Yes, but for creamy-smooth shifting you can't beat cheese-whizz. Covered udder the warranty too.

It is your shifting technique, ask any BMW service rep, they have been telling you that for years, don't you know anything?

My 2003 GoldWing did the same thing, buttery smooth shifts when cold, ugly clunky when warm. One of the worst shifting bikes I've owned (of around 50 or so).



Have a K1200LT now which is much better.

No, No, Limburger is the cheese of choice. Come to think of it, this could be behind the sour smelling exaust also.

If BMW's past record of sidestands, exploding hubs and surging problems are any indication they may just admit something might be wrong by around 2012.

This is going to sound odd, but here goes...have noticed on SOME BMWs, that if you DON'T pull the clutch all the way in they shifted better. All of these were cable accutated clutches though, the new K clutch is juice. Don't remember that sort of garbage on my K12GT. It was kinda like the clutch went past engaged, felt like trying to change gears while slipping the clutch while still under power. But, um, normal, guess it all depends on what you call normal, I don't think so.



Be sure to work all the bugs out. Want to replace my aging high milage K1200LT with a used on of those in a few years...

I Was Wondering If Anybody Know How To Adjust Hydraulic Clutch On A 2000 Suz Intruder. It Only Does It Sometimes, But When You Start It And It In Neutral And Clutch In All The Way And You Put In Gear, It Automatic Dies Like The Clutch Not In All The Way. It Only Does It Sometimes. I Just Got The Bike About A Month Ago And I Still Learning About This Bike. Someone Please Help Me!!!!
