Yep, Oberon.
If it's more expensive, it's because it is an entire assembly, like a pre-assembled kit. It's very nice.

Yes. Erik Buell Racing has an improved kit. They may have some left over that they are selling off. I suggest you call and ask.

But I doubt that is causing the clutch to slip; leaking piston would make it difficult to shift, especially downshift at speed and 1st gear at a stop.

All the kits mentioned above will do the trick, I got the x2086.1am kit on my 08 and the EBR kit on 09. Since you are in Canada, the Oberon kit is likely easier to source than the EBR or Buell kits.

like Joe7 sez...the leaking slave cylinder won't make it slip...
Barnett makes a kit for the 1125
a) don't use the springs included in the kit...they are very stiff...just replace the "stock" springs
b) soak the plates overnight before you install
c) pay attention to the order of the steel plates...I believe the first one to go in (or last one to come out) is different from the other plates (which are all alike)
