ktm 105 problem...help!


Recommended Posts

hey guys i just picked up a 2007 105 for my wife. its a great bike but i changed the oil before a 2hr ride and the oil was already black. i had wiped the mud off the magnetic drain plug and it already had more. im thinkin its probably time for a new clutch but thats just a guess.

clutch is alum stock and that is not magnetic so that shouldnt be what is on the mag drain plug. An alum clutch will turn the oil black tho so as Fred said if you change go to steel plates. As long as the stuff on the mag is just black sludge then its normal.

thanks guys. should the oil be black after only one ride tho? is it time for a new clutch?

YES!!! it normal for the oil to turn black that fast and if the clutch is not slipping it good to go...

If you want to clean the engine just fill the case with diesel push the kill switch and kick it over a few times and drain. It will not hurt anything...
