What's up everyone, thought I would come here for some help. I have a KTM 250 SX-F factory edition, just had entire top end and crank replaced, but now bike warms up for about 10-20min, perfectly fine sounds great then you try start and within a couple of seconds it bogs out. Any idea what it could possibly be?

Probably something to do with letting it warm up for so long. Start it, put your gear on and ride it. Engine heats probably throwing the air temp sensor off.

Fuck man could be a bunch of shit. Bad fuel pump could cause it. Runnin that pump gas in these finicky race bikes is no bueno. Shits got dirt in it.

Any codes flashing in the light behind the number plate?

-Dirty In-line fuel filter?
-Fuel pump bad
-Did you disconnect any of the grounds to the frame?
-Bad fuel?
-Check the plug boot for cracks, sometimes the rubber splits when you insert them because the fitting is so tight. This will cause them to arc off the engine.

It doesn't start for 10 seconds. Shuts off after you rev it. Or ride it and let off gas to turn around. Starts right back up. Fuel filter is not clogged. Didn't have one before so it's a new one. No codes flashing

I’d try to find someone with the same bike and start swapping parts.

First I’d try their fuel tank. Also check your spark plug boot for cracks as mention above...

Check your battery connection and confirm that it's tightened down.

Check the part of your subframe where the seat rides on in the back where the battery grounds. I had it crack and it did some weird shit because the battery couldn't ground.

Anyone ever figured out the above?! I literally just ran into the same issue. It started with not wanting to idle and left me stranded(battery died from restarting getting back to the van)#needsakickstarter. Next time out I put brand new race gas and battery had no issues first race of 2018 so maybe 30 min run time. The issue came back, went out to practice and the idle and power was hit or miss but got better with time. Thought the injector was cleaning itself out. Went out the last time (today 4/4/2018) and the bike ran great the start of the day. Then an hour later had weird bog issues (half a lap) then FINALLY died on me and won't start! This is driven me nuts. My plan is to check the Throttle position sensor tomorrow. Then check spark plug (new from winter maintenance). If I don't find anything I plan on sending it to the dealer. I think it may be fuel pump given that I have already changed the fuel filter on the bike this winter as well.

Wasn’t there a rectified problem with the 250SXF? Seems like it has something to do with heat. I’d be looking at electrical items. Maybe the condenser, voltage regulator or coil?

Another thing I’ve heard is when you pull out the spark plug cap if your not careful you can actually rip the rubber and it was arc against the cylinder.

I am not sure about the rectified problem? But I am breaking out the fluke meter now. I will start checking voltage and ohms per manual now. Thanks for the ideas!!!!

Fuel pump/ delivery issue.

Some 2016s had a fuel line that was kinked in the tank. Google that issue, it’s easy to check and won’t cost you anything.
