Suzuki unit on ebay. I think I paid about 40 for mine from the local shop...but they give me a little bit of a break.

Both my clutch and brake MC's have leaked from the covers from day one. I have other Brembo bits on another bike with no issue.

I've removed, cleaned, resealed and still leaking!

Normally this wouldn't bother me and I would run her till she doesn't work. However, I am in Uzbek right now and headed deeper into asia. The last good KTM dealer was in Istanbul. Does one rebuild or order a whole replacement?

They are the same unit. Just other places to look for it. KTM twins didn't used to offer the switch.

I recall some posts in the 950/990 threads about replacing the switch with one from a BMW car. It was a readily available unit off the shelf. Might even be the one KTM Twins is selling. (probably cheaper)

Thanks! That thread had the info I was talking about.

I see this is a 2 pin blade style. Ahhh, that's the difference.

If the wall thickness is not sufficient you can also go down to a 9mm piston, bit more travel but easier clutch pull.
Thanks for the replies guys. I'll look into it when I get to Bishkek in a few days.

Lowers the temperature at which the fan kicks in.

It starts the cooling fan at 88C/190.4F instead of the stock 105C/221F.
