Brand new from the dealer? Don't mess with it if so, make them fix it. From what I've read, it may just be the fuel mixture is too rich.

Hi, Ian and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.

5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module

2014 KTM 250 SX plug fouling


air filter dirty can cause it to run rich. Should be cleaned every 10 hours of riding.
Mix should be at 40:1 in winter and 36:1 in summer. Use a ratio right dont guess on the mix.

Finally - get a JD jetting kit and install it! Crucial for all ktm bikes.

Curious what jetting are you currently running>

Ktm 85 2014 wont start seems to be flooding, just purchased yesterday and was fine, then last night it suddenly won't start, like its flooding? Any suggestions?


Could be. Did you turn the fuel valve off last night?
Try starting with no choke holding throttle open about half way..

Why doesn't my 2007 ktm 125 sx idle


Check inline fuel filter ( if you installed one) and the one on the top of the petcock in the tank. Then clean all of the carb and jets too. There is a special wire tool made by companies like k&l for cleaning inside of jets. Usefresh gas to and make sure the premix ratio is correct. Clean air filter while you are at it, and replace spark plug after checking the gap.

Ran out of gas and will not start back up?


Since you drained the tank most probably the dirt which collects in any tank over a period of use would have been used up & thus those dirt went to the carburator. If you have a filter before the carb, clean it BUT MOST IMP clean the jets in the carb, especially the the fuel jet/nipple.
