this is what I found when I dismantled the drive shaft to grease it, the bike is 2 1/2 years old with 15500 miles on the clock.





it is now fully lubed.

Hey Copper., that one looks to be one of the worst I`ve seen to date. Forgive my lack of geographical knowledge about your location...are you close to the ocean and/or, has the bike been ridden alot on wet/salted roads? Just curious, thats all... :ale:

I'm 70 miles from the sea as the crow flies, the previous owner rode it in all weathers apparently.

Hey Coppertop, I don't think your post upset anyone, so there's no need to take it that way. All that was said is that the board really needs a link etc. I see no criticsm of you or your post - just an expression of a desire to make it easier for people to find info. :lol:

Was going to post a "They all do that" reply.......but it looks like some other people got there first. :lol:

It is one of the penalties of riding the bike through british winters. Warmish weather plus salt on the roads, and a drive shaft housing that is open at the front end leads to rust. :(

However IMHO its mainly a cosmetic issue rather than worrying from an engineering point of view.

Now you know how the system works Coopertop Every one has a peetake, then the relevent sensible stuff starts.

See in warmer Southern side of UK , you dont get rust like that. To soft for all that around hear.
