    Quick final drive install question

    So I performed my first tire change and spline greasing. Used loctite 8012, thinking back, I may have applied a little too generously in the shaft but I dont imagine that causing a problem. My question is, would blue threadlocker suffice for the 4 nuts holding on the final drive unit? At least...

    About to do 600 mile oil/filter change and final drive gear oil

    I've put 600 miles on my beautiful beast since picking it up a week ago. Anyone do the first service yet? I've read the manual and its pretty straight forward. Any tips?

    Final drive - bevel box breather removal

    Would someone be able to tell how to remove and clean the breather at the top of the rear drive / bevel box? It is something I have to check to try and figure out what is going on and causing an oil leak.

    Final drive oil leak

    Noticed a small patch at the rear of the bike this morning and discovered that oil has leaked at the final drive onto the rear wheel rim, around the hub where it goes into the rear drive. Before pulling it to pieces, what can I expect when I remove the rear wheel? Is there a final seal that...

    How HOT is your final drive?

    I finally got her back together. Took her for a spin, everything seem to be fine. Looking for hot spots , (yes I'm talking about the rocket) touching the final drive it's hot! I only rode for 25 minutes at 20C, any warmer I wouldn't keep my hand on it. I changed the oil last year. Had no...
