Hello I have some questions for all of you ktm 500 exc owners out there. Or anyone else in the know. 1. Will the bike run with the battery disconnected? I believe the answer is no since I already did my own test and it dies as soon as the battery is unhooked. 2. Is the stator not strong enough to run the bike without the battery? Or does it have a fail safe that shuts off the engine if it detects the battery is disconnected? 3. If the battery dies and is still hooked up, say stranded in the middle of the desert. is there a cheap effective way of jump starting the bike to get it back to the truck? Something I could carry in my back pack. I've already found the bike won't kick over with a dead battery. Due to there being no battery juice to prime the fuel injection. . A buddy, of a buddy of mine has a 500exc and he said he's used this, if the photo doesn't come out its a 9v battery with leads and clips. He said if the 500exc battery dies to put it on the battery with the clips then turn on and off the key several times to prime the fuel injection then kick it over. I'm wondering if anyone here has any info on this subject.
