I have a 1999 F4, which I keep garaged... whenever I try to ride my baby, it gets upset and refuses to start. I hear the egine make a dying attempt to turn and then it dies (even with the choke on). Basically, I have to put it in gear and push it until I get up to jogging speed, then I press the starter and it comes one (but not always on the first try). I am in Arizona, and it's unseasonable cold right now, so I think that has something to do with it. But it's a Honda (my second one, and I had no such problems with my F3), and I would expect more. Besides, none of my friends (all in my area) have the same problem. Their bikes start right up in the same weather (about 50-60 degrees most days) and they are riding R1's, GSXR 750's and Kawa 6000's.
Any opinions on what might be wrong? And/Or suggestion on how to fix it?
As I type this I am at work, and waiting for the fine young ladies outside to leave so they don't have to see me pushing my bike up the street to get it started.
