Just finished spline lube

Well I just finished lubing the splines, got her all back together. And then noticed a 1" X 3" spacer on the floor. I guess it goes inside the ring gear on the final drive......Now I have to do it all over again,

And then you will thump your chest and Ar Ar Ar Ar and feel proud of what you have accomplished and you will look upon your work and you will say, "I am man."

And just think, you will really know how to take it apart and put it back together! It's like extra practice to get to know your bike even better.

You would have felt a really bad grinding noise if that was left out. Be glad you found it before you damaged something.

The second time took only 30 minutes...I did not need to do a lot of things previously. I only removed the right lower shock mount, centerstand, with ratchet straps to compress shocks and removed axle with wrench not socket. I think I could do a complete lube in a hour now. Yup live and learn
