    On second thought it might be a KTM part.
    Good eye. I know both of them are trashed, hadn't been able to find replacements yet. Thanks for the heads up.

    Not to spam but I have a radial clutch and brake pump w/ good levers that I'll let go very reasonably. I'm selling because they get fouled on the Tuoldo fairing and mount I'm using.

    Thanks for the answer on the bolts, Bill. I already had an order with these guys. They came in and I guess they look ok.

    Interesting approach, but I don't think those will still allow a full lock to lock turn without having some contact with the fairing mount's outboard edges.

    Whilst having my water pump rebuilt, I took the time to take out the starter motor and clean up the main terminal.

    Wow! That thing has NEVER started SO fast after some much needed maintenance!!

    Don't forget to lube the oRing on the shafted end.

    Did you disassemble the starter and clean up the insides?

    There was a slight vibration in the clutch lever when engaging and disengaging the clutch. Not when either engaged or disengaged.

    It was the clutch thrust bearing as described here https://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/...-bearing-noise

    It was an easy fix to replace. The vibration is gone now. But I mention.it because there were small metal fragments in and around the bearing and I expect it would lead to more serious problems if ignored.

    So if your clutch vibrates slightly when pulling it in do not wait to find out what it is, just make the quick easy repair and sleep better...
