Was wondering if anyone knows of a diagram that shows the thickness and inner diameter size for each washer. I think I have it right but I want to be sure. And does it matter what direction the washers face? I'd imagine it does being that each thrust washer has a smooth edge and a sharper edge. I face the smooth edge of the thrust washers outwards if you know what I mean because if they are the other way around it wouldn't seem right. If anyone that has experience with this stuff can chime in that would be awesome
Recently bought a 2005 525 EXC with 88 hours/1900 miles.
Rode for about an hour just fine until I was on a slow climb, lost all pressure in clutch lever and rear wheel wouldn't release (roll in gear) with clutch pulled in. The bike acted like I didn't have the clutch pulled in. I rolled it down the hill and got it going, but the clutch lever was very hard to pull and shifting was notchy like I was shifting without clutch/rev-matching.
Got back to truck and lever pull feels good again. Got the bike going like normal for a couple takeoffs, now when I try to take off in first it just dies because the rear wheel wont free up.
Can shift into neutral and it rolls around fine.
So far I bled the system and refilled with 5W fork oil. Master was full so don't think slave is leaking. Going to pull the clutch cover tonight and see if i notice anything abnormal.
Any advice on things to look for/test? This is my first time working on the clutch. Any chance this could be a transmission issue?
Thanks!! Cant wait to get back on the trail.

Rebuilt my 2015 ktm 250 sx, new crank,piston,bearings,seals,etc. Test rode and it has 1st gear and fifth gear but 2nd,3rd,and 4th is like it's in neutral. Any thoughts before I tear it down again? I'm wondering if it's the shift drum because I kept both shafts in the same sequence when I removed.
