Awesome suggestion, I wish I would have thought of that... It makes so much sense. Must have slipped my mind.

If you don't realize it, that is sarcasm.

I have no knowledge on how to go about this procedure with the right cleaning agents or things I should look for while cleaning like damage that could have happened.

If you were a doctor and were told to perform surgery on a patient I assume that's how you would do it as well. And I would not want you to be my doctor.

Hi Leo,

Have you been able to do any riding on this bike since last year? You did have it running? How did the four bolts in the driveshaft/trans coupling get damaged? Did you remove the transmission?

The swing arm has gear oil in it and may need a new rubber boot if it leaks.

The bolts that hold the driveshaft to the transmission flange were the long style when this bike was built and they used special washers. The washers broke often and most of us now use the later style short bolts that do not use the washers.
This is the part # for the short bolts; 26 11 1 242 297

You should take this apart and clean it up. Reassemble with good parts. Directions are in your Clymer's manual.

So you know what's wrong, that's a start.
Look around for damage. Was there any? If so how bad? If you don't what to look for post up pictures of the damage
And plenty of folks will let you know what they think.

Your earlier posts indicate that you removed and reinstalled the transmission and the swingarm. Repairing this isn't any more difficult than that, or at the very least it starts with those steps.

So again - actual question - what is holding you back?

The other thing you should think about is that you have a manual which specifies the torque for those bolts but you didn't (or couldn't) follow it. If you can't achieve correct assembly on your own, which is completely understandable, get some help.
