Problem solved.
Been there done that.
Rub, great you have had same behaviour as me... it's odd that can be different types of behaviours from the same low-response-nearly-dead battery. But as I have said: I'm completely new to this bike... what can I know...?
(in my 640Adv, the stock Yuasa batt lasted 5 years but before it died, it noticed me with some lazy starts... less electronics make different results I think)

Akarob, ok, didn't know. Thanks for your advice.


I will be contacting a Yuasa seller in Buenos Aires tomorrow (hope they have this model in stock).

Cheers guys, thanks for your help and my apologies for being such a 990's noobie!!

Try a Honda dealer. Common battery on big Hondas and genuine Yuasa :)

The EFI system requires a higher voltage at start up than the carbed bikes do.
My 950 (carbed) is still using a battery that would NEVER start a 990 (EFI).
(one more reason why I like carbs over EFI)

Once its replaced it'll start right up Im sure.

Happy trails, ride safe.

Jeff, you have brought peace of mind to my non-riding weekend confirming you have experienced the same as me... thanks!
So... no running engine, no way... I will have to give a shot to the decals I have received this week from CrispyDesigns...

When I was offered a 2007 model, I knew it was the 1st 990 EFI year. I had never owned anything but carbed bikes before... like almost everything, all have advantages and disadvantages as well.

Cheers!

In the last picture you can see a nice icy water crossing that made an easy choice for my turnaround spot that day.

Hey Guys, After a couple years of lurking around and asking annoying questions I finally pulled the trigger and bought my first KTM 990 Adventure. Thanks for the help.

Deep sand

That's why the ride, the guitar and the girlfriend must never be lent...
