Well for example I went riding today and all last night i had it on a charger. I go out today get to the track and it starts up no problem, i go riding and lay it down try to start it and it wont start I try using the choke and everything. So take all my energy to push it up a hill and push start it, get it going and i take a break starts right up. Ride a little stall it, wont start. Im trying to start it and it pretty much kills the battery every time before i turn to push starting it.

Got it.

One more question, have you kept up on the valve adjustment interval?

The reason being, on my 450 exc, when I had not adjusted the valves
and the exhaust were tight, I had to kick start it as it would not electric
start.

I have that same problem with my bike,
Brand new bike at that,2011 sxf 450.
I to would love some info on this if anyone can help.
I'm sure it's mostly my inexperience with dirtbike's, but It should'nt
be that difficult to start and keep running.
