Hey guys. I have a 2012 R1 Raven that has 8000 miles on the bike that I have a question about. When I start the bike from being cold it starts fine. But if I ride thru town and the bike is around 224 ( when the fan kicks on) temp when I turn it off and try to start it back when it is around that temp after sitting it will not start. It tries but it just ends up killing the battery and I have to roll it off. Is there some safety feature I don't know of where it will not start when too hot? I could leave it running until the fan cools it off. Thanks.

You might be getting vapor lock... basically the fuel could be turning from a liquid into a gas due to the extreme heat which can cause the bike to not start after the heat soaks through to the fuel. Insulated fuel lines might help prevent this (assuming it's the cause).

Have you ever tried priming the fuel pump a few times in a row before cranking the bike when it won't start?
