    ktm starting headack

    no funny nosie, I knew i had a problem about a mile away form home. I just the rpms up and stayed above 30 mph. The one time i got out of it, going down a hill of it started to die becauese i was off the gas. other than that i ran and sounded great. If something like shearing a key happened would it die rate then. I was doing about 60 down the road for about 3 miles. Whats to find out pull the side cover and make sure when the flywheel said tds the piston is at tds.
