Drive saft change on 1150 gs

I am thinking to change it on my own. Is it tricky? Has anyone done it and have some pictures of the work?

It's not hard, but it requires a heat gun, a 30 mm socket, and a 12 mm hex, along with a standard set of hand tools. The final drive has to come off. I've always taken the swingarm off too, but I just read a thread on another board where guys are doing it without removing the swingarm.

Out of curiosity, why are you replacing it?

If you end up separating the two halves of the shaft, be sure to install / re-install with the uni-joints aligned.
There are some threads on here about it and YES it does make a difference, DAMHIK
