By the way, see that clip ring back in there? Might be a good idea to get a new one AND the seal that it holds in there, I assume that there is one there like my Suzuki that looked just like this. Too bad the owners service manuals don't show this!G'day all, so glad i read a bunch of threads this week, and made myself good and paranoid.
I changed the final drive oil and it was quite dark, and VERY smelly, so it started me thinking about what other maintenance items might have been missed (Not the engine - the servicing seems to be immaculate there!)
So today, I ripped off the final drive to check the splines and . . . .
No real wear on the splines on the shaft either, but. ......
A good clean, degrease and then liberal application of fresh Moly grease should keep it alive for a while to come yet, but ****, that one was nasty looking!
Then again, you may have already done all that.
