Re: K1200LT clutch only slips when warm
My first clutch started slipping at 40 K but I had abused it while pulling a trailer. It would only slip once in 5th and I could not repeat it again until 5 - 10 minutes later while riding. I continued to ride for 6 more months then tore it down. There was no oil contamination just a lot of fuzz from wear and it was still within the wear limits. My second clutch I kept the RPM always below 1500 until the clutch was fully engaged and that clutch was still viable at 102 k when I went in to replace the transmission input shaft bearing.
Until you really know the cause (oil, brake fluid contamination or just wear) there is no point in spaying anything in there as you may do more harm than good. A pull of the slave cylinder will reveal a lot as well as drilling a small hole in the bottom of the intermediate housing. You will know if it is contamination and can then choose a path for the next step.
