Tried to keep her in 3rd gear as much as possible as to focus on the turns, rather than shifting

Experienced intermittent starter engine issues (Y/N/maybe....) , despite new battery and R/R.

 

Aye, this is old skool 2.0

Could also be the starter motor bushes need replacing. Easy job and you can get kits on Ebay. You can test for this by connecting the thick cable straight to a battery and see if it cranks.

Need a bit more input..... :goofy:

 

Which thick cables (the ones affixed to the relay) and what should I (or not) expect to happen/hear differently?

The thick cable that goes under the right side of the engine to the starter motor. Alternatively take off the fairing, peel back the boot where the aforementioned cable bolts to the starter and connect the positive from a spare battery. Be prepared for sparks and make sure bike is in neutral or on centre stand.

If the starter motor doesn't immediately turn then the bushes probably need to changed. If  this happens disconnect quickly because without a back emf the windings will pull a huge current and fry the motor. But it will be fun either way.
