Clutch Teardown/Rebuild-1999 K1200LT-33k
Are there any brave souls in the Twin Cities of MN that would be willing to help me with a clutch teardown/rebuild? A few weeks ago I was out riding and experienced the clutch slipping in 4th and 5th gear, and yesterday there was a substantial amount of fluid on the ground underneath the main seal. When I told my wife the bad news, she recommended I take it in to get it fixed, but that option was quickly met with a look of extreme shock when I sheepishly mentioned the cost of repairing.
I've been taking my bike to Blue Cat Motorcycle in Saint Paul, and I'm going to get a ballpark quote, but I would guess the cost of repair will be somewhere around $1,600+. My other option is to do the teardown myself, which I'm hesitant to do. I've replaced the rear rotor, brake caliper and brake lines myself, but the clutch rebuild appears to be very labor intensive. It would be great to have a mentor of sorts to help with the teardown and rebuild, but maybe with a little luck I can tackle it myself!
