You basically split the bike in half. You need a way to support the machine under the engine and then remove the whole rear section of the bike. You will have to disconnect the brake lines to the rear brakes and remove the wiring harness to the rear section of the bike. It is not a job for the timid..... but can be done if you have some mechanical aptitude and take your time.

Much easier on the R1200GS than the R1200CL listed in your title

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.
