Clutch not engaging

Recommended Posts

I have a 1990 KTM 2 stroke, and the clutch wont engage. i tried adjusting the screw at the hand grip, but that is already extended out pretty far. i ran the bike 2 weeks ago fine, and then it sat in my garage. I just tried starting it today, but i realized the clutch wont engage. I don't know much about these bikes so im looking to get a second opinion about what i am looking for.

Is it cold? Can you start the bike in neutral, get it warmed up properly and then try?

Has the clutch cable stretched too far?

i changed the oil, and ran it for a while. the clutch started working after about 15 min. i'm not sure what was wrong, i think it just got jammed up. the oil wasn't bad but after the change it seemed to work. i ran it for a while and it worked fine. i'm gonna have my buddy check it out over Christmas break just to make sure i'm not missing something.
