What KTM? You holding out on us? I'm out for tonight. Other fork seal finally started leaking and new one won't be here until Friday. Used a sealmate before the last ride and it worked for about two hours. Now it's really leaking. I have two more ideas to fix the sputtering and misfiring. If those don't work I'm setting it on fire and claiming it on my insurance.

I got it running again without spending any money. I mean I bought an ignition, but it hasn't showed up yet. The headlight brackets were just a little bent. Straightened them out and it's perfect. Rode it to work today

I think I finally got rid of the high rpm sputtering. It was the fuel filter. About a year ago I used some RTV to seal the fuel pump to the tank because it had some vapor escaping. Apparently some of the silicone got into the tank and the gas ate it up and it clogged the fuel filter. Pump filter and fuel filter were black. Still need to take it for a longer ride to be sure but that seems to be it.

Hey Brandon,

Check your fuel filters. Sometimes people use rtv on their pumps to seal them and it falls off and clogs their fuel filters.

Actually nobody does that because they know that gasoline dissolves RTV.

Haha . I put the rtv behind the rubber oring gasket so I thought even though the oring isn't doing a very good job holding back the gas it will probably keep the rtv from going into the tank. I was apparently wrong. What an odd feeling. This is the first time I've ever been wrong about anything in my whole life.

Tried that originally. I believe the plastic gas tank had somehow been warped. When I took the pump off the holes never have lined back up right. I have to squeeze the tank in between my legs to get the bolts in right. Still can't blame Husky though. I put the RTV on it and Acerbis made the gas tank.

You can blame husky, and I do.

I think permatex has some sealant that is more resistant to gasoline.

edit: found em

there's form-a-gasket #1 and #2.... #1 hardens, #2 doesn't.

Says they resists common shop fluids and fuels.

That's what I used. The #2 non-hardening stuff. Doesn't matter. Bike won't even start now. my life. Ran for a few minutes last night after replacing the filter. I wonder if there is just air in the line or something. Starts for a split second now and dies.

maybe the carb is all gummed up from the RTV Get in there and clean that out, you still have time.

Does IMS make a tank for your bike?

Make sure it has gas. I recommend to use a lighter to help see deep into the tank. Please report back with your findings.
