I purposely don't set the clock on my KTM. If I'm on the KTM, I don't want to know.

Interesting that just a few hours after mentioning that mine stalls sometimes when it's cold, I stall the thing at the first stop sign leaving my house this afternoon.

Sometimes I have more issues trying to ride nice and slow than I do riding a bit faster. Wet roads were my excuse for going too slow and stalling it today.

My buddies new 250 KTM ( 2 stroke) died the same way. I told him "just ride it, the piston is tight in the cylinder". That was in 2007. the bike is still being ridden,..... on the same piston and rings.

this is a completely different issue and has nothing to do with the described problems, which have nothing to do with the fact that the bike hasnt been broken in yet...

Also a word of note on the clock on the KTM. They have been known to have strange parasitic drain on the battery, some discharging the battery enough that in a 2 week period , she won't turn the starter. IT is out there., some have it , some don't. Many seek for the answer, most have no clue. As for your battery, if it was trouble at the terminal or a bad cell, your bike wouldn't re-start so easily, once a cell is shorted, the 12Volts needed to turn the starter, are no longer there. AND since yours is fuel injected, I guarantee that it wouldn't run on less than 12 volts.

Bike's running great and even the clock is keeping the proper time. Will have the first service this weekend. Very happy.
