Guys,
My 1990 ZX10 is hard to start after a few days of being parked (More than 2). It tries to turn over but just will not fire. If I jump start it it will start just fine. Then no problems for the day of use, will start just fine till I park it again for a few days. Battery is only a few months old and reads a good charge when off. What could this be?

Could still be the battery, especially if it starts fine when jumped. Some batteries just come bad from the factory. Take it back to where you got it and see if they'll replace it.

Yeah - I've seen toys do postively strange things with a low battery.. things you'd never really expect at all (gee, isn't that nice and vauge?).
Starting with it's as good a place as any.
