Hey all, just wanted to share my experience with the oberon clutch slave cylinder I installed in my RX. Like some, I felt the clutch pull was quite excessive compared to say my 1125's or any other hydraulic clutch for that matter. Didn't really notice it riding around and having fun in the mountains but, in the city and in traffic, it was a bear(to me any way). I have an early '14 build date, not sure if the '15 or '16's have this issue. Didn't want to put the EBR kit in because I had heard of peoples clutches slipping at high loads because of the lighter springs. Did some reading around and found people were using the oberon slave cylinder with success on 1125's(I never had an issue with my 1125's clutch pull). Read that the 1125 part number will work on the 1190 and their website backs this up. Installed it and it is night and day difference. Feels like the pull on my buddy's KTM dirtbike now. Very little resistance. Very happy with my decision to go with the oberon slave cylinder. A lil expensive but any one who commutes or has to ride in the city will much appreciate the results.

Yea, way expensive for what you get.
Just build up the ol forearm/finger muscles a little. I drive my RX daily (84.3 miles a day), with no problem.
15,093 miles at 14 months (minus 3 months for a broken collar bone to heal!)
