Mr. Cob changes a clutch in a R1150GS, or WTF happened to my bike.
This thread now documents my saga of changing a clutch in a R1150GS, lots of photos and commentary. Hopefully this will of use and help to others.
When I first got my GS I rode the hell out of it, all over the USA, into Canada and even dipped slightly into Baja. Put darn near 50,000 miles on it without any problems and then I bought the Ural. For the last five years the GS has pretty much been a garage queen but as I am now in the process of hacking it I figure I should install a new clutch.
Is this something the average home wrench bender can handle, I have changed clutches on just about every thing imaginable, trucks, cars, jeeps and many bikes, just looking at the GS gives me the phuckin whillies when it comes to anything beyond oil changes, valve setting and spark plug changes.
So am wuss or should I just dive into this thing? Any links to a "how to" would be nice, I don't know if this is covered in the maintenance CD, it won't play in my Mac so I am just kinda floundering about here.
