Original final drive kicked the bucket at around 23K miles, bought a new one from Max BMW as well as some Galfer rotors. I was hoping that it would be a smooth process but I've had issue after issue. Bike is a 2006 standard GS
Right now I'm stuck on removing the collar that slides into the outside lower pivot point connecting the final drive to the swingarm. It moved a little when I removed the Torx bolt from the opposite end but it has not moved a bit since. Destroyed several drift pins and have pretty much come to terms with having to order all new collars and bolt.
Parts that are stuck
02 33 17 7 665 148 PIVOT PIN
16 33 11 7 684 996 GASKET RING - 38X30X2,5
10 33 17 7 665 149 PIVOT PIN
I've been following these instructions for the removal, but I'm not having any luck/missing something.
Any help or experience is much appreciated. I have never heard or read about anyone replacing one of these warlocks by themselves, so I'll do a write up when I'm done.
