shush319,

Not all is as rosy as seems.
In Laos, where I live, we can not get PayPal or use Western Union to various countries.
I believe I have seen some in India offering PayPal but can't remember which ones.
Mind you I have been looking to find a way to get these now for over 3 years.
Almost all of the suppliers are on Instagram with no other contact information.
I'll have a look through my files to see if I can post some of them here.
You may also contact the chap that helped me out, mustu588
He is a busy person travelling between India and Malaysia so be patient.


Well that blows. They should use PayPal, then the currency conversion would be done automatically..... Do you have a part number or link to the "several suppliers" in India?

Indeed, that is where the instrument unit lives.
The piece I am addressing is the top cover of the instrument unit of which the top layer (made of a rubber material that deteriorates over time as were the buttons and antenna of my old Sony waterproof mobile phone).
When dismantling the cover make sure you do it over a surface where you can easily find anything dropped.
There is a rubber seal between the cover and the unit as well as the 2 (maybe on ABS bikes 3x) little black plastic pins and 2x (maybe 3x) plastic or rubber spacers that could/can/will (Murphy) fall out.

I'll be looking to add this later, but it's under that piece. KTM Duke 125 & 200 Carbon Fiber Parts (motocomposites.com)

I gave the old girl (200) a wash/polish at the #forestgarage

Looks great mate. I know it gets well used too and is no garage queen. Scrubs up well !

Interesting tyre choice. Road type rear / dual sport type front….. 😎

Oh - and is that someone’s finger stuck in the bottom of your radiator ? 🤣🤣

Fair reason to wash her regularly riding such dust roads high on iron-ore content.
That 'finger' is what a Simco hose looks like after riding these roads for 6-7 years ;)

Today I didn't do to my duke but my duke did to me: something broke inside the gear lever star like sprocket that selects gears and there is no longer retain after I shift. Spoke with the dealer told me that there is a little cheap part failure in there but the clutch cover must be stripped and replaced .... I bet I am not the first one with that problem.

Sorry to hear of your simhap.
Not all that clear to me what you are talking about though.
The gear shift mechanism sits behind the clutch cover, correct but why would you need to change the clutch cover?
Maybe you ask your dealer what exactly broke.
As far as I am aware there are VERY few to no problems in the 125, 200, 250 or 390 gear shift mechanisms.
The only part I know of that is changed out sometimes is part # 28 (locking lever) or the part that keeps the gear in the gear that was selected.
This can be bought in the after-market from FactoryPro through some US parts dealers and apparently has better retaining capabilities and it runs on a ceramic bearing.
Any other part broken will be bad luck.
I hope you get it sorted soon and at a reasonable price.
Still very curious if the clutch cover is damaged.

Sorry I wasn't clear. The clutch cover is ok doesn't need replacement, just the gasket. At the picture you showed it's the number 2 mechanism that has the problem. I saw the repair manual, there is a spring there that I am almost certain it's broken so every time I have to change gear I always have to return manually the gear lever at the center. For example, if I want to go from 4th gear to 5th I have first to slightly press down the lever and then try to put the 5th. If I don't do that I cannot put the 5th gear. Lever goes up but no gear changing.

It's not so much of a problem till I get to the dealer but I need more time to change the gears.
