Could be the coil. Borrow a buddy's coil and test your bike, If not an option buy a new coil.

Check for leak's on manifold rubber between cylinders!
Try to squirt a Carbu cleaner inside the manifold when running,if the idle going fast or dropped, then you have a leak,.

Cooling system


The KTM sx is a full race bike - the radiators do not have fans to keep the bike cool when not moving - the bike must be moving to keep the air passing through the radiators to keep the engine cool - if you have the bike standing still there is no air moving through the radiator - hence why it over heats - tip start the bike after you are fully kitted up for your ride - let it warm up for around a min tops then ride - if you have to stop for a period of time when riding turn the bike off - I have the same issues of over heating if not moving on my VOR 530 - I do as described above and have no issues at all with over heating when riding. good luck

Idle low stalls stopped


This is usually a fuel problem. The bike is running either too lean or too rich. Check your spark plugs -- if there's black carbon on the tips, the fuel/air mixture is too rich and needs to be leaned out. If they're white, it's running too lean. If they're tan, there's some other issue. Clean or replace the air filters and check your inline fuel filter (if you have one) to make sure there are not clogs or obstructions.

My 2000 suzuki katana has a high idle when its hot


This is a fairly common problem with performance bikes. The problem comes from your thermostat. The thermostat is designed to open and close at a certain temp. What I suspect is happening is that your thermostat is opening too early for the bike to get to operating temp, hence the long time to warm up. Once you open up the bike warms up and the oil viscosity thins to operating temp and the engine revs more freely. Now your idle screws are set for a "cold" bike and revs high.

The other side is that the oil you are using may not be designed for your bike. Often people put performance synthetic oils in their bikes to perform better, but the production bikes are designed for thicker oils. Oils like 5w40 will be very thin allowing your bike to rev faster due to thinner oil, but you are causing extra wear on the parts due to less oil barrier.

First I suggest make sure you have the correct spec oil for you bike, then check that you have the correct thermostat in your cooling system. A performance bikes usual operating temp is between 95-105 deg C. This means your thermostat should only open at about 88deg C to start the regulation process.

Have an 06 Suzuki Katana 750. when I start it with full choke it runs fine, then when I go to ride (choke off) it has a low idle and stalls out. I have to go full choke for it to warm up for over 30 min....


Not for sure but u might try to re jet the bike.i own a 98 suzuki bandit 600s and it also is really cold hearted. those bikes are unfortunately known for that problem.not that it was much help but u might try contacting Dales Holeshot Performance he specializes those types of bikes he also sells the jet kits.
i would also try to adjust the idle slightly higher hope this at least helps
