Iíve had the Oberons on my 2017 RGU for about a year, clutch and brake. My observations are this:
1. They are expensive. Way overpriced but I thought they would be a real solution so I ordered them.
2. If I knew about the friction zone fix for the 2019 models, I would have had that done instead of going this route.
3. Most people say they are uncomfortable and I tend to agree, but to say they are bothersome to me would not be true.
4. When I took my bike in for the clutch recall, the tech said that the clutch was not fully disengaging when I had the adjustment set at 2 or 3. So now I run it at 4 to be sure I am disengaging. Thatís an improvement, but a fix for me would have been 2 or 3.
Iím still undecided about taking the clutch apart to install that thicker ring which moves the friction zone more to the middle. Thatís why I bought the Oberons, to improve my slow speed maneuvering, but I have to admit that I have really enjoyed having the engagement clear out to the end for shifting. It makes a shift more of a ďflickĒ, and I can go through the gears almost sounding like an automatic transmission.
Thereís a place that I travel, when I want to roam, and nobody knows it but me.
