That could be caused by excessive endfloat on the starter motor.
Remove the motor and check it. Alternatively, the engine may be stiff to turn or a poor connection on the starter motor circuit.

Why does my starter motor not start the engine when battery power is less than 70 percent...the battery is New!

I don't know year--make--model? Use a digital multimeter across battery post, everything off. The generic spec for a full charge is around 12.6 volts. Generic info says if it gets down to 12.4 volts or less, get it charged. Check your charging system. Check flywheel teeth and starter drive gear, see if looks ok.
You can do voltage drop test for starter motor circuits. If you try that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. You may be way ahead of me with your testing? Just my opinion.

I hear the engine trying to start, but it won't, even though there's good electric power, but with a little push you can start it using the clutch, any idea?, maybe a relay?, what do you think?....

If the battery is not spinning the motor fast enough, it is not uncommon for motor to not start. Make sure that your starter motor is spinning engine over at correct speed.

OR, it is possible that the starter motor has some burnt windings resulting in less rotational speed.

Engine starts when you pop the clutch, so why won't it start when u use the starter? Check it out.

Sarter will not turn engine over

Two things cause this...a bad starter or weak battery...not sufficient Amps will not allow enough power to the starter to spin it fast enough to start the engine....a bad starter simply cannot use the power supplied it to turn the engine properly. Have some one do a load test on the battery..tests the battery simulating starting the engine. If ok it is the starter if not replace the battery..good luck.

R1200GS - Starter does kick in, turns the enjin a few times and then seems like it slips and the starter motor turns freely.

Your starter bendix possibly needs cleaning. Unfortunately these are sealed units and can only be dismantled and re-assembled with specialized equipment. They can be purchased loose.

Have a look here: Starting

My piaggio fly 100 will not sart. I have checked and changed the battery. I have had the starter checked, it is fine. I have changed the starting pinion and still the problem persists. it is turning over...

You state that you have changed the battery but did you change it for a brand new one ? It appears your batteries don't have enough power to spin the motor fast enough to start the motor.
This could also be the reason it stares OK when hot, the battery having been given a fresh charge by the alternator, Try a new battery. your local dealer will probably agree with me.

Platter/motor won't turn

I don't know the answer, but you have written one of the finest, most comprehensive problem descriptions I have come across. In mechanical scenarios, that is priceless. I'm sure a turntable guru will see it and go, "aw. I know what that is". Good Luck.

Timing 17.5 hp mower

i don't think it's a timing issue, i think the valves need to be adjusted a little tighter - if the rocker arms are too loose, the valves don't open enough and compression builds up, fighting against the starter

Car will not crank

Check battery voltage should be 12v. Have battery load tested. If good recharge, then with a voltmeter across battery terminals try to start engine. If battery voltage drops below 9.5v starter has failed.
