friday evening the bike started with no problem and monday it didn't while the bike was stored on room temperature.
I'm checking the recharging system tomorrow according to the service manual.
