F650GS Starting Issue

When I start my bike for the first time on a given day it fires right up, no problems. Then, after riding for 15-20 minutes, I happened to stall it because I'm still getting used to it. The problem is when I go to restart it after the stall it doesn't start. The starter makes a quick click sound and I take my finger off the starter button. Then I try again and it doesn't even make a noise. Then I try again and the starter makes a noise but doesn't start. Eventually it fires up. The bike was in first gear with the clutch engaged, obviously. Any help would be appreciated. I have 3 months left on the warranty but I'd like to show up at the dealer with some knowledge. If you think it's something the dealer needs to fix.
Thanks for your help

I purposely stalled the bike and waited a few seconds for the computer to run through the start up sequence and it started right up. Apparently if the bike stalls and you immediately try to start it without giving the start up sequence a chance to run it'll give you fits. Or maybe I just got lucky, who knows.

If you stall it at a light, pull the clutch and open the throttle a bit as you crank. No point causing a scene in an intersection. When stalled, it has unburnt fuel in it and needs more air.

Simple.
