Advice needed re: R1100RT purchase

I'm going to look at a R1100RT-Police that the seller says needs a clutch. I've put clutches in airheads, but not these newfangled bikes. Is this a straightforward DIY thing, or am I about to bite off more than I can chew? On a scale of 1-10, my mechanics skills are a solid 4-minus, but I'm pretty game to try things.

Also...what might I be looking at in parts cost for this job (I assume, besides clutch, I would do the rear seal and other maintenance while I'm in there...?)

Any other tips greatly appreciated. Thanks!

No frame on this bike, so you'll have to hang the parts from the rafters after you break the bike in half. Or some jacks, etc. Wouldn't think it's a one-man job.

I had a 96 R1100RT that had a cracked intermediate shaft that I had to replace. You can do it one person it just takes a little longer but nothing is really heavy. Your right about looking at replacing the rear engine output seal and the seals on the shafts on the transmission while in there.

If you want to replace input shaft and tranny seals and full clutch assembly you are looking at $1000 for parts. You can half that if no shaft and only main seal.

10 hours in and out + all the running around you'll do and parts chasing.

Looks horrible midway, like you've been in a train wreck.

You'll be a 7+ when you are done!

Does the whole input shaft need to be replaced on these? How often?
