Fully with Marius on this and I like to add: why do people pull the clutch while on the move and not changing gears?
Yes, I wonder what will happen if you disconnect the clutch switch (wich is really flimsy and cheap looking on my bike) and try riding. If you can ride without it normally, and not stall while coasting then we found the smoking gun and KTM recall can be requested.The evidence really does point at the clutch or clutch switch. It’s the common factor in all the above. I’d also add that we’ve seen a number of complaints about cutting out or starting issues associated with coasting so this is something to avoid.
Clutch switch, clutch drag - my experience is that these engines are really easy to stall, or a software glitch. I’d suggest unplugging the clutch switch, readjusting the clutch and using more revs when using the clutch and see if any of those changes how often it happens. Just having the revs too low with a slightly dragging clutch might do it.
I lost power on a bridge once with no side curb to roll off to. Got lucky that the truck behind had space to break. Almost died. The idiotic environmental laws will cost lives for nothing as the pitiful amount of exhaust from a bikes in Europe and US doesn’t affect the environment in any way whatsoever. It’s all made up and it hurts people and companies. Politicians don’t care as they just found another excuse to tax and punish people for living and breathing.Hi its a problem across the range of KTM’s, in the EU they have to meet strict euro laws so run the bike lean, if it’s nice and warm (bike that is) you should not see this problem but usually for the first ten or so mins this stalling can happen. I was nearly rear ended when all power was lost approaching a roundabout as I ride usually coasting to roundabouts etc to time not having to stop, I wasn’t impressed lol
Yes, All taxes that are related to CO2 production are effectively a tax on life as such. The medieval feudal lords are exactly the same as unaccountable political elite today. (They are today’s version of aristocracy).My mum used to say ‘they can’t tax the air that you breathe’ sadly it seems that they can....
Rollover Sensor, Location (behind steering head):Is there a fuel cut out sensor in case of accident on these things? Wonder if sharp breaking could set such a thing off?
Yes, this happens to me also, simply clutching in and braking sometimes causes the engine to stall, generally in less than ideal circumstances, this is a safety concern, too bad KTM won't release a recall. I should also add, it does this even when not braking. Sometimes simply clutching in and letting the bike attempt to return to idle when coming to a stop kills the engine.So.......... It seems that my duke likes to cut out/stall when braking sharply (with the clutch in) once I come to a stop? Anyone else experienced this at all???
Interesting.Sometimes simply clutching in and letting the bike attempt to return to idle when coming to a stop kills the engine.
Was back at the dealer this weekend (after taking off the PT...what a right pain!)
They claimed there was a new and improved software update available that would cure all ailments. Yeah...not really!
Does run just a wee wee bit better without the Coober airbox lid though.
Stalling issue persists. Hot/cold/wet/dry/cornering/straight ahead/stopping/accelerating, no one particular parameter stands out more than the others. Horrible!
