BMW has built a long standing reputation for failed bearings in the rear drive. Isin't a little silly to make matters worse by never changing $3.00 worth of gear lube?
Thier are problems creeping up with the new driveshttp://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=80788
I for one , will not be the least bit suprised if the new drives fail in exactly the same way as the old ones with the bonus of some new problems that didn't exist before.
