Glad we caught it. Another thing, not any grease will do. BMW has a special type for this, and I've heard people use "Honda Moly" , same stuff for the transmission splines. You want to clean the part really well, spread on a tiny amount of lube and wipe off the excess. I use Q-tips to get in the hard to reach areas.
I was was riding in the hills last week and a damn goat came and knocked me off my bike. There behooves all up in my face and shit...
