My 2000 ktm 200 will not 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.

My KTM started before winter, so I changed the spark plugs and put a new sprocket on it, and new gas. but it will not start. What could it be, or what are some troubleshooting tips?

I am assuming you didn't drain your carb prior to winterizing. So just because you put new gas in doesn't mean that you couldn't have obstructions in the carb from sitting through the winter. Remember in order to start you need 3 things:
1) Compression
2) Spark
3) Fuel

More than likely your compression is good.
Double check that you have spark.
Then confirm your carb is clean.

Starts ok when cold stalls when hot and wont re start, i have checked valve clearances

Do not twist the throttle when re-starting a hot engine. That bike floods easily. The power valve in the carb squirts gas into the cylinder with every twist of the throttle. A fresh spark plug will also help.

I have a ktm 250 exc 2001. It had a full engine rebuild in december and i have been using it day to day to go to work with the odd green land fun. last week it started putting oil out from some where up...

The gray color(if it's milky) may be water and may mean that your water pump seals are leaking. Check your radiator level, it should tell you. Be sure to replace both and check the waterpump shaft for corrosion in the seal area. If there is, replace the shaft, too, or the problem will occur again.

If you don't feel that you have water in the oil, it may be that your right crank seal is blown. This will pressurise the clutch and tranny area and likely blow oil some out of any place it can on the right side. If this is the case, the engine will have to be pulled and completely disassembled to replace your crank seals and possibly the main crank bearings.

Bikes been sitting for about 2 yrs, no use.

Most likely source of a problem will be a gummed up carb. Clean it thoroughly and drain fuel tank and replace with fresh fuel. Probably would be a good idea to check the valve lash, too.

Is fitting clutch plates to ktm exc-f 2004 a big job

Make sure to put every thing you take of in order and if needed do a drawing so that you can see what part goes where .The last part you take off will be the first part you put back on .
