Some of the users have rwported no start issue. I experienced the same thing. Lots of crank, no fire. I tried everything I could think of, cycling all the switchs etc. Put it on the trailer and took it to my buddy who has had two Varaderos and put over 100,000k on each. He walked up to the bike, pressed the kill switch ever so slightly off the run position and it fired right up. I was so pissed I could have set the bike on fire right there. He said the switch can get finicky. He dropped some special lube into the spaces between the switch and the housing and it has never happened again.
