Stradale up for sugery

Hello all,


Took the Stradale out for a ride last weekend and when warmed up the starter gear/sparg started to skip so its schedule for a new sprag today. I was wondering, how is the latest sprag clutch holding up?



Also, I noticed that the Tourismo Veloce has the center stand. Any of you try to fit it on the Stradale?


Later and thanks for the input.

The new improved more better sprag clutch went for 35 000 km was no problem.

But the clutch switch died around 20 000 km and when this one is cooked the Stradale won't start anymore.
First symptom: Stradale won't start with a gear engaged then it doesn't start at all.


At least the Turislow starts in neutral with a dead switch. The Stradale doesn't.

The Turislow has also the parts to fit the center stand.
My 2015 Stradale didn't.


Btw why a centerstand on a Stradale?
Or camel hump on a thoroughbred horse.

Ha!Ha! I had it coming


I was just curious if it was possible to install it on the Stradale. It is probably pointless if you take the amount of money that someone would have to put down for all the center stand parts. I'll look for a proper wheel stand soon.

Do you know why the Stradale will not start with a broken clutch switch ?

Yes



On the TV the first two lines second column of the table below
read DON'T CARE instead of PULLED.

OTOH the Stradale has no slipper clutch.
Hence bump starting the Stradale is possible.
Slope and/or hefty rider preferable.
Even with the clutch sensor switch stuck open.

Thanks for the info Arcimboldo,


If I understand well, on the Stradale you should have the clutch lever pulled to start the engine in all the cases. Right?


I'm asking because my Stradale is starting without the clutch being pulled when in neutral.

Well Ö on MY Stradale and on the manual so it was.
Same difference like say a fuel gauge visible on dash.


Anyway then you've got a better setup for when the clutch switch sensor fails.
