Default The KTM Duke 200 issues thread

Had been home for a few days and the bike was dirty, so on Saturday afternoon I decided to was the bike.

Left for gurgaon (from Noida) at 6:30pm and the Duke 200 gave me "high coolant temperature" warning at 7pm on Saturday evening, waited for an hour but still same error message. Once "high coolant temperature" message was displayed it was followed by "low fuel level" even though bike had around 6l of fuel.

Even on Sunday morning same error messages cycling through, the bike was parked at a friend's place overnight before taking it to the Service center on Sunday morning.

Coolant level was between mix and max. It is at the service center right now and they have not called me since yesterday. Even i was busy with some work so could not follow up.

Anyone else had the same issue on the D200 in the past and know the root cause?

Was the radiator fan working?

could not verify that as the bike did not start after that. It could very well be a radiator fan failure, but shouldn't it have cooled down after 12 hours?

no sir, the first thing i tried Sunday morning was starting the bike before getting it towed again. Same error message was displayed followed by low fuel level message.

That should never happen on a cold start! The high coolant temperature might be due to a busted coolant temperature sensor. Do get it checked. Also, the fuel float might also have some issue. I guess apart from these messages, the bike is starting and running right?

[EDIT]: Sorry. Just read your previous post again, the bike is not at all starting, right?

@man_of_steel - can't quote you as server is timing out.
but yes, the bike is not starting at all and am guessing it's because of the high coolant temperature message. still waiting on the service center to call me back, in the morning they said they are still looking into. will report back once i hear from them.

Just got a call from the service center, the problem remains. Either a problem with the wiring harness or the ecu is what they told me.

Service center is closed tomorrow so they will resume work on it day after and inform me before changing any valuable parts on the bike :(

Edit:-mods, last post was a few hours a back and am having issues multi-quoting with server not responding error.

no sir..it's a 2012 D200. How much are we looking at if it's the ECU?

Sorry, no clue at all! I am guessing that it should be north side of 10k for sure. But it can be a wiring fault too, let them get back.

No sir please, unless it is for making fun.

Really unfortunate!
Could this be related to the 'wash' you mentioned about? Hope you didn't direct a jet of water at sensitive areas!

I dont know if these service guys will be careful with the wash, ever. Earlier, some water seeped into the LHS indicator after their "thorough" wash. It has been replaced under warranty.

I am assuming it's related to the wash, but we shall know what really happened when the Service Center finds the root cause. They are closed today and will resume work on the bike tomorrow.

The feeling of not driving my bike for 2 more days has already got me sinking, I hate using public transport and that's what am forced to do :(

I keep hearing these sort of problems with the KTM bikes and end up having a question in my mind. Are they so vulnerable even to a water wash ? What sort of quality is ensured by Bajaj ? Some times I feel proud of them for their courage in doing things out of box, but I am equally disappointed by their mindset towards quality.
