So are you saying that the starter does nothing (completely silent) for the first few key turns then suddenly will work and start fine? Or are you saying that the starter spins but doesn't engage the flywheel for the first few key turns? It's hard to tell by your description, and the two problems would have very different troubleshooting paths. If it's the former, I would be looking for electrical issues (key switch, brake lever, stop switch, battery terminals, etc). The latter, I would be looking at mechanical issues (flywheel teeth, bendix teeth, starter position / alignment etc.)
