WTF did you do ? You just got that bike  !  :o

called "bonding" :biggrin:

You don't own it unless you've stripped it at least once :cheers:

One of the great truisms of biking.  :thumleft:

Enjoy it!  'n Mens leer so baie van jou bike op daardie manier.  Toe ons die tdub gestrip en van die frame af oor gedoen het, het ek darem so bietjie van die mechanics geleer.  Nog nie genoeg nie, maar dis 'n begin.  Nou staan daar 'n tweede tdub in ons garage.  Wag ook om oorgedoen te word!  Jy gaan dit baie geniet!

MAy I offer some valueable advise (even without beer) . If its a problem with the gears, start looking for the gearbox.  ;D It must be there somewhere...

Jeepers Thump, were you bored ?

You never had this problem with the KLR did you ?

PS, now you own this high tech piece of machine, will you donate that pair of F%@ck Off size pliers that are good for stripping fences to fix KLR's to a worthy KLR owner  ?  :imaposer:

Because it's so hi-tech
I use a rubber mallet instead of a hammer.

Not sure it works as well though

And I still have 2 KLRs in our house so need the pliers LOL

I found a universal "Special Tool"

Very special tool ... It fixes all KTM issues.

Step 1 : Smash KTM to pieces ... Completely destroy !!
Step 2 : Look for new BMW F800 GS !
Step 3 : Buy new BMW F800 GS !
Step 4 : Be happy man for rest of your life !
Step 5 : After 1000 000km , go back to Step 2 !

Do yourself a favor. On the ADV rider forum in the technical section there is a thread on these KTM's.
The man that started it is Pyndon, he's basically rebuilt his LC8 and did a very informative documentation of the whole process.

Thumb,

Went to see my friend and here is what he has to say.

1. Open the clutch cover.
2. Take out the clutch basket
3. Check the "star" for wear, however the picture is of an ATV "star"


Now the above was before you strip the engine, however in your case it is stripped so you have to check for wear on the selector cam



and wear on the selector forks



Hope you get to the root of the problem.

Thanks Skaiidawg.

I found the problem.
When the hammer didn't work I got the lawyer in.

Ok, there was a piece broken out of the selector drum. found in the bottom.
Luckily did not get stuck in any gears.

Also found a crack in the balancer cams engine gear,

and a shim was damaged by not being correctly placed

and there is a bit of wear on the outer clutch basket.

Now to order the parts and hope I can remember how to put it all back together again.

I think the lawyer is only in the garage to get the scon pan that you scaled from the kitchen to put all the nuts and washers in!!!!

Hope you are not left over with a hand full of nuts and bolts.Hope you find the problem not nice to see a ktm like that.
