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 > >

08 530, very exact full on race bike with a lic. plate. If you take it to your KTM dealer and have them call technical support they can help your dealer.
The slide has to be set at 1mm from the bottom, the accelerator pump 1mm, pilot screw 1 3/4 turns out. pilot jet 45 instead of 48 2500 feet to 4000 feet don't turn the black nob on the left side of the carb, it's for setting the slide height, not for idle. If your bike starts with one kick after these adjustments but won't electric start change the tourque limiter.
