My '08 Adv S also had a weeping problem and I had it replaced with an aftermarket Magura unit for +/- $60 plus a lot for the oil.

It works fine.
Got a part number or any other identifying information

Thanks Chuck.

I just had to determine Other Options on this important device other than a choice of Just 1 item that seems to me, has some sketchy quality issues.

It took less fabrication than I had anticipated and well pleased with the results. Helpful to be able to See and anticipate the Fluid Level so I won't get caught off guard again.... especially while you are taking trips in those remote areas.

Hope this post is able to help others with some Viable Options should they come to this fork in the road.

Is there a moderator in the house? Do you agree this should be added to the Orange Crush Thread Index at the top of the page?

Yes it works....rode 1/2 a day with it yesterday.

Note: I think the Stock Magura is a 9.5 or 10mm Cylinder, this unit is a 16mm Cylinder (notice Diameter Sizes in the Side by Side Pic) and takes less travel to get the job done.

The Reservoir (20 CC Unit Shown) , does not come with the unit,
but sold in a Universal Kit with different sizes. I purchased this one in a rush and probably could have found a Smaller Size...but it works fine. Pending what Master you get, they have the Reservoir Kit options usually on the same page.

Hope this helps.

Elias,

The Old Clutch Master Cover/ w/Choke Trigger Mechanism (Chock Plate), I kept in place by putting 2 Screws w/Nuts/Washers in the Existing Holes and Ran a Wire under the New Master from Screw to Screw w/BlueLoctite (See the Choke Plate Bottom View Picture on Previous Page). This holds it in place and used Some Velcro Underneath the platch to assist holding it in place.

Hardly ever use the Choke anyways...but it is there when the need arises.

Here is the Lever/Plunger Side of the OEM Clutch Master Cylinder View:




The Cotton Swap from inside cylinder shows remnants of aluminum wear.

Below it, is the 9 month old Plunger/Spring from the Rebuild Kit.

Update this process. SOLDERED the Yellow & Brown Wire together so one can Start the Bike in GEAR.

After a few thousand miles... still working like a champ.

Well so that you don't feel alone, I have changed two MCs so far and I'm a little shy of 22k miles. My bike is a 2009, and sees a lot of heavy traffic (hence many slipping clutch cycles). Now, I'm currently in Belgium, far from home (Greece) and I noticed oil "mist" on the lever joint which tells me that this one's about to go bad too. Since I'll be passing from Austria, I'll make sure that I get a new one under warranty (last month of it actually) and give em a nice shake about this specific yet very easy to address problem. Since I reach the KTM factory I'll be shifting clutch-less as much as possible. On the bright side, my very trusty mechanic in Greece told me that the Superduke MC is much better (and more expensive) and will solve the problem (he said permanently)...We'll see.... BTW I'd be happy to ask anything you guys want while visiting the sacred KTM sanctum...Cheers..

Devian,
Good Luck with your trip.

The Adventure 950 OEM is a Magura is a 8, 9.5, or 10mm Cylinder, where my upgrade brings it to a 16mm with much less travel and better build...IMHO.

I think the SuperDuke OEM is Brembo 16mm Radial or an upgrade:

This is why I went with the Accossato Radial 16 RCS which is basically the same thing here in the States:

'10 R here and I think my master is weeping/misting around the reservoir cap, which is retained with two screws. Currently keeping an eye on it. It doesn't show liquid, but it doesn't seem to collect any dust around the cap/looks abnormally clean.
