WR250F Clutch won't fully disengage engine

Recommended Posts

Not sure if my clutch is gone or if it's an adjustment thing.

When clutch all the way in, engine is still spinning the rear wheel.

I have tried major and minor adjustments...no luck.

Have barkbuster guards, and maybe they prevented the clutch from fully releasing.....

Any clues ? or should I just take a look at the clutch plates.....

Only 1000 miles on the magic.....so far.

Thanks for any tips. I need to ride. :banghead:

Some times if your bike sits for long periods, the clutch plates will get sticky. If you ride it a bit, it may stop.

Or this may be because your clutch is dragging a bit. Check www.thumperfaq.com for the 79cent washer fix.

The washer fix works for some, not me. But heavy duty springs did the trick. Try those if the washers are ineffective before spending alot.

We had that problem on most of our bikes, just a slight drag. Dropping from 20W50 oil to a 10W30 made all the difference for us, especially in the colder weather.

If the clutch is stuck hard, try to get it started and ride a short distance with the clutch pulled-in. You'll want to excellerate and decellerate to put pressure on the clutch plates. I had to do this a couple of times on my earlier TTR225.....
