Really common. Just takes a millisecond of a short circuit. Check all the wires for any bad insulation, breaks.

Eh? rectify beer

What I like about doing business w/Kev is that he fed me the beer in advance! I had to do very little, he did most of the work anyway

How much more for the one with a seat? Not that KTM seats can legally be called that.

All teasing aside, looks sweet.

Anyone have any suggestions to stop the swearing emanating from my garage nightly?

I was getting some clutch drag on the 06 525EXC, tried new fluid and bleeding. No change. Swapped out the Rekluse for the OEM clutch for easier trouble shooting.

I am getting no clutch lever action. The lever works (loads up, pushes piston, you can hear it actuate the throw out on the clutch basket side, etc) but it doesn't disengage the clutch basket. Once it's in gear the lever has no effect.

No leaks, the system has been bleed the standard way (pump lever), reverse bleed and vacuum bled multiple times. The Slave has been removed, cleaned and the gasket and Oring replaced (Piston Oring not replaced, but inspected and looks solid). Piston moves freely, no bore wear, cracks.

The clutch basket has been removed and replaced, properly torqued etc twice now again with no effect. Clutch install matches manual/fiche install (right order of washers, bolts, spacers and plates etc).

I don't want to take it in to a shop but I don't have any clue what to look at next. Anyone have an extra slave they don't mind parting with temporarily for a trouble shooting session to see if the issue is the slave or clutch side of things? Suggestions?

Maybe I should stick to working with headlights instead.....



Ryman, Trackhead, I PM'd you to see about meeting up for a mtn bike ride this week. Let me know if anything works. I'm around all week and I'll need to be taking a break from cursing at the KTM. Or I've heard beer has calming effect if we can't pull of a ride.....

anyone know of some good cafe's/diners.. preferably with outdoor seating that are bike friendly (parking and table where you can keep an eye on your bike?)

oh, and if that wasn't enough, near some nice scenery/roads

rode up to Ruth's Diner in emigration canyon sunday morning hoping we could sit out front, but apparently those tables/chairs are for "waiting" only
