Checked kill switch. Battery terminal connections checked. Have tried changing gears and then back to neutral, clutch pulled in. Unfortunately no change.

Will have to check side stand switch. I do have the side stand removal switch, maybe I'll finally get around to installing it.

That opens up another line of curiosity...
Has anybody figured out what KTM did to make the 2012 & up a 690 vs 654? What's the difference between the motors?

There was some old posts about looking into it. Then nothing. I guess if it was just a new jug and piston assembly it would be worth it after some kind of top end failure repair.

It's a longer stroke. The only real difference in parts is the crank assembly. The piston is slightly different, but functionally the same.

No major modifications to the bike other than an Akro pipe.

Any assistance or direction on what I should be checking would be appreciated.

You may also want to check the position of the magnet on your kickstand for proper alignment with the safety switch if you have not removed it. I think this is one of the most common causes for your symptom.

that's EXACTLY what mine did two days ago,,,,,turns out the negative ground strap that goes to one of the bolts that fasten the STARTER to the case,,,,,,was corrode in the threads.......everything looked fine on the outside, but when removing the bolt, it was difficult to remove and highly corroded,,,,,,cleaned the threads with a wire brush,,,, greased up the bolt ,, blew out the hole with WD 40 and re-installed bolt/ground strap.

motor started on first push of button,,,,idles and runs better than ever

What is it with this bike and the shoddy grounding. Thought I had a dead battery last week and when I started messing with the bike I figured out my R/R wasn't working. Turned out it was the damn ground wire coming of the R/R. . At least I checked the bike over before I wasted money on a new battery.

mine did the same thing a while back. It turned out to be a wire to the aux starter relay (runs under the battery box) was worn through. Easy to fix, no worries since.
