I was looking over my K1200R maintenance schedule (inspection with Annual Inspection every 20000 km) and came across this service- lubricate ball-joint clamp and ball seat-
Can anyone shed any light as to what this would be?

The front end suspension is just over the radiator.

Now how to go about the service is not my thing.

I read that some of these have been warranty items, and maybe so from neglect(?).

I found out what they meant by ball-joint clamp. This is so stupid... it is the clamp that holds the exhaust on from the headers to the actual exhaust. Why anyone would on purpose remove this just to put some anti-seize on there I don't know.

i've changed exhausts a few times. it was stuck once. maybe that is the reason, but then again i am not the only one who has done this. still i will skip the anti seize.

The service calls for any time you remove the exhaust to put anti-seize on the clamp and ball which I and the dealer has done when it needed to come off, tire change and final drive oil change. I just don't see why you would do this for no other purpose than to put the anti-seize on.
