2009 1198S

Mostly stock bike
Recent engine rebuild
Brand new battery - kept on battery tender

Issue: Starter seems to have difficulty turning the motor over. Frequent clunking/slapping noise. Sometimes starts in a few turns, sometimes doesn't start at all. Seems to be worse when the bike is hot. Runs fantastic once started.

This is a video of a good start - most of the time it takes quite a few more tries to get it going.
