Do 2010 motors suffer the dreaded clutch weep?

I'd venture to say all 1125s will experience it at some point. The Oberon slave is much better than the Buell/EBR counterparts.

Kinda thought that'd be the case. Will get an Oberon. Am getting 2010 motor next week. Heart transplant.

I put that Oberon on my EBR and the clutch pull was tested by a luggage scale to be HALF of stock.

Does the 2010 motor have rotor/stator upgrade? That is going to fail at some point if it is still stock.

Shoggin - Yea I need to put one in my 1190 as well

New motor is totally stock, never been in a bike or fired up, brand new. Will need to use my old stator. I've gone to a series VR on my 1125. I feel that best fix.

I also went to a series VR and put 15W LED headlight bulbs so less power is needed from the stator. No issues.

The Oberon is awesome. customer service is top notch too. I muffed up one of the piston gaskets while fixing a different issue - reached out to Oberon, and they had another in the post that same day, no questions asked.
