KTM 690 SMC Issues -2012
Having a very bad experience with my first KTM 690 Smc, the bike was bought 2nd hand 7500k miles on it. As soon as i got it i brought it straight to the local KTM dealer to service the engine and get the valve clearance done. (which wasn't done by the previous owner.)
After this was done i had a few rides and notice driving through traffic, Starting and stopping the bike would stall at lights. "in neutral pull clutch hit 1st and it would die immediately". the KTM garage had it 3 times or so and put it to bad fuel. It continued to happen so they then put it down to the clutch (jap part orange fancy clutch) so they have changed it back to the orig part and since then when the bike hits 7000+ rpm there is a winding noise coming from the engine not sure if its the engine or clutch its hard to figure out the point of noise.... only 7+ and if you let off the throttle you can hear like its unwinding (for 2 seconds roughly) , it has been back to the KTM garage and they could not replicate the issue im sure it will happen again next time im riding it.
Has anyone ever had this issue before or any idea what it could be? im really frustrated with the bike so if anyone in Ireland looking its for sale :-)..
Thanks Lads, And merry Christmas.
