Reading through the replies to the "Starter problems" posted by Clif raised a question for me.
1) Does the starter button require routine cleaning like on the older "K" bikes? I.e. clean the copper contacts in the switch assembly.
On my 02 LT I have noticed that every so often I press the starter button and nothing. Try it again and it turns over fine. I figured just wasn't depressing the button enough. Since it has always started and turns over fine don't think it is a battery issue. Does not matter if hot or cold. Doing ERC tomorrow so this should be a test of the battery condition.
