In between both scenarios.

At this point then, I would take it apart again, and verify the correct amount of discs ( fiber, and metal)

My bike sat all night on the centre stand and I spilled no oil. Layed a towel down anyway.
Good luck to Loutre on that culture thing...............

Thanks JR, that's the page I'm looking at right now. I'm starting to think all my plates are 14mm, making the pack 2mm thicker?

I have it apart right now and just took all the discs out and put them back in to make sure all is right.



Here's the positioning now.

About to bolt it all back up and see if anything compressed enough to disengage.

Everything seems to be the same as when I did this the other night so I'm not sure...

Ok I misread the driver width. I interpreted that as plate thickness.

So there goes that possibility.

Took it apart and put it back together twice now, same result.

With it on the centre stand I am able to pull the lever and while sitting roll the rear tire with my foot, it takes some force but can move.

I'm beginning to think the oil is sticking the plates and I'm going to try riding it, hoping that dragging it under engine load it will free up.

Hopefully the rear brake can overcome the slightly engaged clutch.

When you guys replaced your clutch, was there any grab at first or did it spin freely?

It will never spin freely, sorry if I missed that as your original question.
There will be "some" drag until the oil warms up and it will be worse with new clutch plates until they scrub in a bit.

OK went for a ride, when I started it lurched forward slightly but immediately "broke in" Im thinking the overnight marinade in oil swelled the pads just enough to thicken the pack, thats the story I'm going with.

Man o man, I forgot what a new clutch feels like!

Time to go wear it out!

Thanks for the help guys, much appreciated.

C4, great to hear it is working. Quick question on the cable slack you are running. How much? Thanks.

Getting ready to do the clutch on a 2011 F800GS

I wanted to say thanks to everyone here for posting. Especially Chitown for the original breakdown in the out of town that got the ball rolling. Everyone's been very informative and helpful.

C4.... Your Avatar brings tear to my eyes. A few months ago I possessed a DJI Phantom with ZenMuse Gimbal cradling a Hero 3+. Got dozens of flights on it before I must have unwittingly hit the "return to China" function on the transmitter. The Phantom flew off on a b-line, unresponsive to any of my commands. Responding only to the passionate stray electrons which stole its circuit board and my investment.

Successful Clutch Replacement

I love this site. I replaced my clutch using this thread and the manual as a guide. It went well and I put 1400 miles on it this weekend. Thanks guys.

Thank You very much for this thread!
I have had lot of help from it and dont think i would have gotten everything correct without Your posts here!
I have manual clutch now for a change, until my EFM Autoclutch arrives (have had it earlier, now waiting for new one as warranty replacement)...kinda weird feeling to use normal clutch.

Got my new clutch kit.

BMW techs said to replace all the bolts on the side cover and the gasket as well.

Mentioned that the bolts are expansion bolts are prone to failure after first use. Since the bolts/gasket had to be ordered, I went off with the clutch and will use what I already have regarding bolts/gasket.

How do I set the slack in the cable? Perusing through this thread, that's the only detail I see that's not mentioned. The amount is mentioned (1-4mm), but I didn't see the how.

Thanks
