your bike is fuel injected, so its not as suseptible to bad gas or gummy carbs
but if the bike sat for a while with 10% ethanol fuel, it could still have dirty injectors. These bikes do not adjust their fuel/air ratio like a fuel injected car, the ratio is still a fixed map in the ECM.
It will only cost $8 to get a bottle of SeaFoam or another carb/fuel injector fuel additive, put it in your tank and ride a couple hundred miles and see if the bike idles better.
There is an idle control module on fuel injected bikes, that acts like a choke. The idle speed is not adjustable, but if that part is acting up, has a bad connection.. it will act like a carb'd bike with a defective choke.
Until you get this figured out, I would not keep cranking the engine hard to get it started, either park the bike on a bit of a hill an push start it / pop the clutch in 2nd gear to get it going, or maybe pull the cover off the air filter, hit it with some starting fluid spray, or an un-lit propane torch to get it started.
I dont think there are any known issues with the starters on Vstar 1300 bikes, but cranking it till a battery goes dead is begging for starter failure.
