Question about 2008 KTM 990 Adventure
I keep my bike outside and have not started it in several days and now it wont start.
The battery is fully charged and there is plenty of fuel but due to the cold weather and me having to keep the bike outside under covers it has developed a problem starting.
The computer starts up as normal then when you try to start it tries to turn over then cuts out without starting and cycles through the computer start up period.
Can you help
I have the same problem and same model (2008 KTM Adventure 990 S) so injection, not carburator.
I didn't start the engine for three months. I bought a brand new battery. Lights, fuel pump and everything seemed to be ok at the first key turn. But when you try to turn it even more to definitely start the engine, ignition fails. I think the electric engine of the starter is not working properly.
I tried to start the engine driving down the slope and releasing the clutch in 2nd gear at aprox 30 km/h and it started successfully.
I left it idle until became hot (15 min aprox) and the turned it off.
however it didn't start again when trying the ignition button.

Take the bowl off the carb and clean it out water might have got in.
