No power in HDX model hard starting even after running for 30 minutes. already brought it to the service center and all they did was replace a bussing behind the flywheel. and adjust the timing of the contact point. the sparkplug was also replaced but the problem is still there.

If the service center did a tune up ect., and the engine still has no power I would look at the exhaust. Sometimes the inner pipe of a muffler will collapse making it hard for the engine to blow out the burned gases. While the engine is running at about 2000 rpm, put your hand about 4" from the end of one of the exhaust pipes. Now another pipe. Is the same pressure felt on both pipes? If the pressure on all the pipes is unequal that pretty much tells the story. To be sure, if you can disconnect all the exhaust pipes then ride down the street & back and the bike just got the power back then it the exhaust pipe is definitly the problem. Hope this helps.

Starts stalls

contaminated or water in the fuel is most likely the culprit here.
drain the tank and carb (small screw at bottom of carb float bowl)
Add fresh fuel from a CLEAN fuel source. Best to completely drain your fuel can and fill it up with fresh fuel. That way if the fuel can is the culprit you eliminated doing this twice.
What happened was fuel sits on top of water, this is why the bike would still idle. The idle circuit in the carb pulls fuel from a higher point than the main jet. This is also why when you hit the throttle it would just die, it was sucking most like something other than fuel.

have you checked to see what the fuel pressure is? I have a 2002 ultra classic and it just got where it wouldn't hardly run. Fuel pressure is supposed to be between 55-63 psi. Mine was 30. I changed fuel filter and regulator and went from 30 to 63.

if the plug is sooty your float is set wrong the air filter should have oil on it to catch dirt.sounds like a carb problem although it could be the power valve

Hello I am having problems with my 2004 kawasaki kx 250f. The biggest problem of it all is that I am afraid of running the bike because I do not want to blow a head gasket. When started up the bike...

Starting problems on your bike are usually related to twisting the throttle too often. Remember, the carb has a diaphragm pump in it that gives a shot of gas each time the throttle is twisted. That means the engine can flood quickly if you get happy on the gas. Gently use the kickstart lever to ease the piston just past top center on the compression stroke. Now give a good strong kick. Repeat as needed.

Ktm 950 enduro runs fine for 30 km then dies as if no fuel.give it five minutes and will run fine. bike has now 20000km

possible issue on timing and or internal overheating.

KTMs vtwin timing is a little hard to decipher so i rather you have your bike brought to a KTM service center for overhauling.

please do not use the bike before it gets repaired. this king of issue may damage your cylinder
