Two questions if you please.
1- Anyone heard of a remote (handlebar) hot start kit? Reaching underneath the seat really sucks
2- When using the engine to decelerate, it has an occasional pops. Am I running too lean? (factory settings)
1. The only handle bar hot start I have seen on the KTM is the bikes. It looks exactly the same as the reverse lever. Maybe loose the reverse cable & use that, or make your own. It is only a cable that pulls the hot start out. I have never had to use the hot start on my bike anyway.
2. Poping is usually a leak around the header pipe. Do a search on header leak fix.
