    no. the electrolyte did not dump. the bike turn over and starts for about 1/2 second and then shuts down.

    Did you dump all of the electrolyte out of the battery when you layed it down?

Dirty air filter? anything clogging the inside of the air boot?and since u drained AND bled the radiator fluid, did u fill it back up to the top with specific dirt bike radiator fluid?pilot and or needle and main jets clogged and clean your carb. if your pilot jet is clogged you;d be kickin the bike all day. these small things will prevent your bike from starting so check them

How much oil does a ktm 450 exc hold

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
The suggested amount is 1.2 L.

You can download the owners/service manual from this site.
Just a note:
I have the same bike and 1.2l of oil will NOT register in the sight glass. I can't even see it in the bottom of the glass. SO IGNORE THE GLASS IF THIS HAPPENS AND DO NOT KEEP ADDING OIL TILL YOU SEE IT IN THE SIGHTGLASS. Add 1.2 liter if you are changing the filters, and add 1L if you are keeping the old filters in there.
Let us know if we can be of further service.
Kind regards,

How much oil does my bike hold it is a 83 suzuki gs750es.

as far as a exact amount i'm not sure, there is a oil glass on the right hand side engine cover near or on the clutch cover. there will be two lines right next to the top is full the bottom is the fill, after you drain the oil and fill, start the bike for a few sec to let the oil fill the filter after shutting the bike off let it sit before topping off this will let the oil run back to the pan so you dont over fill it. next to the fill plug on the bike for the oil there is most likely a set of numbers read something like this 2100cm 3, that is 2100 cc of oil you can get a ratio rite at any local bike shop. you can pick a service manual and get all final numbers.
Good luck my friend

KTM MXC 400 dies and don't know what kind of oil to use

Sounds like a fuel problem. Try replacing the fuel filter.
Check all the lines and the tank vent.

How much oil for a 2006 honda crf 250x?

The crankcase oil fill is the dipstick hole on the left side of the engine. It holds .73 quart. The right side fill plug is for the transmission oil. It holds .63 quart. You will need to drain the transmission oil and refill it with the correct amount of oil. The drain is located on the left lower crankcase. It is bolt/washer in the parts diagram of the link below. I recommend you purchase an owners manual or service manual for this bike as this is a high performance model that requires frequent maintenance.

Oil leak

not just a few drops. Any ideas on exactly what parts need replaced besides the seal itself?I put RTV black around the perimiter of the seal. That seemed to do the trick. That was the second time I replaced my seal. When I replaced it the first time I made it worse somehow.,
