One possibility is that the clutch nut O-ring dried out and oil fouled the clutch plate so it may or may not be a red flag.

Or, someone owned it who simply can't drive a clutched anything. That can fry a clutch pronto. And everything else is fine.
I can explain it to you, but, I can't understand it for you.

I've got a very nice 1985 K100 Purple Dragon that is my daily rider. I'm looking to sell it soon, as I just picked up a 71 Moto Guzzi 750 that I want to build up.
It's got newer Shinko tires, recent full tuneup and maintenance, is guaranteed reliable. Full BMW hard luggage. Ready to ride anywhere anytime. Cross country, you name it.

Let me know if you might be interested!

Eh? Looking To Buy a 90 BMW K75S

OK, I am new here but here it goes. I have an opportunity to buy a K75S, but it has some issues. The hand clutch will not pull back. The engine runs smoothly, but it will not move once put into gear and I can hear a metallic sound coming from the middle of the bike like something is loose and just spinning. I am somewhat of a repair myself kind of guy, but wondering if I would be getting in way over my head if I bought this. I do not know much about the BMW's, but any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Oh yeah the bike is in good condition, not spotless and has been sitting for about a year and half.

Either new clutch or input shaft splines. Lots of work to do on a K. If done by a workshop then repair costs will be more than running bike is worth.
