Not looking for pearls of wisdom. B3 didn't want to start this afternoon, Cranked and almost wanted to catch etc. Rinse repeat. Battery charged and Li all good etc. Not sprag clutch problem etc. So What was the last thing I did is returned from sea level to over a mile high. Long and short of this is excess pressure in fuel tank causes engine to not start and by simply opening gas tank pressure relieved and she started right up. Correlation is if bike sits, temps change significantly, something that increases pressure in fuel tank dramatically will cause engine not start. So if bike won't start do the cheap ass thing first and just open the fuel tank and let the pressure equalize and recharge the battery because you probably have been cranking the shit out of it and see what happens. Thermodynamics is a bitch:grin2:

@theknurl...it is, in fact, Thermodynamics: The Ideal Gas Law.

Granted, there is a venting issue.
