sx-f 250 2012 clutch problems...help

Recommended Posts

so my 2012 ktm sx-f seems to be running weird. Well the clutch is. so i strongly believe the clutch isn't in-gauging  properly, but im not sure  why. I need to let it warm up before i can pull the clutch in an put it into first it is semi cold then it'll just stall out. Also in my shop today i let it warm up put it in first got going and then i just left it in first and held the clutch in, and i just kept going. Like the bike was still pulling me along even though i had the clutch fully engaged. please help all information will be appreciated.

 

Is it just i need to bleed the hydraulic line and make sure there's no air bubbles in it? i have it set on the lever so that it pulls in as much as it can.. is there another adjustment place for the clutch? do i need new clutch plates?? let me know guys. thanks.

Sounds like a basket issue.

Lay bike on its side and check the clutch basket. Take cover off and inspect it good. Something is wacked.

Could be grooves in basket not letting the clutch fully work.

Exact same issue with my 2013 250. I haven't opened up the clutch yet to check as it's not as bad as yours. When cold the bike will start moving or stall with clutch pulled in. When hot it will be a bit better. If you find the reason please let me know. Anyone else here any tips about what to look for when I do open the clutch?

check your oil filter 484083_10151563393364002_1298636138_n.jp 

 

this caused my clutch to be grabby and make the shifting notchy. some how the filter got sucked down

They get sucked down when you don't fill the oil cavity , when changing the filter
