Seems like an age ago since we were playing in the desert
Ian408, it would be great news if the battery's causing this, I'm really affraid to have just bought a bike with a hughe and expensive electronic problem :eek1
It would be great also to know if I can test start the bike with any 12V batt (anybody knows this?) or I will have to wait to find another 99x owner to use his battery. There's no Yuasa battery sellers in Patagonia so I can't buy one to change it an see what happens. And during week end, I can't reach any battery shop in order to test the battery itself.
It's the battery, change it.
Been there done that.
...and next time, start a separate thread. You'll get better responses that way.
Rub, great you have had same behaviour as me... it's odd that can be different types of behaviours from the same low-response-nearly-dead battery. But as I have said: I'm completely new to this bike... what can I know...?
(in my 640Adv, the stock Yuasa batt lasted 5 years but before it died, it noticed me with some lazy starts... less electronics make different results I think)
Akarob, ok, didn't know. Thanks for your advice.
I will be contacting a Yuasa seller in Buenos Aires tomorrow (hope they have this model in stock).
Cheers guys, thanks for your help and my apologies for being such a 990's noobie!!
Try a Honda dealer. Common battery on big Hondas and genuine Yuasa :)
Peanuts... there are Honda dealers here actually! I will give it a shot tomorrow early in the morning, thanks for the tip :OP
The EFI system requires a higher voltage at start up than the carbed bikes do.
My 950 (carbed) is still using a battery that would NEVER start a 990 (EFI).
(one more reason why I like carbs over EFI)
Once its replaced it'll start right up Im sure.
Happy trails, ride safe.
Great pic Gav!
Jeff, you have brought peace of mind to my non-riding weekend confirming you have experienced the same as me... thanks!
So... no running engine, no way... I will have to give a shot to the decals I have received this week from CrispyDesigns...
When I was offered a 2007 model, I knew it was the 1st 990 EFI year. I had never owned anything but carbed bikes before... like almost everything, all have advantages and disadvantages as well.
Some shots from a couple recent rides South West of Denver.
In the last picture you can see a nice icy water crossing that made an easy choice for my turnaround spot that day.
Hey Guys, After a couple years of lurking around and asking annoying questions I finally pulled the trigger and bought my first KTM 990 Adventure. Thanks for the help.
Swapped my Tiger with another inmate for a while today. Loads of fun.
I had to buy him lunch to get him off of it
Couple more from my Moroccan trip.
Love this shot of the bike and the missus, dunno why, nothing special, but love it all the same.
More sand :)
Wide open space
That's why the ride, the guitar and the girlfriend must never be lent...
I agree with the ride and guitar.
There aren't too many bikes I wouldn't hop off for a Bitchin Baltic Burger.
Just picked up a 2010 990 (standard) last week. Got to explore the wide open prairies last weekend. I've got to get with the program and get some more bike pictures.
This is an upgrade from a KLR650. The weight for the first 30 minutes was intimidating. After I started standing & treating it like a dirt bike, the rest of the ride was an absolute blast.
