Bike sounds like it starts slow.

I can't really explain what I'm trying to explain (lol) so I'll try the best as I can. I went out riding this weekend with a few of my buddies and as we were all starting our bike, theirs sounded like it started up a lot quicker than mine. My bike seemed to lag a bit as it was trying to start. I can't explain the sound but their engine sounded like it was starting up quick while mine sounded like it was lagging. Does the battery need to be replaced? Or am I just making a big deal out of nothing?

could be a weak battery, bad fuel pump or a dirty fuel filter. I would start by testing the battery when you turn it on, in idle, and at 5k rpms.

The bike starts fine. It just kinda bugs me how slow it starts compared to my friends bikes. They all have CBR's as well. Lets say their bikes start up in about 2 seconds, mine will start in four. If that makes any sense. It has a slow turnover compared to theirs.

Yes I do. Does that cause the problems? As I mentioned though all my friend rides with highs on too and their seems to start faster than mine.

I kept forgetting to take a video, but here it is:

I don't know if I'm making a big deal out of nothing but if you notice how the bike starts, it seems like it lags a bit compared to my friends bikes. Also is the bike idling like that because the RPM idle is set too low? I'm not sure where exactly its supposed to be at.

Starts fine if your not idling at 1200-1500 go for a ride, come back and adjust the idler screw just a bit. Give it a couple of revs and see where it sits then.

Will do. So 1200-1500 is the norm idle? I raised the idler screw a little higher because the idle was kinda bugging me out.
