    KTM 400 EXC 2005 Starting issues

    Hi I'm having some issues with my KTM 400 EXC, I've repalced the battery, starter motor, starter relay, clutch but i'm still having the same problem. The engine turns over really slowly as if the battery is dead, I've checked the voltage and the battery is reading 12v, press the starter button and the voltage can drop down to 2v. On a few occasions the bike will turn over normal but i haven't had the chance to measure what the battery is reading!!! I've also cleaned up the earth conection as i've read this also may cause issues. It will fire up in the end but might take a while and I need to keep the battery on charge while trying to get it started. It also does the slow turn over even when its been running for a while but it will fire up alot eaiser when its warm. I havent had any issues like this before but the bike had been stood for around 3 - 4 months through the summer last year without being used. Could something be sticking? Can anyone help?? Cheers Lee
