Right now we are trapped to the Puget Sound region due to snow in all directions in the mountains. The poor K bike has to share duty with other bikes that come along, so it does not get all the attention but it is my favorite motorcycle by a long shot. I find that interesting, rust inside the motor. Bad working conditions.

My sympathies with the weather. We ride year round here in Texas, but the Summers can be brutal. We don't have the great roads you do either.

Re: K1300s clutch problems

The fourth photo has a pattern that appears to match that of the friction pads resting on the disc. I would say that your opinion that the cycle sat idle too long is correct. It would take a long time to pit the discs that way. Must have been idle for an extended period of time. I suspect that when you ride it regularly, you will never see this problem again. Enjoy. Now I need to add cycling the clutch several times to my periodic run ups, clean my firearms and oil my knives. You have implanted rust phobia in my brain.
