If it fires just after you take your finger off the button, that would indicate something is drawing too much power. As in volts.
On my 79 1100 Yamaha, I removed the headlight relay, as it was not working as planned. So the headlight comes on when the key is turned on. Yami fires right away, even without a headlight cut out switch. The starter is usually the biggest current draw, or it should be.
I may have more to say after it gets closer to freezing, about my 900 Trophy.
