Very good to know

+1, and change O ring (it was discussed on: http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/730...linder-o-ring/ ) .

For enduro riding i'd prefer the PDS. I don't mind it on the track either to be honest. Linkage adds no value for my skill level and feeling.

Does anybody know if the EXC clutch slaves will fit on the 690?

Yes, of course. It's just updated to a more modern color palette:

I was about to say "No. It doesn't"

But.. this is fooking interesting.

Oberon lists part numbers with each bike and they seem to be the same. Seems less expensive than the Sigutech.

The 690 uses the same slave as the RFS bikes, and the same as the Husaberg 70.

I just ordered one from cjdesigns. I wonder why they fail, if they're the same as the EXC slaves. Never had a problem on the 525.

Oh they do indeed fail on the RFS bikes too. I've replaced my o-ring on the 525 once already. I carry spare o-rings and a small bottle of fluid. Just in case.

That's what I was doing with the 690...carrying fluid. It's amazing how fast it disappears when in single track. Hopefully the new slave resolves the issue.

Not sure, but I had an Oberon on my 690. Mine was losing oil, and I just decided to go with an upgraded unit. Butter... So butter...
