13 450 SXF Spring Stuck To Oil Drain Magnet?

Recommended Posts

I thought I noticed some increased vibrations. I just did an oil change, I found a small spring (looks like the kind of spring in the clutch lever), stuck to the oil drain magnet.  No other metal particles on magnet or in filter.  Where did this come from?

I had the same thing happen to my bike, 2013 450 XC-F. Found it was a spring from the small seal in the clutch cover that engages the end of the crank. You just have to pull off the clutch cover to inspect it. In the pictures you can see the seal inside the cover and where it engages onto the crank. The replacement seal you get from KTM will be different (single lip) but is the same size, be sure you instal it with the lip/spring in toward the cover.

Did you ever find out where this spring came from. It has happened to me. My spring isn't a seal spring.

Mine looks like a clutch lever spring as you described
