2008 KTM 530 EXC WON'T FIRE WITH STARTER

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.

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.

You need to work with a suspension specialist shop to lower your bike. They can take apart the forks and shock and install spacers to limit the travel and make the bike lower. This mod is easily removed in the future if you decide to sell the bike etc.

Try Enduro Engineering or Pro Action There are other local shops that do suspension work... ask around at local shops and the KTM dealer etc.

Havent ridden or started my 08 ktm 530 for 11mths what do i need to do before i ride it?


Check the fluids, drain all of the fuel and replace, change the oil and filter, and I would clean and re-oil the air filter. Start it, and hope that the fuel hasn't started to go bad.
Also, check tire pressure.

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

2008 KTM 530 EXC is a bugger to start.


While it's generally considered a cardinal sin to touch the trottle on a thumper while starting. I found my pumpkin liked to have a quick squirt (little blip of the throttle) before trying 1st. Got luck I discovered this after many hours of head scratching.

Torque limiter gear on electric starter motor is suspect


Go to KTMTALK.COM (free)
This problem has been posted there.
I belive the person had to have the shop
replace some parts for it to work correctly.
It also may have been a missing part. Can't remember but it is there.

2008 ktm 530 hard starting, hard to kick start, remove emissions


If it's a real bugger to kick start, install an 09 cam, works wonders. Go to KTMtalk.com to inquire about emissions removal
