Yep, that what I was referencing as I was unaware of OEM segmented discs (as was Anorak, apparently). When Steptoe called it a "standard disc" I figured he meant OEM, but I wondered if it was an aftermarket disc since it was segmented. Others here know more about that than me though.

Yesterday afternoon I dropped off the clutch parts at Ottawa Clutch and they will be ready this afternoon. Great service there.

They are using new organic friction material as the kevlar they have is too large for the little BMW disc. They will also reface both of the mating surfaces and check the spring pressure to make sure it's up to spec.

The total is a whopping $90 and it'll be as good as new as compared to buying the kit from BMW for over $800CDN

If the spring isn't right can the reheat it or something to make it right? Or will you have to replace that part?

Actually I never asked

He figured it was fine just by looking at it but I'll know more this afternoon.

So here's the clutch plate resurfaced with new friction material and the other parts milled flat and bead blasted which all cleaned up nicely. $90 which I think is pretty reasonable as BMW wants $800CDN for a new set.

I'm trying to find the bolt tightening specs but I'm coming up empty, does anyone have the torque vales handy??

Looks Great! Who surfaced the plates? I have a couple here I want to do!
Right out of the BMW 1150 OE Manual: Should be the same for the 1100 - M6 replaceable bolts?
Tightening torque:
Housing cover to flywheel ............................ 12 Nm

I took Dirt Boy's advice in post 3 and took them to Ottawa Clutch, they did the whole job in one day. I guess if you mailed them in it wouldn't be too expensive and easy as it's still in Canada. If you want you can send them to me and I'll drop them off for you.

http://www.ottawaclutch.com/

The owner is a biker and we had a good chat, he's done a few BMW bike clutches already so he's familiar.

Thanks for the specs, now back to the garage!

Uh-oh...the clutch indexing marks are all gone....now whaddya gonna do?

This from my 2001 GS REPROM;

Clutch to crankshaft hub, lightly oiled screws (new screws), 40Nm initial, 32 degrees rotation.

Housing cover to flywheel, 12Nm.

A little dab of moly fortified grease where the spring contacts the pressure plate and housing.

Keep us informed about the performance of the new clutch...that's quite a savings.

Did they perhaps also balance the whole assembly?

I used an angle grinder cut a little slot in the edges to index the parts with a painted line I put on the flywheel. You can see one on the flexible tang right at the bottom of the pic.

Not exactly sure of your terminology ..... 'housing cover' are the 2 pressure plates with the clutch in between?

Hopefully, this will clear it up.
