You can get Brake and Shifter Snakes from Motion Pro, or just log on and look at them...easy to fabricate from the pic...not that I'd do anything like that.

I also use a "brake snake" similar to this:http://www.flickr.com/photos/24373111@N08/2770001380/ that runs down through the shifter's pivot (the hammerhead pivot pin has a hole running vertically through it) and then forward to the skidplate to help keep it from getting bent.
Thanks, I was thinking of giving the Hammerhead shifter a try.Do you think it's more robust then the stock one?

I do have a brake snake (on the rear brake ), but don't have one on the shifter. I'm thinking it won't do me any good because my problem is that the gear shifter is always bending in towards the engine .

Chris D: The hammerhead shifter is definately more "robust" than oem. They are nearly the same price as oem too, so if you need a new shifter anyway, definately go with the hammerhead. If/when you F one up, you can then just buy the individual pieces to fix it instead of dropping $70+ each time. I could go measure the difference in thickness with my calipers if you'd like. You should consider an set of clutch/ignition cover gaurds to keep the brake/shifter from busting through in a crash, I have these: http://www.adventure-spec.com/defaul...m-690-e-r.html

Bike Nomad: I've made my own brakesnakes before but the ones currently on the bike are motion pro (3 pack for $6 http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/pr...FamilyId=25547 ), it is nothing more than a small length of cable with a ferrel crimped on which can be done with a pair of pliers. The parts are available at most hardware stores and shouldn't cost more than $2-$3, hell, you could probably buy a 50 pack for that much.

Group buy done awhile back. Sounds like everybody is happy with them.
So you are saying that there is no option to fix the seals on the current slave?
It is a 120euro replacment part, instead of a couple of seals? I think I am going to ask my local to see if the pistons seal/gasket etc can be repaired.

Nope, just suggesting that alot of guys with the same issue opted to go with the Sigutech as a replacement and have been very pleased with the performance.

You can easily replace the seals, but many chose to upgrade.

Ride on!

I had the replacement part number up here for a Yamaha O-ring which fit the slave and was around $1.50. Now that the megathread is gone, so is it.

I will have to go home to look the number up and can do so later tonight.

This part only fixes slaves from '08 and '09 bikes. In '10 they started using a different (green) wiper seal in place of the o-ring.

Shit! You are right. I'm sorry for false hopes. I forgot about that part.

Well, at least with the '08 and '09 bikes the stock fix is easier. If I had a newer bike, and didn't want to buy a Sigutech unit. I might almost entertain the idea of changing to an older slave for availability and cost of parts.

You are getting pretty good at that. Thanks for the help.

(You might want to tone it down a little though, next thing you know you will the the "Librarian" and everyone will be sending you PM's for Megathread lookups.)

In-line filter

I see that the 2012 250 and 350 SX-F models have an in-line serviceable fuel filter. Has any-one seen this? Small enough to use in the place of the quick dis-connects? Part numbers?

Just to double check it's the Hammerhead KTM #1 that will fit our bikes? The reason I ask is that the OEM part # doesn't match what they say it will replace. Thanks!!

I'd look elsewhere for an inline filter. A few guys at thumpertalk have had issues with the sx-f filter plugging up already.
