Torque Limiter

I had the same Bleeping problem with my 08 exc 450...
Like Rob posted the torque limiter is one issue.....

The real way to fix this ploblem is, to have KTM replace the cam with a easier starting cam for there newer motors 08 and above, they devoloped this cam as there well aware of this issue. I had mine replace
for FREE from KTM, after some bitching on my part and never had any problems again.... KTM.com has several post on this issue....

I was going to come down Sat, but I was just asked to work and I can't say no to rate overtime. I'll try for Sunday morning if I can get it together.

Well, With the help of my wife I pulled my bike out of the basement yesterday after work. It started up right away, hadn't run since Sept. I rode down the street and then into the trail next to my house. Over the first pile of logs and that was it. My shoulder yelled at me for being to agressive. Doesn't help that I torture it everyday. Oh well, try again in a couple weeks!
