I will listen to the video again when I am in a quieter place, but it doesn't sound like the engine is turning over. That tells me it is probably a problem with the battery (best case scenario), or the starter motor. My first 2 checks would be: Get the battery tested at an auto parts store Try jumping the bike using a car battery. Car red (+) terminal to ...

The connection between the cable and battery terminal connector on either the positive or negative cable may be corroded. It may even be ...

If the ECU thinks the engine is cold starting when it is in fact not, then air-fuel ratio will be too rich. Depending on sensors available, I guess one of the oil ...

You might want to look into your starter-motor. When it's hot outside the metal from your engine expands. Making it harder for the starter to turn it around. If it turns around with no problem it could be that the resistance of the starter-motor is to high making the power for the ignition curcuit to low. If the problem isn't there, you should look at the ...
