Enjoy The Ride
I buy all of my clutch parts from MotoBins in the UK. I don't know if they can ship to you. San Jose Costa Rica has a BMW motorcycle dealer.
I'll be interested to see the answer to that question. I was under the impression that when you replace the clutch plate you also need to replace the spring plate, the pressure plate, and the housing cover. Can you get away with only doing the clutch plate? Maybe it's OK since you only have 28,000 miles?This is so far the list that I've prepared for this job. Could you guys take a look and advise? (Beech sent me the O-Rings) Thanks:

I think I had about 27,000 miles when mine first started slipping and it had not been abused in any way. I nursed it for several more years until a trip to Newfoundland got it to the point of being intolerable. I had 54,000 miles at the time of the repair if memory serves (maybe not precisely that, but I am too lazy to go look at my long thread on my repair saga). I debated replacing the slave and the main seal on the engine output shaft, but I am definitely of the “if it ain’t broke don’t break it” school of thought and left both as they were. I did take the slave apart and inspect the bore, piston, seal and bearing and they all looked good so I greased the bearing and put it back in. I would have replaced the seal if I could have found one, but I could not so I didn’t.So, I'm finally setting aside the days to tackle this over the holidays. Thank you Mr. Trevelino for the parts list. The prices have definitively gone up since 2006.
One question, seems my clutch slave cylinder is not leaking as the level has not gone down. Is it absolutely necessary to replace the slave cylinder. That'd save me about $200.
My problem as I explained is living in Nicaragua with no dealer, and parts can take about a month to get here.
Your advice is appreciated.
