HughMungus posted a topic in KTM 2 StrokeI have a 2017 KTM 300 XC-W with a little more than 5 hours on it. Since day one I've noticed that the clutch drags a bit. When on the stand with the clutch pulled all the way in, the wheel will spin pretty fast, I also notice it when pulling in the clutch when going down hill. I'm wondering if I should back bleed the master cylinder, I'm also wondering if using the Zeta folding levers which were installed by the dealership is causing increased travel... maybe I should throw on the factory levers.
I recently installed a clever lever from MWME and I am getting the following issues: Clutch dragging, bike on level ground, warm engine. Pull in lever (disengage clutch), put it in first gear, me off the bike, bike creeps forward. Clutch slipping at higher rev, full throttle. In the fall I put Motul Transoil 10w40 (it used to have Amsoil Dirt 10w60 sythetic) then put the bike away for winter. Before even starting the engine, I installed the Clever lever and eyeballed the plunger travel. Issue #1, I think can be easily fixed by increasing plunger travel (small screw). Issue #2 is puzzling. I fail to see how it would be related to the clutch lever not fully disengaging the clutch, it's the complete opposite of issue #1 . I have no reason to suspect a bad batch of Motul transoil. Am I missing something?
My crf250r clutch doesn't seem to engage, If i have the rear wheel off the ground and with clutch pulled in and switch to first gear the tire spins rapidly, if i hold the clutch in all the way to the bar it will eventually stop the wheel. Doesn't feel like the clutch is working correctly. I played with the free play and nothing seems to help. any ideas what i should do
I recently bout a 17 ktm 50sx off of another owner. At first the ktm rode fine, and the tire somewhat free spun. After a couple of rides the rear wheel started to have some drag. I noticed at that time the rear brake was sticking. So I changed out the rear brake pads, then later the disk. After resolving those issues it didn’t take long before the rear wheel started to drag again. Now the rear wheel has no free spin. I’m wondering if the clutches need changed? Or a bearing issue? I took off the chain and the tire freely spins, so whatever the case is something internally with clutch or a bearing of some sort... please help
