Problem on my ktm 450sxf 2007 model inner hub on the clutch

Your hub on the shaft - the nut is too tight. The nut is pushing the hub too far on the shaft and making it a drag. Need to back the nut off and torque it at factory spec. That could be somewhere between and 12-15 lbs. This has happened to someone else I know.

When I install clutch basket hub on my 1978 superglide 1200cc, I torque the nut to 50-60 ft lbs. Transmission will not turn. Seems to be in a bind. Loosened nut, transmission frees up. The manual shows no...

The inner clutch hub fits onto the tapered mainshaft of the transmission. If I understand you correctly, you are saying that when you put the inner hub on and torque the nut, it locks up and will not turn. The mainshaft has a woodruf key in it that goes into a slot in the in hub. If this key is pushed out when installing the clutch, it will become trapped between the hub and the inner primary housing locking the clutch assembly up. Sometimes getting the inner hub on without knocking this key out can be a daunting task for someone that is new at it. Take the hub back off, put the key in the mainshaft using a thick grease or something. Look into the hole in the inner hub as you install it and make sure the key is aligned with the slot.

Good Luck

One day i was comin off the exit ramp downshifted in order to come to the stoplight. I was at a complete stop and put the bike in first gear. The engine revved as i let go of the clutch but there was no...

It will not be a bent shift fork. If the clutch lever feels the same pulling the lever in and out as it did before the problem came up then chances are the clutch is okay. Does the lever at the gearbox move properly when the hand lever is moving in and out? Is the clutch cable hanging up on something? I think you are going to find either a broken woodruff key on the gear at the right end of the crankshaft or clutch plates hanging up on the clutch hub. The broken key would prevent power from going to the ring gear on the outer clutch hub. The clutch plates can wear grooves into the clutch inner and or outer hubs. Too deep a groove and the plates can be unable to be compressed by the clutch springs. The result is no power being transmitted through the clutch. Another possibility is a broken shift shaft arm or arm spring. The right engine side cover will need to be removed so you can then do a visual inspection of the crankshaft gear, clutch hub and shift shaft lever. If I knew the year and model and engine size of your Yamaha bike I could offer more exact diagrams. The one below are generic. Go to and you can see an exploded view of your specific engine.

The shifting problem is a bent shift fork. The clutch problem is chatter on the outer, and/or inner, clutch hub and fiber friction plates. The friction plates are catching in grooves worn into the clutch hub by the friction plate tabs. The hub should be smooth. I created a diagram of the shift system and of the clutch to give you an idea of how they work. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_67.gif

Clutch locked up on my 82 Suzuki dr250 I am at a loss what should I do.

your clutch is simply a stack of friction disks and metal plates. The friction disks are splined into the outer hub ring and alternate, one friction disk / one plate / one friction disk / one plate etc. It's very simple to free this up if it's locked up. remove clutch cover. If you are unsure which is your clutch cover, follow the clutch lever cable to the actuator arm. remove the cable from arm and all bolts holding the cover. as you pull out the cover, you will see the arm rotate that's because it's geared into an arm that is connected to the front plate of the clutch basket assembly. You'll see it as soon as you pull it off. now you'll be looking at a round plate with 6 bolts with springs underneath. when you arent pulling the lever, these springs are extended and push the friction disks and metal plates together, thereby locking the inner hub to the outer hub. The inner hub is connected to the crank, and the outer hub is connected to the transmission input gear. So, if pressed together by the springs, your engine running causes your bike to move. Pulling the clutch lever in pulls the spring tension off the plates and allows them to separate. This allows your engine to be disconnected from the transmission. If your plates are locked together you will remove them one by one if you can and lubricate between each plate and disk and reinstalling. Pay close attention to how it came apart. Reinstall bolts and springs reinstall cover, aligning the lever gear teeth with the front of the clutches teeth correctly. put it all together and see if you are okay now.

Can you replace the bearnings in the clutch basket in a ktm 50 pro sr,or do you have to buy a whole basket.

I dont know of any bearings in the basket. The clutch consists of the basket(drum), clutch shoes(3 of) on a centre hub and disc-spring stacks(one stack to each shoe) consisting of disc springs(that look like washers) and a bolt. All of which can be replaced seperately.
To remove undo the centre lock nut.Get the drum assembly off the crank(you'll need a puller for this). Take the shoe assembly out of the drum. Mearure the inner diametre of the drum and the outer diammetre of the shoe assembly. The difference between the 2 measurements should be between 1.50mm an 2.00 mm. If the difference is bigger you can insert a shim between the center hub and shoes up yo a maximum of 1mm shim, then you'll need to replace the shoe. Clean the disc springs and check for wear. Replace if needed.
The quickest way to mess up your clutch is to run on old oil. Change the transmission oil after a maximum of 5 hours riding. It needs about a cup full(250ml) so it is really not expensive considering a set of clutch shoes will set you back $60. Dont neglect this.

Need to remove and install inner primary cover

You really need a manual for this job if you have never done it before. readers digest version is as follows. Drain Primary Fluid, remove outter primary cover, Remove compensating Nut its the one on the front, use a snap ring plyer on the clutch, remove the clutch adjuster nut rod plate . will come out in one piece, Remove the Chutch Hub Nut it turns opposit ( in other words tightening is loosening it) remove bolt on the chain tensioner, whole system will now pull out.
Leave the stator magnet on dont have to remove thats the silver plate up front. Remove the jack shaft bolt on the starter pull it out. Go to other side of bike remove two starter bolts you will need LONG allen..then remove all the bolts on the inner primary and remove it. If you dont understand any of this you need a manual for your bike. or any Harley FL its all the same.
