Exclamation Clutch issues

With the great amount of people discussing clutch issues on the K bikes, particularly the 2003 GT, I am amazed that BMW has not stepped up and fixed the oil leak problems. I for one have filed a recall complaint with the NHTSA (WWW.NHTSA.DOT.GOV) and taken the 5 minutes it takes to discribe the problem.... perhaps the Governement will require a recall of the situation.

I encourage anyone else that has had this issue to do the same, 10K-30K is silly for a complete new clutch.

I think if they haven't fitted metal QD's with Viton O rings yet, to stop you turning into a roman candle, the clutch O ring seal design has a long way to go!

It's even more silly to have a bike designed with so much labor cost to even get to the clutch. Perhaps they thought it would last the life of a K motor.
