Well, the bike will be ready to pick up tomorrow. They've replaced the injectors and remapped the ECM. At last phone call they have not worked on (or fixed) the fuel gauge. I didn't really hold out much hope for that happening but I thought, "Hell, its under warranty, give it a shot". They did find the noise and nobody guessed right - including me.
It was the starter. It wasn't pulling back until something helped it release - heat, pulling in the clutch, something that would bother it enough to cause it to retract. Interesting, I never even considered that since the starter wasn't actually running - it was just spinning the shaft because it hadn't pulled back. Horrible noise, by the way, if you ever hear it.
So, the bike will be picked up tomorrow and now with the new injectors/remap I'll schedule a dyno tune in a couple of weeks over in Mississippi.
Even though nobody hit this one on the head I really did appreciate all your help. But since there was no winner I guess I'll just keep the new Ferrari instead of awarding it. :D
