maybe that's why

Maybe he's saying put it in 5th in order to break the output flange bolts free.

OK - I feel more confident about doing this now. I appreciate all the comments.

I'm going to remove the whole

I'm going to remove the whole thing. I think it will be easier and less messy to replace the cover on my bench. Plus - I need to service the splines as well.

When you've done it, do you do it with the bike in gear? Or what?

So - when you do the job

Do you put the transmission in 2nd? Or leave it in Neutral? What do you do?

Replaced the pin with a shoulder bolt

OK -

Replaced the pin on the R90/6. Only had to remove the seat, battery, and battery tray to do it. Shoulder bolt in place made of 316 stainless steel, should be good for awhile.

At least I won't repeat this problem on that bike.

You have all the answers

Yes - it is an Easy-Clutch! Perfect. For removing the transmission, I'm just trying to do what it said in this guide: http://bmwmotorcycletech.info/inputsplinesthrowout.htm Plus - he seems to say that there should be service on the input shaft every so often, and I figured while I was there I would ...

Still making small progress

Hey Guys - A couple more questions. To remove the transmission, it says shift into 4th or 5th, as it is imperative that the transmission doesn't move. Since the clutch is basically broken, I shifted up to what I thought was 5th last time I messed with the bike. I had to move it today, so I wanted to...

Check Corbin's website

I have a Corbin Gunfighter on my /6, and it's very nice. I'd recommend them.

There's more than that

I'll also have to pull the drive flange off to get the cover off.

The BMW factory tool (23 1 700) is impossible to find.

Any thoughts on this too? Just use a gear puller?

I'm not completely sure

My guess as to why it failed is (per Snowbum's write-up) is that it started to work it's way out, and that's what caused it to fail. Damn - I was hoping that I could replace the cover without pulling the entire transmission, but that does not seem to be the case. It's probably for the best, so that ...
