AC just called me to say they found the problem, apprently the spark plug cap was not sealing correctly water , was getting in and the spark plug was arcing on the engine, had to replace plug and cap,- say it now  , all at once "TOLD YOU SO"

I just hope they are right now, but sounds like the problem , if i recall it happned after each wash, now that i think of it!!!!!

777 and J-dog, Im following this thread and I know KTM Cape Town had a hell of a lot of shit with their 690 demo , it was even sent up to the Joburg KTM guys to try and sort it out, eventually someone decided to put a new spark plug in, and everything was 100% again.

lol....incredible but it happens
