Yes, it is! The broken wire affects only a special series and results in problems with the clutch. BMW advised dealers not only to change the clutch but to replace the oil pump, too! Also, the oil pan has to be removed and cleaned. No other actions are required as BMW classifies the risk ot further damage as very small.ZZR1200 said:Is it fixed, or?

What kind of problems are you having with your clutch?kralties said:Hello,what do you mean by special series,as I have a k1200s produced in june 05,i have 6000kms and have just started to have problems with the clutch,i have spoken to my dealer and he is awaiting a reply from Germany,thanks for any further infomation.
Don't worry. All this is covered by the warranty and the bike will run fine when it is fixed.kralties said:The problems are that the clutch is only disengaging when the lever is released from the full pulled back position and it disengages straight away ,also the bike starts to crawl when stopped at traffic lights,also it is coming difficult to find neutral,also when the bike is turned off and left in gear and i pull the clutch in to push it in the garage the bike does not come free properly and seems that the clutch is not disengaging properly.
Maybe do a good clutch fluid bleed??kralties said:I have just had the whole clutch and oil pump changed and the bike has remained with the same problem that it crawls when it is in 1st,cannot find neutral when the bike is stopped,now we are waiting for the reply from the dealer as he had to contact germany.
I just returned from a 1500 mile trip and my clutch failed about 300 miles into the trip in the same manner you describe.kralties said:,today 7/5/06 after putting about 150 kms on the bike i have discovered that the clutch problem has arisen again,the bike goes back to the mechanic on tuesday.
I had a similar problem although not quite as bad. My dealer first bled the air out but like with you, the problem came back. They replaced the slave cylinder this weekend and so far so good.mark5lam said:The problem appears to be air getting into the line via a bad Slave Cylinder (parts on order). They say they've seen this problem before and changing the Slave Cylinder has been the fix.
