I took my 07 GT into the shop today as the clutch is making a squeal when taking off under load. Never ever tell the wife that she's the load that induces the squealing clutch! LOL!
They are going to replace the clutch, basket and bolts tomorrow under goodwill!
They informed me that BMW is only going to honour this fix until the end of November after that it's up to you (my warranty expired in August).
I suggest that if you suspect this problem ... get them to look at it before it's too late. I don't know if there will be an expiry date in the US.
My shop (Endras BMW in Ajax, Ontario) has been fantastic about this and other issues, but I fear all dealers are not the same.
Just a heads up 'cause I love this bike and want to get many more years of trouble free riding like I got on my 85 K100RT.
