Not to steal the thread, but I noticed the tell-tale sign of the main seal leak. Do you know how long the bike is out for? I'm planning a mexican mystery tour and i'm not sure if i have it fixed before or after. the likelyhood of me roasting the clutch is high in mexico so it would be replaced under warrantee anyway (as most have had their clutch replaced due to the seal failure)

How is BMW toronto? There is a new BMW dealer in ottawa, but i have a hard time trusting anyone after going to my previous dealer....although the open road dealer in newmarket is great (which is where i bought my bike)

I also have the paint peeling on the heads. Maybe the FD will blow and I'll have the qequivalent of a new bike

Find out how much they're going to charge you. you should also follow the instructions that come with the clutch to have the pressure plate also replaced. You may be better off supplying the parts yourself after you sourced them from the US and had them delivered to a US address near the border.

You may want to give these folks a call and get a quote from them too:

It's a labor intensive job and your bike will have to be cut in half to get at the clutch.. it's scary to see it that way, but it all went back together well.
