    REVISED, Bike seems to crank longer before starting

    So, I noticed when i go to start my bike,( after its cold ) it seems to crank longer then usual before it fires up, bike runs fine, no issue's, when i turn the key on, I do Hear the fuel pump turn on.. Example, it used to crank say 3-5 time,'s then fire up, now its like 8 plus every morning.. It does Not crank slow, and its only after its been sitting basically 4-5 plus hrs, after work tonight, it was cranking and after about 8 times i twisted the throttle and it fired up.. (not sure if that was coincidence or not)Any thoughts ??? 2006 Cbr 1000rr

    Most of the time it's your battery starting to go. Had that issue with my R1 so I changed the battery and not only did it crank faster it always started on the first try.

    it doesnt appear to be slow cranking at all, Sounds like its cranking fine, just appears to take more cranks to fire up
