Hard starting issue is well documented on the CBR 500 site. Many had an issue with perfect batteries turning the engine over, but it still does not start. So those are not battery cranking capacity related - eg. no slow cranking.
On those ocasions change of the sidestand sensor helped.  Conclusion was, that even with a faulty sensor the bine will ceank, but ignition is blocked thus the no start condition.

If it cranks the battery is good enough. Engine starting and turning over are two different things. If it cranks but does not start there an issue other than the battery. As I stated I have had issues with the clutch switch and the stand switch ( cheap enough to replace ) maybe its the neutral safety switch. Either way I have the original 2014 battery in the bike and after replacing the above mentioned switchs I dont have a starting issue anymore.

It took three tries today and the bike sat in a heated parking garage, probably about 45F, for about 10 hours. It was a wet day, and traffic has been particularly hellish during my recent drives, especially so this morning.  I just don't know, the starting has been so inconstant.

Same reason why you get a check engine light come on in your car a few days before you go to sell it. If it exists, it spites.  :008:

If you are able, disconnect the side stand switch at the connector plug and join the two wires, as there may well be a lazy side stand switch giving you intermittent contact. Bear in mind , the ignition starting  system goes via that switch.
Just a simple suggestion.

Does it turn over with the side stand down?

It turns over, but the ignition is cut.

In fact if one looks carefully at the wiring diagram, the sidestand switch goes to the ECU, which might falsely detect sidestand state if the switch is misbehaving.

Mine does not turn over with the side stand down, the bike in gear and the clutch pulled.  It will also die if the side stand is lowered while the bike is running, in gear and the clutch pulled.

I recall another thread on here with starting issues that turned out to be the neutral switch.  Its worth checking out.
