1098 start issue...

My 2007 1098 was stored for a year.
It started up fine with new gas.
I put 200 miles on it since then but it has been hard to start...
Battery good.
Often makes a terrible sound like metal hitting metal coming from motor.
Holding throttle wide open for 2 seconds while hitting start button seems to help light it up. But i don't like that noise.
Sometimes odometer 'zeroes out' while trying to start. Once started it runs like a champ. Last valve adjustment about 4k ago. Help and thanks, David c.

Sounds like your battery is going bad. Just get a new one ASAP. The noise is the starter clutch slipping when the crank slows down as the battery voltage drops. If you don’t get new battery right away, you’ll be replacing the battery and the starter drive clutch ($$$).
