Next time you have the same problem, jump your battery with a known "hot" one. If starting easy under that condition . . . likely bad battery.
Sometimes, battery voltage appears sufficient, but . . . under load, one or more battery cells tanks, can't deliver the current needed by the starter motor.
To your advantage, a KLR the age of yours will push-start and run with no battery at all . . .
