Forgive the noob question here. Had my 990 adv 3 weeks and not to mechanical but happy to get my hands dirty!

1) Removing the clutch cover is that ok to do? nothing can leak or no gasket needs replacing or whatever?

2) Is replacing the clutch plates a fairly easy job?

Cheers

Mate, I have opened up the clutch in the bush many times and replaced the plates on the side of the road. If you lean the bike on its side no oil will leak.

You must be organised and methodical and be aware the outside plate is different. failure to remember this will chew up your pressure plate.

+1 for the above. Just put the bike on the side stand, NOT the center stand, and remove the clutch cover. There is a TON of info on this site about the 950/990 clutch.

Ive had a similar issue where the lug that screws into the clutch booster (that these bolts screw into) broke off at the booster and as it was ejected sideways by the spring pressure made quiet a mess. Happily I was slowing to a residential zone and was able to shut it down pretty quickly so it was repairable. With the help of a couple of inmates here I was on my way again relatively cheaply and quickly once I had the parts. (KTM Aust had none on hand at that time and the lead was 6-8 weeks).
Wen you compare the baskets of the LC8s with those of the LC4s it amazes me how bullet proof the 4s billet parts are compared to the 8s. Its almost like the good engineer was on a day off and his "accountant fill in" had a go at making it based on cost....
Either way its worth checking these when your doing your oil change. Cheap insurance IMO.

Hello,

My bike make this noise when the clutch lever is pulled halfway in. Found this video with a guy having the same sound.
Was just wondering if it is normal? I have a 990 R 2009

Clutch booster - very normal and okay sound.

Clutch

Australian prices are just a rip off but there are ways around it.

All the ktms are well designed but do require regular maintenance, what makes the difference is this site and ktm talk they really give you the heads up.

110,000km +1

Hi All,


I also had the floating bolt under the clutch cover issue arise today. '06 990. Shop serviced until ~2009 (not particularly happy about the servicing so started doing it myself) and has now done 110,000km. I pulled the clutch plates out about 50,000 ago. Hasn't been touched since. I cleaned very well and loctited everything that should not come undone - I thought..

In my case the bolt that came loose was not the one that screws down on the spring but rather the it was extension below that the spring retainer screws into. The damage was similar to some photes above with broken posts etc. Strainer was blocked (sh*t!) and the spring was mostly ground up. Cover cracked.

Short story: Thanks for starting this thread. I REALLY wish I'd read it earlier!
Long story: Now I've got to figure out a reasonably really cost effect solution to replace basket, plates and cover... ('cause unfortunately I'm also paying for a full rebuild on my Toyota 4x4 gearbox this week!). So much for the bike as a back up vehicle... Might be talking to CJ soon...

Not good to hear you had a failure BUT the manual states
"check clutch linings at every 15000 Kms"

Came across some used clutch parts yesterday = may bey you can save a few bucks on spares here http://www.ebay.com/itm/2006-KTM-950...0da149&vxp=mtr Also looks like that seller has more 950/990 clutch components.

Good luck

Just checked mine!!

Bike was in storage until last Saturday.

Took it for a spin, about 70 kms (or 44 miles) or so... Everything was fine.

Started it yesterday morning to go to work, at there's chatter coming from that side of the bike. Remembered this thread while I was at work, fixing helicopters...!!

Got Home today, took the cover off and everything looked fine... I took all 6 bolts off, put some Lok-tite on them, put them back in and torqued them to spec...

Started it, the chatter was still there!! But after letting it warm up to temp, the chatter went away... Took it for a spin around the block, got snowed on but no chatter.

So I guess I shouldn't be too worried, right??

I'd be worried about the effectiveness of my locktite procedure.

Use the correct formula?

Yes, and when I removed the bolts, all shanks were dry. Not even a drop of oil on them. The heads were covered, but not the shanks... So, I'm not too worried about the locktite...!

Thanks for the response!
