Spokane Mechanic for GS

Heip, I'm on the road and will be in Spokane soon with a slipping clutch on an 1150 GS. Any suggestions as to who can replace it? It works fine so long as I don't use much power so I'm pretty sure I won't have any trouble getting there. Thanks for your help in advance. Bear

if you are traveling to Spokane from the South... Clarkston, WA is roughly 2 hours South of Spokane (don't know if you are headed down or back home) and has an excellent BMW mechanic Mac's Cycle 509 758-MACS... if you call ask for little Steve and tell them Plumnuts sent you

In Spokane the official BMW dealer is Westside, but I've done a a few GS clutches (I used to work at a BMW shop). Currently employed at Coeur D Alene Powersports in Coeur D'Alene. I'd be glad to help with that, but we'll need to coordinate the whole parts thing.

yes!,,replace it with 2 kawasaki KLR 650's.
no better money spent!
with luck,,you'll find some weak minded soul that will follow the same dead end path to BMW enslavement that you so foolishly followed, and be able to dump that Bavarian turd at a minor loss!
good luck with yer sale!

Try Mike at BeemerBoneyard I know they carry new clutch parts and shipping is very quick.

We clearly need to talk. Please send me a PM. I should be in Spokane on Saturday. Currently 3 hours south of Jackson WY and looking forward to some nice riding. Colorado was fantastic. Thanks, Bear
