Re: Unusual Chain Problem

IMO their rash of final drive failures seemed to center around the time when they went from the older design like on the 1100 and 1150 bikes to the 1200 bikes when they reworked the final drive and gave it not only a smaller fluid capacity but also touted it as "maint free" and didn't even put a drain plug on it. Then they quietly redesigned it again while basically going "nein, our motorcycles are perfect", just ignore those p/n changes and service manual changes.

Same thing happened with the pre 09 F bikes when they were frying stators and the non GS F bikes when they were puking up rear wheel and driven pulley bearings.
