pissed off !!! crappy bmw clutch

do not delay the modification of the clutch. it needs to have some where for the clutch fluid to drain. It will cost $175 for parts to do it now. Or if you delay and have it done for you it will cost $1500 when it does leak on your clutch plate. I down loaded the instructions and it leacked the weekend befor I was planning to do it. Frigging bike only has 29000ks, peice of crapp

I replaced the dry clutch with a wet one. No mods needed.

It is not the clutch that is crappy, it is the slave cylinder! The clutch is just fine. Very, very few have ever worn out a clutch plate.

How many times was the clutch fluid changed? I have 60k miles on my bike with no problem so far?

Here we go again , Your at it again slagging the LT and taking the PISS , sure you will have loads of recalls and many other problems much worse than the LT . I wanted the LT because i wanted the best fully equipped bike available and I would not consider the GT because it has not prooved it,s self yet . I,ve test road the GT and i,m not impressed with the brakes and the vibration and the lack of comfort and extra,s compared with the LT.
I guess that you probably regret selling your LT because you miss not having the best bike available and now your,e lumbered with second best.

Allllllrighty, then! This ought to be fun.

I'll go get the popcorn and find a recliner...

I don't speak for Joe, but he obviously misses his LT so much that he has to ride back to Columbus visit it once in awhile.

Nope, this flame has no legs. We are going to need to look elsewhere for our entertainment.

Thanks Richard,
I agree.. This tread is going no where and I would appreciate that if anyone wants to start flaming, then the Aussie forum is NOT the place to start it...

There was a happy ending to this story...bike and rider back 'in love' with each other and and as they say...That's all Folks!

Thread closed.

Cheers,

Ian
