Hi newbie here, im looking for a little help my son has a KTM 50 and end of last year it locked up cut out, went to re kick and kickstart jammed but back wheel moved freely, anyhow i put it away for the winter and have just pulled it out to get it running for him and as i went to drain the oil i got what looked like strawberry yogurt coming out, the tranny fluid is red so that explains the colour but doesnt explain why its the consistency is that of yogurt it took over an hour to drain. I did have issues when i bought it with water pump so rebuilt it with new seal bearing and impeller shaft so im doubting that as the problem, does anyone have any ideas? all help greatly appreciated.

Sure sounds like the water pump needs another rebuild.

Kick starters on the 50s are junk. The heavy spring from nihilo helps a bit. The kicker itself does wear out quickly though. Need to know the year of the bike to help with your oil issue

Water pump seal in backwards?
Water pump shaft worn or groved?
Did you replace the bearing ?
