Just did a clutch replacement on my K1200rs. Took me a couple tries but I finally got it right. I was a bit confused about the clutch balancing...so that led to an incorrect and unbalanced install. Found the two white paint marks on the pressure plates, oriented them exactly 120 apart and everything is spinning smoothly. The two plates are what you need to pay attention to. Don't forget to grease your splines.

Looks like there's a faint white mark close to the purple one in your pic. I would go with the white mark as the paint on my parts is also white only.

Thanks for the heads up. I ended up getting it all aligned properly. I took plenty of pics and that was what helped me the most. I made sure to make my own Mark's if there is a next time.
