2005 K1200s clutch friction plates

HI I have a 2005 k1200s. i might have put a quart of wrong oil in bike to top off. clutch is slipping now. I changed oil but clutch still slipping after 2 tank fulls. i was wondering do the friction plates off a 06-09 work on the 05. I have looked at barnetts but they dont make for the 05 years. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

I have a basket/plate stack off a 1200R that I am breaking which I would be happy to sell you if that helps. Shipping may be a problem/expensive as I am in the UK though

Contaminated clutch discs

Have you solved your clutch problem yet? If you think the slipping is due to contamination from incorrect oil, you can try to remove the clutch discs and clean them with a brake cleaning aerosol solvent. You'll have to drain the oil and fill up with your favorite JASO-MA2 oil, or if you want something cheaper try Rotella T 15W40 and see whether the clutch still slips after you've cleaned it. Make sure you also replace the filter or at least remove and drain the old oil from the filter if you intend re-using it. It may take a few miles for the clutch to regain its friction characteristics.

If the clutch still slips after cleaning the discs and replacing the oil, you have another problem.

Don't see why they won't fit if you still have the problem, its basically the same unit etc.

cheers

clutch issues

Had bad slippage from my clutch (2005 KS), and I replaced the pack with the Barnet pack without issues. Stopped the slippage. According to our local dealer, the issue is the same known for these bikes with not enough oil getting to the clutch. The clutch dirt and debris then mixes with the oil to causes a paste and causes them to slip. In the past using the lighter weight synthetic oil recommended by BMW helped as much as the fixes to replace the oil nozzle and the oil pump sprocket...I guess it was able to wash away the debris, of which there was a lot when I opened up my clutch. I have the new oil valve/spiget/button thing but haven't replaced it yet, and dont have the new sprocket yet, but will try.

My issue, which doesn't seem to be addressed elsewhere is with the funny rumbling noise that occurs during idling in neutral, which goes away if you disengage the clutch It is not the startup rattle (timing chain tensioner problem), nor the judder problem. And coming to think of it, it doesnt really fit with an oiling of the clutch problem, because in neutral the clutch isn't released...it is engaged, which means it is a noise coming from the rotation of the shaft in the transmission in the neutral position. I am wondering if has something to do with the oil pump drive behind the clutch, because it doesn't seem to fit with something in the transmission..noise there seems like it would be due to a missed neutral, and maybe be seen by some movement of the rear wheel or something (speaking out of my butt here, bc I don't really know how the neutral works).

I worry that it portends failure in the transmission, but am hopeful that it has something to do with the oil pump chain or pump itself, which is not as ominous to me).

Did you DIY your clutch plates?

I'm trying to do the same thing on my '05 KS, however I'm stuck. The BMW service manual isn't much help.
