500 clutch
« on: September 08, 2020, 10:28:02 PM »
Hi
Iím finding the clutch to be heavy when on single track and woods ,Iím thinking of changing a few springs  from a 250, or using some washers with the oem springs to lighten the clutch.Are the  spring sizes the same for both bikes?

Has anyone done this to their bike ?

Thanks

Lively responsive group here aye?

I'd like to know the same thing as well but for a 2020 SE Factory 250....unfortunately, some people can't seem to detail "what year" bike they have in some of these threads. I've attached a photo of the recommended (from this forum) KTM spring part #54832080000 next to the OEM spring from my 2020 SE Factory 250. On appearance alone, this doesn't seem right.

It's obvious the 2 springs are different sizes in both length and diameter.
The bolt "bell washer" doesn't sit inside the KTM spring, only sits on top (owing to smaller diameter), notice how it sits inside the OEM spring. Is this supposed to be this way with the KTM spring and what others have experienced?

Thx

Think I would try the 9mm master cylinder.
Maybe something in this thread might help.

Yeh , well slow this place!
Iíve been told to change to 9mm m/c, might be a better way to make the pull  easier, that with a midway lever could be a good set up!
Thanks for the link!
Iíve changed lever from a shorty back to normal length, which has helped a bit.
