    2015 Husqvarna TE 300

    I just picked up a a 15TE300 this summer for $4500 from a really really good friend. Had 110hr on it, I love the bike, that price is probably in the right neighborhood for that bike. 300's are hard to find they are either worn out or at the very top end of the price range. Ride the bike again and spend at least 20-30 minutes on it, if it feels good and you feel good get it. I have put another 15hrs on mine since I got it and love the bike, only changes I've made to it: added my steering stabilizer and a Lectron carb from Slavens. My suspension had already been reworked by Kreft and he had added mouse bibs already

    Battery died. Can it be saved?

    I had one do that once, had to put it on the trickle charger for a couple of hours for a boost then back to the lithium battery tender. It was too drained for the lithium tender to get it going. (the battery Joe guys told me to use the trickle charger for a couple of hours to start it)

    Getting no power to the starter

    I left one item out, make sure your ground connection is good sometimes they come loose. Jmc

    Getting no power to the starter

    Check off list: Battery good Fuses good Start button and kill switch checked out good Starter rolls when you short the two connections on starter relay good Yes probably the relay switch, (find a KTM with electric start and swap out the relay before you spend the $50 but I'd bet a $1 its your relay) Also Slavens has a pretty good video that shows the same process of checking out starter issues.

    Getting no power to the starter

    I have a 15 TE300, same issue took it around the block started fine first time next time no click nothing. Checked fuses, then shorted across the starter relay and could get the starter to turn over (that told me it was not a starter issue). Next step was to check the buttons, all looked good. Swapped out a starter relay from a 01 KTM (the relay is identical) and she fired right up. Ordered a new starter relay. It would appear the starter relays they are using now are cheap! My 01 relay is almost 20 years old and the crappy one is 3 years old, go figure.
