R1200GS Final drive removal

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.

Schematic


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.

I've done it a few times. Does yours have a lot of corrosion on it? I found that an appropriatly sized socket is the best "drift" to push out the collar.

I'm with Jim on it. It can corrode and stick into the bearing race. I got mine out with heat and a press If you have the swing arm off. I did not need to take it off... it came out with a drift though. You will need a new bearing(s) / seals, also - they are cheap... The left side (bolt side) needle bearing was severely corroded.

In fact when I did mine as a matter of course I replaced the two sleeves, and both bearings and seals while I was at it.

Not much more to say. Sorry...

Useing a heat gun to heat up the pivot pin helps too. BMW like to put some good lock tight on there that will make it a pain to remove the bolt. Some good heat and it comes apart easier. Also while your there don't forget to inspect the driveshaft for damage and clean up the splines.

Thanks! I'll try that. I haven't noticed much corrosion on it, but I'm sure it's there. I'm tearing this apart in the parking lot of my Navy barracks so I'm pretty limited when it comes to tools.

Remove #10 by installing #12 about 4 or 5 turns only and hammer #12 to drift #10. Use a longer bolt than #12 if required to drift #10 all the way out. Then an appropriately sized socket slightly smaller than #10 and an extension can be use to drive #2 out. Hope this helps.

Ummm....wouldn't a bottle of Jim Beam give the neccessary lubrication for easy removal over at the repair shop on Base?

Got it out! New FD is on and everything will get finished and ready for the road in a few days or whenever I get some time off work while the sun is up.
