If the engine still turns, you will most likely need to get the transmission (Cases) split open. First check to see if the shifter lever moves up and down, and if not, this may be a good place to look into. If not, a bent shift fork, notched shift drum, or bad gear could be the issue.

Have a 2006 ktm 250 sxf seized rod to the crank got it changed reinstalled put motor back together now can not even kick it like somthing is stuck. Toke the clutch basket out, timing gear and water pump...

Your clutch basket is the link between the engine and transmission. Your kick starter rotates the clutch basket gear, which turns another gear at the engine crank. Remove either the basket or gear at the crank and see if the engine, and the transmission both turn. Sounds like the engine is stuck for some reason. At least you can cut the issue in half.

My 2001 KTM 250sx is stuck in gear, the shifter moves up and down but does not change the gears. I removed the clutch everything is pefect, gonna pull the basket. Any ideas? I have seen other saying bent...

It sounds like the end of the shifting shaft has broke loose, it is a welded joint, If you can grab the shifter with your hand and feel that thing slip in there, up and down,that might be the problem, but splitting that case, ugh, total rebuild.Too bad you can't get to it through the clutch. Hope this helps.moz-screenshot-1.png

KTM does not provide a spec for this. If you think you are low on compression, you will need to perform a leak down test on the motor to determine if work is needed.

From what I've heard and read it is a great bike with the exception of poor spring rates from the factory. Almost every one seems to agree that it needs stiffer springs.,,
