    From what I can see the issue is that subframe is moving and loctite isn't enough to keep it in. You either have to use red loctite or we used gasket maker and glued head of the bolt.. it held up on M41 so it should work for less hostile environments.

    Also the top subframe mount bolt was loose put blue loctite next time you have access to it.

    262 is the red Loctitite which is what I used. I'll have a look at the top bolt.

    The neutral switch or wiring failed; anyone had similar issue?

    Do you count husky? all of them was my fault,leaving wire where it shouldnt be. Exept maybe first,when wire snapped just after sensor,leaving just enough to solder new one. Now it has snapped maybe three times,always near clutch slave, Wrong routing is culprit in mine.

    No.
    I did check the top subframe bolt and got about half a turn from the nut to what I'd consider the correct tension. Its a tight fit with the tank on but a ratchet spanner worked fine.

    So neutral switch is working again; the difference? I took ECU off to paint shock mount. Let's call it bad contact.

    Just wanted to point out that some reading my posts may come to conclusion that Superdual isn't reliable and better be avoided. On contrary the places I have taken it to are manifest of how reliable bike is. Many bikes fall into pieces on these tracks; be they made in Germany, Japan or Austria.

    So I'm looking at the way to fix cold clutch chatter (guessing wrong oil or slightly burnt friction plates due to T high gearing and riding slow) and Barnett comes with the same part #s as used in SV/V-Strom:
    http://www.barnettclutches.com/husqvarna.html

    Friction plates: 301-35-10012 (8)
    Steel plates: 401-37-063090 (7)
    Spring set: 501-45-06087

    Anyone had looked into this?

    OEM part # 8000A9764, same as TE-630/610/510

    Sorry I cant help. I'd assume with different P/N's they would be different.
    Maybe if you contact Barnett direct they may know.
    I've had no issue with the standard clutch.

    the internet rumour was swm changed the springs on the sd vs the husky and claim that " fixed" the clutch washer issue. I'm willing to bet you've proven them wrong......perhaps it's time to pull the cover off and let us know if we need to be sourcing the south african washers?

    I'm not sure at this point so just eliminating possibilities. Bled clutch; next would be to change oil and check/sand plates. The chatter only happens on engaging 1st after start in neutral and only after backing bike back. I suspect oil (Shell Ultra), glassed plates.. sticking pushrod and notched basket is also a possibility..

    We are going to ride to Mungishlak next spring and it's alot of sand and fesh fesh so it wouldn't be a bad idea to get a backup.

    isn't this normal? My rs has done it from new - only the first engagement and only if I've backed it out of the shed. I just assumed it's all those springs / plates et al waking up and wondering why they're being asked to work so early in the morning? It's an Italian thing :dunno

    What kind of "all these" things???
    Imo bike is good especially for this price. A stand spring is nothing to replace or fix.

    All my concern about his trip is ISIS in Tajikistan. Next to Afghan border, east part.
    IIRC you used jonson baby oil for clutch, or smthng like that... maybe time to chance it

    look at post 2023 as an example - frames breaking are reasonably worrying

    Did you see the load the frame had to bear during the trip? I ask cyclopatic to put a picture about it. the swm designs "light" bikes, not tanks
