I've been exploring all the different 790 forums (there are SO MANY!) I posted this on the "main" one? Mine had the same problem with a cold start (2 to 3 pushes of the starter button, didn't touch nothing else, and waited for the TFT show to end). And when I say cold start I mean first start of the day (August/September, HOT here in Tennessee). Heard on the other 790 forum about the Booster Plug solving the problem. I had one on my Triumph Tiger 800 but I didn't notice any change (hoping the bike would run a little cooler with it richer and stop the decel pops in the muffler) . Bought one for the 790, installed it, problem solved. Starts the first time like it should. Maybe KTM will come out with another "ECM flash" until then I'll stick with the boost. Now there is a sacrifice. I wasn't really checking my mileage on the bike but I do remember seeing 57.5 miles to the gallon. After the Booster I'm getting 52.9 MPG. Spirited Rider. Reminded me when I rejeted my DRZ400SM, was gettin 60MPG, after the jets 50MPG. BUT it was a lot more fun to ride! Here's how I hooked mine up: Booster comes with a temperature probe. You are supposed to keep it away from the engine heat. The Booster tricks the ECM that it's cooler than it actually is thus enriching the fuel. By the way I've always run high test in my bikes (if that would make a difference in starting). You can go to the Booster Plug web site and geek out on all the details of how it works. Think of it as a Danish for your Austrian bike.
