Clutch Matercylinder 10.5 vs 9.5

Everything I read online, says that for a 2007 SE it has a 10.5 piston rebuild kit. However I took my clutch master off today and on the bottom it says 9.5.

This may be a stupid question, but are they compatible?

My clutch master was converted to rear brake and I'm in the process of putting it back to stock. Shitty thing is I ordered a 10.5 kit and it will arrive tomorrow.

Now that is interesting!

How do you fullas keep ya radiators clean?

We get lots of fine grit/muck in the lower part where the square grid part is on the protector.

Trying to keep this clean for cooling in 35 deg plus heat so some ideas from those who have had success would be great.

I will add we are on the road so something that we can possibly do without a huge workshop etc.

Cheers all

You can remove the front grid by removing the two fasteners. Then a liberal spray into the rad usually does it for mine it takes a while to remove the cooked on stuff that likes to collect at the back side of the rad. These bikes run hot unfortunately.

Ye they do run hot, seems like another .5 litre capacity in the rad would do wonders.

The guys in AZ must have their fans on almsot full time, we will look and a mesh screen in front of the guard I think as we don't have access to a hose a lot of the time.

Low front fender works a treat... But seeing as you are on the road try rigging something that extends the front guard lower at the back to stop the crud coming up into the rad from the wheel, like a fender extender for adventures. . For cleaning I put a hose engine side of rad and wash back through with low pressure to not mess up the fins.


Good luck!

Acrapovic Cans

Hi,

I really like the look of shorter cans when you also have a tail tidy. I think the acra cans is to long. Anybode that has openened/shortened their acra cans? Easy fix? Any pics? Thanks

Can a 950 SMR be somewhat easily turned into an SE?

I ask cuz you can find them under $6k and SE's are usually $10k.

Those posts above aren't the ones I was looking for. The consensus was that you could buy the cheaper SMR and upgrade it but you'd be in it enough to have just bought an SE anyway by the time you were done. A couple did it though and one ADVrider posted a thread on what changes he made I can't find it though.

EDIT: Here's one: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=653029

Also if you look hard you'll find SE's for around $6000-$7000 or at least you could last year. They come in waves, none for sale for months and then there will be 5 or 6 at once.

Good luck.
