Letís start a fight - Dead 2016 KTM 690 - Best place in Victoria to get it running ag

Iíve owned a KTM 690 with a full adventure ****** pack since new. I bought it without thinking a lot about it.

Life gets in the way and itís never really been used to anywhere near itís full potential.

Itís now done 2800kms and hasnít looked like starting since it broke down and I ****ed around with it for a few weeks.

Itís sat for a year and now itís time to get it going to either ride or sell.

Whatís the best place in Victoria to get it going like new and then I can decide what to do?

Open to all suggestions.

FFS. Hank, it's not a F1 car. Those things are simple as dogshit, ANY competent bike mechanic will get it going...

Not so sure how simple they are. It can be a longer process of elimination than a carby bike that's for sure. That can lead to expensive time consuming troubleshooting at any bike shop, so I'd be taking it to someone who has plenty of experience on that model.

Sorry I'm not from Vicco.

There's some really great threads on advrider to get your mind working as to what might be a possible issue.

I've recently been working on mine, and have first hand experience of the myriad of possibilities. Mines an '08 though.

You would be amazed at how complex they can make a simple thing.

The biggest problem is finding a ďcompetentĒ Mechanic as so far two have said take it to KTM as they donít have the diagnostic software.

Iím over the whole thing.
