I have to tell ya there was no paint mark on the clutch housing, I went over that thing with a magnifying glass before I wiped it off and when I wiped it off I did not use any solvents.

Im putting the housing back on where it was and putting the new clutch plates on where the old ones were. The old plates still had paint marks on em... I think thats the correct position, if not then Ill be parting this bike out when the tranny shakes to obliteration lol. I feel this a lot of nonsense and I am not spending $500 on a new housing cause it has a paint mark.

NOT sure I understand fully your post above AND worry about spending more.
Are you saying:
you had no paint marks on the housing (rearmost part), BUT found good / clear paint marks on both pressure-plate and the cover ??

Then in such case, there is NO PROBLEM and NO WORRY... just put back the housing in same relationship it was relative to the other 2 (pressure-pate and cover).

Even if one was to forget about all these paint marks, I doubt it would shake to break anything. With the K1200 "brick-engine" being rubber-mounted in the frame (via supports), it is even more difficult to notice a new vibration.... unless you are well acquainted how smooth these K1200 can be in ideal conditions.

Re: Clutch Replacement

Yes the old pressure plate and clutch cover had paint marks. The clutch housing did not. However I am replacing the old clutch cover and pressure plate with new ones. So I was just going to put the clutch housing back on the way it came off and mount the new plate and clutch cover 120 degrees apart as the book states. My explanation sucks I know, apologies. to make it easier, the paint marks on the cover plate will be at 8 o'clock, pressure plate 4 o'clock, the part of the clutch housing with the extra drilled holes will be at 1 o'clock. Sorry for confusing the hell out of ya, appreciate you trying to help.

Re: Clutch Replacement

Still had the marks on the old plates?Then no problem?

In case of serious doubts...... a dynamic clutch balancing could be an option?

Quick Google?Here is one in Oregon:

Yeah but the marks on the new plates are in different spots, obviously something is not sinking in here on my part. Im just gonna put the housing back on where I marked it up in the bell housing and put the new plates in with the marks 120 degrees apart and hope for the best. I think its correct.

Re: Clutch Replacement

You have two marks?I'll call them 3-2 so see if they were 120 degrees apart? They should be from the factory.+- a few degrees,no need for scientific equipment.

3....2....and one more missing on the carrier.Would be rather easy to figure out 1 just from looking at the old parts.

Maybe that carrier was perfectly balanced from the factory.They may have some tolerances and that one was spot on so they never marked it.

Re: Clutch Replacement

Mark on the old pressure plate is halfway between 2 of the bolt mounts on flywheel, where as the mark on the new pressure plate is right spot on with one of the bolt holes on the fly wheel. Its a difference of 4'' The old cover plate and the new cover plate marks are damn near in the identical spot.

Re: Clutch Replacement

So the old plates were separated by more than 120 degrees.

Re: Clutch Replacement

Took the the flywheel and 2 plates in to an automotive machine shop to be balanced. $75 for peace of mind.
