Default Difficult to start YS FZ115WS by electirc starter

I have used 4 OS engine in past 5 yeas, and i use the same electric starter. This month, I buy my 1st YS engine-YS FZ115WS.
When I start this engine, I find sometime my electric starter canít rotate the spinner. But my starter is for 160 glow engine , and this engine is just 115. I try to rotate engine by my hand, and I feel it's more tight than OS engine. So I hope to ask what's the issue ? And what's about your advice?

Default Ys FZ

Turn the engine backwards several compression strokes to be sure there is no fuel in combustion chamber(by hand) Then turn backwards until you feel compression , then apply starter. Should start within 2 seconds.

I had the same trouble with my YS engines. After tslking with Robert YS engines US, I changed from a three cell battery to four to spin the starter faster. This resolved my issue.
