BMW 1100GS vs 1150GS final drive gear set swap

I did this very same modification last week.

I had a allen-key (socket drive) and a heat gun that pumps out enough heat to make the screwed in axles come out easily.

Found the change very easy and rewarding.

My only concern is that I am not absolutely certain that I got the uni joints 100% aligned ... may be one or two splines out

The bike certainly runs OK but I am eager to learn what the consequences will be with such misalignment ... any experience out there?

Check the G-spot forum but the if the shaft is out of sync (joints out of line) it'll take more power and wear the ujoints out quicker, if it picks up an odd vibration better take it apart.DB
