Kidding right?

You expect such a major design change in an "update"?

Clutch got all the major redesign you will see for the next four years at least.

Also dual clutch MANY cars have and some bikes I believe.

Also i heard today BMW are redesigning the clutch. Weather we will get this as a service bulletin or it will be fitted on next years bike, we will have to wait and see!
Where did you hear this? It's a proven clutch that has been on the S1000RR and Ducati Multistrada for awhile now. What's the problem?

Go get a honda if you want a dual clutch...nothing wrong with the standard clutch for me.

Gotta be either a bad batch of pads or an issue with the linked braking algorithm.

If it was that proven they wouldn't be changing them in the uk, at least 10 - 15 off of one forum alone. I heard it 1. from my friendly dealer and 2. from my Friend that has just come back from the factory! the clutch in the gs only has three bolts. The multistrada has 6 bolts, the same as the s1000rr. Which looks like where the issues lie. I'm not talking about the slipper clutch it is the design of the plate holding the clutch pack together.

You will probably need to give some proof before spreading around that half WGS out there have clutch issues...

Would be odd to have so many issues reported in a UK forum (got a link?) but not here?

I can't be arsed to find the others but they are there if you can be bothered to find them
Tbh I really can't be bothered with posting any other issues I find with my bike or information I find out from a friend with factory connections on this forum. Due to being accused of lying or disinformation. I will going back to be a lurker. I have never said I don't like the bike! what I have said is problems I have suffered. I don't like the lack of support from BMW for a new model and parts are a joke!

Oh and NLS when did 10-15 in the uk turn into half of the WGS's twat!

Have a nice life!

The brakepads are to soft in combination with the linked braking.

It was a problem with the brake pads. They were manufactured too thin, so not enough pad. The replacements are much thicker sintered pads, so should last much longer. Check your rear pads guys, as BMW will replace them under warranty if they are wearing too quickly. The front pads are fine by the way.
