Wet clutch on BMW R1200gs LC

I have a new LC BMW GS. I am getting a vibration from the bike. When I go to work in the morning it is fine. About 41km to work. However, when I go home in the afternoon, I get a ugly vibration at approximatly 123km an hour? Could this be the wet clutch?

I believe that the Adventure model is higher, has stone guards etc... and is more orientated to long distance traveling...eg: bigger fuel capacity.

SOURCE: How repair my BMW R1200GS 2007 abs?

It seems the only solution is to exchange the ABS Modulator. I´ve not heard of any repair company that refurbish these parts. It´s an expensive reposition part, and I´ve just got the problem on my 2007. It seems the 2008 GS has a Recall for this problem, but not on the 2007.

How would I verify or check the condition of the clutch (R1200GS) without taking the bike apaert? Can it be done? Would BMW's diagnostics software be able to determine this?


No, Diagnostic software cannot measure your clutch wear.

Remove the starter motor. You will be able to see a small section of the clutch and measure the thickness.

Need to replace clutch


Is your clutch slipping?? Is there an oil leak between the engine/trans?

Replacing the clutch on a R1200GS is a bit involved unless you are very mechanically skilled. You basically split the bike in half to remove the transmission and gain access to the clutch.

If the clutch is NOT slipping, I would suggest removal of the starter motor on the lower LHS of the engine/ trans. and measurement of the clutch disc before you start the work of disassembly.

How do I replace the clutch of my 2007 1200 GS Adventure?


Is your clutch slipping?? Is there an oil leak between the engine/trans?

Replacing the clutch on a R1200GS is a bit involved unless you are very mechanically skilled. You basically split the bike in half to remove the transmission and gain access to the clutch. You need a means of supporting the front half of the bike under the engine while you remove the back half of the bike. Disconnect electrical harness from the rear, disconnect brake lines to the rear of the bike. remove throttle bodies etc. takes 2-3 hours for a skilled mechanic to get the clutch out, then 4-6 hours to put all back together again CORRECTLY!

If the clutch is NOT slipping, I would suggest removal of the starter motor on the lower LHS of the engine/ trans. and measurement of the clutch disc before you start the work of disassembly
