Clutch slave cylinder - OBERON vs Evoluzione

Thinking about replacing the crappy clutch slave cylinder that KTM was kind enough to fit on the super E... and have found two options, Evolutione and Oberon.

As far as i know the Evoluzione has proven its quality as bombproof and should be a good if not the best choice.

The Oberon is a new product, proberbly just as good, but i have not heard anything good or bad about it.

So give my your opinions!

Can't say anything about the Oberon as I don't have one. I do have the very first Evoluzione prototype on my bike and I have had no problems with it.

Have been running with the Oberon for about 5 months now, no complaints, and clutch release action definitely much smoother now.

+1 for Oberon.

Brilliant build quality with two o-rings, easy fitment and bleeding, smooth clutch action, much better gearchange than the rebuilt (re o-ringed at 38k km) original. 8k+ km so far & hasn't missed a beat.

Just do it!

Cheers, Dan.

I had the Evo on the 990 and now it lives on the SE.

Flawless. Probably 40000 km all up

Oberon Nice quality. They have been in the slave cylinder business for awhile, and make many types of replacement slaves. One thing their site does say, is that they don't use O-rings, but it is a machined U groove seal. I also like that the piston is also sealed from the rest of the unit, this should cut down on the amount of crud in the system that leaks by on the OEM unit (the piston is non sealed from the rest of the unit.)

+1 Oberon, installed this spring easily with no problems so far, much better clutch feel than stock.

Evoluzione gets props for customer service and expertise. Ken posts on this forum and is most helpful.

I've got the Oberon. Agree with all thats said about smoothness. Definitely inspires confidence with the seal and piston arrangement. One gripe though is the quality of the anodising. Mine is orange and fading after only 2k miles.

I have the Orange Evo and have no complaints. It also looks cool on my 950.
