Slipper clutch

Has anyone installed a slipper clutch into a k1200r? My bike is up to 44k miles and I plan on keeping it, and was wondering if that would help with longevity. Thanks Steve

If the slipper clutch uses the BMW springs and clutch internals, as the Sigma one does, then I don’t think you will increase longevity as the main issue with the clutch problem still remains - the insufficient oil feed. I also think the slipper clutches are designed to stop rear wheel skipping under heavy deceleration particularly into corners so if you don’t ride your bike that that you won’t need one. Just my opinion.

It's so nice to be insane No one asks you to explain
