Question about 2008 KTM 250 SX-F
2007 ktm 250sxf has 17 hours bought it used. When its first cranked and you try putting it in gear it jumps foward and cuts off with the clutch pulled in. Once the bike gets hot the clutch seems to work good.I went ahead and changed the oil and the screen on bottom had a couple of pieces of metal.
This is the same with all 4 strokes. they all need to heat up before you can ride them, but this is not a problem.

Hi! Please try adjusting your clutch cable Or if fluid operated bleed the system if still the same adjust the push rod that opens the clutch assembly.
If you have a cable operated clutch adjust it so when you pull the lever you want 3/4mm gap before the tension starts the bite/operation of your clutch.(If it starts slipping under load back off a couple mm)
It is quite normal for a little swarf (Small bits/metal) to be in clutch case but only a small amount.
This should do the trick!
Good luck and Merry Christmas from Paul 'W'
