You likely need a smaller pilot jet in the carb.

Try screwing the air screw in and out - if screwing it out seems to help then you need to change your pilot (low speed) jet. I don't have any recommendations for you as far as size, but just get one the next smaller size from what's in there now. When perfectly sized, your air screw will like to be set around 1.5-2.0 turns from seat.

This could also be a sign that you need a new ring. The rings don't last long in these bikes - you need to re-reing quite frequently. it's a very common thing. Lower compression from a worn ring will make the motor act as if it's too rich due to incomplete combustion and lower combustion temps. A worn ring will show up at lower engine speeds first- much like you describe.

2011 KTM 990 Adventure low beam blows and speedometer goes out


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator.
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

Do you need to lubricate anything when replacing front wheel


You should at least grease the spindle, clean the spacers and seals, if you have speedo drive fitted, apply some grease to the drive wheel area, before reasembly

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?
