Does anybody know where I can get one from, and what they're called ? I've done an ebay search on them and can't find anything.

As you know, the problem on the ST's is that they're mounted upside down and tend to fill with water.
If they're silly money I'll just drill some holes in the OEM item.

This is the kind of thing I mean, with lots of cutaways.

There was a thread on here a while back about anodized billet handles. They were expensive, though, and that cost inspired me to drill holes in mine to let the water out. :eek:

Thanks Michael.
I did find that thread yesterday, but couldn't find the knobs on the Kyle Racing site.

What I did discover is that the Ohlins for the Diavel come with that knob on them.

I'll probably keep the bucks in my pocket and drill the OEM item.

Mark - Take a drill-bit the same size as the slots that run along the knob and drill out where they end then take a little bit of white paint and run it along one of them facing outwards with the adjuster set at zero turns.

Makes adjusting the setting much easier and the holes mean no more water (dont forget a little bit of copper-slip on the screw thread when refitting.

Job Done !

Thanks for the tips Allan.

I just hope mine isn't seized in and snaps when I try to undo it :eek:
