    No, the problem has not gone away.

    I am awaiting the arrival of an Antigravity battery. My hope is it will have enough cranking power to start the motor.

    It might not fix the problem but it will hopefully be a workable solution.

    I installed an Antigravity in my ST and the bike started right up. Hopefully, that resolves the hard start issue.

    Impressive! Now if you could have only done some full throttle runs and got that fuel mileage number down to 22.2 mpg. :-)

    It’s an old joke about picking 22 on the roulette wheel. I don’t know where it started though. When I saw all the 2’s its what I thought of.

    One of my absolute, all time favorite movies. A bit dated but still pretty hilarious. Albert Brooks at his best.
