I love the ktm shifter design.  instead of replacing a wappered out lever every year, I can go many years on the same lever.  Red loc tight on the bolt and some silicone on the splines keeps the shifter from loosening.
I thijk the same.  I replaced the stocker because the tip was worn. But this Hammerhead one kept coming loose.

I did blue on mine but I will try red. I've also heard a longer bolt helps too.

I like the Silicon on the threads and will do that.

Tack weld it to the shaft

im guessing your clutch wear comes from a big guy on a little bike, could also be your pressure plate is worn. i went through clutches like crazy on my 125 until brenden realized my pressure plate was worn pretty thin.

Yeah I'd run the heavier springs and an extra pressure plate. Can't feel the springs with the hydro clutch anyway

You guys mean a 200 isn't meant for a 235 lb rider?  Lol color me shocked.

The last time I changed the clutch I used the old Springs. I did this because they were stock. every time I ran Aftermarket ones on other bikes they were stiff and I hated the clutch pull.

This time I changed the springs too and as Chris pointed out there's zero difference anyway due to the baby oil clutch.
