I live in Sherman Oaks and its been getting down to the low 30's at night and i went out yesterday to start it and it wouldn't catch....took it out and put it in the sun and after a couple of hours I went out and it started......this morning tried the same thing...wouldn't catch and so i put it out in the sun but to know avail.

The battery is not that old and I recently had it serviced at Crago Racing....I have had this issue before but not for a couple of years.

thanks

Many '09+ R1's do this when cold, the only thing that has prevented this 100% of the time on my '12 R1, was charging the battery with a Battery Tender for 1-1/2 hours before attempting a cold start. Bike would start instantly every time, where otherwise it would take 2-3 separate attempts. The weak smallish sized stock battery is the real issue IMO.
