mine has been doing the same for the last couple months ( 05 640 20000miles) l have a new cog and clutch that l ordered a while ago but haven't got the courage to try it fix it yet, but after seeing this l might give it ago, l can kick it over when l'm some where easy but when l 'm half way up a muddy hill it is ncie to have the magic button.
Anybody want to let me borrow/buy a KTM puller ? we could do a buy it and sale it to the next ADV person deal ????
