I had a good 50miles of rough riding.. thought at first my front brakes were causing problem... so i rode to the next fuel up on my route to find the drive seal had gone and final drive fluid over everything... luck i did not loose the gears...
Hey, At least you can vote in the poll now! Did LV BMW replace the bearings or the whole final drive for $929.00
