    K1200R clutch issues resolved

    I have just had my clutch reworked by John Sykes. (4hundredfour) and fitted it yesterday. My 2008 K1200R has 104000km and the clutch sounded like a Ducati dry clutch at idle. John machined the clutch basket,fitted new springs made to his specs, fitted a new set of steel and friction plates and centred the lamellar pack. I won’t mention the cost ‘cos that could change depending on circumstances. John advised that my clutch was just about to loose all drive but his work still cost less than a BMW clutch set with the same old problems. I did buy a k13 thrust adaptor (pushrod) with the extra groove for increased oil flow to the clutch. During the process John answered many questions, keeping me fully informed. My first ride was amazing. No rattle and a smooth progressive take up. No clunk from neutral to first or first to second. It felt as though my gearbox had been rebuilt. Because of the clutch components he uses he is able to add an extra steel and friction plate. His work is amazing so I have included his email should you wish to contact him.

    unfortunately, a utube and google search only turns up former Whitesnake guitarist John Sykes.

    Is he the one that reworked your clutch?????
