hello guys I am in Tasmania doing the long ride on my k1100lt that is going fine mostly. At idle itís like a steel bucket full of rocks and sometimes it quirens down with clutch in and of course at higher revs nonoise to be heard. I do not k ow if the following is related but while riding up cradle mountain†I suddenly had no clutch feel nor could I drive the rear wheel. So there I am up a steep incline no edge of road and a fully laden tourer. I reversed to the nearest clearing got her up on the centre stand and could find no fault as I know had a full clutch lever and could drive the wheel through all gears. It was as if the clutch had been selected despite clutch lever position. Where to look? The cable is fine the noise is still there but my confidence is wavering. ??????

Have you had the gearbox out and if so did you lube the wire ring behind the diaphragm spring. They can make a god awful noise if dry and when you pull the clutch in it goes away.
The no drive could also be associated with the gearbox being out and that is the clutch actuation arm at the rear of rhe box can ride up and catch if not adjusted correctly.
I got your phone video but for some reason (probably me) I cant get it to play.

Found out after some exploraty surgery found some dodgy vacuum lines which caused the bottom end clunk noise and since I recently changed clutch and cables adjusted those up as they were too slack which meant they could go over centre and lock out. All fixed and no damage done I hope.

It's only happened to me once but the reason I lost the clutch one day was that a fluke piece of gravel somehow manged to leap in between the clutch arm and exhaust when I had the clutch pulled in to shift. This kept the clutch from engaging when I let the lever go. (And this was on a paved road so a piece of gravel of the right size finding that particular spot to get to at that particular time really was a fluke.)

I saw the piece of gravel was stuck there when I pulled over to figure what was wrong. Once I pulled in the clutch lever all of the way and flicked it out of the way everything went back to normal.

If something similar happened to you then it may have fallen out if you pulled in the clutch when putting it on the center stand.

+1

has happened to me a. oupme of times 🙄

but i thougt it only could happen because i have a 16v exhaust and the original 8v rear fender that is a bit shorter than the one on the 16v†

Yep, only the 4V Ks are susceptible to this happening due to that big rectangular chunk of exhaust under the transmission. Mine happened on a K1100LT.

Wow who would have thought that could happen but the thought did hit me but I disregarded it as extremely unlikely but on reflection there was a fair bit of loose blue metal in parts. Letís see what today brings as we go down the rugged west coast of Tassie and through to Strahan on a Sunday no less.

Survived the trip and the LTacquitted herself very well and no real dramas unlike many other Marques. Not surprising but of concern is the lack of knowledge most seem to have of their own machines so the mechanics in Hobart were working their bottoms off. One chap bought a new tyre $438 ouch maybe cause itís so wide and does not corner well. Anyhow home safe and sound 4387 kilometers this week.
