Final drive free play GSA 1200
« on: November 10, 2012, 05:49:05 pm »
Just changed FD oil and brake pads. Greased the prop shaft spline. There is no play on the FD but on the shaft from the gearbox when in gear there is quite a lot of play. Is this normal? When all back together and bike in gear you can move the rear wheel back and forth about 5 degrees!!

That sounds about normal.

I think mine is more than that.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
