Hi All,

My bike has just been broken in (quite well done imo). I keep getting piston kicks and the engine struggles to turn-over when warm. Would anyone know what the problem could be?

Cheers

Unfortunately all r3's don't like to be turned on when warm. I notice it turns on easier if you turn the ignition switch to the on position, wait a second or two,turn your kill switch to the on position , wait another 2 seconds and try ... usually works well for me.

I will give this a go. Although I never use the kill switch, I always turn the key. Thanks.

My bike has always struggled a bit with warm restarts but has never failed to turn over. I'm not sure if it's battery related or just a weak starter.

Has anybody with an aftermarket lithium battery noticed a difference?
