BMW R850/1100/1150GS 405 Ceramic Clutch Since the trip report about Mongolia and the BMW R 1100 GS „Monsterkuh” at the latest, you will know about the problem: In the long run, the clutch of the R 850 GS/R 1100 GS/R 1150 GS does not stand the extreme stress of off-road or sports riding and can break down completely within a few seconds. Frequent acceleration and driving at high speed on narrow and steep mountain roads is like an endurance test for the clutch which starts getting hot quickly. Most long distance travellers riding one ofthe above models will be able to tell you, at least roughly, how to change the clutch or where you will find the next workshop. The ceramic clutch has been developed in Africa for use on Africa‘s extreme trails and for off-road trips. Since its introduction it has proved to be reliable. The ceramic clutch is much more durable and can be used under more extreme conditions than the original clutch. Even when climbing uphill on narrow tarmac roads with heavy luggage the clutch will work perfectly. Until now, not a single clutch has broken down! - 1.8 mm laser-cut stainless steel - 8 ceramic friction plates (riveted) - Racing technology - Tried and tested in South Africa for many years and On tracks world-wide - Clutch does not longer overheat under extreme conditions. - Excellent workmanship and exacting tolerance - It normally does not break during the „LIFE OF A MOTORBIKE” Ceramic clutch R 1100 GS 040-0350 Ceramic clutch R 1150 GS 040-0351 Aluminium cylinder guard R 850 GS/1100 GS/1150 GS/Adv & R 850 R/R 1100 R/R 1150 R It has proved to be very reliable when riding thousands of kilometres on off-road tracks. The 4 mm strong aluminium guard buckles in the event of a fall and thus takes up much of the impact energy. The cylinder is well protected against scratches and damage. In addition to this, it further enhances the Boxer look. Highly recommended when riding off-road. 051-0508
