Hey guys, I was at the track this weekend and i was having some problems with my clutch. Whenever i would kick it into gear from neutral, my bike would die unless i increased the RPM and then kicked it into gear, and it also rolls when its in gear with the clutch all the way in. I played with the adjuster on the bars, but to no avail. So what is the problem and how do i fix it? Thanks guys.

Try adjusting your clutch cable down by the motor. If that dont help check your clutch plates and see if there burnt up.

Sounds like the same thing that happened to my stepson's KX100. After sitting in the garage all winter long, oil drains out of the plates and can cause them to stick together. Try working the clutch while riding it, pop it in and out.
