High mileage stelvio clutch job , clutch slipping because it is,a worn out ,b because the cush springs were rubbing on the gearbox casing .
Norge 8v GT ,
had a leaking oil pressure switch , to get to it involves seat, panels,and fuel tank …then you remove the lower fairing , on both sides to access the inlet manifolds to the throttle bodies .
then you can remove the airbox , underneath is the oil pressure switch. It also means you can get to everywhere to clean up the oil that has leaked out .
new switch has an adapter to fit new type of switch , so hopefully it won’t happen again .
clean everything up and screw it all back together.
