HELP!! 2008 wheel bearing caused rear drive leak?

while riding my 2008 GS1200 (96k) in one of the turns i felt the back end go wobbly on me. Unsure of the issue, i immediately called sierra bmw in reno,nv to troubleshoot, i asked them for possible causes.. for liabilities sake they gave me no answer.

i drove home conservatively, when i got in there was oil all over the wheel, brake, etc. the back end of the bike felt wobbly and loose. has anyone else ever had something like this happen? i would like to repair it myself, does anyone have any insight? thank you-kalil

It is certainly repairable, and some people can do it themselves, but you do need a few special tools!

Wow, that was nice work in the link.
You are right about the tools though.
Makes the 1100 FD repair look easy.
Wonder how I would go with normal pullers, scrap steel plate, blocks of wood etc?

Mine was just one way. I have seen it done with a combination of pullers. The one piece that is hard to fake is the round stepped block. You need something like it to pull the wheel carrier.
