Kawi/nomadf1 1500 clutch will not engage.

I have a 02 nomadf1 1500, has not been ridden in a while, only to start up and let to idle. One day I decided to take it for a spin, and the bike would not go into first gear, never had a problem before. It makes a grinding sound and catches the gear and lunges forward and dies. The bike has less than 8k on it, help with( rider-down). Thanks, Phil

Hi, Anonymous your starter motor is not the problem it's the starter drive/Bendix/clutch which is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Clutch does not engage well, especially when cold. First shift into gear will always stall motor.


to me this seems a case of many things not 100% set up properly.

big singles do burn a lot of oil, so either its low or just the wrong viscosity, check with a KTM forum as a lot of users will have already had this problem and rectified it.


but the first thing i'd check first is: Idle speed (if its FI then shouldnt be a problem) valve clearances and it also depends on whether you have any mods?



a race spec pipe will always cause issues starting cold.

Low idle when engine is warm


Idle is normally set a bit higher anyway for a cold engine. If the warm idle is OK when the clutch is not engaged and gearbox in neutral, then it points to some kind of severe friction in the area of the clutch throw-out bearing, which may be seizing up, or the clutch pressure plate fingers, one of which may be broken off. If the idle is the same, then that simply needs adjusting.


Is there any odd noise when the clutch is depressed, like a low growl? That will be the bearing. You could have someone listen next to the clutch bell housing while you work the clutch pedal, to try to localise it.

I have a Montero Sport 2003, last week I had Freon added to be prepared for the summer, I noticed a noise and ask the mechanic, he said it was the fan but nothing to worry about. I drove the Montero for 2...


If the noise started after you added the Freon, then it perhaps is your AC clutch. Normally if you have an automatic AC system, then when the Freon gets low, the auto system will not allow the AC to engage, only allowing the fan to circulate outside air. In order to add Freon to the system, the AC lock out has to be over ridden, in order for the compressor to **** in the Freon. This in turn engages the AC system so that the clutch engages, thus engages your AC system. The clutch bearings may be at fault.

When i engage the clutch and select any gear the bike will leap forward and stall.In other words I cannot pull the clutch in and start the bike.


If the bike hasn't been ridden for a while, select top gear, (engine off) and with the clutch pulled in rock the bike back and forth. That may free the clutch.

Kdx 200 clutch not engaging properly


The clutch in your bike is a wet clutch. There is a lot of hyrdostatic friction even when the clutch is released completely. I think a large factor is the type, age and condition of oil. Perhaps something as simple as an oil change would help.

Clutch will not release


remove the gearbox to replace the clutch.this will teach you not to hold it on hills on the clutch but to put handbrake on and neutral.also the same at traffic lights and no boy racer flying starts where accelerator is floored and clutch ridden slowly to get most power to wheels,still its not difficult to change and clutches not that expensive if you do it yourself,garage price around 800 euros
