So when I was racing Brooksville about a month ago I was running a inside the top 10 out of 38 guys on the first lap and on the 5th mile my bike just stopped moving. I could rev it as much as I want and the bike will just move slowly or won't move.
I have a KTM 350SXF with the Rekluse Core EXP clutch. I'm not sure if it needs to be adjusted or if I need new clutch plates.
Sorry this is really last minute but if anyone can help me out ASAP early this week so I can race on March 1st that would be awesome! If it's just adjusting it that would be good... but if I have to order parts I'll have to do that and probably have to have the parts 2 day shipped or overnighted from somewheres.
Hey man, sorry to hear that. I know you've been working hard and really wanting to turn your luck around.
It sounds like the clutch is gone. Your bike has the external adjustable slave cylinder from Rekluse, so you could always mess with it and see if it fixes it. Should be a real quick check, but my money is on the clutch itself. I would suggest getting the clutch kit from KTM. BBMS will hook you up. The kit includes friction plates, metal discs and springs. Do you know if Rekluse provides stiffer springs with the kit you have? If so, BBMS should be able to get them as well. You may have to call Rekluse to make sure you have the right part numbers. Have whoever does the work (you?) inspect the basket and pressure plate closely. Once any heat and/or warping happens then you're probably just throwing money away if you try to shortcut it. The core EXP system is not cheap at all, so hopefully its in good shape. Good luck, hope to see you out there.
Thanks man, my bikes down at the shop in Daytona. We just have to get some parts in time and fix the clutch as well as some other misc. things I need to get done. Haven't ridden in about 9 weeks but I'll just send it at the GNCC and see what goes down
