Clutch ..

I notice some folk are not too happy with the clutch operation.
At the weekend I took a look at mine, and the cable is bone dry.
I'm used to a lubricated cable (clutch or throttle) - and gave it a good dose of oil.
Certainly an improvement.

I know most of BMW cables are lined with teflon.
If you lubricate the inner cable, the oil Will ‘eat’ The teflon.
In the beginning the oil helps, in the long run ...... problems !

good point .. I'll live with that, and whack in a replacement if/when that happens.
