K1200GT Starting Sluggishly
Saw some posts similar to my situation (sluggish turn over) and thought I'd get some advice here. Have had '08 for two years, (previously had a K1100 that would start on a partial turn), and it's always labored to turn over, even after a new battery and being on the tender. A couple of times it's done what others described - stopped in traffic, wouldn't restart, pull over, and after a few seconds, it starts. Dealer checked electrical and said all was good, and it was charging.
Seems like it should turn over easier and smoother?
Appreciate any ideas. Many thanks!
