2011 KTM 250 SXF will not idle


Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

Ktm 625 wont idle when hot


Sounds like idle jets are still clogged, they are really small and unless you check them, a standard cleaning of the carbs may not clear them. I use a nylon bristle pulled from a scrub brush to **** out the pilot jets.

I have a 99 ktm 250 sx. Had to get cylinder replated and a new piston. I put the bike back together and oil was leaking from the front lower end of the cylinder and i wont idle. Took the bike back ap


If there is a leak in the head gasket it will never run properly. Maybe the carburetor is plugged if it has sat for a while. The gas/oil mixture can go bad over time. The leak could be from a loose gas line. Or possibly even oil dripping from the oil filter if you just cleaned and re-oiled it.

99 KTM BOGGS AT MID RANGE AND POPS THROUGH MUFFLER AND WONT IDLE


1. check for an intake leak in front of the carb, like broke carb gromet, carb flange o'ring/gasket leaking, or any broken or leaking vacuum lines. If the bike has been sitting for a while or has had little use, the carb is probably plugged up and needs cleaning.

My ktm 250 sx-f is stuttering when it idles. It wont stay running unless i give it a little bit of gas.


The problem is that your that your carb is taking in to much fuel mixed with air
on one side of it there are to screws you turn the flat headed one slowly and the mixer will change

Look on youtube to see what your carb is if you don't not know

Ktm 525 missfires after it gets warm


First take a look at the plug color. Should be tan to a light chocolate. White is too lean. And don't overlook the valves. Adjust as needed.

Ktm 530 /08 model has 88-100 miles on it i cant keep it running,wont start wont kick ,some times i can kick and then use electric start, if i turn it off battery seem dead, 3rd battery ,dealer is scra


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
