Clutch replacement is a simple procdure for the BMW K11RS! Here is a simple how-to:


First, remove a few simple components from the rear of the machine...


Second, unscrew -- I mean, strip the heads off of -- I mean, DRILL OUT and REMOVE WITH A VISE GRIPS the clutch basket retaining bolts


Last, get underneath your bike and realize that after a half-hour of drilling and wrenching, you still need a 30mm socket after the stores have closed.

I just don't get it. Do you BMW guys just enjoy pain?
