Your 05`er is doing this too?? I very much doubt it`s electrical related. The bike seems to get very sluggish engine-wise when it`s hot(fan temperature...) so maybe it has something to do with it not wanting to turn over in this condition??

Does your bike bump-start(eliminating the starter) when it doesn`t fire from the switch??

I am yet to have my 04 fault this way, but it CERTAINLY turns over heaps slower when it`s hot.
Say, for example, I need to lube the chain after a track session, the bike has it`s fan on from returning to the pits at low speed. The starter button turns he engine over, but it only turns over about 1/3 the speed of a normal temperature start. I can see how some bikes wouldn`t start at all in this situation(mine barely does...).

Very odd. ???

I bump start the bike when battery cannot turn the starter.
I notice 1/3 starter turning speed quite some time when fan temperature reach. Recently, the problem getting worse because battery deteriorates slightly.

Maybe next time the bke is hot when you get home, whip the seat off and check the battery with a voltmeter.
That will give us a diagnosis of whether it`s electrical or not.

During the winter, I started the habit of plugging in the Battery Tender Junior every night to keep the battery 100%, and the problem seems to have disappeared.  Granted we have not had any real hot days here in CT since last Summer when I first had this problem.  I will reserve judgement until this Summer.  If I can go through July and August without this problem resurfacing, knock on wood, I can say with confidence that the problem has been solved.
