Help with clutch please

Recommended Posts

Hey I just picked up a 2000 kx250. Noticed tonight messing with it when its in gear and I pull in on the clutch to push the bike It wont move like I didnt even pull in the clutch at all I tryed to adjust it no Diff. Where should I start? I have not yet put the bike in gear with it running. I'm thinking at this point that may not be a good idea lol. thanks for any help hende.

it means the clutch is strong, it has good springs, and typically unless you run it, they will not move the rear wheel when they are cold. start it up and run it up and down the street, it should loosen up a little.

Put lighter weight oil in the gearbox, the plates are probably stuck together. I had 20 - 50 in mine and the clutch wouldn't disengage well. I freed up the clutch plates and used ATF. No more problems.

If the atf doesnt work then the plates are probably Glazed and you need to replace them...
