Thread: K1300S Clutch specialist wanted

    K1300S Clutch specialist wanted

    I'm located in Houston, TX. I'm not a mechanic, and trying to find someone who knows all the oiling problems with the K13S clutch, and would be interested in rebuilding mine. OEM clutch pack is too costly, and so is just dropping at dealership. I used John Sykes in the UK last time, but can't find him. I've done a lot of internet searching with no luck. Any help anyone?

    You went all the way to the UK before...what about the east coast? Anton is also an independent mechanic...check with him for suggestions:

    Barnett (in Ventura CA) sells a complete set of K1300S disks - quite a bit cheaper than OEM...

    I'm probably going with the Barnett disks. Skyes used Kawi disc's, but I don't know which ones he used. Barnett seems to work well for many, and has models especially for the KxS.
