Mine does the same and scared the crap out of me. Then I did the same teat on three other GSAs and found this to be normal.

Backlash

Gees--I got it all over. The BMW, Jeep, Silverado, John Deere, and you should see what happens when I cast my light lure with my baitcaster into the wind.

Thanks Bobby. Damn....I just replaced one on an 1100 and never even realised it was full of rubber.

No problem. I am sending mine out to Bruno as a matter of fact. It has notched in one direction, not horribly, but enough that it needs addressed.

I found another used one on the flea market. But its condition is not much better. Still functional while I send the original out.

68,000 miles on the piece. Bruno will charge 380 USD to rebuild it with u-joints with grease fittings that can be serviced. That is about half what a new OEM shaft is. I'll keep the other one as a spare in case a fellow GSpotter has an emergency.

Has anyone found a service that will change the rubber damper in the DS?

I certainly haven't heard. There was a hilarious thread on UKGSer with a guy whose new aftermarket airhead shaft goes south and he repairs it himself using urethane.

I'll see if I can find it, it's a good read.
