Question about kawasaki Ninja 250R Motorcycles
It sounds like a problem with a hydraulic clutch system. Air in the lines would cause the clutch to not fully engage and cause a judder or jolt making it harder to put into and out of gear.Try bleeding the hydraulic clutch system first. If you need to , put new seals in the system . If the clutch plates are stuck together that would also cause the jolting . You may have to take the clutch apart , separate the plates , inspect it , replace the bad parts if any, and coat the plates with oil when you reassemble. Some of the problems may be oil related. Be sure to use an oil with the JASO MA motorcycle certification. 10w-40 for cold climate, 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label. It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oil will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. A 20w-50 synthetic would definitely help overcome some of the symptoms you describe. Be sure the clutch cable or hydraulic clutch system is working correctly. If it is a cable system make sure the cable is not binding and is fully engaging the clutch.
