Hi all, Sometimes when I press the ignition switch, it takes several seconds for the engine to fire up. Sometimes it will take two seconds, occasionally it will start even faster. Once the thing does turn over, it starts up just fine every time. But that long silent time holding the button is a bit nerve wracking... Also, when I press the ignition switch, the headlight goes off for that time. Normal? I figure that a capacitor somewhere is drawing juice to make the ignition, and am then inferring that the delay in firing up is due to the battery's weakness. But I may be completely misunderstanding... I did search. I don't have a battery charger or multimeter yet. (soon...) I have a 1999 Honda CB250 - have had it for three months. The electrics and horn seem to work okay. The headlight seems a little dim, but I don't know if that is its regular brightness. I don't ride in the dark too often. Can anyone explain what is happening?
