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.

As a note, I pulled the driveshaft on my 02 GS at 100K miles and sent it off to be refurbished (not by Bruno, by Machine Services Industry in Wisconsin). Both ends blew apart within 20K miles.

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.
