Newbie K1200R 2008 Clutch noises / slight vibration
apologies for asking this question I know that there are several posts about the K1200R and clutch basket related issues but they seem
mostly to affect earlier model years.
I recently bought a K1200R 2008 with 7560km on it. Yes "only" 7560km. As i am new to BMW bikes I have 2 questions:
Increased vibration when I get above 6000RPM independent of the gear i am in (will post this under a separate entry)
The other question is related to the clutch. This is independent if the bike is warm or cold.
When i have the bike in neutral for example at a traffic light I started to notice a slight vibration in my handlebars. Nothing major but noticeable.
At the same time, i also can hear that there is another sound coming out of the clutch area. It's hard to explain it's like a soft growling.
As soon as i pull the clutch everything is gone.
According to my local BMW dealer, this is quite normal. Anybody has any experience?
I researched on the forums and came across that replacing the clutch basket has improved the situation for a lot of people but this only seems to
effect earlier models. I am really puzzled and it annoys me a bit.
Hope someone can help.
