Driveshaft Slip Yoke
« on: November 30, 2015, 03:04:34 pm »
Just looking if there is any other maintenance items I may need handle as time goes on... didn't see anything on a search so my guess I may not need to worry...

Any other Driveline service recommended other than final drive oil changes ?

Tx

According to the manual, the final drive oil change happens only once, at the 500 mile mark, then never again. Which kind of makes sense since the final drive sees no combustion, the oil won't get contaminated with anything and it doesn't get hot enough for the oil to lose its viscosity over time.

I over maintain everything, the extra 5 minutes and $3 of quality gear oil it will take mandates it done on every LOF, the lifetime of serenity when rollin' 5000km from home is priceless to me.... It also says 16,000km between oil changes - my bike will never see over 8K between intervals...

I was more curious about if anyone was lubing the slip yoke or u-joints as it was required on my RT,, but taking out the shaft on that was peanuts...
