Question about 2001 KTM EXC 300
My 01 ktm 300 won't shift out of 1st. Rode it for over an hour and had no problems. stopped for a minute and it wouldn't shift back. do you know what the problem mght be?
You have a bent shift fork. The repair means taking the engine out of the frame then removing the top end, removing the flywheel and electrics, removing the clutch , shift mechanism and kick starter and a few other parts. THEN you are ready to split the gearbox to remove the crankshaft and then the bent shift fork. Next you get to put it all back together. This is a pretty big job for the home mechanic.
You will need an impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter and torque wrench plus the normal screwdriver, pliers, etc.. Alternate to the special tools is taking it to the dealer and say "Fix it".
I normally tell people to take it to the shop just so they don't get into such an involved project.
Please rate this solution. Thanks
