Hi there everyone, well the verdict on my slipping clutch is in, the dreaded slave cylinder leak. this means to me maintenance has nothing to do with this failure. I have had the clutch flushed every year since new. There was lots of clutch lining left, everything else looks really good, splines other seals, still changing the rear main and trans input seal as well as new slave cylinder and drilled the bleed holes. Sure wish the ceramic clutch was available. This is the first clutch I have had to put in in my 35 years of riding and I kept my XS1100 for 23 years. Not overly pleased, mostly the cost for the repair, love the bike, still think its the best ride out there. but not looking forward to another repair in 58000 kms. BMW should get its act together and get back to the reliability that it used to have. I can live with the high maintenance costs, valves, brake flushes etc, but clutch and rear axle failures at such low mileage, its just sad when you are paying a premium price for the bike to get that extra quality. OK thanks for letting me Vent. Now lets go for a ride.
