Ktm draggy starter

I have a 2005 ktm 450 exc. when I try to kick start it you can hear the electric start motor spin also. Is this normal? It seems like it would be easier to start if they were separate. Thanks for reading!

The kick start and E-start are separate mechanisms and work independently. Some folks do use the kick starter and E-start at the same time when the battery is a little too low to E-start.

Is this normal?

NO! It is absolutely NOT normal.
