Hey Dirtriderz!! Am at the end of my tether! Had a whole lot of trouble with this ‘dream’ bike of mine. 2015 KTM 450 XC-F, 57.5 Hours and second ride after purchase the clutch burnt out. It came from a very loving, maintained and well looked after home prior. I’ve just had it at a dealer for 2 months to have a major issue fixed, in that it will not start easily or at all when hot. First time every time, cold but not after running. I had other things done also, fork seals Sprockets Chain new Clutch oil including Labour for a total of $950+ First ride back and the original issue came back to haunt me, 10 minutes in. I was stuck out at Neerim when this major fault occurred. I got it going again by rolling and using a portable jumper pack. Contacted the mechanic who’s answer was put the original pipe on and then ‘SELL IT’ Putting the KTM Pipe on, did nothing to fix the hot start issue. I need to have it fixed for my own preservation and morale compass...if and when it is sold but am currently out of avenues. I also have a pretty big attachment to it despite the heartache it’s caused me. I have inspected and checked: new Starter, New Stator, Throttle body sensor corrected, kill switch, fly wheel magnatisium, fuel mix (was rich), fuel pump & primer and lines, fuel filter (was dirty) auto hot de-compression, valves are all within Spec and talking to a dealer a new battery with a minimal of 130 CCA Lithium. After any advice or suggestions, I am totally stuck, do I just write the near thousand dollars spent off and take it elsewhere to someone that you guys could suggest, to please please help me! Thanks for any advice you may send my way. I’m in the South East suburbs of Melbourne, But I could travel anywhere to get this right. Cheers CRUZEE
