2014 KTM 1190 R starting issue- sorted
« on: May 27, 2019, 11:19:21 am »
Fellow Dogs,

On a recent bike trip, the 1190 decided not to start early in the morning. The same story again today. Motor struggling to crank up. We eventually managed to get the bike jump started via jumper cables. a new battery was installed less than a week ago and did not give any problems for a number of starts after replacement.  Voltage on batt when not connected averaging 12.79V. I am aware of the starter motor being an issue on the 2013-2014 Adv models. could this be the problem?

Does anyone have a spare SM13 (1290) starter that they would consider selling?

Thanks in advance

Q.

Check valve clearances. A small percentage of issues are battery and starter circuit related but the majority are valve clearance issues.

not true

valve clearances will be the issue if you sucked in dust.

I would bet you a beer its the starter and not the battery if that bike is fitted with the SM17 as it sounds like it is.

@quicksilver you will have to contact the secondhand shops. try bikepartsonline, I bought from them. 087 160 0388

Thanks M0lt3n, will do.

update: I had the battery checked and tested. No problem there.  It is a Toplite TTZ14S.   bike is on 28 000km now, 2k away from 30k valve clearance service.
