Re: Stock Exhaust For Sale

Do cops in your state have random safety inspections like they do in Australia ? (ie: cops check for illegal mods etc). If so, it might be worth keeping so you can get bike regoed again.

Re: SMT Perishing clutch line - Aftermarket replacements ?

Thanks LH. I haven't bothered using US OEM suppliers since they all refused to sell items to AU in 2010. Has this collusion been lifted ?. I noticed my UK supplier is approximately the same price as locally.

SMT Perishing clutch line - Aftermarket replacements ?

Looks like my clutch line is starting to perish. The OEM is in the order of $160AUD (600 32 063 100). Has anyone brought an after market clutch line ?. Do have a link ? I've found this "one size fits all" part: http://www.venhill.co.uk/k02-3-036-p.html, but the page has no info regarding line length...

Re: Splitting the cases !

I've got doubts it was any of the technical staff, but believe it was somebody with access to their workshop after hours. Doesn't matter anyway. This Stealership has a long history of doing dodgey shit and turning it around to be my fault. It was the last straw. So, I didn't waste my time engaging t...

Re: Splitting the cases !

hope the rebuild was/is successful. I wonder if the rear cyl on your motor might have an oil feed/pressure/heat issue? Yep, rebuild a success, I did 3500km in two months last spring. The faulty buckets were caused by some c**t at the local KTM dealer using my bike as a parts bin in 2015 when it sat...

Re: Splitting the cases !

Hi Dave Up until mid last year, I religiously used Cross Power 10W50 every 3500km or every 6 month, what ever was closest. The reason for this is during summer, bike has long periods of not being used and it gets pretty humid and hot this time of the year "Adelaide - the heat wave capital !". When I...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

A replaced the gear a few weeks ago. No fault found and didn't expect to find one as explained previously. I put a blurp on superduke forum. (sorry, I thought this site was down for good. Glad to see its back :D).

Re: Aftermarket front brake - Brembo 19 RCS

FYI. The Australian Brembo importer finally replied (after a month and bit). They said they are able to get the OEM part from Brembo in Italy for $379AUD. If you prefer the exact OEM replacement, then this is the avenue (at a significantly cheaper cost and waiting time). Ordering details: P/N: 10821...

Re: Gear lever removal

Happy Solstice everybody :). Some $10AUD battery pullers from Supercheap Auto Parts worked a treat. 1.jpg 2.jpg It turns out that the Loctite I used on the bolt when I adjusted it 5 years ago seeped into the shaft connection, and hence made the lever a c*** to remove. This time I used grease and wil...

Aftermarket front brake - Brembo 19 RCS

Hi All, My original front brake was feeling a bit manky, like the seals in the master cylinder were expanding ?. Most riders would not notice or care, but I have a thing about front brakes. So, I broke down and brought a Brembo 19 RCS kit :D https://www.jwmotoparts.com.au/store/p674/Brembo_19_RCS_br...

Such a crap design replacing buckets every 50000 miles :(. I suppose that is why the design never got carried to the LC8 V2 ?

Re: How to rebuild clutch Master cylinder

Just serviced/revamped clutch system. New Oberon slave, and new 163 piston + seal kit. Fitting nylon washer and circlip in master cyl I found to be a very difficult job. I ended up removing master cylinder so that barrel was facing upward.

Re: Exhaust Heat Shields

Yeah, I got mine black powder coated to hide the after market cans (cops, defects etc). I didn't replace the insulation. Didn't need to. The straight thru cans don't get that hot.

Re: Fuel reserve light issues

From my photos of servicing my pump twice, this is the closest pic of the sensor.

The sensor has very delayed reaction. It takes some time for it to react. So, keep that in mind.

Re: Anyone knows of an aftermarket fuel cap?

Thanks crapchicken (if you're still around ?). As per your advice, I got the Rally Products fuel cap assembly.

The postage turned into a bit of a cluster f***, but that's another story. In the end, I got the product and it's fitted, so happy. No more smelling like a WWI aviator :lol:

Re: Pulsating front brake/on off throttle

Hi Rakamora I first would be checking for seized front brake caliper pistons. What's the pad wear like ? Fitting a straight thru can and remapping makes a big difference. Removing the emission features and following Kevxtx's mod #10 or mod #20 configurations makes the bike run how it's supposed to. ...
