Anyway, perhaps I'm approaching this from the wrong angle. Maybe I don't need case protection as much as I need a lever that doesn't bend as much. How likely would it be the a billet lever like the CleanSpeed would bend far enough to hit the case?

Turns out I didn't escape totally free. Hours later you can just see the glisten of oil on your finger if you wipe the gouge the brake pad made. Pretty lucky though.

Still a great day!

Just buy them directly from Advspec. I ordered a skid plate and the case protectors from them. Shipping was reasonable, arrived via DHL, and arrive at my door on the friday of the same week I ordered it. I ordered something else from California on the same day and it arrived after the parts from the UK.

Anybody interested in buying a couple of sets or such for a group buy? Freaking shipping is half again as much as the plates cost.
I bet the shipping does change much at all wtih multiple sets.

I just posted up on my local board (my2wheels) hoping to get enough in a group purchase that either ASV throws in shipping or it end up being only about $5 each. You are pretty close and could easily get into that group.

And, all it took to make it look good as new was putting a small screw driver into the toe pad and twisting it back.... I suppose there is good and bad to that.

It has a very very tiny weep of oil when the bike is level. Any issues with using JB Quick, or Weld to repair this?

I should've mentioned that I've lowered my brake pedal enough so that the adv spec case saver might not stop it. There's a good chance that it will. It's the cleanspeed lever, so I'm not too concerned.

Likewise for the shifter, although it's kinda beefier than the stock brake pedal.

Check out the pics.
Please don't hate me. It's still nice to have them on.

Unfortunately the stock wiring harness on these bikes is good for a finite amount of time. KTM went with really small gage wiring and they decided to put a lot of tight bends in the loom. Combine this with vibration, shock, wet, dry, warm, cold, dust, and mud and the insulation in those tight bends will suffer and split. I have fixed a bunch of wires on my bike before they failed or caused issues but the end goal is to rewire the bike....following in Crankchafts newly blazed trail.

I plan to rewire the bike so I can utilize this speed which was used on the 950's and 640 adventures. It is very clear and easy to read and they hold up for a long time. I have no need for the tach and never liked the stock 08 cluster.
