My '97 K1200RS has started to slip its clutch when accelerating from start or in 3rd/4th gear - at same time has developed oil leak from gearbox/clutch housing joint so assume input or output oil seal is leaking and chucking oil on to the clutch? Anyone done this job - any pointers/advice welcome!

That's a common failure. My rear engine seal went at around 30k miles and exhibited intermittent slipping in 1st gear and oil stain at engine / tranny interface. Was repaired under warranty. If you do this, make sure you replace the engine seal, the tranny input shaft seal, and the slave cylinder pushrod (a newer version with an improved wiper is now available).

It's all over here:

There is so much expert contribution from the I-BMW forum that most of your technical queries, often with photos and how to's which can solve most of your problems. Use the search facility. Before I-BMW closed, the technical section had pretty well reached saturation and most solutions could be searched and found.

I wish I had a few dvd's of all the I-BMW posts.

Best wishes

When you take the clutch carrier off, be careful to see if the outer edges of the seal are wet with oil. There are some that don't actually leak from the seal, but instead leak from the seam in the engine case that is right at the mid point of the seal horizontally. This would require you to remove the engine, but it is only about two more (big) bolts. So you're pretty much there already with the back of the bike hoisted into the air.
