2009 Ultra 260x having starting issues
I just bought a new 2009 Ultra 260X aand took it out last weekend. We ran for 2 to 3 hours shutting down to chill or have a cold one. I had to hold the starter down for 5 to 9 seconds till it finally fired off a few times. Anybody have any issues like this?

my 12f is doing the same thing, i think its the battery but it may be the starter... Try getting a new battery.

how fast does it crank? like normal or slow? does the dash flash? one thing you may try that really helped with my ski before the battery crapped out was to hit the starter button for less than 1 second, then let it sit and fire it again

No flashing dash...cranks the same as before...i might not have held the start button down long enough and then went back for another crank and it would not crank...let it sit for 2-3 minutes and then fired right up....gonna take it out this weekend to coleto lake and keep my cell phone handy...

I recommend you do nothing as the problem just simply goes away between 20 and 30 hrs.If you type in the search section Balky start you will find some discussions about the issue.
