EVO no longer?

I have the stock clutch slave cylinder fail, went to order an EVO from Black Dog Cycle and they said they sold the last one the day before. They also said EVO will not produce them any more as the company is going under. Had to order an Oberon, I needed one now.

Evo

Did the economy get these guys? I have one on one of my 950's. Will parts be available?

I believe the only parts you may need are orings.

From what I hear it was a divorce that caused the closing

My leaking Evo is dismantled now and will later become my new spare clutch slave. Its a little messy to measure the oring dimensions since they are soft. Anybody with accurate info on the oring dimensions?

You can measure the diameter at the groove the oring sits in.

This will be the ID of your oring. You can also measure the width of the groove. This will be the thickness of your oring replacement.
Cheers.

This is not true. the groove width will be ~30% larger than the oring cross section diameter.

Correct. They - the O rings - are designed to compress.

If you wanna get technical, try this comprehensive o-ring design guide from Parker

http://www.parker.com/literature/ORD...g_Handbook.pdf

Section 4 deals with static seals. Anyone should be able to back into the correct o-ring size, given the groove dimensions.

What solutions are available in early 2013?

Never mind....found that Evo is out of business, but Oberon is clicking away. I just ordered the new slave and base at Dual Sport Motorcycle.

Thanks for the order Big John. Oberon is doing well and we keep their KTM slave cylinders in stock at Dual Sport Warehouse. We've been using the LC8 version on our bikes for several years and have had very good results. Oberon just released the new version for the LC4 motors (and it fits most of the smaller bikes as well) and I recently installed it on my 690 Enduro R and will be testing it out on that bike. So far all is good but the riding season is struggling to escape the grip of winter around here.

We have finally found some warm weather in CO and are eager to ride. Headed to tackle the Kokopelli and Moab this weekend. Will be ripping the XR650R out in the desert and rocks.

But can't wait to get home and finish the work on the 950AS for the new ride season.

Hope this mod fixes my crapping clutch.
