k1200GT 2003 - clutch line replacement suggestions


I am thinking of replacing my clutch line to be a steel braided. I wonder if the procedure is too involved and I should wait for a later time such as a clutch replacement miles.

I don't have a particular problem with the current clutch line (27k miles) but I did replace all the brake lines this month and held off on the clutch line. Spiegler didn't have my 2003 version. I would like to have things consistent, new brake lines and new clutch lines. I will say dealing with brake lines and all the air I put in the ABS was a challenge.

The only video's I see are guys stripping their bike down to remove the clutch plates. They are pulling off the Final Drive. I just want to wiggle in there and not remove the tire, etc. The picture I have attached is probably from a K1200LT

What is the general steps for the 2003 K1200GT ?

Your advise is welcome.

Hi Bakerbeamer. Clutch slip is different from just replacing the clutch lines. Start a new thread on clutch slipping and see what advise you get back. I haven't experienced clutch slippage yet.

For me, I have the original clutch rubber lines. Some advisors, suggest replacing the brake lines to be steel which I did. I didn't have a clutch line, but thought it good to replace it too. Only problem, is the bottom connection seems buried behind lots to parts. Not sure if it is worth the take the rear wheel off. The Final drive, etc. I can get by without doing the swap.
