And along with the sensor adapter if Accossato uses the same thread pitch as Brembo....equals more money.

I was in the exact conundrum you faced when I bought my Gale Speed m/c. My solution was perhaps a little extreme: I bought the matching clutch perch. And man, am I glad I did, because it has erased the 636's inability to locate neutral as I came to a stop. It has eradicated the occasional false neutrals I had if my shifting was not "boot up the butt" sure. Clutch work is like 'bud-dah'.

As an aside, I bought new full floating Brake Tech AXIS Cobra rotors... front and rear. O.E. is only semi-floating front, and the rear are solid. Core Moto brake lines (f & r), and new brake pads and Motul synthetic fluid.

Any one wanna buy my gold/green levers? Make me an offer and they just might be yours.... If you need a slightly used O.E. Nissin m/c send me a PM, and make an offer. The clutch has a lovely black & green adjuster @ the lever, again PM me and make and offer. I also have the rotors (front & rear), make an offer. Any/all could be yours by the weekend/early next week.

Were you able to retain the clutch switch?

Stumbled across this article today. Sheds a little more light on the no replacement parts issue Slo brought up. This article and Slo's advice is enough push me away from an Accossato. I'm just going to keep an eye out for a nice Brembo unit.

A new clutch switch is included. Super easy install. Even the clamp is hinged with one Allen type bolt. It is exactly the same on the m/c size as well.

The only 'hitch', as it were, is that the blades on the new Gale Speed were slightly too wide to go into the female O.E. side. So a couple swipes on my belt sander took care of that, voilà! Very simple, very clean project.

The one I have are the 32-34mm clutch perch kit, pt #29000109; and the VRC variable adjustable master cylinder, pt #W-WCY-06R6-28, 17mm with 18-16mm, both come with the folding levers.

Graves Yamaha use and sell Gale Speed. They are the Yamaha factory race team in the U.S.A.

Galespeed VRC Variable lever Ratio Control Mastercylinders

I think unless you have a prior relationship with Graves you would get a little more "luv" from E.D.R. Performance, (503)672-7223.

EDR Performance

Ask for Anton, tell him Mark with the green '15 ZX-6R that he sold the m/c & clutch perch to sent you. And just ask him what kind of deal he can do for you (esp. if you buy both). Ask him why they recommend the Gale Speed VRC over the Brembo RCS. They carry/sell both brands. And as I've said elsewhere, they build a tonne of luscious race/hi-per street bikes.

The only "sticky wicket" is that Super K use a goofy brake light switch unlike brands H, S, &Y... and even Ducati & Apilia... even Husqvarna dirt bikes! So you need a double hole banjo bolt with the switch built in it for the m/c.

Sorry for the nearly identical post, I blame it on a lack of caffeine. I'm really not very civil until I've had at least 2-cups.
