2013 V Star 1300: Starts fine in the morning but after riding for awhile and I shut down, it won't immediately restart. It may turn over once and then nothing except the ominous click. Wait 5-10 minutes and it fires right up. If I push start, it'll fire up. I've replaced the battery, ensured good connections: only thing I haven't tried is trying to jump start when it won't start. Sound like a starter issue? Time to check brushes and rebuild?

Even though it's a new battery, have it load tested. They have been known to be bad occasionally.

I would check the charging system, with the engine running you should see 13.7 to 14 volts at the battery. Also when starting the battery voltage should not drop below 10 volts. Do you have added on aftermarket electrical equipment?

Check the starter ground and +. Corrosion can prevent good contact and does so when hot.
