Question about 2008 KTM 530 EXC-R
I have an 08 ktm 530 exc. The bike starts fine with the kick start, but will not start with the starter. I even hooked it up to a car battery with jumper cables and it still does not turn over fast enough to start. I have the 09 cam installed and valve clearences are fine. Totally de-smogged and jetted about spot on. Starts easily, usually first kick with kick starter. Any help would be great.
Change engine valve

If the bike starts with the kick start but won't electric start. The torque limiter is worn.If you had problems starting the bike with the electric start each time the torque limiter had to slip each time. the bike should start within two kicks. if it does not , the slide height needs to be timed with the accelerator pump both set at 1mm.
