Guess that part slipped your mind. I haven't heard of a failed u joint breaking an engine case. Have you?
While I'm at it, if a failed ujoint is a a safety issue then why isn't a failed chain? Seems like either one failing at the wrong time could be troublesome.
Oh, and i got 108k out of my driveshaft. I'll take that anyday over a nasty chain drive.
Since experts like mr Moore haven't been helpful except to beat their chest, here's a quick way to check your
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
You can get it rebuilt for around $300, google Bruno's machine shop in canada.
When you get it back it will have grease access points, If you regularly grease it it will last the life of the bike.
I haven't heard of any chains lasting the life of the bike.
