Anyone got KTM 450 hot starting techniques?
you talking kicking or e start? there was some wisdom at ktmtalk about if the fo fiddy is hard to start on the button (but easy to kick) it could be voltage bleed on the ignition coil. it also has a vestigial "hot start" lever on the right side head but probably without the corresponding cable and actuator. put a long zip tie on that so you can clear the cylinder?

It's got the manual compression release installed - I think the "Main Issue" was noob trying to use it (me). I missed the part where you're supposed to fully open the trottle while you use the Compression Release, and kick it a few times to clear the cylinder when it floods. Still learning it's quirks. Hoping that along with a Valve check and fully charged battery will help. Will do some dirt nap testing at home before going out to the woods again.

Nice! Do you have a Brittania front cowling on that?
How do you like the FMF Q4?

Yea, the Lynx Fairing with HIDs, love it. The FMF is a lot quieter than the full race pipe I took off it. I like it.

OK.

Don't push it, but nice to see you are on the way back.
