There I've said it. I've had this thing for 3000 miles, my wife's has about 1500 miles on it, and here is the list of issues, solved and unsolved I've had. -Dirt in the carburator- no fuel filter? Not rocket science. Dealer scratched head and said "I don't know how that got there?" Seems like bullshit to me, as in this should not happen, (not like he PUT it there...). Cost me about $200. Dealer graciously discounted work as this occured at 1000 miles and he felt my pain. (My bike.) -Faulty vacuum valve feeding from charcoal canister to rear cylinder. Dealer had to call KTM USA they called Austria. They all scratched their heads and asses and told the dealer to "temporarily" disconnect the system. Covered as warranty by dealer, not sure about KTM. Keep in mind, this takes 6 hours of driving each time for me, as there is no nearby dealer. (wife's bike) -Both bikes have a weird idle issue. When you let off throttle at stop, idle sits at 1800 rpms for a few seconds (10 +/-) and then falls off to 1400, but only when it is good and warmed up. Is that normal? I am new to motorcycles, but none of my vehicles, including my DRZ400s does this. Dealer scratches head and says "yeah, I don't know why it does that" (both bikes) -Now, my bike idles very irratically, sounds as if it isn't firing right each time, and frequently stalls at idle. Had local mechanic (fuck the 6 hour drive and warranty only covers stuff that KTM can fix, which doesn't seem like much...) sync the carbs, (which were WAY out and should have been done at the 600 mile tune up AND after I had the dirt cleaned out of the carbs), which kinda helped, but now the problem is back. Like I said...piece of SHIT! (my bike) -I have done the following: Checked adjustment of mixture screws (both are now set at factory 2 1/4 turns out), had the 600 mile tune up per owners manual by dealer, I just removed the EPC thinking it could be responsible for idle issues per forums here.( I vacuum capped the carb ports and sealed the airbox holes.) It seems to go better, but no effect on idle. HERE'S THE THING: I spent $12,000 on a new motorcycle that doesn't work right and I am sick of driving the thing in the back of my truck to get it fixed, at an expense to me, at LEAST for the gas to drive it there and back. I don't want to be a motorcycle mechanic. I just want my $12,000 PROTOTYPE (as in not ready to be sold to a retail market because the bugs aren't worked out) motorcycle to work right. AND I am writing this to this forum because KTM doesn't even have an email address. (I'll cut and paste this to a paper letter and send it later maybe...) There is a local myth that someone who owns one of these things (in LA?) has similar but worse issues (like the fuel is getting over heated on the way to the carb and boiling maybe..) and I've read a few things here about people with various ongoing issues ranging from blown head gaskets to just having their new bikes in the shop half the time. WHAT THE FUCK? KTM needs better customer service if they are going to get into this higher end/ more complicated bike market I think. My next bike will be Japanese, and I will be in the dirt bike market in the not too distant future.
