I decided to take mine out today to check it, on my 2018 1090 Adventure RMy understanding is the LC8 design doesn’t bathe the clutch in oil so this “nozzle” (as KTM calls it) sprays the clutch with oil. I’ve seen posts that the hole is 1/50th of an inch and can become clogged. Symptoms are the clutch not fully disengaging (or drag), hard to find neutral..clutch being ”grabby”...etc.
Looks like a simple procedure however I’m 100% confident very few dealers even do this as part of the specified checklist.
Neutral had been getting harder and harder to find, so, I tried to service my jet today. Got the access cover off, but could not get the jet out.
That's a step further than I managed, couldn't work out if the cap was hex or torx fitting. Bought a 1/4" universal knuckle but haven't got around to trying again. How did you remove it?
I have ordered both parts, I wonder if the bike should be warm to help shift the cap? Hadn't considered removing the rectifier cover👍IIRC it’s either a T30 or T35 for the cap. As I posted earlier it’s a tight area and removing the sprocket and rectifier covers helps with access.
