    18 yz250x clutch multiple clutch failures.

    We did put the original on and he rode it for a few hours in pretty technical stuff and it didn’t fail! Still weird why the protaper one wouldn’t work. It did worry me a little bit after the bike heated up the clutch did finally start working. But then again the bike was sitting for a while after we adjusted, loaded it up and drove in cold weather. Then when we got to the spot it worked no problem. He may be coming around because you can see he is almost sick looking knowing his bike has had some issue.

    So we are back to the clutch. He has the protaper perch and lever. When we first thought it was set right with it pulled in and going into gear the bike will just stall. Now with some tinkering I’m able to get it in gear without stalling but now as pictured is the engagement point for the motor before having to throttle to keep it running. He put on a new cable too and also a whole new clutch plates and frictions along with a new inner hub and basket.

    Everything was installed correctly for sure. It has to be him because the same thing happened to his Husqurvana TE250 twice! He was at a race and the motor literally got so hot that the oil cap burst off and the cloud of smoke from his bike had the whole crowd laughing. Then it was downhill from there until he got rid of the bike for the ya.

    Thanks for the replies. I guess we will see how it goes when he replaces everything again....

    It happened again....after 1 lap of a woods race about 10 minutes the same failure occurred where the bike just doesnt connect and the clutch looks smoked. Right before the race he replaced the clutch basket, inner hub, clutch and oil and did not ride it at all. Now he thinks it’s the clutch cable being too tight or something. He ordered a new cable and a pro taper clutch and lever set up. What is your consensus now? Even if he is operating the bike incorrectly how could he have the same thing occur with all new parts? We are just at a loss here.

    Dang man sorry to hear about your injuries! Yea my buddy cares about his bike a lot and I can tell he gets that pit in his stomach when something is wrong with it and wants to get it fixed. He never listens to me like he didn’t recall me telling him to put yz springs or every other spring from last July until I read him the thread from last July when this happened for the first time! He also never listens to my advice from the pros on here vs guys at some shops who I know who arnt that knowledgeable that sell him parts based on fear. I can’t tell you how many oil changes he has on a bike with 40 hours...well with all the new parts coming today it’s going to be a matter of time if it’s him or the bike!

    Seriously I’m truly convinced he doesn’t know how to use it. I learned my lesson years ago when I heard the worst grinding noise accidentally shifting while on the gas. This weekend I’m gonna put his bike and him on the stand and observe.

    Did you happen to buy this bike off a kid named Jared in Rhode Island? If so he needs a boot up his *** because he’s known for doing this with bikes adding random parts on “newer” bikes.

    He and I actually had a discussion about shifting and the same thing happened to his Husky TE250...he mentioned he power shifts and let’s off the gas somewhat. He isn’t the brightest bulb but dang he is a good electrician lol. I feel like he doesn’t let off the throttle when shifting but he claims he does. He’s only 150lbs and he is switching to Yz springs. He always puts 750ml and has changed the oil a lot due to going through 3 clutches already and always wants to keep an eye on how it looks. We have adjusted and have other people adjust it too properly. He has now purchased all new internals, inner hub, basket, plates, frictions. He is so convinced something is wrong but I think it is his “power shifting” that he doesn’t realize he is doing. Whenever I ride behind him I always hear him revving so oddly. My other buddy says the same. I’ll keep you all posted!

  13. Posting for my buddy since I’m at a loss too. 18 yz250x brand new 41 hours and have replaced the clutch plates and frictions three times now due to the fact after riding at random points it loses all contact and just acts like it’s in neutral. The gears shift fine but it’s like the clutch is constantly over heating and we have to wait about a half hour before it works again. What is going on here. I posted about this before and someone mentioned 250 springs which I’ve been telling him to do and I think he finally will but what is the root of this problem? We were riding track today and it happened but sometimes it happens in the woods. I know the last time was in a sand pit so it seems to me it’s a heat issue. Yet I have a 250 and hammer on it that probably has 150 hours on the clutch and never skips a beat. Thanks.
