Start button question

I have a 2012 RG Custom. I was told that once the bike is running and when you hit the start button again nothing will happen. Is this true? When I hit mine again it tries to engage the starter.

The reason I am asking is my Indy installed new bars and I have been having some button issues. I went on a 1800 mile trip and had to see a stealer to inspect my starter issues and they told me that my model year should not be able to restart.

Thanks for any input

Mason, I have a 2012 also and if I hit the start button while it's running it tries to engage the starter also.
I thought that was normal as it also did it on prior bikes that I had.

If I hit the button while bike is already on it to will engage the starter.

That's what the START button does. Engages the starter.

Hitting the start button when the engine is already running is like hitting the brakes while your rolling on the throttle.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

As odd as that seems, my friend, might keep your
six outta a ditch, now where fores that button amateurs
should leave the "little man in the boat" alone.
