I experienced clutch slipping after 18k miles on my 2001 LT only last year, BMW wanted £1500 to replace the clutch, plus it was due for a service, which would've been extra . . . it was a crossroads for me, i had, had the LT for 3 years and thought it may be an opportunity to replace it with something different, I had a test ride on a Pan European and an FJR1300, both times I got back on my LT and thought no way, there is just no comparison . . . so I bit the bullet, went to an independent BMW mechanic near Chorley, Lancashire, a guy called Roy Gardner, who I would recommend by the way, he took the clutch apart, diagnosied the slipping as a bent push rod, but seeing as though he had the clutch in bits I had him replace it anyway, and including an 18k service he charged me just a little over £700. Bike still runs like a dream.
