    And a bunch of other makes (KTM, Ducati etc). Any bike using Brembo brakes.
    crossroadz.com.au lists brake parts and Brembo numbers along with KTM numbers at least. I ordered service kits for my calipers from a local KTM shop to me using the numbers I found on WayneC's site.

    Part No is different to the 650GS & fiche does not state it is 11mm, looking at the fiche pics the difference GS to X seems to be the GS one comes with the actuating rod & the X does not, there will be Brembo Part No info on it & from that it should be able to work out it is the same as the GS plus what repair kits can be purchased from non BMW sources, if anyone gets the info from the MC I can look at the Brembo info I have

    Hi to all,
    I have an xch 08 and a friend is doing the clutch bushing installation for me (great info btw).
    My question is when the clutch case is to be installed, does it need a gasket seal or something or is it just the oring, screws and youre done?
    Thanks in advance.

    Cleaning out my shop and I found a KTM axel nut and 27mm Motion Pro combo tire lever.

    I turned the OD of the nut down so it will fit the rear of the XChallenge.

    Items are on their way to a new home.

    Turned the front nut as well and took the end cap off so I can interchange them and the front axle doesn't hold water when parked.

    I can take the end cap off if needed.

    Hi MotoW,
    Did you use an 09 bmw cover? Also did it come with the bearing and such already installed? Who did you source it from?
    Lotta questions I know but thanks!

    Clutch cover here : https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32893766529.html
    Loncin used to make them for BMW, they may still have some BMW branded ones if you ask. They have the steel insert but do not come with anything else. You need to buy & fit your own wee needle bearings, and re-use the spindle thingy and large 0 -ring. See snooker's website ..

    Posting the link to the Alli Express clutch cover just confuses people.

    Please test alli express's website next time and make sure that the product can be added to the cart before posting it.

    I'm still looking for a shifter lever to replace the stock one.

    I bought a XR650l and a DRZ shifter lever but they both look like they stick out too far.

    Any ideas on an inexpensive solution?

    WR450 shifters fit with no issues. I had a Moose Racing aluminum one.

    Yes you're absolutely right I should have noticed the html file sorry. Turns out they're not available on AliX anymore.

    Any lever off a previous 650 single F or G will fit.
