the auto decomp is just a little bump in the exhaust cams lobe. so piston coming up , cam turning , and the bump opens the exhaust just a little, then piston past TDC. If motor doesnt fire in that compression cycle then its same set up on the next cycle.Just curious, any of you guys out there with with 690’s: Can you put the bike in 2nd or 3rd gear and roll it, without the rear tire just skidding along, with the engine turned off? If I could get confirmation of this, it would confirm my hypothesis that either the auto decompression mechanism is not working or, the valves have been shimmed with too much clearance (keeping the auto decomp from working).
pushing bike in gear is no good , better training is to fight the sales guy with a takedown.It needs to be fixed asap as extra stress on the starting parts which you should mention.
Have an email ready in your sent box with all details if the ktm guy asks to send it.
