Re: Low mileage clutch slipping

Welcome to the forum Glen.

Are you using the proper oil ?

Re: Low mileage clutch slipping

Oil was my first thought, too. Change the oil.

Is the "1335 miles" a typo? Could it be 13,500 or 135,000 miles? Even 13,500 is not enough to explain clutch slippage from wear.

Re: Low mileage clutch slipping

Any chance that when the clutch was replaced that the half ball from the clutch slave cylinder didnt engage at the flat spot?

Re: Low mileage clutch slipping

Common fault on ks.
Poor oil supply to the clutch then sliping.
Have a look at the sticky thread in the K1300s Tec section .
Mine is in having a new clutch at the moment.
