    Yeah, but it's not the cylinder. In these tilt columns the culprit is a rod that is a piece of crappy metal called an actuator.
    Toyoklahoma, after I washed out ignition with WD 40 I sprayed in TriFlo silicone lube. The ignition is smooth until you go roll to "start" (when actuator rod is pushed down).

    In any case, given the use of the truck only for games, I can live with it being cold natured. If actuator breaks totally, I may just rig a start button.

    More importantly, since it cranks great but doesn't start, I will focus on figuring out if I am getting both fuel and fire. Games this weekend have kept me away from it. Maybe some time tomorrow after the game.

    Morning to all. Hope everyone is having a super weekend. Yesterday I was (again) looking at the Husqvarna 650 Terra here in town. The owner informs me that KTM is about to buy Husky from BMW (??). Also, has anyone heard anything good or bad on the new 650s (Terra or Strada)? Still considering the yammie tenere, but I would rather be more road-limited than trail limited--and these two machines are totally different. The 650 is super slim and comfy.

    KTM is in the process of buying Husky. The Terra is a Chinese built BMW really. BMW bought Husky for one reason and that's to build a budget line. They shit canned all the real Husky's too build bikes like the Terra.

    The deal is already done, as I understand. KTM now owns Husky. (Or more accurately, a holding company owned by the guy who owns KTM now owns Husky.) I wonder if they are just going to shut it down, being a competitor and all. i can't see any economic sense in KTM continuing to build a brand that competes with it. Or maybe it's just a play for the Indian market. In any case, not good news. BMW was never really serious about Husky, and now they are getting out of the off road business altogether.

    Not saying necessarily that it's a POS, keep in mind they built GS 650 motors in China for a while as well. Obviously, part of the reason Euro bikes cost more is because the labor is so high. Building stuff in China doesn't equate to junk so long as what's being built there is carefully monitored.

    Just understand what the Terra is. Heck, your Jap bike probably has half it's parts made in China. The company we used over in China to build our paintball loaders also made Yamaha levers in the very same factory.
