2000 K12RS Clutch Replacement
Time has come to replace the clutch, now slipping in all gears. Probably caused by oil leaking through rear engine seal. Gearbox not loosing any oil. Just looking at spare parts I need (bike still assembled). When replacing clutch, do you replace cover (21212333472), Clutch housing (21212333471), spacer ring (21211451274)? Bike has done 52k miles. Should I replace brushes in alternator and starter motor? Also, the clutch actuating cylinder is prone to leaking, but does not have a rod seal shown in exploded view, only gasket (23122352156). I have heard of people repairing these. Looked at a 2002 model and cylinder arragement looks the same. Where are the seals located and what size are they.
Can you get by without using any BMW special tools to remove/replace clutch (and all the other bits) or do you really need them?
Looks like the whole replacement will take me a few weekends. Planning a 3k mile trip at xmas so not much time. Some parts are ex Germany here in Australia.
Thanks for comments.
2000 K1200RS Pacific Blue (not the fastest color) but looks good!
