    Oberon bs MPL? Discuss

    After a superb run out yesterday I noticed my clutch is a heavy to hold at junctions and the bite is quite quick which is ok as I can ride to it's quirks, however I will change the slave over the winter.

    Been comparing the two replacements and noticed a considerable difference in price.

    Does MPL have and disadvantages over the more expensive Oberon one?

    I had the same issue with my clutch after my last run. All I did was bleed the clutch line at the lever and it was fixed.

    Personaly I would go for the Oberon, which is actualy cheaper 92 retail for the Oberon (less with discount) and 149 retail for the mpl.

    I saw some leak problems about the MPL on a couple of forums including http://apriliaperformance.myfastforu...sutra14480.php

    I think the MPL 'housing' is made from 2 parts which is the cause of this. The Oberon is one part construction.

    It's also worth noting that although the Oberon only appears to have a 12 month warranty they will fix it for free for ever as long as you've not modified it.
