False Starts?

Just had the 20,000 Km service done on my 2018 GSA at my Dealer. The valves did not require adjustment.

Yesterday I went to start the bike, it started, ran for about 5 seconds then shut off. I repeated this twice more and on the third attempt the bike stayed running.

I rode it for about 320Kms with several start stops during the day without issue.

This also occurred 2 days prior, with only one false start

This is a new experience for me. Is there something I can check before calling the dealer. The dealer is a 3.5 hr ride and I usually get a hotel for the night so I don't want to go there if there is no option.

A wish is a desire without an attempt.
