clutch

  1. Clutch lever 'suddenly' went semi-loose (lighter pull) while riding 2019 F850GS!

    So I was riding my bike today and while pulling away from traffic lights (quite gently) I was letting out the clutch and suddenly the lever felt very different (much lighter pull, like something had suddenly 'slipped' but not broken). The lever didn't reset as far forward as it normally does...

    Seal replacement, clutch plate questions on K25 Camhead

    So I split the bike over a three day period of slow, careful work in the garage in order to track down the source of the oil leaking down the back of the motor. Some questions for those of you who have taken this long strange journey: Turns out the leak was coming from the rear main seal, not...
  3. Clutch gone with a bang

    Had the unfortunate situation of my clutch going yesterday with no warning. Did a long ride with no problems, left the bike on the road and when I went to walk it onto the drive, I put it in gear, clutch in and no throttle and the bike shot forward, taking me with it. Crashed into a rocky bank...
  4. New Clutch - slipping in top gear and under load

  6. Failing clutch / gearbox?

    Hi, I have 2013 GS LC, 20.000 km on the clock. Own it for about a month, first bmw I have. So, yesterday I noticed that my gearbox produces a series of little "aftershocks" when 1st or 2nd is engaged while standing. To a lesser extent I can feel a vague bouncing when riding and downshifting to...

    Clutch Casing Protection - an observation

    Was looking at the tracer at a bike show recently... this struck me, the small cover / protector on the clutch casing. It kinda sits where your boot toe area could rub up against the clutch casing the odd time on the S10. Handy if someone could make one. ( just a thought ).
  8. Clutch F800gs replacement

    I have found some useful links on clutch replacement. See the links below, I only want to replace the inner and outer friction plates as I am on a skinny budget ATM. Any help with where I can purchase just these two plates (OEM or aftermarket), not the whole set? Note that I am in Australia...
  9. GS LC hopping away......

    Hello, I wonder if anyone can help. I have a 2013 BMW 1200 GS LC and sometimes find that when I pull away, especially on a hill the bike hops forward as I am letting the clutch out - can do this 4-5 times until I finally get going. It not only looks bad (embarrassing), it sounds bad and could...
