Re: K1200LT reverse problem
If it worked good before the clutch I would suspect it was not connected back up correctly. Three large wires, Black with Yellow stripe. One has a Red sleeve at the eyelet, It goes to the battery +. One has a Black sleeve at the eyelet and goes to the starter tie point behind the battery. The last one has a Brown sleeve at the eyelet and goes to the ground tie point behind the battery.
If those are correct then the problem could be with the switches on the F-R shaft as they are often damaged during a clutch change and they control the signal from the starter button to either the starter (in F) or the Reverser (in R). If they were damaged the bike would not start and if they were not repaired correctly the starter could activate in reverse and be very fast.
