Re: Replacement Clutch Master Cylinder (Magura)

Got a photo? Should look sweet :)

Re: Replacement Clutch Master Cylinder (Magura)

Fair call, surprised that the pull is stiffer. I would have thought it may have been even better. The 167 10.5 is much improved and the clutch action is very much reduced in regards to effort. Also very happy with the feel.

Re: Fuel filters for KTM 990 injection - real price, not KTM price

No first time.

With the need to replace every 20,000k's (in my case) they are stupidly expensive. I left it too late both other times and couldn't wait, hence I got two this time ;) I'm thinking that I'll just replace them every major service instead of having a bike that will not go.

Re: what is acceptable engine/clutch noise

Mine is quite noisy and I have always found that I can tell when the oil is getting low because of the increase in noise during start up. My mates 990 Adventure is the same. They are loose and they spin up fast! These engines are not like a Honda or a BMW 4! Just check your oil levels and ride it ;)

Re: Replacement Clutch Master Cylinder (Magura)

Hi Kirishma Yes me too! the replacement seals only lasted a few months, at $70 a go (self installed) I didn't want to keep doing that! The 167 10.5mm version is the upgraded model, so I'm assuming that they have improved the quality as well as the design. It is the same as what KTM has selected for ...

Re: Pingel Inline Fuel Filter

If you are thinking about replacing your filters in the tank with this one be careful. The filters in the tank go down to 5 micron and are very good at doing what they do. I have not found a inline filter that will go down to 5 micron.... I note they don't state how fine this unit is :idea:

Re: Replacement clutch master cylinder and lever

You may be able to order a part for the clutch bracket that you have which will allow the mirror to mount. This is what Magura does.
