Here's my FD story - 2005 R1200GS

Just got back from Labrador highway trip - first 80 miles (from NF) had potholes the size of Lake Champlain! In Baie comeau - started hearing a clank every shift. Just got home. Pinion was loose, Sent it to Max. They took it apart, pinion bearing (They've never seen this before - HA!)was failed and the main bearing was on it's way. Case was damaged and is no longer available so rebuild not an option. ABS sensor was covered in metal, red failure trianagle and brake failure light were on intermittently during the trip and then on for good the last 3 days of a 20 day trip. Oil change per maintenance schedule. 66K on bike. Anyone have a used drive???

Hey Pzvt,
I've got all my parts.
The axle is shot (so they say but I'm not sure myself) and the sealed bearing is still pressed in but no good.
All else is good. If you can tell me the pieces you need, I'd be happy to send them out for the cost of shipping.

With a 2 year warranty on my FD, I can't see hanging on to it other than for garage art or hoarding purposes
