Hi, I have been having some problem with the clutch on my XR250 - and havent been able to solve it. Im hoping someone amongst the wise in this forum can help me solve it. The problem is it drags. Badly! But not necessarily consistently (on rare occasions, I will pull up and it will be fine). When in 1st and clutch in, I have to brace my leg to stop it from trying to drive fwd. Gear changes are hard - finding neutral nearly impossible. In 1st gear, with clutch in, if I give it a bit of revs (not much), then the clutch seems to 'disengage' - as soon as revs drop again, it grabs again. Here is the evidence to hand so far: Its a 98 XR250V - a japanese import to the UK. 1) It was fine when I bought it (2nd hand 18 months ago). 2) The problem started after it was in storage for the first 9 months. 3) I have given it fresh oil & filter - no difference 4) raising the revs (perhaps double revs at idle) stops it from dragging 5) lowering the revs, makes it drag again. 6) I pulled out the clutch today to inspect it 6a) only very very slight roughness/indentations/scoring on the clutch basket 6b) No obvious discolouration of any discs 6c) no obvious warped discs 6d) the metal discs seem glassy smooth (not sure what they are supposed to be like) 7) Just after I replaced the clutch & filled with oil (oil was low) I tried it and the clutch was much much better. However, I went for a short ride - and it was very quickly back to as bad as it was previously. It feels like its oil related: When I just replaced the oil, it was good. When it had time to circulate, it was crap again. BTW, the clutch lever/cable adjustment is fine. Has been checked & adjusted both ways (too tight/too loose) with little difference. It was clear someone (previous owner(s)) has been into the clutch before me - there was sealant on the gasket. There were also washers - used as spacers to reduce spring preload. Maybe there has been a problem before? Im outa ideas - need some help. Id appreciate any suggestions that lead to a solution.
