My 06 R1200GS has a slipping clutch at high speeds (120km-160km). It will pick up 500-1000 rpm before it grabs. The bike has 13,000 km
Is this a comman thing or am I doing something wrong?

Sounds like your clutch is not quite disengaged. If you have hand grip protectors see if the clutch handle tip is touching the inside of the protector and not being allowed to fully release. This can happen if the protector swivels and touches.

Thanks:
Thats what it was. No damage to the clutch thank goodness.
The dealer ship has also seen front brakes wear early because the brake lever can not release all the way
Thanks again
