2010 F4 intermittent start

So, my F4 will, occasionally, not start. Turn the key and the dash comes alive with everything normal including the neutral light working. Hit the starter button and only here a click. Solenoid. If i play with the shifter, engage first or second while holding the starter button, she'll magically start. Sometimes it'll take a few try's but, eventually, will start. The bike came with a new Shorai battery, in the box. I installed it, yes correctly, immediately as the installed battery was dead. I've checked voltage and its perfect. When it does start it starts strong. Any ideas?

I would suggest getting a new start solenoid, and at the same time go through the the main electrical connections and clean them properly then retighten.

Thumbs up ?

sounds like a loose connection in the starter interlock system

check the electrical trouble shooting guide in the manual for your bike
