awesome 2005 300 exc wont start

     

Hello all....My ktm 2005 300 exc had a problem where 1st gear it would not pull but then from second if I accelerate slowly the bike pulls but when I open the throttlle with a little bit of speed it does not want to pull....sounds like it is struggling to get into the powerband or maybe mis firing....and now I cant get it to start...engine has very high compression.....any idee of where I can start to look....this is my first ktm

I'd start out with checking the spark plug (replace if you haven't recently) and making sure you have a nice, hot spark. If the bike has been sitting quite a bit, you might consider cleaning the carb as well to eliminate that variable.
