05 with 2200 miles

an 05 with only 2250 miles or whadevah WTF.... it's not been rode, just pushed up and down the driveway a bunch of times. I put 2500 the first month I had my 05, and I haddah work too. Something over 18,000 the first year, and most of the year it was raining where I was at. Course on a 3 week vacation I put between 6 & 7,000 miles on it too.

Over 18000 miles in the first year? Pfft; I did 12000 on my two week vacation.

D'oh! I was too stupid, I bought mine in town. I should have bought mine in some strange foreign land (like Texas) so I could have had a nice long ride when I brought it home.

Well I was headed for a solo Baja/Death Valley trip. I got about 175 miles before the clutch started slipping. I'm not sure why. It was all highway travel before it started slipping.


I did tow a BMW for 40 miles in Baja a few years ago. It was hard on the clutch but it hadn't shown any signs of slipping till now.

Anyway what's the current wisdom for new a clutch?

Just a guess, but you most likely did an oil service before your trip....is it possible you did not not use a proper motorcycle rated oil with the additives for keeping the clutch from slipping?

AUT, is KTM ownership in Austria as "proud" I guess would be the word, as Harley ownership is in the U.S.?

I did do a service. Used the same oil that I have for the last 20k miles. I have also used the same oil in my XR with out issue.
