About all you can do is to temporarily remove the air filter ( to be sure the carb is getting air ). Install a new spark plug. Remove the float bowl on the carb and be sure the float operates properly; shuts off the gas when in the "up" position and lets the gas flow when in the "down" position. Is the crank chamber partially filled with gas? If so, pull the head off then run the piston to the top and then move the entire cylinder away from the case a couple of inches. Use a few folded paper towels to absorb the gas. Put it all back together and give it a try. If the carb has a power valve, be sure to go easy on twisting the throttle as each twist shoots extra gas into the chamber.

Having trouble kick starting 1999 Suzuki 650S - flooding could it be bad gas, new battery in it .new bike for me.

it could be bad gas but depending how long it has gone without the carbs being cleaned out it could be a big part of it is what i would do to keep cost down but get good results...change the gas (only run premiem gas) pull the spark plugs out give them a quick spray with starting fluid then put them back in then i would use a product called seafoam once i get it can get seafoam at an auto parts store follow the instructions and the bike should run like a dream...good luck i hope this helps

Try turning the idle screw which protrudes from the air filter box anti clockwise once it's running. Or try taking your air filter off and drilling two holes (5mm + 7mm) in the little 'heart shaped' depression on the bottom of it.

i dont think you car wants to leave your house.... maybe your injectors are bad, if the chamber is getting too much fuel you could be flooding it, and if that gas gets past your rings you have bigger problems

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
