Thanks! We were looking at the difference between clutch parts in my bike and a 2020 690smrc. There were a lot of parts with different part numbers. I was surprised to see that.It's the 2019 690 smc-r manual. No I cannot, I don't own that PDF. However, that was the first year KTM adopted the Husq 701sm dual balance shaft motor, so it should be the same.
Twas foretold. 800 km in on my 2020 SM the clutch lever started acting dodgy. About 10 seconds later I realised the pickle I was in, managed to drive home like a grandpa and called the garage.I have a 2018 and the OEM slave cylinder failed. I have no idea if the issue has been fixed. People have been replacing them with Rekluse which are far more superior.
Can't speak to sprocket sizing. All my non-cosmetic mods were completed after engine break-in.
Hi Raein,Twas foretold. 800 km in on my 2020 SM the clutch lever started acting dodgy. About 10 seconds later I realised the pickle I was in, managed to drive home like a grandpa and called the garage.
They refused to give any discount on an aftermarket slave cylinder. Husky assistance organised for my bike to be picked up the same day. I was told there is a new, improved part to replace this broken ring. The issue should be fixed with the new part altogether, anyone has any experience with this yet? (Does the 'improved part' still break?)
Thanks a bunch for the slave cylinder fail heads up (to all of you advising on how to recognize and deal with it), that could have been very messy if I didnt know what was happening.
Keep knocking! The only thing that changed is the part number. Go, put an Oberon slave on, before you get killed!Hi Raein,
Yah it's ridiculous that this issue isn't fixed right from the factory. Mine failed while I was in the downtown area of my city. I managed to get it home tho without too much issue. I was told that mine would be fixed with the new and improved part under warranty. Local dealer got it done fairly quickly and I have not had an issue since... I'm knocking on wood here.
