well, i had written a longer post, but lost it .  

ultimately, I was worried about replacing pressure plates because of the amount of drilling on the original plates from the for balancing.  i spoke with max bmw about how they balance the clutch after they work on it...they claimed they dont...they just replace the pressure plates and the friction disc as a whole and claim they haven't had problems

maybe the whole clutch balance argument is really another example of German over engineering (which is awesome by the way..the service manager at Max I spoke with said he has a K75 with 5000000 miles on it...fantastic).

I will try to have my presure plates resurfaced, and if I can't i will just replace the friction disk and go from there.

any comments from the more expert with the K bikes.
