    Thanks!

    Hi, I have a 1984 KTM 125 MX, The clutch mechanism doesn't seem to be aligned with the clutch rod, any suggestions before I start disassembling the engine?

    Mmh that is strange you should compare the items mounted to your clutch assembly with the explosion drawing of the part list, maybe something is missing, especially the small ball between rod and actuation unit.

    And yes KTMTalk is the Forum for KTM in general and for vintage / historic KTM'S of all ages in particular.

    Hi, I seem to be missing (2,3) all of these pieces, because the clutch rod doesn't seem getting enough leverage on the presssure plate. Any idea's for a part substitution, or where I could find these parts?

    That is a "Kupplungs Druckpliz Lager" should be available.

    In English a Clutch pressure mushroom bearing probably.

    I would use the part list number a ask a good KTM Dealer, in the US I can recommend KTM Munn Racing.

    Thanks, so it turns out I have those however, my push rod has signs of war so I'm going to remove the Black Arm and see if that's worn out too.

    So, I've gotten the entire clutch mechanism working. But I seem to have trouble finding the Carb Wiring, because I currently only have the fuel and another line from the Clutch casing going to one of the two ports, whereas the other port has no fuel line for some reason going to anything. I can get the bike started, but not running any suggestions? I've been dousing the carb with cleaner

    I'm currently have issues getting the clutch to fully engage in my 84' 125 MX do you have any suggestions? The rod and mechanism seem to be in great shape, but its not getting enough leverage to engage the clutch. Could it be that its not tight enough, but theres also a bit of wiggle room by the needle bearing washer the rod hits under the plate. It's also not the cable, anything would be greatly appreciated.
