[email protected], To note. KTM's use Mineral oil for the clutch system not DOT 3-4 fluid. Not sure if the seals are compatible with the DOT fluids. Could be a disaster waiting to happen. As most know DOT 3-4 and 5.1 fluids will damage painted surfaces. Both my KTM's used mineral oil for the clutches and DOT 5.1 for the brakes. Not sure if the newer bikes use DOT clutch fluid but doubt it. A bit frustrating that Brembo does not supply rebuild kits for many of their M/C's or caliper/slave cylinders. If you search out a VERY knowlegable Brembo dealer they may be able to substitute a kit for another bike with the same M/C bore size. I have a 11 Multi and don't have clutch trapped air issues. I do however bleed all my clutch and brake systems with a very high vacuum bleeder system.Did a bunch of searching just now. Mostly just confirmed that a large number of folks are/were having the same issues with clutch going after 300-400 miles. Some had their MC's replaced under warranty.
I typically have to bleed mine every weekend during the summer riding months. No way that much air is getting trapped, it has to be getting introduced.
I couldn't find any threads on KTM parts. I know I came across one somewhere that identified the MC dust seal that was compatible with the MTS. Same part but about half the price from the KTM dealer, versus Ducati.
But... if Brembo isn't releasing rebuild kits anymore I don't know if it would be any easier to find one for KTM.
Anyone know of a parts cross-reference list for KTM and Ducati?
