  7. KFX400 starting issue

    Kawasaki KFX450/KFX400
    Everytime I go to start the quad by the starter the engine will just turn over. But it will start fine everytime I pop start it and will run fine. Does anyone know why this happens? Is it possibly I need to give my battery a charge? Thank you.

I have the gas switch in the ON position but there is also an RES position and I'm not sure what that...

    Kawasaki KFX450/KFX400
    I have a 2008 KFX 450r that has had a hard time starting cold ever since I got it. I had read that this was a common problem but would go away once the bike was broke in.
