Idle & Cold Start Screw adjustment how-to | late model KTM EXC dirt bikes with EFI systems

I pointed out in my first ride video for my KTM 500EXC-F that the bike had a tendency to flame out quite a bit more than I thought it should, and after adding the GET ECU, I had a few issues restarting the beast.

Graham Jarvis On The Mobcast | Episode 1 | That's It Then In'it?

“Why fucking just get a bit of time on him, you know what I mean”, he thought, and when pushing a bit harder he hit a rut and was faced with the choice we have all made hundreds of times - put a foot down or fall off the bike. At Javis’ pace, putting a foot down means it is hitting the ground at a pretty good clip, and even with knee braces on “somethings gotta give, especially when you are tired as well, in’it.” He had an ACL injury 20 years before, so he knew that he was in for months of recovery.
