Unless you love a kick start only bike then your starter motor is your best friend, but its nothing without a good battery and even more so, a good connection.

Over the winter your battery terminals may have corroded a little so just a quick reminder (and video) of cleaning them. Reasonably standard procedure but often overlooked, but could be the reason your bike doesn’t fire as well as you remember.

Over and above what is mentioned in the video you might also want to follow that positive lead and do the same at the other end and also made sure that the connection is solid and the terminals on both positive and negative posts don’t show any signs of stress cracks, if so obviously replace.
