1991 Kawasaki KX 250 super tight clutch

1991 kx 250. clutch is super tight. Nothing inside is broken. checked parts diagram on website to see if im missing a washer or something. everything is there. the cable is old but when i took it off, it is not bound. the plates are sort of worn but that shouldnt make it super tight to pull the lever. nothing inside seems bound when i have the basket off either but as soon as i put the clutch spring bolts in its too tight again. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!

You may have very heavy duty clutch springs making it hard to pull i would reccomend that you buy a stock set of springs for the bike.

Help is at Hand (Excuse pun),
This problem described strongly relates to a seizing clutch cable or frayed.
If you remove it try and pull/push the inner with your fingers there should be No resistance, you may get away with a good oiling but I would recommend replacement.
Good Luck!

Hi, Darrell and the usual suspects are:

There's a knocking noise coming from behind the casing at the pedal for the back break on my kx 250

that will be the clutch you will need to remove the oil and the case and do an inspection to check if parts are worn or broken

I was riding along and the clutch just stoped working,apon further review i noticed the clutch lever on the engine came up what do i have to do to get it back in place kx 250 2001

Remove the right crankcase cover. Loosen the four springs. Remove the left crankcase cover and push the clutch shaft inward about 1/4". Now re-insert the clutch arm and put the left cover back on. Next tighten the clutch springs, 22ft lbs, then put the right cover back on. All Fixed! Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.
