In the end I sent it to MSI. Got it back in record time, looks great! Over the next few weeks I'll be replacing th swing arm and installing the newly rebuilt drive shaft. Certainly hope I get some miles out the repair.

Please keep us updated Captdan....we're all going to need a refurbished driveshaft at some point...the GB folks are likely lamenting the loss by their Packers so, they need the business....plus, you don't have to send your shaft out of the country for repairs any more.

Will do. I know Bruno is a class act, but sending to MSI was the way to go for me, at lest for the moment. Mitch is really good to deal with, seems to know what he's talking about, and record turn around time. Not to mention the drive shaft looks new. I'm completing the swing arm replacement and drive shaft replacement by them end of this month I hope. When the last one blew at 43k it really took out not only the front u joint, but the swing arm as well. I've almost got all the parts acquired. ( got a swing arm on eBay, along with a drive shaft to ave rebuilt ).

Jist wondering why?
Ain't talkin' Afganistan here... He's proven time and time again he does it right.
So why go with an unknown?
