Unfortunately, I jacked up my seal fooling around with it. But, a new seal should be here tomorrow with a new O-ring. KTMtwins had them both. Couldn't find either locally or in Denver.

But thanks for the clue. I'll remember that for next time.

Nope, sorry... I've been having some health issues, and "regular work" keeps getting in the way of "fun work". I did order the material some time in December, however. You have no idea how heavy a 18" length of 3" round bar aluminum bronze is... until you drop it on your foot.

In all honesty, I doubt I'll be able to find time to do anything other than make a prototype, if that, before I go in for surgery early next month.

Sorry for the delay.

Remember that that bolt has a reversed thread....you may want a new bolt and washer for the install....

There are three different brake pedal models. I'm not sure all three models are left handed. I just don't remember ... But I think the 2011 is right handed ...

You are correct. I just nuked my post after I looked up the parts breakdown for the 2011 brake lever. It was upgraded from the previous models to roller bearings instead of a bushing. That would make left handed threads in that application less necessary. http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....=13&A=525&B=21

In the parts manual for the 08 the screw is identified as a LH threaded one. Hopefully the parts manual for his bike will make it clear. Oh, and another vote for the cleanspeed lever. That's one tough bugger.

Oil Tests

Since someone was talking about it, here're links to the two tests Sobiloff did on his 690 (break-in oil and the motorex 10w-60.)

Break-In oil
Motorex


Cheers, Jeff

I own the 2010 model and one of the first things I did was replace the stock lever with the Clean Speed. Nice bit of engineering.

Someone mentioned Hammerhead but it was shot down. Said it wore a hole in his big toe!
All said, it seems that some like it and some don't....just like everything.

It seems to come down to selecting the correct lenght for your foot--they come in several sizes--something the OP on that one mentioned If memory serves. I don't remember anyone else having any issues with it. It looks pretty at least--lol.

Still out with a broken shoulder (separated glenoid fracture). Don't know if I will be able to ride in the future, but I haven't sold my bikes yet.
I see that top speed have borrowed your image while looking a bit silly (having a picture of a 08/09 with fancy graphics and assuming it is a 2012)
