This was the company’s aim when designing this upgrade kit for the BMW K1200 Sport Tourer series. The upgrade kit has a couple of discs more than the original stack, the engine torque being split on a major surface, it results in a perfectly effective clutch, more responsive, durable and softer at the hand control. The same kit has also been made in a lighter version where the plain plates are made in high-strength, high-quality Ergal alloy so that the inertial force is reduced. The two kits are a straight replacement for the OE clutch and sold complete with all lined and plain discs. SURFLEX S.R.L.
