probably low fuel pressure

[QUOTE=fatbloke49;21304497]Went for a 800km ride on the week end from the Sunshine Soast to Childers and back via state forrest and had some issues that I hope can be sorted before I go on the APC in 16 days.
  1. The bike will only start when it's in neutral even if the clutch is pulled in. Is this a clutch switch issue or something to do with the side stand switch? If anyone knows how to fix this could you please upload a photo of the location of these switches?
  2. The bike has been doing it since I got it (15,000km on the clock). When the bike cranks over you have to give it a tiny bit of throttle to start it otherwise it just cranks over. When you give it a bit of throttle it coughs, farts and backfires into the air box. Could this be a mapping issue or something to do with a blocked fuel injector? I was looking at cleaning it like this video. http://youtu.be/1fbDUHlBQoU
  3. On the second day, when doing single track it would stall with low reves in corners but if you ride up to an intersection it will idle fine.
  4. One more from another ride, I pulled out of a service station and the bike just died like someone had turned the ignition switch off.
Any recommendations on any fixes for the above?

Only 16 days left to get it sorted......

Cheers,
Craig

I had the same issue and the fuel line was kinked in side the tank, not allowing enough fuel pressure. Pain the pull it all out to check but may be the issue
cheers

Saw the prototype for a KTM 700RR project yesterday. Really keen to see the finished product in a couple of months.

Fuel pressure

That would be the first thing I would check . My pump was only putting out around 25psi & was giving similar symptoms to yours . A cheap way to check fuel pressure is , buy a cheap analogue tyre pressure gauge cut the end off with the part which attaches to your valve , remove fuel hose from injector & attach the gauge with a worm drive hose clamp .. Expect the gauge to have a short life span . You should have around 50 psi .
