Exclamation New Sprag Clutch

Hi Guys, I'm having a new sprag clutch installed on my 2013 800 Brutale. Has anybody had any issues with the updated sprags after installation. I know some people have have 3 of the earlier ones replaced

I just had my 5th installed last month (on a 2015 Dragster).

Regardless of the 'updated' parts and regardless of battery, they seem to last about 3000 miles apiece.

Man that's gotta drive you nuts, I'm at just over 11,000km and not a single issue with the sprag on my Dragster. I think I'd be tearing my hair out by 5 my local dealer is slow at everything, 5 sprags would take over half the time I've owned the bike for them to even think about sorting.
Hope this one lasts longer for you.

Haha yeah, it's pretty maddening. I'm at 16000 miles (so ~26000 km). The dealer has actually been super responsive and pleasant to work with, but between the sprags, the radiator imploding, the quickshifter ceasing to quickshift, the taillight deciding to not work anymore . . . it has been a not entirely ideal experience.

Sprag Clutch

Hi Guys Thanks for the update. My bike is just over 3000km. Dealer is replacing it this week. Lets hope an aftyer market firm can provide a long lasting replacement. I just love riding the bike & can't think of one I'd rather have

Trying to get number 5 put into my bike. This will be the second of the new design for me. So, to answer your question, yes I've had issues with the new parts. Mad props to U26 for getting 3000 miles out of his, I get about 2k from mine. Its super fun when you have to get your bike to a dealer 300 miles away and you know the bike wont start if you turn it off. I guess thats the real reason the bike came with two keys...one to leave the bike running and one to open the gas cap with stay grounded!

I had four failures, and the battery was never the issue. I even had it fail with a 12 cell lithium that spun the motor are better than consistent speeds. I'm still on the first NEW designed one though...so far.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

I'm starting to wonder if its a QA issue when the motors are finish machined. Thats the only thing that makes sense to me as far as how random the issue is.

Although its not ideal to keep bunging new sprags in its cheaper than bunging a new engine block in.

Makes you wonder how long they'll keep doing it for free. Speaking as someone who's still on the original.

What is different with the newly designed sprag? I am getting my bike delivered next week. Do y'all think I should get the new one installed or just wing it until it goes out?

I ain't got time to bleed!
