Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, determine if there is a clicking sound when the START button is pressed. The click is significant. If there is, this indicates that the starting relay is engaging but for some reason, the starter motor is not cranking. This could either indicate a faulty starter relay (particularly the contacts) or a faulty starter motor (specifically, the carbon brushes). To determine which:

  • with the side covers off, expose the starter relay particularly the 2 large terminals;
  • have somebody start the bike normally using the key and button start switch;
  • determine if indeed the clicking is coming from the starter relay;
  • while the start button is still pressed, jump the 2 big terminals;
  • if the engine cranks, then the internal contacts of the starter relay are corroded or burned;
  • if the engine will not crank, then the starter motor is faulty.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I turned on duke 200 and as soon as i removed the stand! The display went off. Since then, nothing is shown on the display and the bike does bot even start. Just wondering what could be the fault?


Hi, Malkeet and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary, 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.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
10. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Ktm 400 battery won't keep it's charge


Sounds like your stator is shot. That usually happens when you run it with a dead battery. Stator over works

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
This is not an uncommon behavior and we need to locate the source of the problem and eliminate the things that are not effecting the issue.
Most probable causes: Battery, Starter Relay, Start Button, Starter.
Manually start the bike and take it for a good rip and see if the battery takes/holds a good charge for the rest of the day. If you don't have trouble starting through out the day then it's a good chance you may need to replace the battery. Recommend the use of a trickle charger to keep the charge up during the week when bikes in the garage. Part# 53 Frame Parts/Wiring Harness.http://cyclehuttktm.com/FicheFinderNew/FicheFinder.aspx
If your battery is known to be new or has a good charge, do you often hear a clicking sound. It might indicate your starter relay is wearing out or you have a short. Trace the wire harness and confirm insulation wear.Check starter wire and confirm the nut's tight with a good star washer. If relay - replace it. Part Number #58 Frame/Wiring Harness http://cyclehuttktm.com/FicheFinderNew/FicheFinder.aspx
If the battery is known good and the relay pulls in but the starter won't engage and you can hear it attempting you may have an issue with the starter being in a bind from some internal obstruction or just plain worn out. Pull it and check it. See if it engages off the frame. You may have to take it to an alternator shop and have it re-wound. New ones are spendy.http://cyclehuttktm.com/FicheFinderNew/FicheFinder.aspx
Starter Control Button: Reseat the connection and confirm it's engaging the relay. Part Number #69 chassis/Handlebar Controls. http://cyclehuttktm.com/FicheFinderNew/FicheFinder.aspx
Hope this helps you resolve your starting issue. If we can provide further assistance please advise,
Best regards,
TF

Check to make sure the battery is fully charged and that the fuses are all good. If you push the starter button and the solenoid clicks, the button is good. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together, if your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you need to replace the starter assembly , unless the manufacturer sells replacement parts so you can repair the starter. most manufacturers only sell replacement starter brushes but no other internal starter parts.

My bike wont start


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.
Any ideas?
