Default Starter issues when cold

When I start my bike cold, I hit the starter button and hear a loud pop noise. Right after that, if I hit the button again my engine won't turn over and I see the lights dim while the button is depressed. There may be a click but I don't remember. After that, I keep spamming the starter button and eventually it fires right up. Battery is not the issue.

I read on Reddit that it may be power arcing to ground from somewhere?

Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
