Hello All,

I have 5 other bikes, from Vespa scooters to an old enduro and a Kawasaki Versys 650

I am a recent owner of a 2015 KTM duke 390 with only 1400 miles,,,,,I love it !

Unfortunately, I have been experiencing a stalling problem with a warm motor. After a few hours ride, I pull up to a traffic light, put the bike in neutral. Light turns green and I pull in clutch and shift into 1st. as soon as I put into gear- Motor shuts off - Before I even let the clutch lever out @!

Hoping to get some help on this issue and get on with the pleasure of riding this awesome bike

Sounds like what others have mentioned - could be dirty sidestand switch. Bike has a circuit designed to prevent you riding with stand down - clean off the magnet found near hinge on stand and see if that helps.

E-nut, Welcome to the forum! Another veteran rider seduced by the Duke's charms!

Your stalling issue sounds very much like it could be the result of a misbehaving sidestand switch. As CDN mentioned, the first step in the fix is to thoroughly clean the magnet mounted on the sidestand, as well as the sensor/switch activated by the magnet. The second part of the fix developed by Hoover is to take off the magnet, add a washer and reattach it so it will now reside closer to the sensor when the stand is retracted, reducing the chance that movements and vibrations during operation will move the magnet out of range of the sensor. Everyone who has tried this fix thus far has been pleased with the results.

There may possibly be other causes for 390 stalling that will not be addressed by this fix, but certainly experience suggests that a great percentage of stalling issues can be cured with this simple solution. Try it!

Cheers, Will
