OH! What a stupid way to word things! When the book talks about the propeller shaft joint, I assumed the u-joint. I never would have imagined the coupler being called a "sliding joint". *facepalm*

Even then, if the joint was lubricated @ 6,000 miles, the lube should last until 36,000 miles before needing maintenance. That's a long time since most of these smaller bikes get passed around so often with high years and low miles.

I only understand what I don't understand.
