I couldnt make this up. Yesterday while leaving work in downtown cow town Calgary my 2005 KTM 950 S stalled at a light. I tried to restart it but the only way to even get even a little life out of it was to gingerly play with the throttle. But there was no way I was going anywhere. I rolled the bike to the side of the road where there was a small cal-de-sac. Jumped off the bike and called my friend to see if he was around with his truck. Just happened that he was about three blocks away, leaving work J So I started looking for a ditch or hill that we could use the bike when a fellow watering his grass asked if he could help me. So I asked him if he knew of a good loading spot. He had a better idea. How about I use the ramps for his motorcycle J Turns out he has a very, very old 1950 something matchless that he showed me that unfortunately was damaged in the floods last year but would defiantly be restored. <?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o> So there I am within 10 minutes with a truck, ramps and a new friend. Ready to load the bike up when a cowboy is wondering down the street and asks if he can help? SURE! So we line up the bike and I give the 3 count. 1 2 . And before I could say three the bike is already in the back of the truck. So now I have a broken bike but some cool new friends and a story to share.<o></o> <o> </o> THE BIKE had been sitting in the underground parkade of my office for a few days and the battery was dead. So I threw it on the trickle charger for the day while I was at work. When I went down after work the bike fired up just fine and I drove off. It wasnt until a dozen or so blocks later that the bike just stalled at a light. And then would start but only if I played with the throttle. I suspect either fuel or electrical and am about to go out to the shop to start doing some testing.<o></o> Any suggestions where to look and what to test?
