Greetings again DriveShaft,
Good points!
I'm still a bit concerned though, as I know of no other shaft-drive motorcycle with such a problematic FD bearing, or one for which there is a recommended service interval.
I still wish BMW would fix the design/component problem once and for all, even if it increased the bike's cost slightly. I'm not expecting this bearing to go 500K, but I feel they should/could increase its average life expectancy at least 3-fold if they wanted to.

Sincerely,

ktmhk53
