KTM Ignition

Recommended Posts

I have a 2008 KTM 450 EXC-R. The ignition is shuting down for some reason. I checked the kill switch and it isnt the problem. I have confirmed that spark is shuting off. However all I have to do is wait from 2 to 10 minutes and it comes alive. The time it runs, dies and runs again isn't consistant. Any Ideas?
