Question about 2008 BMW K 1200 GT
New bike 2008 k1200 gt Two problems: 1) Bike is hard to start when hot, need to wait until it cools.
2) Clutch burned out at 1500km.
Had new battery put in and starter motor replaced under warrantee and new clutch plates and slave cylinder replaced.
Bike was ok for a month, now starting issue is occuring again.
Has anyone experienced anything like this?
Also, is it possible that the clutch is not fully releasing hence causing the bike to heat too much thereby damaging the starter motor?
Any advice would be appreciated.
If the clutch burned out it must have been slipping causing lots of heat inside were the starter is, all this extra heat wont do the starter any good at all, if its still under warrantee get it back as its clearly not right,, not at all like bmw?
