KTM 105 SX spark plug fails every ride???

Hi, Sagi nice novella and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel mixture too rich or enrichner left out too long.
2. Faulty spark plug.
3. Incorrect spark plug for the engine type or service.
4. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
5. Valve guides are badly worn and/or seals worn, crushed or have come off the valve guide and are pumping oil through it.
6. Spark plug cable weak or leaking check for spark jump in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition coil.

1996 KTM Duke quit running while riding

ok, your problem could be simple or could be quite involved. First thing to do would be to make sure its not a safety cut out i.e. kill switch on handle bar is set to off or is malfunctioning, side stand down while in gear, no neutral light. Also is the battery good?? A poor battery can cause the bike to have no spark as it can act as a resistor and not allow 12v to flow through the system thus preventing enough current for a spark. If its not that, hears where it can get tricky. It could be a number of other things i.e. If it has an immobilizer factory fitted or via an alarm system, Coil (which is usually not the case), Generator stator and pick ups or worse case a faulty CDI/ECU. You may want to get someone who knows about bikes to take a look. Good Luck

Ktm 450 sx wont start when hot.

Had this very same problem with a KX 85 last week! Turned out funnily enough to be the spark plug. So try this first mate. If that dosn't fix it then you have the age old mechanics question "did I do somthing wrong or is it just a coincidence". Start back at your beginning next & re-check your valves.Most of these late model bikes(12000-16000rpm screamers) have titanium COATED valves. Once the coating wears off they close up valves REALLY QUICKLY!!!!! If the clearances are ok your work was good & at least it will rule out insuficient valve clearance as the cause to your problem.If it still plays up - well then I would use the process of elimination to solve the problem i.e is it electrical,fuel, or mechanical. With valves checked already a compression or leakage test would pritty well rule out the mechanical system.To test electrics on motorcycles without test equiptment & a lotof know how can be difficult & EXTREMELY DANGEROUS( shock hazard 40,000 v+). So I'll try keep it simple. On the web you can purchase ignition spark testers that will connect to any plug lead & cause the ignition system to jump a gap of 6 to 8mm.These are cheap & will test the system as a whole for its performance. Great for a quick check of any ignition system. If the spark seems fine then your left with the fuel system. check for blocked fuel tap,water in tank or carby bowl,blocked fuel filler cap vent,blocked carby vent hoses,accellerator pump function.
I hope this has been somewhat helpfull.
I am happy to help with further questions

07 KTM250exc 2 stroke wont start

Fuel becomes like a gel substance if the bike was not used for some time. There may be some gel blocking the main jet of your carburetor. If the gel formed in the tank, it may take a while to reach the carburetor. That may be why it operated without a problem for a while.

93 CBR decided not to run today

Well, depending on what your mechanical skills are, it may be tough to troubleshoot and fix your problem. I have the same exact bike, and it along with all other sport bikes are tough to work on because everything is very confined. You first have to start with the basics, Fuel, Spark, and Compression. Your going to have to get the fairings off and remove the gas tank before you test any of that. Once the tank is off, you can get access to the spark plugs and wires to do a spark test. Also while you are there, check to make sure the carb is getting sufficient fuel, or even possibly too much fuel. Leaky needle and seats in the carb bowls can cause lots of problems for starting and idling. And please don't blow yourself up! Exposed gas and spark test can equate to big flame balls if your not careful. If you need more help, I'd be willing to do what I can for you so shoot me an email at

Did you do a compression check just for the sake of saying the motor did not seize? Have you checked by grounding the spark plug to make sure there is not spark? Your problem really sounds like a seizure. You may have lost the CDI box.
