Problems starting the engine

I have a Honda CB500XA for 2 years now

Very happy with it

But lately he have problems with starting

When starting i hear the engine go round, but no ignition

The dealer told me to try to start in the following sequence

Throttle full open
Start for 5 seconds

throthle normal
start

And yes then he starts

Does anyone knows what causing this

Do you smell any fuel odor?

I ask becasue this is the sequence that I would follow if the engine were flooded.


Even fuel injected engines can have a flooding problem if an injector hangs open on shut down.
I would add some fuel injector cleaner to the fuel tank and see if that helps.
