04 Ktm 85 troubles

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,My sis recently bought a 04 ktm 85 sx and is for some reason having trouble shifting from 2nd up.It goes into neutral fine and from there first and second but after that it locks up.It shifted fine for me earlier and i find this odd.she didn't drop it so the selector fork can't be bent.She was keeping up with me earlier on my 250f so she must have been in a higher gear than second unless it was a 20 tooth rear sprocket(it isn't).Also what are you guys running in the clutch side.I have always ran bel ray 80w or ATF but in the manual it says run engine oil 15w 50.I realise both will lubricate it but what runs better in your opinion.thnx for the help.

Hi,

If you mean in the master cylinder then it has to be MINERAL oil, which works fine. You should make sure the gearbox has Light gear box oil in it. Thats what i run my 04 sx 85 on anyway and no problems at all!

Hope this is useful
