SOURCE: 2008 ktm 530 hard starting, hard to kick start, remove emissions

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: new spark plugs last 10-15 minutes of riding

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, the only factor to be checked that could foul a sparkplug for your bike would be the 2T oil injector/pump. There is too much 2T oil going to the combustion chamber. Either the injector would require restricting or for some reason, there is also 2T oil in the fuel tank (pre-mix).

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

SOURCE: how much oils should i put in my ktm 250 sx 2

2 stroke Mx bikes generally have(one or more of) four different methods of checking gearbox oil level.
The most common way to know is it is usually stamped on the clutch cover near the oil filler plug. It will read in CC's. 1cc equils 1ml. Sometimes they have an oil dipstick attatched to the filler plug. They have two lines on them. The bottom line is the lower level, the upper line is the full level.
The third style is an oil window situated at the bottom rear of the clutch cover, again with a high & low mark.
The fourth style is a bolt or screw on the clutch cover(with a alloy/copper/fibre washer behind it. For this type you remove the screw & fill thec gearbox untill oil starts to leak out of it with the bike upright.
Your bike will have one or more of these oil level checking systems.
If your totally unsure, ask your KTM dealer.
Hope this helps
Regards Andrew Porrelli

Remove the spark plug, put the bike in fourth or fifth gear then try a jump start but with the key turned off. If the rear wheel locks up when you jump on and release the clutch then the piston has probably seized up OR the kick start-to-clutch hub gearing is messed up. The best thing to do is to remove the left engine side cover and look at the kick start mechanism. You may need to remove the clutch assembly for a full inspection. With the clutch removed the rotor ( crankshaft flywheel ) should turn. If it will not turn then a seized piston, broken cam chain or dropped valve is likely. If the rotor does turn then the kick start mechanism is the problem. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

2003 KTM 250 SX won't start. When you kick it, it starts to fire but never turns over. I accidently put the wrong gas in it. It takes 60:1 but I didn't put enough oil in it. It died while I was riding it....


hi
If you have run the engine with too little oil then there is probably damage to the piston / rings & / or bore
Remove the exhaust to have a look

This is obviously a problem in design of the bike. Weak circuit board design creating a shallow spark or mis-timed spark, OHC timing far too radical, carb design not compatible with the bore of the bike, factory valve angles out of whack, something, or several somethings have converged in this bike. Does your state have a "Lemon Law"? Many states have this and it forces the dealer to refund your money or replace the bike. Contact the KTM Corporate office > > KTM-Sportmotorcycle AG

Ktm exc 250 hard to start recently rebuilt


timing could be slightly take the magneto casing off then remove the cylinder head when the piston is at the top of cylinder head a metal lump on the magneto should line up with the first or second marking on the casing behind the magneto, carb might need cleaning,if its been rebuilt because of piston ring blowing then maybe they didnt skim your head properly your best off takin the bike apart which really aint that differcult go up to the main engine lump and you wont have that many problems

2005 ktm 450sx not starting


I also had a bike rebuilt on the top end, which also poped when kick starting. I thought it was going to start, but never did. I used a compression tester gauge on it and found that I had 60psi instead of 100psi. I had it rebored buy a different shop and they informed me that the last shops equipment bored the cylinder oblong instead of cylindrical.
I was out the money from the first shop but I did get it fixed. Hope this helps
