See? A living example of the dichotomy, right there.
E2, I hope it keeps working for you. I really do. If every driveshaft lasted 108K miles we wouldn't be having this discussion at all.

Put the bike in neutral on the centerstand.
rotate the wheel, if you hear a clunk or feel play you have bad ujoint. and your driveshaft needs to be rebuilt
That sounds like a good plan. Sorta like I suggested in post #6.
