    I’m having a starting issue where the bike doesn’t start and stay running on the first crank. It requires a second crank every time but stays running after the second crank.

    I am running a Shorai LFX19A4-BS12 Lithium battery.

    Cold cranking amps: 285
    Ah: 19
    12v

    Is it the battery?

    Anyone else experiencing this? The bike should fire and stay fired on the first crank.

    A lot of them do this. Mine does it once in a while, but less often since I hit 5000 miles.

    @The Griz Yup - idling after a cold start is a known problem. There was a separate thread started on this issue here: https://advrider.com/f/threads/ktm-790-takes-a-few-tries-to-start.1406095/

    Please can some one give me more info on the cat delete pipe, who/where/how much and what exactly does it do, is the "box" an empty resonance box or contain material that mimics the cat?

    Hi Edgy
    If you are referring to the Arrow version it may be better to contact them directly.
    The part number is 71719MI for the decat pipe.
    The one on this site doesn’t offer any detail either I’m afraid but looks very similar.

    Ok so after a day in the saddle on perfect gravel “rally” roads i would say 15/46 is to low geared.
    It works but I find myself shifting gears way to much.
    Might be handy on single tracks etc but for fast paced gravel I’d stick to stock’ish gearing.

    Mitas E-12/13 works great. Decent on road, perfect on the sand/rocks/gravel surface.

    Shorter levers... meh I don’t use the clutch that much anyways and front brake was never an issue to begin with. But hey, I look good parked :)

    The bike is killer, a joy to ride and makes my mediocre riding skill look decent!

    What soft items? The panniers and racks are all made of metal.

    I knew they would do that the instant I sent my seat off to be reworked elsewhere. The rest of you can thank me.

    I love my Seat Concepts seat on my 500EXC. Not at all on my Honda CB500X. For me, the SC is NOT a longer distance seat.

    This is only for the S model, it's a seat kit. So they send you foam and a cover and you install it on your current seat base. This is one reason it's so much cheaper than some other aftermarket seats.

    Migolito, sure hope I have a different experience with mine, since longer rides are the whole reason I'm doing this.

    I posted up re my seat. It's a custom seat from Mr Ed's Moto. They literally make it as you wait, custom to your butt. I have about 1000 miles on it now, and will do follow up after my cross country ride this Jan.

    There will be more options from them, for sure.
