I bought my bike new and it currently has 15,000 miles on her. I dont water wash but, i have got caught 2 x in the rain since ownership. Over the last few days whether the engine is hot or cold, i try to start it i push the starter button and there is a 2 to 4 second delay before cranking. The gages do there sweep like normal when i turn the key on. Head light appears to be bright when the key in on. After the delays starting it cranks normal. I have checked for loose connections, nothing appears to be loose. I am wondering if may be it is the beginning of the battery getting weak. Because sometimes it does crank faster then other times. While the bike was still under warrenty i tried to get the dealer ship to give me a new battery. I bought the bike as a left over model in 2012. My gen 2 has never cranked as good as my gen 1. Just was wondering if i am looking for a new battery in the near future. Give me some suggestions.
