And yes Rick, I just swapped out the 2nd defective ring on the ADV and it failed on the Adventure also. Remember, this is a 463 discontinued ring. There's no doubt now it is the ring.
BMW Daytona has sent another ring, I will have it tomorrow. Of course, no charge. I've been planning a 2week go out West ride with a bud and now just don't know which bike (with low mileage Rick) to take. Maybe have to get back on the LT that I had for a few years.
