Re: K1300s clutch problems

Has anyone been able to make contact with John/fourhundred4 lately?

I sent an email through his website http://www.vibefreev.com/contact.htm but got no response.

Thinking about taking my entire clutch assembly out next fall and ship it to him and let him do all his magic on it.
Might as well send along the new nk30/35tv-xl bearing sitting in front of me.

Re: K1300s clutch problems

Pulled out my basket after 1 year riding with replaced springs and opened to inspect the things. For closing back made some extra rivets (tapered, direct fit for thous baskets) and 3 is left unused as made more just in case- will be good for 1 more basket of k1200/k1300.
This is custom made tapered rivets- 7.6mm diameter on a root, 7.1mm diameter on the end. If anyone would like to buy- PM.

Might be interested in the rivets. But can't use them unless i find a source for new springs.

There is no source of thous springs. You need to custom make them. Done a lot of them and they are little bit tricky to manufacture correctly, this is why personally i stopped. Good luck.
