Gear leaver K1200S to K1300S.

As with most of the upgrades BMW made to the 12s becoming the 13s its quite easy to do them yourself but expensive .
I have just bought all the parts to change the gear lever .
Total cost with new BMW parts is 255.This is with 10% discount .
The foot rest is re-used from the 12s.
The reason for doing this is access to the oil filter and a better change as there is a bearing fitted .


These are some of the parts I bought(91).
The foam spacer goes on the ball end not the thread as shown here.
The other main part is the new gear lever,bearing ,bolt and washer .

Also got the Pink Clutch fluid (anyone no in what way the blue differs?)

This is a 1300 Gear lever with the extra part on top to take the ball .

Re: Gear leaver K1200S to K1300S.

The clutch fluid is mineral oil not DOT 4 brake fluid. This is on the cap of the reservoir. Mixing them up will destroy the rubber bits inside the system and you can not easily flush out the dot 4 from the hose of a mineral oil system.

Nice that you are doing your own work. If you have trouble getting all the air out of your clutch system if some gets in PM me, I have suggestions.

I have used the Green push bike mineral fluid but will replaced that tonight with the Pink .
I have had the clutch lever tied back all night and most of the air seems to be out .

I did this mod to my 1200r. I bought a broken 1300r quickshift setup. The rod had snapped. I removed the two remaining parts of the rod, made a new rod and used it. Works a treat.

Re: Gear leaver K1200S to K1300S.

Hi,

I managed to get a set of damaged but repairable Gilles Tuning HP rearsets. The shift lever and rod plus other bits cost me around 80 GBP new from the dealer. I haven't ridden the bike since but the original with the plastic bush was very sloppy and imprecise.
