Clutch master leaking

Hey all.

My clutch master is leaking quite a bit... to the point where there is oil on my hand guards. It doesn't seem to have an effect on the action yet.

Normally this wouldn't bother me and I would run her till she doesn't work. However, I am in Uzbek right now and headed deeper into asia. The last good KTM dealer was in Istanbul. Does one rebuild or order a whole replacement?

I am guessing you are using the silver cased ICO?
Yes, the VR Light. Appreciate it, thanks. I thought that there was not enough material to really drill into the inner ring. Did you screw the sensor into the hole or did you use the tab provided by ICO?

tune ecu wings pipe running lean

Just installed akra map and wings pipe. Bike runs good but spark plug is now greyish-white (LEAN). Anyone have this exhaust ? If so what did you change in tune ecu? So far I've just been increased fuelling across the board in both F and L maps by 4%, and plug is pretty much the same colour.

Cheers!

Yo Noah!

Depends if it's just the seal or if the bore is worn out... In the latter case instead of replacing it, I would try to find a good machine shop that can sleeve it with a stainless sleeve, this would last much longer than the aluminum bore.

If the wall thickness is not sufficient you can also go down to a 9mm piston, bit more travel but easier clutch pull.

I bought the Kawasaki part number as it was cheaper. $35.06 plus tax. I ordered the o-ring for it as well, but it was not needed as the new switch had the o-ring on it.

Those look pretty sweet and have a tread that should be a little less noisy on the road. Let me know what you think after you put them through the ringer. Always looking for a good 50/50 dual sport tire.

27010-S023 Switch, Fan.

2006 KFX-400. As well as the Suzuki LTZ-400, it is also the Arctic Cat DVX-400. This was not a stocked part at my dealer, so you might want to call ahead.
