You are one hard core adventure type if you actually replace that clutch where that pic was taken. A tree with some limbs and a come a long would have made the job much easier. Challenging enough in a good well lighted , lots of tools shop

You sure got my attention with all these challenges. GOOD LUCK I will hold off on my on the road to AK repair after you are safe back home.

RE: The clutch. Unless youre really handy with tools and familiar with Bimmers, Id have the mechanic do the job and be on your way.

So we start to take apart the bike.



We took the fuel tank off and it kept leaking gas. It says something about the fuel pump being pressurized. I couldn't figure out how to depressurize it so fuel kept coming out. We plugged it with ear plugs and it stopped.



Got all the body work and tank off. We set up a little camp in the parking lot. It started to get dark so we pulled out our headlamps.



It took us a while to figure out how to raise the tail up to expose the transmission. We finally figured out how to remove the airbox. We first removed the transmission but forgot to remove the started. We put the transmission back on and removed the starter.


EURIKA!!!!
This is at about 2 in the morning.



From the BMW shop I also got a main seal. I would replace that if the clutch was covered in oil. Luckily there was no oil around so I didnt replace it.

New plate vs vs old.



At about 3 in the morning we got the new clutch in. Im super happy!



Around 6 hours later the bike is back together! We took an hour nap during that time.



There is a laundromat nearby so we do a quick load of wash. We eat lunch and get ready to get on the bike again!

I wish we could have done that. The trip started July 3rd, so finding someone on July 4th would be impossible and to expensive. A thousand dollar repair bill would have shortened the trip considerably.

You are to be congratulated , I have now put my jaw back in place . My AK fix was peanuts compared to that all night repair.

Carry on there , you have really got our attention now and we look forward to this RR.

Having "assisted" on a similar job, I have some idea of what's involved. I'm seriously impressed with your accomplishment in a parking lot in the dark.

Looking forward to the rest of the report.

I don't know what I'm more impressed with: your gal hopping on the back of your new bike and continuing the ride after her get-off OR that nice piece of mechanic work you did in the parking lot of an auto parts store. In the dark. On your own.

Wow. Seriously, wow.

Kudos to you both.

Watching this RR with great interest and not just a little envy.
