Now it's stranded my twice (makes a noise like an impact wrench), but still starts the bike most of the time.

Has anyone gotten KTM to replace the torque limiter out of warranty? My local dealer is less than helpful, and I'm concerned they still won't approve a replacement since it doesn't clack every single time. All I want are the parts, I'll gladly replace it myself. Should I contact KTM directly? Any advice?

If you can't get the parts (fast enough or at all) others have welded the stock one (makes it like an 04), or use the washer fix for temporary or longer.
