Re: K1200LT Clutch
That is a good question. If you can sort out that you have the newer pressure plate the new disks go with it. The pressure plate dishes when it gets hot from slipping. It is about 9 or so inches across and difficult to to get a flat edge in there buy you can, outer frame causes some access issues. But if it is dished at all, we're talking .010" or even less it is not a good thing. Because it is so deep into the bike, I go crazy and change just about everything that could possibly cause trouble. I install a new pressure plate, new friction disk and new spring plate. New main nut and orientate the nut washer correctly as shown in Clymer, not the BMW OEM instructions. Just look at it as it comes out. In another forum a fellow purchased a friction plate that came from china. .5mm too thick compared to OEM. His throw out stuff came out to being incorrect by quite a bit. the following link is good information. Starting about post #28 the throw out rod length comes into play due to aftermarket friction disk.
