Fixed the rear end.

Earlier my rear end was broken and the local dealership was wanting to charge $1600 to fix it. With encouragement, from members, I was able to find the parts I needed on Ebay and the free repair manual from this club's website, I was able to fix it by myself. The trouble was the propeller shaft on the end of the drive shaft. The splines were worn off.
Your were right it was not a difficult fix and I did it for 1/10 of the dealer's price.
So thanks to the members who told me I could fix it myself.

Alternate translation:

Earlier, I broke my ass. The Doctor wanted to charge me $1600 to fix it! I left and came to the forums and found a first-aid book and some bandages. Now I am all better! Thanks guys!


I only understand what I don't understand.

That's why I do all my own work. I ride a bike cause its so much cheaper than a car, gas, insurance, and even my finance payment. I caint ford to pay someone for what they know instead of what they actually do. Plus a trip to the nearest dealership is 40 min away. Thats a long way to go just to have to drop it off and wait till they call me to pick it up. As to this forum, I don't think u could put a price on the volumes of info and the friendship and comrodery with outher riders who are willing to help out a brother with their knowlage and experiences on the same bike. In short, I wrench their for I ride and this forum is one of the most useful tools in my box.

Keep her rubber side down.

As advised by this forum, I just checked my splines. Guess what? They are a mess! So I'm now looking for a previously enjoyed final drive. Anybody got a spare?
