    Can't get it from a dealer ??? That is where I have obtained all of my specialized tools.
    Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

    I just did mine on an R1100 and had no problem aligning it by eye.

    I've also seen on the interweb where people find a socket that will fit down inside the clutch splines, then wrap the actuating rod with duct tape until it fits (centered) inside the socket.

    Clutch tools

    Thanks for the ideal about the socket. I'll try the dealer route also. That's why I went to this Forum. Forums have been a lot of help with my other bike

    Ande (real name?)

    The forums will be even more help if you put the year/model of your bike in the thread title.. please read: http://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread.php?t=46055. I've added the info to the thread title.

    It also might be helpful if we had some idea where you're from. Someone near you may have a tool they could loan you. It's easy to add that info automatically if you add it and your real name to your "sig" (look under "User CP"..)

    Call Ken Lively. I'm not sure if the K12 uses the same alignment tool as the K100s and K75s. He might know.




    Here's the e-mail I got from him a few years ago. Call him and make sure the prices are still correct.
