    Question Replacing clutch parts. '07 R1200RT

    I have been servicing airheads since 72 including clutch repairs.

    Am wondering if I should attempt similar work on my Hexhead. Is it much more difficult?

    go for it...can't be much different than my 13RT that i just did...a little tedious but very doable in about 10-12hours

    Pretty simple, the 10 to 12 hours is an accurate time frame for your first go at it. The only issues I had were not having enough hands to put the wiring back around the rear frame as I was mating it back up with the engine. Good luck, post some pictures if you can.

    I did mine and I'm no mechanic.
    I followed the instructions on the BMW RSD DVD with no issue
    I'm not that fast, it took me over 20hrs to do it. (Took my time and some pictures to make sure it looked the same as before after putting it back together...)
    I replaced the OEM clutch disc with a heavy duty oil & heat resistant kevlar disc.
    You need two people to separate and reconnect the two half of the bike. (I did)

    If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

    Is it sufficient to replace the clutch disc (and I'm guessing bolts), or do the other parts of the clutch also need to be replaced when clutch is worn out?
