Are you still running ~4 weeks and if so - what is the extra charge, if any, to get an exchange shaft
There is not a charge to get an exchange shaft, I just need to inspect your shaft before I can accept it as a core. If it is acceptable, an overhauled shaft can ship out immediatly, otherwise I am running right around 4 weeks for the overhaul of your unit.

How much to Canada?

Just found out that my '94 R100GS drive shaft has a tight u-joint and has the usual 15 or so degrees of twist in the damper. How much do you charge for the complete rubber and u-joint replacement for those of us in Canada? I'm figuring that shipping is going to be higher due to the border crossing issue. Jackd

Hello Jackd,

Pricing is the same ($450)except shipping to Canada will be an extra $15, which brings the total to $465.

Thank you for your interest,

Guy

You'll be getting it next winter.

Thanks Guy,

I will pull it off at the end of this riding season. Then it goes to you for the full treatment. I like the responses that I am reading about your product. I am too late into the present rebuild to go into it deeper.

Hi, How much would shipping to the UK be?. I'm trying to work out if it's viable to send you a unit for repair?

Thanks

Rob

Return shipping to the UK would be $45 US, which includes insurance.

Thank you for your interest,
Guy

What is the drawback of the offroad dampener? wearing off the splines, U-joint faster?

thx

The different grade of dampers are made by increasing the durometer of the urethane, which significantly increases it strength, but also deminishes its ability to absorb shock/vibration. So yes, with an "off road" damper, more stress (that would be absorbed better by a "stock" or "intermediate" damper) will be passed through the shaft to the other components.

I always recommend the stock damper, unless the owner uses the bike in an unusual way. I believe that the "stock/standard" urethane damper is more than adequate for anything that these bikes will see, the other grades are simply for "peace of mind", and most likely overkill.

Unsolicited Testimonial

After 20K miles in South America on a '92 r100gs that weighed 950 lbs with me on it.
Had to pull all this out to lube the splines and check the clutch.
Looks like it did when I put it in in October.
