Question about 2005 KTM EXC 200 Usa
I just bought the biek and it would start on first kick i took the bike home and ran it for about 25 mins it was great then i noticed i needed to add gas so i mixed it 32:1 when it needed 44:1 so it falled the plug. then i took and ran it again for about 20 mins the next time and it didnt idel so i took the carbrator apart and it was dirty. so i cleaned the carb and put it together it ran for a bit then just stoped starting. after that i pulled it all back apart and found it was dirty again so i cleaned everything with carb cleaner i even cleaned the filter and the filter box and took off the gas inserted and draned the tank and found it had stuff in the tank. i put it all back together and now the bike wont even try to start
Hi, Aw98628 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. A severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
13. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
14. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
15. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
16. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
17. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
18. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
19. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
20. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
21. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
22. Check for engine trouble codes.

SOURCE: wont start
Oil from the breather is an indicator of compression bypassing the rings. This causes sump compression.
Cause of the problem is worn rings.
You need to conduct a compression test, if the compression is low then rings are probably the cause of the bike not starting.

If it's a real bugger to kick start, install an 09 cam, works wonders. Go to KTMtalk.com to inquire about emissions removal

SOURCE: kick start is jammed
Put the bike in 3rd, 4th or 5th gear, the higher the better. Sit on the bike, with your hand off the clutch lever, and rock the bike back and forth to rotate the clutch hub. This might free up the lever. You will need to drain the oil and remove the right side casing to see and service the kick starter. If I recall correctly, there is a spring clip that allows the kick gear to engage the clutch hub. The piece could be broken, weak or out of position.
Please rate this answer. Thanks Shay!

first you need to remove carb clean them , then new gaskets . sounds like they are glazed due to old fuel drain tank and refill with new fuel

First KTM's are great bikes and are reliable.
Second don't adjust the carb unless you know what your doing.
Third it's a thumper....ie big single cylinder and is also a dirt bike.
So with that being said, if your riding it on the street it's going to overheat and if your riding in tight woods is will overheat as well. The puke hose goes to the frame between the radiators and is a messy location in the event of coolant loss. Most riders make the mistake adjusting thiers carbs when that is usually Not the problem. Unless you've installed an exhaust system or live at high altitude you do not need to adjust anything on the carb Except maybe the IDLE stop screw.
For overheating: KTM has a great add on electric fan kit that will help greatly. Also use Engine Ice or at least Water Wetter for better cooling performance. This costs more but is my favorite....buy some Evans NPG coolant and never boil over again!
Lastly, I'm a huge Husky fan but buying that next is like moving sideways, it's still a 4-stroke. Note... KTM's and Husaberg's (the original husqvarna) are made in the SAME Factory.
