This remanufacturing extends to all paralever driveshafts, including airheads and hexheads? Looks very nice!

Actually, it only applies to the Airhead GS and R bikes. I should have clarified that, thanks for asking.

R bikes, you mean 1100 and 1150 "oilheads" but not the R1200 "hexheads", right?

Only the Airhead Paralever bikes built between 1987 and 1995. When the Oilheads came out in 1994, they had a different rear suspension, I believe it was dubbed the Telelever.

The Telelever refers to the oilhead's front wishbone-style suspension.

Thanks, it makes sense now that I think about it. Obviously my knowledge is limited outside the Airheads.

Sorry for the misinformation Gadget Boy.

Guy,

I pulled my driveshaft (1993 R100GS) just now and found approximately 15 degress of twist, so I am thinking it is time to send it your way. The question is do I replace the u-joints as well? They seems fine, but are original to the bike as far as I know. Obviously I am leaning towards replacement...

How's your turn-around time right now?

SL

SL,

Carefully inspect the shaft for movement within the u-joints, if there is any at all, they should be replaced. It is your call if the joints look to be in servicable condition, i have done quite a few shafts with replacing the damper only, but most of them have been BMW replacements with light mileage. Keep in mind, that if the shaft is the original, there hasn't been any new lube added to the needles in 14 or so years.

Turnaround time is running around 4+weeks at the moment, but I do offer exchange units that can shorten the wait considerably.

Thank you for your interest,
Guy

Thanks Guy,

Email headed your way. Think I will go for the complete service and not just damper replacement.

I just pulled the 78,000 km old driveshaft out of my '93 R100R and found SIXTEEN degrees of twist in the rubber, and a tiny amount of play in the rear uni. Front is still tight as new. The rubber dampener appears to have both twisted in the housing, AND torn free of its vulcanising to the inner shaft. I reckon the whole service is in order.

Have you done an R100R shaft before? I don't know whether they are the same part as the GS shaft, but I expect the unis at least are the same. I don't mind sending the shaft over in the mail.

Thanks for the service, Guy. I REALLY didn't want to blow over a grand ($AUD) on a new shaft!

I'm going to be pulling the drive shaft from my '95 GS airhead after this weekends Iron Butt

In preperation for Alaska I'm going to send it right off to you.

Are you still running ~4 weeks and if so - what is the extra charge, if any, to get an exchange shaft

The driveshaft in the R100R is identical to the unit in the R100GS, and I have rebuilt several of them. The condition of the damper seems about right for the miles on the bike. (I emailed you also.)

Thank you for your interest.
