2006 Hard Clutch Release

Dec 2, 2015
Have a 2006 KDX that when releasing the clutch in first gear, there is no gradual release of the clutch to start moving forward. As you release the clutch, the bike immediately jumps into action. A lot of your dropping the clutch, spinning out the tires to get going. My 1995 has never had the clutch rebuilt and it has that gradual release into first. Could it be a worn or notched clutch basket?

At a minimum it's worth pulling the side cover and taking a look. The notching will be easy to spot.
