    Well, it's finally alive. I'm probably going to have to do a little tuning and adjusting as I had one flameout and some decel popping in the 1/4 mile or so I run it around the neighborhood warming it up after filling with coolant. That is with the JD tuner hooked up and whatever base settings it came with. I'm looking forward to the miles to come.

    I did notice that it's crazy hard to find neutral while stopped. I would say borderline impossible. Does it get easier as things wear in?

    Mine hasn't, a slight blip of the throttle has always worked for me.

    This is where mine is at, and I've never had a flame-out nor decel popping. As received from PO, the green setting was 1 step leaner, and RB was one step richer than what I have now (which is as recommended by JD, except the GB as noted).

    G 3/4
    Y 4/5
    R 2/3
    GB 3/4 (this is the only setting different than recommended, being 2 steps richer)
    YB 4/5
    RB 4

    Jdubb, they are a bugger for neutral, full stop.

    Goddamn near impossible to find neutral while running, in my experience.

    Yep, neutral is a pain to find while running on my 390 at 150hrs.

    Try clicking it in to neutral while still rolling (even barely moving). Takes a bit of practice, but seems to work quite well. Enjoy your new ride jdubb75.

    I've had the elusive-neutral issue on all my off-road KTM's.

    Hard to find neutral usually means the clutch needs bleeding or maybe rebuild of slave and master.
    But I also always find neutral while rolling to a stop.

    The stars aligned and I was granted a plate for the 390 today. I was holding my breath because IN does not allow off road motorcycle conversions any longer and my 390 had never been plated. There was one little snag though. The seller did not fill out the odometer section of the title and I did not catch it. I was told I had two options. One was to have the seller fill out the odo section and being that he is 5 hours away in TN that was not reasonable. The other was to have the title marked as "not actual mileage." I just chose to have the "not actual mileage" statement added to the title. I could have just left, filled out the odo section myself and went back in a few days, but I was there and didn't want to wait any longer. It's not really a big deal anyway. I bought it with 3 miles on it and have plenty of pictures and documentation to prove it. C'est la vie...

    So what happened with this anyways? We all placed our bets on the cause of your FI problems so now we have to find out.

    The bike is back up and running with the new injector and pump. I have unfortunately just been too busy the past few weeks for any real riding. I should be able to get out this weekend and will post the results.

    It was only about 1 1/2 hours from me. I was tempted to go look at it, but I'm tripping over bikes in the garage as it is. I need to move one or two out before I bring another in.

    Come on J, we can always make room.

    That was a nice bike. Has sold though.

    Does anyone have the a diagram for wiring a brake switch to the factory rear light? Been through the thread but could not find anything definitive.

    Front or rear brake switch? Is it an oem switch? There is a white connector for the rear brake switch hidden up by the shock.

    The GB is the idle "circuit" and that's where mine is popping a bit. When I cut the throttle I can see the lights switch to GB and that's when it will pop some. I'll bump up the fuel in that area. I really haven't wrung it out, but I did get into it a little last night and it feels very good up to half throttle-ish. I haven't gone passed that point yet.

    Another thing you can do is look through my posts. About 3-4 weeks ago I posted a link to a google drive folder that has all kinds of Berg info to download as you need.

    Also, not sure what all you are doing, but I have a spreadsheet with all the oem PN I ordered to put brake switches and signals on my 390. It's all plug and play easy peasy.
