I also have a Honda Harmony 1011 riding lawn mower and sometimes it is hard to start from cold start. I simply crank for 10 seconds and then wait for 10 seconds before cranking again in the choke position.  

Sounds too easy. Just a thought.

I like my mower.

I have the same problem as Steve with my Harmony 1011 - while riding it just quit and would do nothing but click. Replaced battery, fuse, relay.  Jumped wire from battery to starter and it rolled over sluggishly.  checked every thing including operating the blade control back and forth and still ger nothing but clicking.  Don't know if t is worth paying $400 on chance it might be the starter.  Any suggesting would be appreciated.
