V Star 1300 Starting Procedure
Okay, maybe a dumb question but...
On my old V Star 1100, there was proper starting procedure to avoid mucking up the starter clutch. Put shortly, hold the starter button in until the engine is fully engaged/running.
On my '07 VS 1300, the manual says to not crank more than 10 seconds. With fuel injection and all, no choke, etc. it seems to start more... well... readily. But was that starter clutch somehow redesigned? Am I still risking a not-fun, not-cheap repair if I don't keep that starter button pushed down until everything's going properly?
