New here. With a starting problem

Hi all. New here just picked up a ‘97 750 srad. Runs like a champ but it’s super slow to start cold. I live in LA so it’s not literally cold. The guy I got it from had it sitting in his collection and the battery had died. After charging and putting some miles on it, it doesn’t seem to be the battery. Turns over fine and not noticeably slow. I’m guessing something with the carbs but I want to eliminate smaller things before I start messing with it. Again it runs hard no sputtering, stalling or anything indicative of a fueling issue once she’s goin. Ps. Repair manual is on its way from amazon. And by NEW, I mean first street bike ever so yeah. Thanks for the help.

Re: New here. With a starting problem

750 for a first bike is not a good choice. Start on something smaller.

Re: New here. With a starting problem

How have you determined that "it doesnít seem to be the battery", which is what the history and symptoms seem to be pointing to? Try searching the forum for words like "battery measurement DMM".

I don’t have the luxury of buying a smaller bike now and a bigger one later but you’re right. She was scary at first. The battery was dead. Now it’s not and cranks strong. I’m gonna test it anyway but That’s how I know. I’ll post it in the right place. My bad.
