Noise then death

Mine made noise for awhile then it finally died. I think that HD went bad. Sounds horrible if I try and start it up.

    The sound intermittent and is almost a thwack like the arm is trying to move but can't. It does have a fan but if it were bearings I'd assume it would be a constant.

    I'll take the hard drive out and do some research one the warranty for that.

    Thanks for the great advice.

I would agree with you, unless that model has a fan and the fan bearings are out. Bearings will make a huge noise when they fail. But, you mentioned it's also dead.... so it might actualy be. Even if the unit is out of warranty, sometimes the hard drive inside has a 3 - 5 year manufactures warranty. Depending on how the unit works internally, you might be able to replace that hard drive and continue on.

If you have a carby check that the auto choke is working correctly. If is set too tightly closed it will flood the engine every time and pumpin the pedal will not help the situation. Mostly the correct adjustment should be almost closed but will open under air flow.

Ktm wont start

sounds like you may have over adjusted the decompressor, back it off to where it was, this would make it backfire.
To kick them, push the kickstart through its stroke until you get to feel the compression as it approaches the compression stroke, then use the decomp to kick it just past top dead, let the decomp go and then kick it, no throttle

Could be cam sensor, crank sensor, PCM going bad. On these newer vehicles with all the electronics it is hard to pinpoint what it is till the check engine light does come on for it. I would suspect one of the 3 going bad though.
