thats actually a worrying diagnosis, not very common report and possibly a part or parts jammed and damaged in any of the 3 main clutch areas..Hi, my Clutch all of the sudden behaves like a brake lever. Very stiff, won’t depress fully and also it is not disengaging the clutch fully. I tried bleeding, no luck. What can cause this? Thanks
‘you called it brother 👍Good move..... something's come loose somewhere and it'll be covered by warranty if it's not just a torque job.
I once had a screw loose in my crutch........ ....... no really, I did, and the 3 day old FZR1000 slowly lost gears until it was stuck in 3rd....... fixed by dealer, no parts needed, just cover off, screw back in place and torqued up tight..........
Let us know what the KTM tech finds
....... I got one right...... ......... I promise not to let it go to my head........... but seriously, the clutch nut coming loose after only 5k miles........ that's scary........ I suppose the robot torque tooling had gone out of spec just as your bike was going down the line ......... just as it happened on my Jap bike back in 1994 .‘you called it brother 👍
you are correct. It was #12. I just visited the dealer to have a look. It had loctite , but there is no other means of securing it. The washer is flat and has no splines. clutch was slipping and started to overheat. Plates turned blue, hence their recommendation to replace the plates, pending KTM’s approval. There is also a recall to replace gear shift shaft, they are going to knock that out while it is all apart on that side.i guess it was no 12.
Hello have you tried checking your cable make sure its not frayed also make sure your clutches aren't sticking. When is the last you changed the oil ?Hi, my Clutch all of the sudden behaves like a brake lever. Very stiff, won’t depress fully and also it is not disengaging the clutch fully.

G'day Spanky42,Hello have you tried checking your cable make sure its not frayed also make sure your clutches aren't sticking. When is the last you changed the oil ?
No issue here with putting miles on bikes. You can go up, down, left and right. 👍5/6k miles seems to be the recurring feature with this problem. Mine did the same about 5 months ago ( 2015 bike) I fettled mine, more by luck than skill, no special tools or anything. I found a post from a couple of years back where the lad did the same as I did but damaged an oil pump gear in the process.
As for putting 6k miles on a bike since April....lucky lucky B'stards. Have the US police been targeting bikers moving between Covid restricted areas?
Why the head bearing adjustment? Was it a bad day at the factory when they built yours?No issue here with putting miles on bikes. You can go up, down, left and right. 👍
good job on getting it fixed DIY style. This is not an easy job. I got free oil change out of mine. Also had steering head bearing adjusted.

I bought mine second hand(3rd owner) as original.
Then whilst browsing through the lovely folder that came with it I found a receipt from a local remap company ( that don't have the best reputation)
I had an idea about the SAS delete. Watched the rottweiler video a few times then realised the canister had been removed from mine with no dongle attached. Bought a set of O2 sensor blanks and resistors from eBay, I messaged the tuning fella and he replied about an hour after I'd installed them advising against it!! Had a few short runs and it doesn't seem to have caused any problems so I'm sticking with it for the time being.
Fingers crossed we are all vaccinated against Covid by the time the ****ty weather lifts and we can bang some miles in without getting £200 fines from the Cops😁
