Clutch replacement

Have any of you replaced your clutch?
After how many miles did it go?
If you had the labor done at a shop/dealership, how much did they charge?
If you did the work yourself, how many hours? How intensive is it?
Total cost?
Any aftermarket options?

This is for a 2004 BMW R1100S 6spd

...it's quite involved and you need time, space and a few tools that probably do NOT come with your standard Sears/Costco Toolkit.

Calculate a full day (if you have ALL the parts/tools needed) and about $450 in parts (depending on what is needed and what other surprises you may find)

It's not overly complicated, just involved... you need to completely remove the rear half of your bike (I love that..... still do!)... don't skimp on replacing parts while you are in there... check the splines, the clutch slave and all the other wonderful things that are all of a sudden accessible...

Should be a fun project if you do it the first time... depending on your location, there might be a Pelican around who can/will help you.

Good luck.

Thanks for the reply guys. Any special BMW only tools needed?

What kind of jack should I get? I'm guessing it can't be done on a side stand?

Zeke... that LAST QUESTION LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THAT you may not want to attempt this to begin with!?

Dude, if you don't have the wrenching skills, DO NOT START THIS PROJECT! You need a motorcycle jack (at least) and an engine hoist would not hurt on top of that (that way you can remove the tail end as a whole....)

Take a close look at the Maintenance Manual... and - as I said before - good luck!

Thanks for the concern. I'm just really new to wrenching on bikes not a newbie to wrenching. I have an engine lift and have one-manned it's use several times.

I asked about the jack because I have a center stand and it seemed "flatbutt in Arkansas" thread showed he did the job on the bike's center stand. I wanted to know if I should bother buying a Motorcycle Jack or just put the bike on it's center stands?

I have never taken a bike apart so in that aspect i'm new but there's a first time for everything. I just don't want one of those moments where you stare at all the parts and say..."f*ck how's all this going to go back together" or realize i need some special tool=delay(would like to do it in a day) So I'd rather know what's involved.

The side stand question well, i looked closer at my bike and see, why it seems um...novice-like.

Zeke,
We stripped "uncle Flatty's" bike of the plastic, and rear subframe while it was on the centerstand... For tranny removal, we used my 2 post Car lift with an adapter plate that I fabricated that the bike bolts to.

This thread where we greased Repoe3's splines shows the take apart process a little better. Lots of pictures that Repoe took and a great account of every detail

Dr. Splinelube…or How I stopped worrying and learn to love the bike…

BTW an ATV lift like harbor frieght or sears sells works pretty good, but the bike needs to be supported well.

I just had the spline lube, clutch slave, etc done at a dealer. It's about 8.5 hrs labor, about $450 for clutch parts not counting the slave. I went in and inspected parts while it was in pieces and was glad I opted to pay the man. I do all my work on my klr and most of my maintenance on the s, but after searching some of the threads here, I decided it was more of a job than I wanted to tackle in my single car garage. Good luck.

boy, that thread just gets better and better every time i read it

pulitzer stuff :P

and to think, i have not done a single thing, other than oil changes and checking the valves since. of course, added a PCIII, but that aint maint. so looking back, that was around 15k miles on the bike...its has been almost 3 years and nearly 45k on it now and the replacement bearings and pivot pins are still sitting in the fastener/misc. parts bin for when they are really needed. maybe this winter.
