KTM Frank - There was a clutch rod update in early 2005 that applied to all the earlier models. I had it done and the clutch was better for the next 20000 miles or so. I use a synthetic blend oil.

At about 29000 miles my clutch suddenly got really grabby. It does not function properly until the motor oil gets hot. It started when the weather turned cold in late November and is much worse then before. I have to be very careful launching the bike because it will grab so hard. I am thinking the oil jet is clogged and the clutch is probably farely worn too. As soon the snow breaks, I'll probably replace the clutch.
