Greetings from the Philippines. I have a 2005 lc4 adventure. It has about 4000 km on it and purchased it last August. Because I did not check the battery installed (imarflex brand) i used the bike with that battery. of course it had difficulty starting. it did not have enough power to crank the engine and the local mechanic says because of that it damaged my starter gear bearing and starter gear. I've installed a new bearing and gear and a yuasa battery 10 s model. I noticed the improved difference but it still would not start in one click most of the time (in the mornings its never one click) plus you have to give it some gas. I also noticed that when im driving and start to slow down sometimes the engine dies. I had another mechanic check the bike and he says that the metal end of the choke cable is damaged which causes gas to continue to flow into the carbs. He also thinks that camshaft is almost busted because of cranking it with a weak battery. He recommends that these be changed. Needing your help in confirming this diagnosis because I can't believe that the camshaft has to be changed especially after only running 4000kms. Thanks for your help. Cheers.
