So, I've been following along with this thread and others to try to sort out my starting issue. This one seems to have the most recent posts, so I've decided to reply to it over the others.
HERE'S MY ISSUE:
My 2011 DL650 (Wee) will start with no issue when cold. Once I drive it for a few miles/minutes, though, it will USUALLY not restart again. After a couple of hours, it will restart.
WHAT I'VE DONE SO FAR:
Thanks to the faithful followers of this forum, I've been successful in completing the following.
- "rebuilt" starter button - cleaned it out, roughed contacts, packed with dielectric grease
- replaced starter relay
- upgraded regulator/rectifier - probably a non-issue, but wanted to try EVERYTHING. Was curious if the warm/cold correlation had anything to do with it.
ANY IDEAS? I haven't fiddled with the clutch sensor, but didn't think it could be that since it works when cold - didn't see the correlation.
The other threads I've tried/followed (couldn't post full links, I'm a newbie):
