New Member with a '16 that just died
« on: May 23, 2017, 04:31:03 pm »
Hey all! I'm glad I came across an Enduro specific forum. Sorry to stop in and say 'hi' under such needy circumstances, but I promise I'll stick around and contribute to the group as I can. I've been poking around the internet trying to find some answers about my situation. No dice. First of my many KTM's that has ever let me down. Real bummer.

I have a 2016 with only 700 miles, always ran perfectly. I recently relocated on coastal NC so haven't ridden the bike in a few weeks. Took it out yesterday. Started right up, ran strong for 15 minutes just like it always has. Just as front wheel came down from a power wheelie it immediately lost power so I rolled in neutral to a stop. Bike has good battery power, lights on, horn will beep, engine turns over strong, but she just won't start. Has this happened to any of you? Any ideas would be great. Seems electrical/electronic, but it's beyond me what it might be. I'm 4 hours from the nearest KTM dealer so feeling kinda SOL...

Once she gets rolling again, would love to find some other eastern NC riders, if you're out there....

Thanks!

I just saw your post.  Did you ever get this figured out?

I'm guessing sidestand switch or possibly the leads to the injector.

Yea kinda quiet in here.

Just took to a dealer in Raleigh today. Turns out it was the quick disconnect on the fuel line. It was connected but not properly clipped from the factory so that final jolt is what disconnected it just enough to plug the line. The tech found it because this happened on another KTM just a few weeks ago.

I'm glad it was something easy.

I did that to myself once on the 1190.  But never would have come up with that as a solution for you.

Thanks. I was bummed I didn't catch it before driving 7 hours, but glad it wasn't something significant. The dealer still covered their time under warranty which was cool.
