Bought a used 2011 ktm 450sxf. Bump started bike and ran fine.
Electrical starter didnt smell good so I purchased a new oem one.
Got a click click click from relay. Replaced relay and ground cable with new oem. Checked all grounds and replaced battery with new one and higher CCA. Engine cranks couple times and pauses. Check valves clearances and within spec. Not sure what else to do....

Have you both tried just jumping the starter motor straight from a car battery to give it some serious cca to see if it makes any difference?
Sounds like a bike not decompressing enough or at the correct time for the e-start. Could the exhaust cam be out one tooth?
Nice strong earth at the starter?
