2015 KTM 300 exc dead as a dodo

Hi.

My 300 decided to die on an organised ride. I took it to the local mech and he could not get it going.

It is electrical and the bike has no spark. I'm not technical or electrical minded and would like to have someone fix it.
I'm in the north eastern parts of Melbourne and would like to know if there is someone who is recommended in these parts.

You could give Jon 0411414910 from RPM Factory in Warrandyte a go. He use to also own a 300 exc so knows them well.

I might have a good look at the bike when I go to fetch it. Any pointers ? Anything I can check verify? Bikes are not that complicated surely ....

Awesome. Thanks. I'm in Eltham so that's nice and close. I'll give him a call in the morning.

Disconnect each kill swtich on either side of the bars and check for spark. Should be a black wire with yellow stripe.
Been caught before.
